Qualification Requirements

Previous Degree

Bachelor's degree (or equivalent) in the fields of industrial engineering, technical physics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, mechatronics, or equivalent. The examination board decides on the equivalence of the degrees.

Required ECTS credits: 210.

If applicants provide evidence of an admission substantiating university degree, for which less than 210 ECTS credits but at least 180 ECTS credits have been awarded or are to be regarded as equivalent, then proof of the ECTS credits not yet obtained is a prerequisite for passing the master examination. ECTS credits not yet obtained, which must be obtained by the start of the third semester, can be proven upon request to the Examination Committee by completing an additional internship or by participating in relevant university courses. The proof can be provided only once for each variant. A maximum of 30 ECTS credits can be proven. The following conditions apply for the proof:

  1. Internship: Successful completion of a relevant internship in the fields of industrial engineering, engineering physics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, or mechatronics lasting at least 20 weeks.
  2. University courses: University courses must stem from the subject-relevant undergraduate courses provided by the university. The applicant must consult the responsible student advisor in advance. The advisor works out an individual concept together with the applicant.
GPA Rate 2.50
GPA Comment

The GPA indicated is not mandatory, but if you do get it, the Examination Committee may waive participation in the eligibility exam.

A student’s eligibility for the degree program is determined on the basis of a 90-minute written or online examination. The Examination Committee may waive a candidate’s obligation to take the course-specific eligibility exam if the applicant demonstrates above-average knowledge as verified through their degree awards.

Above-average degree awards are deemed to be an overall grade
of “good” (<2.5) or better, or demonstrate above-average knowledge (a grade of 2.5 or better) in Mathematics, Physics, Informatics, Electronic Engineering, and Control Engineering.
