A Warm Welcome to Prospective Students!
Students in their last three years of secondary school and all other interested persons have can attend a number of informative events to help them better understand the specific course content of the individual degree programmes, potential future professions and career opportunities, study conditions at the BTU, admissions requirements and enrolment deadlines.These events feature specially-prepared lectures for our future students, in addition to excursions and dialogue with enrolled students and professors. This overall aim of the programme is to introduce prospective students to real BTU study conditions and to assist them in choosing the most appropriate study subject. We also offer a number of cultural, sightseeing and free-time activities.And don’t forget: you can also drop by for a bite to eat at our main university cafeteria (Mensa)!
If you want to know if you are suited for engineering studies you can simply take the Think Ing. test. It takes about 30 minutes to complete and you will be expected to answer 40 questions from a wide range of scientific fields. Go to the THINK ING. Website and take the 30-minute aptitude test. Once completed, you’ll have a feeling of whether or not engineering studies are right for you.
Should I go to university? Will I succeed? Is it right for me? These are the kinds of questions that go through the heads of secondary school graduates before they decide to attend university and face the dizzying array of engineering degree programmes. Given the complexity of engineering studies, they would rather know beforehand for which subjects they are best suited. www.think-ing.de provides prospective students with a quick indication of their academic prospects.
The aptitude test, which has recently been revised, poses questions from various fields of knowledge that are of importance for engineering studies: mathematical comprehension, logic, talent in the technological and natural science fields, in addition to general knowledge questions. Upon completion, participants are given a comprehensive assessment, which among other things, is in an indication of their suitability for engineering studies.
“There is a great uncertainty among secondary school students and graduates as to whether engineering studies are right for them. This is why we recommend they take the aptitude test at www.think-ing.de. It is a valuable tool that allows potential applicants to anonymously test themselves and make an informed decision“, according to Wolfgang Gollub, Head of Human Resources Planning/THINK ING., Employers' Association of German Metalworkers.
