The Faculty of Engineering offers the Christoph-Rüchardt scholarship, which is a part funding of 2400 Euro per year. To be eligible for this scholarship, your final Bachelor's grade has to be 1,5 (German grading system) which is equivalent to a CGPA of 3,5 out of 4.

It is very difficult for foreign students to get a scholarship from a German funding agency. Most of them have selection procedures that include interviews and assessment centers. Hence, advanced German proficiency is needed. In addition, applicants are usually required to have excellent grades and be involved in volunteer activities.

You should therefore have a solid financial basis for the whole duration of the Master's programme, before deciding to come to Germany.
