A Bachelor degree in Computer Science obtained at the TU/e or other Dutch university provides direct admission to the CSE program.
International Bachelor degree in CS
Students with an international Bachelor degree in Computer Science have to apply for admission via the admission committee.
Please, visit the TU/e Admission and Enrollment page for more information about admission and other requirements.
Other TU/e Bachelor degree
TU/e students with non-CS bachelor willing to follow our master Computer Science and Engineering need the following preparatory courses (9):
Logic and Set Theory
Data modeling and databases OR JBI050 Data management for data analytics*
Linear algebra OR 2DBI00 Linear algebra and applications
Data structures (ideally should be followed by 2ILC0 Algorithms)
Automata, language theory and complexity *
Data mining and machine learning OR JBI030 Data Mining
* The courses 2ID50, 2IT90 should be preceded by 2IT60
There are several possibilities:
1. The courses can be taken as electives during the student's current non-CS TU/e bachelor.
2. When bachelor is obtained and maximum 6 out of these courses left, the student could follow them as a pre-master program.
3. When bachelor is obtained and maximum 3 out of these courses left, the student could follow them as homologation courses as part of the master program.
The second and third option should be discussed in advance with an academic advisor for masters in Computer Science and approved by the CS admission committee.
University of Applied Science Bachelor degree (HBO)
Students with a matching Bachelor of Science from a Dutch University of Applied Science have to follow a standard pre-master program Computer Science and Engineering first.
Upon completion of this pre-master they are admitted to the master CSE.
Deviating (non-CS) non-TU/e bachelor
Students with deviating university bachelor can only be admitted to master CSE if the deficiency is not more than 15 EC (three courses of 5 EC).
We suggest these students checking our bachelor program Computer Science and Engineering
to make an estimate for themselves that the deficiency is not more than 15 EC.
And if they feel that the deficiency is not more than 15 EC submit a master program application for the decision of our admission committee.
