CHE Master's Ranking, December 2019

Whoever wants to follow up a bachelor's degree with a master's degree is faced with a plethora of offers and the question of which is the most suitable. The ranking of master's degree programs is intended to help applicants make the right choice for them. The current issue of "ZEIT CAMPUS" contains a new ranking of master's programs in which the Center for Higher Education Development (CHE) compares the study programs offered in 11 to 15 different criteria, depending on the subject, and publishes a selection. Particularly in the master's program, the focus is on research; students should come into contact with cutting-edge research.

Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences can achieve excellent rankings in the current ranking with three master's degree programs at once: The master's program Civil Engineering is in the top group in the category "degrees in a reasonable time," while the master's programs Electrical Engineering and Information Technology and Mechanical Engineering each in the category "International Orientation in Master's Studies" and Mechanical Engineering also achieves a top place in the category "Research Funds per Professor" - so is represented twice in a top group.

CHE University Ranking, May 2019

Every year, one third of the subjects are re-evaluated in the CHE University Ranking. This year, Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences (HsKA) is therefore represented by its study programs in architecture, civil engineering, electrical engineering and information technology, automotive technology, mechanical engineering and mechatronics. Each of these study programs was able to achieve multiple placements in the top group:

Architecture
The students are particularly impressed by this offer in six categories at once (evaluation in the top group): support by lecturers, the range of courses, the offers for career orientation, the practical relevance, the spatial situation and the general study situation. In teaching and research, the degrees in reasonable time stand out in the Bachelor's and Master's programs (each in the top group).

Civil Engineering
Also this study offer convinces in particular by the conclusions in appropriate time both with the Bachelor and with the master course of studies as well as the contact to the professional practice in the Bachelor course of studies. The spatial situation is also particularly emphasized by the students here.

Electrical and Information Engineering
These study programs achieve rankings in the top group in three categories: in support at the beginning of studies, in contact with professional practice in bachelor studies, and in international orientation in master studies.

Vehicle Technology
Here, students particularly emphasize the equipment in the internship labs. The study program also achieves top rankings in support at the beginning of studies and, in both the bachelor's and master's programs, in contact with professional practice and in international orientation. It also ranks in the top group in attracting research funding (per professor)

Machine Engineering
The students are really enthusiastic about this study program; in their assessment, the program achieves a top position in eleven categories: in supervision by lecturers, in support during studies, in the range of courses, in the organization of studies, in examinations, in offers for career orientation, in practical relevance, in support for studying abroad, in the IT infrastructure, in the equipment of the internship laboratories and in the general study situation. The study program is also in the top group in support at the beginning of studies, in contact with professional practice in the bachelor's program, in the international orientation in the master's program and in the acquisition of research funds (per professor).

Mechatronics
The students are particularly convinced by the range of courses and the equipment of the practical laboratories. The offer can also impress with the degrees in a reasonable time in the master's program, the extent of the interlocking of the learning locations in the dual studies, in the support at the beginning of the studies, in the contact with professional practice and the international orientation in the master's program, as well as in the acquisition of research funds (per professor)

Ranking results for other study programs come from the CHE surveys of previous years. The HsKA achieved a top result in 2018 with its Informatics degree programs.
