Admission criteriaThursday, November 3, 2011

Besides the regulations posted at the TUDelft’s application webpage, the following guidelines will be used to consider applications. Please note that the admission criteria described here apply, except for the GRE test: EWEM applicants do not have to take the GRE test.

1) Candidates must have obtained a BSc diploma of substantial quality and level corresponding to at least 3 years studies at University, equivalent to 180 ECTS.

2) The programme builds upon a first degree such as a Bachelor’s degree or an equivalent qualification in a related field. The four tracks have different degree requirements.

  • For the Rotor Design track applicants must hold a Bachelor’s degree in either Mechanical, Aerospace Engineering, Physics or a degree with equivalent core content.
  • For the Wind Physics track applicants must hold a Bachelor’s degree in either Mechanical engineering, Aerospace engineering, Mathematics or Physics or a degree with equivalent core content.
  • For the Electrical Power Systems track applicants must hold a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical engineering, Physics or a degree with equivalent core content.
  • For the Offshore Engineering track applicants must hold a Bachelor’s degree in either Civil engineering, Structural engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Marine Engineering, Physics or a degree with equivalent core content.

3) Proof of English language proficiency (certificates older than two years are not accepted)*:

  • For the test accepted and the scores required please visit TUDelft’s admission webpage.

*An exception is made for students from DTU, TU Delft, NTNU Trondheim or the University of Oldenburg who have successfully completed a BSc or MSc in English.

4) The applicant’s qualifications must include a strong working knowledge of mathematics and experience in programming and applicants must document that they have fulfilled the following minimum requirements (if not explicit in the names mentioned on the transcripts, extra documentation is required!):

  • Mathematics: 25-30 ECTS
  • Physics: 10-15 ECTS
  • Engineering design methodology: 5-15 ECTS
  • Programming experience (Matlab, Python, or similar) using numerical methods for solving applied mathematical problems (you’ll have to document it by mentioning courses in transcript and in CV under ‘Skills’).

5) For the tracks Wind Physics, Rotor Design and Offshore Engineering, students must document the following minimum requirements (if not explicit in the names mentioned on the transcripts, extra documentation is required!):

  • Statics, mechanical vibrations, and strength of materials: 10-15 ECTS
  • Fluid mechanics, engineering thermodynamics, hydrodynamics and heat transfer: 10-15 ECTS
  • Materials science, and production technology: 10-15 ECTS

6) For the track Electric Power Systems, students must document a working knowledge at bachelor level of Electric Power Engineering especially in the three of the following subjects (if not explicit in the names mentioned on the transcripts, extra documentation is required!):

  • Power systems, Power Electronics and Electric Machines: 10 ECTS

7) A working knowledge at bachelor level of at least four of the following five subjects is prerequisite for the central courses of the MSc program (if not explicit in the names mentioned on the transcripts, extra documentation is required!):

  • Engineering design methodology
  • Statics, mechanical vibrations, and strength of materials
  • Fluid mechanics

8) Applicants that are enrolled in an integrated five year degree with no bachelor entry level must have passed 180 ECTS and will be evaluated on an individual basis.

9) BEng graduates are assessed on an individual basis.

10) For all tracks, a BSc Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of at least 75% of the scale maximum,  unless specific requirements are defined for the country in which you obtained your Bachelor’s degree:

Preliminary transcripts are acceptable when applying, but the final degree certificate is required before the start of the programme (note for students in need of a Danish visa: Danish regulations require proof of completion of a full degree by July 1st of the year the programme starts). Applicants with an MSc and/or professional experience will be assessed on an individual basis.

Note: students with a TUD Bachelor’s degree must submit their TUD transcript including CGPA statement (request transcript at the Service desk of the faculty).

11) In the essay (see application webpage) it must also be explained why the applicant is interested in EWEM and the partner universities.

12) When evaluating the application, the lack of one or more of these requirements will be weighed against the other qualifications of the applicant, and possible admission might be considered.
