So there's a lot of speculation about which Universities are better for Engineering. Whether to go to the US or to Germany? I am faced with a similar scenario. I am planning to do my Masters in Engineering. One side says that US education system is better for it is more versatile, and universities are well known throughout the world. On the other hand, no one (i'm being subjective) can every question German engineering. However, Germany has a rigid system of education and the universities are not well known. Being from Indian, I have 2 options, either appear for a GRE or give German proficiency tests. However I have no clue as to which of the two options I should select for I do not know anything about how education actually is in either of the two countries. I don't mind doing either, so which is better? Cheaper? More valuable in the long term? Please help. Side note : If I go to the USA I am thinking of pursuing a career in HVAC/R industry. If I go to Germany, it would be in automobile engineering and the like.
