The Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences, (in German: Hochschule Darmstadt (h_da)) in Darmstadt, Germany, plays a significant role among German Universities of Applied Sciences. It is internationally known for its outstanding achievements in the areas of engineering and computer science. Also, the selection criteria for this university are the toughest among the universities of applied sciences in Germany.[citation needed] The University has the highest number of industrial linkage programs, compared to the rest of the universities of applied sciences.[citation needed]

History[edit]

The roots of University of Applied Sciences Darmstadt goes back to1876[1] along with Technische Universität Darmstadt(the first electrical engineering chair and inventions fame), when both these Universities were an integrated entities, a need for a separate industry based research educational institution was felt in early 1930s, finally University of Applied sciences emerged as a separate industry based research educational institution in 1971 and is the largest University of Applied Sciences in Hesse (German: Hessen) with about 11,000 students.

Outcomes and Revolution in education system of Germany[edit]

In 1971 when Hochschule Darmstadt was established, other regions of the Hesse also felt the need of such industry based educational institutions.[2] In later years a heavy number of Hochschule were established all across Germany. As a result of this,today the German industry's engineering workforce is propelled by students of the Hochschule.

Campus[edit]

The Main campus of the Hochschule Darmstadt lies at the Haardtring office, but, the campus is evenly distributed all across the city of Darmstadt at different locations. A cluster of Old and Modern university buildings are visible across the city of Darmstadt. The media campus is in Dieburg.

Admission Procedure into Engineering Disciplines[edit]

The competition amongst the foreign as well as EU nationals for admission into Hochschule Darmstadt is quite high. There are a number of alternative admission criterion available for the students. The prospective students have to match any of the following criterion

  • A valid GRE score card at least 1200 out of 1600, and TOEFL or IELTS score card.
  • Students from China have to show English proficiency certificate apart from GRE, TOEFL
  • Students from India have to include a valid GATE score card at least 90 percentile.
  • Industrial work experience of at least 6 months on an international project.

The above are true only in case of certain programs and is not a generic requirement.

University of Applied Sciences Ranking[edit]

Hochschule Darmstadt is a reputed institute and it has consistently ranked high on the DAAD rankings list closely rivaled by Hochschule Karlsruhe. Maintaining its reputation in the specializations of Microelectronics and Robotics, Hochschule Darmstadt has contributed to some of the major industrial developments in Germany, including REIS, Mitsubishi Robot modules.
