Since 2009, the annual three-week study-trip has been performed in cooperation with RWTH Aachen University and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) that has been funding the research journey. Its essential purpose is to introduce the scholars to life in Germany and to the completely different colleges at RWTH Aachen University. “Studying the German language was not so difficult, only in the beginning,” mentioned Murooj al Busaidi, third 12 months pupil in BSc Computer Sciences who has studied German for 3 semesters. She is trying ahead to making use of the language and experiencing the nation quickly. Like a lot of the different GUtech college students, Murooj can be touring for the primary time to Germany and to Europe. “I like to learn more about Europe and especially about Germany. I am planning to do my Master’s there,” mentioned Huda al Jahwari, BSc Logistics pupil. “Aachen is a student city and the university has many different departments including a well-known Logistics Department,” defined Huda.
Mustafa Mohammed is finding out Mechanical Engineering at GUtech. He has been receiving a research scholarship from the Egyptian and Omani governments. “RWTH Aachen University is one of the leading universities in Europe. I am very happy to get the opportunity to attend this special language course and to get to know the university. I am planning to study my Master’s in Germany,” he mentioned. GUtech presents German language courses for inexperienced persons for all BSc or BEng college students. For the language course, the scholars needed to submit a letter of motivation and different paperwork. The chosen candidates have been then interviewed by the choice committee. “This year, we had an increased number of applicants. More than 100 students from all academic programmes applied for only 15 seats. One of the requirements was that they had studied one or two semesters of German,” mentioned Claudia Schmidt, consultant of the DAAD and German Lecturer at GUtech.
For a lot of the college students it’s their first journey to Germany. Students from the departments of Applied Geosciences, Engineering, International Business and Service Management, Computer Sciences will attend the course. GUtech promotes research and analysis trade particularly with RWTH Aachen University and with different universities in Europe.
