Specific requirements

Direct admission

The master’s degree is designed for students who have completed a degree in engineering and acquired at least basic multidisciplinary knowledge of fields such as circuit theory, electromagnetism, electrotechnics and electrical machines. The following are therefore the most suitable entrance qualifications and provide direct admission:
•    Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Technology Engineering
•    Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Technologies and Economic Analysis
•    Bachelor’s degree in Energy Engineering
•    Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering
•    Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Electronics and Automatic Control Engineering
•    Bachelor’s degree in Engineering Physics

Bridging courses

As a general rule, students with qualifications other than those that provide direct admission will not be admitted to the master’s degree.

However, applications from students who hold degrees other than those specified will be reviewed by the academic committee of the master’s degree to determine the suitability of their qualifications. For those admitted, the academic committee will specify what bridging courses, if any, must be taken (max. 15 ECTS credits).
