  • Electrical Engineering

  • Information Technology

A decision on whether any degree programs not listed above are equivalent or comparable can only be made in the course of the application process. Unfortunately, we are unable to make any statements about this beforehand. You may need to provide evidence of sufficient German language skills and a preliminary documentation (VPD) from uni-assist. The curriculum vitae has to be in German.

In addition, all applicants will need to pass an aptitude assessment. During the aptitude assessment you will need to demonstrate sufficient knowledge in the form of a minimum number of credits (at least 150 credits in total on the transcript) from the following areas:

  • Advanced Mathematics
  • Physical Principles
  • Knowledge of Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering or Computer Science

Your current grades are also taken into account.

You may take a look here without obligation to check in advance how good your chances are of getting a place in one of these degree programs.

Depending on your prior knowledge, you will either be directly accepted, directly rejected or have the opportunity to prove yourself in an aptitude interview.
