Selection Bachelor’s programs

Why is TU/e introducing selection?

TU/e believes in small-scale education with plenty of contact between teachers and students. There is a limit in terms of the number of student we can offer good education.

Given the rapid growth of recent years, the limit has now been reached. In academic year 2018-2019 we have a maximum number of student places for the programs Biomedical Engineering / Medical Sciences and Technology, Computer Science & Engineering, Industrial Design and Industrial Engineering.

If interest exceeds the maximum number of students, then we will apply a selection procedure whereby we determine who may and may not follow these studies. The selection is based on the engineers that society and industry need.

Please note!
Accepting a place does not mean that you are eligible for admission to all TU/e Bachelor’s programs. Check the admission requirements per program in advance to see whether you are eligible. A comparable grade for international students is defined as authenticated school results of the pre-exam highschool or IB year.

Selection criteria

There are two criteria. TU/e selection programs all use average high-school grade (or an equivalent) of the pre-exam year  as one criterion.  The second criterion is determined differently per Bachelor’s program but may not be based on other school grades. Check the program of your choice to find out the details of the second criterion.  By 1 October, the second criterion per program is finally completed.

Selection process 2019-2020

As in the academic year 2018-2019, we are also preparing a selection process for certain bachelor’s degree programs in 2019-2020. Everyone applying for one of these bachelor’s programs will take part in a selection process. If you wish to begin studying in September 2019, you must apply for a program with selection before 15 January 2019. You will soon read on this page which bachelor's programs have a selection process in 2019-2020.
