Hi all, May be this topic has been discussed many times in forums. I am a design engineer(experience of 2+ years in control systems, embedded) from India wishing to pursue my masters in applied physics(optics or solid state physics or photonics). I took the ielts exam and got overall of 6.5 . I was planning to apply for european universities preferably Germany. While I took this step, I am confused as to which universities should I apply for since my experience was in embedded and control systems. As most of the universities say relevant work experience is a plus, I don't have a relevant work experience( considering the fact that I worked with different controllers and circuit design). So which universities should I look for in Germany? Does it really mean that I will be given the least preference? Is there any way to strengthen my application to universities? I did some courses in edx(but I dont think that will be really helpful for me). Kindly give me some guidance. Thanks!
