Specific requirements


In addition to the general requirements, the applicant must also meet the specific requirements that apply to the different programmes, see below. The specific requirements may be assessed as not fulfilled if

the degree does not qualify for admission to equivalent master's programmes in the country where the degree is awarded.

Applicants are expected to have
a bachelor's degree in biomedical, electrical, physical, biological or computer engineering, electronics or physics, or equivalent
at least 30 ECTS credits in mathematics or applications of mathematics including calculus, linear algebra, vector calculus and complex functions
at least 10 ECTS credits in physics including mechanics
If the applicant has some other degree it must be conformant to the ABET (American Board of Engineering and Technology) specification for Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering.
