Programme-specific admission requirements
Required prior knowledge
Applicants to the programme must first meet the general eligibility criteria and language requirements common to all Master’s programmes in Science and Technology.
The following background knowledge is required. This knowledge is typically obtained by studying a Bachelor degree at a research university with Electrical Engineering, Automation, Control Engineering or Materials Science as a major subject.
The required background subjects are:
- mathematics (linear algebra, calculus, probability theory and statistics)
- programming skills
- physics and/or chemistry
- project and team work
- technical writing
For applicants whose previous degree is in a subject other than Electrical Engineering, Automation, Control Engineering or Materials Science, it is critical to demonstrate the knowledge in the above areas and the specific major requirements (as described below) in the application.
Students chosen to the programme may be required to complement their earlier degree studies with complementary studies. The admission letter will provide information on any such requirements. The complementary studies cannot be included in the Master's degree but will be required for graduation.
In addition to the general background requirements, each major has specific requirements. The major is selected at the beginning of the studies, and at that point the background requirements listed below are considered. The applicants are asked to indicate in the motivation letter which major they wish to follow.
