Requirements


Qualification Requirements


Previous Degree
  • Bachelor's degree in engineering or science with a total of 180 ECTS and three years of duration at least (Asia and MENA regions: usually four years are needed).
  • 120 ECTS of your Bachelor's must be engineering and natural science-related subjects (such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer science, electronics, etc.). This precondition is usually fulfilled by electrical and mechanical engineers, but can also be fulfilled by graduates of similar programmes such as environmental engineering, process (chemical) engineering, materials science and energy engineering.
  • The admission committee will decide about the suitability of your previous degree (i.e., whether or not it has prepared you well) for the SSE Master's programme.
GPA Rate 2.50
