Germany - University transfer - Is it advisable?

I am currently doing my 2nd semester in TUHH (Material Science) and I am from a mechanical engg background. I have realised that the course is not perfect for me and I also have got admission from TU Dortmund for Manufacturing Tech. I can join only for the first semester and they said the credits cant be transferred as there are not any courses that overlap. I am in a great dilemma over whether to switch or not as one full year is wasted that way. I kindly request you to give your opinions.

Why did you choose Material science in the first place?

Is it because the course / the university and facilities are not up to the mark or is it purely because of your interest?

I am asking because I have also got an admit for IPM at TUHH, so your inputs will also help me.

If you continue there, you may be wasting one more year. I feel, it is better you pursue a course which excites you from within, instead of sweating out just for a degree.

Alternatively, try to select courses, thesis topics with relation to your interests (while still being in your current stream). This way, you will have the best of both worlds.

You can change your University.
But it completely depends on your credit transfers.
If suppose either TUHH or TU Dortmund rejects the idea of transferring credits which you have already completed in TUHH, I am afraid there is no other go.

Then the only option would be to reject the whole TUHH course and enroll in TU Dortmund as a fresh Masters student.

Try and consult with the examination authorities on the possible transfer of credits. If it happens , well and good.
If not I am afraid you gotta start from scratch.

I keep telling the aspirants here in Edulix, never run behind Universities reputation.
Study the course which you like and not because you got an admit from a top university.
There is no point of studying things which you are not comfortable with, however good the university is.

I hope this helps..!!!
