DAAD German Study & Research Expo India 2017

in New Delhi and Hyderabad

The exhibition stand of the Bavarian Universities and Universities of Applied Sciences attracted wide interest during the DAAD GATE German Study & Research Expo 2017 in India. This year's expo took place in New Delhi, the capital of India and in Hyderabad, the capital of the newly founded state of Telangana.

The five days lasting German expo, during which three out of five days were used for PhD matchmaking and the institutional matchmaking attracted approx. 3144 visitors.

In detail, 1500 visitors were attending the expo during the first day in New Delhi and 450 visitors in the following day (PhD matchmaking). In Hyderabad, 824 visitors attended the expo during the first day and 344 on the second day (PhD mtachmaking). Additionally, 26 higher education institutions registered for the networking day.

Participating at both locations, the Bavarian delegation held presentations on different study fields: about studies and research in material sciences, and more general presentations on business and engineering studies in Bavaria. The four presentations were well-attended and raised much interest in terms of subject-related inquiries.

The visibility of this year's expo went far beyond the borders of the respective states. Notably, students from different IITs and central universities from neighbouring states attended the expo and were eager to attain more information on study and PhD opportunities in Germany.

Concerning the study interest, English taught master programs in egineering, business and management (especially MBA), natural sciences and life sciences (especially biotechnology) were most sought after. Furthermore, there was a considerable interest in the possibilities to do a doctorate in natural sciences and life sciences in Bavaria.

Due to the variety of English taught programs offered by the Bavarian higher education institutions, almost every visitor could be provided with appropriate information by the "Bayern Stand". In case of further or more detailed queries the interested parties were successfully referred to the BayIND Science Office - which is located in Bangalore.

The German Study & Research Expo 2017 was an excellent opportunity for German universities to showcase their excellence and opportunities to Indian students. Special thanks is owed to the DAAD, which ensured smooth procedures through meticulous organization of the whole DAAD Expo 2017.
