The examination committee decides on the equivalence of degrees and exceptions and may also state additional requirements to be met by the student.

(2) If the first degree does not involve a final scientific thesis, the candidate has to submit another piece of scientific report authored by him/her.

(3) To be eligible for admission to this programme, a candidate must provide proof of English language proficiency at the B2 level as put forth by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (GER) in the form of 

  • proof of mastery as a native speaker (acquisition of a certificate of higher education entrance qualification or first-level professional qualification (i.e. undergraduate degree) from an English-speaking country) or

Documentation of all activities is to be provided. The letter of motivation must also detail the personal future (research) perspectives about the main areas of study.

(5) If the selection committee is not able to reach a unique consensus based on the available documents, an interview may be conducted to reveal the candidate's competences.

(6) The selection of the applicants is conducted by a selection committee, which comprises two professors, one of each is either from Civil Engineering or Computer Science, of the degree programme »Digital Engineering«. The selection committee establishes which applicants meet the necessery requirements (sections 1-5) and determines which modules from the thematic area »Fundamentals« are to be completed individually in order to achieve the adaptation of qualifications.
