The admission requirements for one of our Master's degree programs depend on your previous education. Some levels of previous education provide direct admission to a Master's program, but it is also possible that you will need to apply for admission. In some cases you need to follow a pre-Master's program first. Find out here if you are eligible and what steps you need to take to enroll. 

Direct progression

Admissions to the DSiE MSc requires basic working knowledge and skills in the following subjects, as acquired in approved Bachelors level coursework:

  • logic and set theory (2IT60),
  • linear algebra (2WF20 or 2DBI00),
  • data modeling and databases (2ID50),
  • calculus-based statistics and probability (2DI90),
  • data structures and algorithms (2IL50 and 2ILC0). 
    The relevant course codes at TU/e are given in parentheses.

Note that these courses themselves have mandatory prerequisites.  Lack of knowledge in up to three of the indicated subjects can be compensated for during the Masters program.
