My name is Lu Huahan from China.
I am a student in the Master Course in Electrical Engineering. The lectures are offered in German and in English, because we Master students usually do not have the sufficient German language background from the beginning on. So before the studies start, an intensive Language and Integration Course is offered that is continued throughout the first two semesters.
The schedule of my Master program is very free: I can choose any course from the existing five branches during the first semester and afterwards have to select and fix a study plan.
The lectures are closely linked to industries, some contents deal even with very recent developments in research. Sometimes the professors invite staff from big enterprises to give us a speech, so that we can have a larger view of current developments in industry- this is very important for us, the engineering students.
The other important thing is certainly living in Germany. For me, the first important thing is a comfortable dormitory- and here I can afford it! My dorm is a private apartment, which means I have a bedroom, a kitchen and a bathroom for myself! And it is also very close to university, only 10 minutes by foot.
The food in the refectory, the Mensa, is delicious and cheaper compared to China.
Furthermore the ISGS-staff are really warm-hearted and help a lt. When I first arrived in Germany I didn’t know anything and found all very strange. However, ISGS arranged everything for us: The dorm, the registration at the town hall, the visa extension, a city and campus tour… I now feel just like at home.
Furthermore I enjoy the many cultural and social activities: The barbecues, the parties, trips to beautiful cities like Heidelberg and Berlin and hiking tours through the beautiful forests surrounding Kaiserslautern.
I am sure you will like it here.
我是来自中国的吕化寒,学习的是凯泽斯劳腾大学电子工程系提供的硕士课程. 课程有部分是英语授课,部分是德语授课,因为很多人比如我,刚开始的时候德语基础不 够好,或者很多都是零基础德语,所以在正式开学之前,ISGS给大家提供了德语课程,并且 一直持续到第一个学期或者第二个学期结束(根据德语程度不同). 硕士课程的安排是很自由的,在第一个学期,可以选择系里面各个分支下的课程,(比如自 控,数字,微电,通信等),然后到第一个学期结束后,根据自己的兴趣,定下自己的学习方 向和具体的学习计划. 提供的硕士课程与工业是密切联系的,甚至有很多都是最新最前沿的研究.教授还经常会 从公司中请具体从事这方面工作的人来做报告,从而使我们可以了解到工业中在使用的 技术,可以理论与实际相联系.这对一个工程科的学生来讲是很重要的. 除了学习方面,另外最重要的当然就是生活方面了.ISGS会提前给将要到来的同学们安排 好宿舍,很方便.宿舍是单独居所的,有一间卧室,一间厨房和一间浴室卫生间,都是自己 独用,住起来很舒服.并且我所在的宿舍ALCATRATZE离学校很近,走路只需10分钟. 吃饭也很方便,MENSA里提供的饭菜比很多德国其他大学要便宜一点,并且味道不错,省去 了自己做饭的烦恼. 还有要说的是,ISGS办公室真的是非常的热心!初到德国,一般都会感到很陌生,但是ISGS 会帮我们去延签,去注册,并且还提供对城市和对学校的导游,很快就使大家对这个城市 熟悉起来.并且这里经常会提供很多活动,比如烧烤拉,party拉,还会组织去别的城市游 玩,比如我参加过去海德堡和柏林的,还有去凯劳附近森林的踏足. 总之,我很确定来这里读书的人会喜欢上这个地方!
