To be admitted to the Master's programme in Electrical Engineering, applicants have to pass an entrance exam, which takes place once a year. This exam consists of four parts. By passing all of them, the applicant proves that he/she has got a good basic understanding of mathematical-scientific, system-theoretical and technical subjects and can cope with the requirements of the Master's programme. Please find detailled information on the admission requirements in the regulations governing the aptitude test (= Eignungsfeststellungsordnung, in German only).
To prepare for this exam, applicants can take part in an optional preparation semester during the summer semester (April - July) before the Master's programme starts. The preparation semester is organized by TUDIAS and is divided into two parts: One part helps participants to prepare themselves for the different test subjects; the second part is a language course for these international applicants whose knowledge of Geman is not sufficient yet to be admitted to the master course. Participation in the preparation semester is strongly recommended, but it is no admission requirement.
Applicants can ask for accommodation in the International Guest House of TU Dresden for the duration of the examination procedure. Applicants that are admitted to the entrance examination procedure will receive an invitation letter enclosing the form to be sent to the International Guest House if they want to use this offer.
