I want to enter Germany for my master's and want to do Job there. I don't want to do a Ph.D. I am having a hard time choosing between FH and TU. My main goal is to do Job after my master's so which type of Institution I should choose. I have heard FH helps to give practical exposure according to Industry (mine is IT) and TU gives deep and thorough Knowledge(Bookish knowledge) about the same. Please help me out I will be applying for the Winter semester this year.

    You are basically right, though also universities (especially technical universities) usually have some partners and projects in industry. The general perception among Germans is that a university degree is higher than a FH degree, but in theory they are equivalent. Your choice is, however, up to you alone - do what fits better with your learning style (unless you want to stay in academia, then you should probably go to university - though even this is not a must). Keep an eye at different universities/FH's, as they might differ as well in their teaching style and programs.
