Bachelor Computer Science and Technology


Why selection?

TU/e is known for our 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 2019-2020 enrollment

A selection procedure is in place for the Computer Science and Technology bachelor’s degree program. The maximum number of students that can enroll in this program in the academic year 2019-2020 is 275.

This is a high limit! So do not get discouraged. Give the selection procedure your best shot.
The program selects on success probability in the program, in which motivation and accuracy play an important role. 

Selection procedure

The selection procedure for Computer Science and Engineering has yet to be determined precisely but will include, among other things, the completion of an online reflection form and the following tests:

  • Mathematical Thinking (calculus)
  • Logic Thinking
  • Algorithmic Thinking

In addition, the certified 5VWO grades, or equivalent for students with a previous education outside the Netherlands (GPA year before graduation) must be submitted before 15 January.

Make sure that you meet these criteria, for instance by sending in the required documents in time. Otherwise, you may run the risk of being excluded from enrollment, which would be a pity.

Selection will take place on the 16th of March, so keep this in mind. Some students might be invited for a personal online conversation based on their results.


Selection day 16 March 2019

If you want to start the Computer Science and Technology program in September 2019, you are required to take part in the selection day. No exceptions are possible.

You can prepare for the Calculus basic course by practicing via Experience Mathness. This is also useful for the Mathematical Thinking test.

After the selection

When you receive a grade number of 275 or lower, you will immediately be offered a place for the bachelor Computer Science and Engineering (via Studielink). You must confirm this place within two weeks by completing your registration in Studielink. Otherwise, your place will go to the candidate with the next rank number. This means that in the following weeks candidates with higher rank numbers can still be offered a place, so make sure you keep a close eye on Studielink and your e-mail.

Students with a previous education outside the Netherlands should submit a complete application via Studielink and Osiris portal before 15 January 2019, and send the required hard copy documents via post to be received by TU/e no later than 15 January 2019.

Preferably apply this year, so we can inform you in time if your registration is not correct or complete.
