Qualification Requirements

Previous Degree

Bachelor's degree (or equivalent) in Automotive and Drive Engineering or Mechanical Engineering, with respective specializatiοns.

GPA (German System) 2.20
GPA Comment

This grade is not GPA, but a ratio between professional aptitude and the GRE test.

In order to assess the relevance of the first professional qualifying degree, a maximum of seven of the subjects named in the respective list can be assigned in terms of content. The number of modules completed by the applicants in their first professional qualification from the corresponding list, after division by the maximum possible subjects, results in a degree of coverage in percent. The degree of coverage will be transferred, according to Table 2 (page 6), into a grade reflecting professional aptitude.

The grade resulting from the professional aptitude and the final grade or the equivalent grade resulting from the GRE, together build a rating score. Therefore, the grade of the first professionally qualifying degree is weighted at 2/3, and the professional aptitude (cumulative study frequency) at 1/3. The evaluation grade must be at least 2.2 for admission to "International Automotive Engineering". The aptitude test will be documentеd.

Additional Qualification

Applicants who have not acquired their academic qualification at a higher education institution in the Bologna reform area of education must provide evidence of a successfully completed Graduate Record Examination Test (GRE) - General Test (computer-based). The minimum requirement is a score in the 81st percentile or better on the quantitative score. This must be submitted electronically (application portal) to the university no later than the application deadline. Applications without GRE will not be considerеd.
