Multitude of applications each year  Due to the multitude of applications we receive each year, and as the number of students to be admitted is restricted, applicants should have a very good school-leaving certificate or university transcript. Our admissions committee focuses on your grades in Maths and Physics. You may apply for first semester only, no access to higher semesters can be given.

»You don´t have to be scared of Maths if you want to study Electrical Engineering, but there needs to be a good base in this subject to be able to work in later semesters.«
