How to get in – in a few simple steps

Do you fulfil the following requirements?

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.

Let’s get started!

Please hand in a formal application including your original certificate or (if you have not finished your studies yet) a provisional certificate that contains a provisional grade and the ECTS points obtained for the degree. You can hand in you final certificate at a later point in time given by the Student Service Center.

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.

    Last but not least, you need to formally apply to the university program.
