Admission requirements & deadlines
If there are more applications than university places, the places are allocated via NC-procedures. The final grade is then calculated as follows:
- 60% grade of bachelor degree (or provisional grade from provisional certificate)
- 40% result of the student aptitude test
The following admission requirements apply to the master’s program:
To apply to the program you need a bachelor’s degree in engineering or a thematically related degree or an equivalent international degree with a standard study period of six semesters or at least 180 ECTS points.
Of those, at least 120 ECTS points must have been acquired in modules about engineering, whereas the amount of ECTS points in economic modules cannot be higher than 30 ECTS points. For orientation please take a look at the list of admission-approved study programs that meet these criteria. A bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering for example does not fulfill the admission requirements because more than 30 ECTS points are acquired in economic modules.
You can look up the number of points necessary for a B2 level in various certificates (e.g. TOEFL or IELTS) on the website of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEF). Acceptable language certificates are such listed by the CEF. Proof of English language skills may be omitted if you
- have already acquired 30 ECTS points in modules conducted in English during your previous studies (at home or abroad).
- have graduated a general education school with at least five years of English lessons. This assumes that your final (or average) grades of the last two years of English in a course have to be equivalent to a German grade 4 (sufficient) or at least 5 grade points.
In order to determine if you are a suitable candidate you need to take an online aptitude test. The test provides insight into your academic disposition and determines your professional qualification based on subject-specific questions from the areas quantitative knowledge, application of project management methods and tasks of an industrial engineer. The online test is conducted in German only and takes 60 minutes.
- Step 1: Register for aptitude test until August 19th 2020 at the latest.
- Step 2: Complete the aptitude test until August 20th 2020 at the latest.
You can register up to one day before taking the test.
Besides the online aptitude test you need to submit your application for the university program until August 20th
Important notice for students with a non-German bachelor’s degree
If you have graduated from a non-German university, you need to submit your application timely via uni-assist in Berlin. As uni-assist sometimes takes up to eight weeks to check all documents, we strongly recommend uploading the documents as soon as possible. Further information and contact persons are available on the website of the International Office..
