Bachelor Computer Science and Engineering

Selection procedure

Please note that the deadline concerning application for the selection day to start in 2023 has unfortunately passed.

Why selection?

TU/e is known for its small-scale, personal approach. To maintain this approach and the high quality of our programs, we need to ensure that the right students enroll in our most popular bachelor’s degree programs. For this reason, we appeal to you as a prospective student to give your choice of program a lot of thought. In addition, if there are more applications than we can accommodate, we will select those students who best match our selection profile.

Selection for 2023-2024 enrollment

The selection procedure for the bachelor program Computer Science and Engineering has now been completed. You can no longer apply for this program to start in 2023/2024.

In the near future, the TU/e will reconsider which study programs will retain their selection. As soon as there is more clarity, we will inform you via the website and also by e-mail if you have an account in MyStart@TU/e. We expect to be able to provide more information 1 October 2023 at the latest.

Selection procedure

The selection procedure for Computer Science and Engineering has the following criteria:  

  • Timely completion of the study program-related activities
  • Participation in three cognitive skills tests;
    • Mathematical thinking (25%)
    • Logical thinking (25%)
    • Algorithmic thinking (40%)
  • The average grades on the submitted grades list (10%)

On the basis of the aforementioned criteria, a ranking list of candidates is formed, ranging from 1 to the number of participating candidates. In case of an equal ranking based on the selection criteria, the following order of those candidates will be selected randomly.  

Make sure that you meet these criteria, for instance by sending in the required documents in time. If you do not meet these criteria, you are excluded from enrolment.

Daan tells you here how he experienced it


In June 2023 a welcome event will be organized for candidates who completed the selection procedure. 

During this day you will get to know other candidates, the study association and the study program.

This event is not a compulsory part of the selection procedure, so attendance is not mandatory. You will receive an email with more information about this event.
