University Of Freiburg - Faculty Of Engineering:
Ideally located in the heart of Europe, The University of Freiburg is in southwest Germany, close to the borders of France and Switzerland. The Faculty of Engineering offers a range of bachelor's and master's degree courses in the fields of engineering and computer science to German and international students from around the world. All of our undergraduate programs are taught in German. The language of instruction for master's programs varies. Some are taught completely in English, others in German, others are bilingual programs.
• Founded in 1995, the Faculty of Engineering comprises the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Microsystems Engineering. Offering undergraduate and graduate programs to approximately 1,200 students, it has earned an outstanding reputation.
• The faculty’s researchers develop miniature technical solutions for nearly all domains of industry and life through the combination of various fields, such as computer science, electronics, optics, mechanics, and chemistry.
Recognition of Excellence:
• In 2007, the University of Freiburg received the highest possible distinction in the nationwide Excellence Initiative of the federal and state governments.
• The university is one of only nine German universities to be successful in all three areas of this competition (Graduate School, Cluster of Excellence, Institutional Strategy “Windows for Research”) and to receive the highest level of funding.
• In 2009 the University of Freiburg was distinguished in the nationwide “Excellent Teaching” competition, organized by the Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs and the Stifterverband for German Science and Research.

• “Studying at the University of Freiburg has been more challenging than in Mexico. However, it gave me the opportunity to be closer to research and to analyze and understand all the theories that make the tools work, computer scientists use every day. And, above all, I got the opportunity to meet those who developed these tools!
The University of Freiburg is famous for winning several international robotic competitions, and yes, the same persons who won these competitions are the ones that teach the undergraduate and postgraduate students in Freiburg.“
