Decentralized selection

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.

Selection procudure

Do you want to follow one of the four studies and do you want to take part of the selection procedure? Then keep an eye on the following procedure and dates!

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.

Selection criteria

There are two criteria. TU/e selection programs all use the average high-school grade (or an equivalent) 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.
