To apply for a place in Computational Engineering, the following requirements must be met:
Students who apply for the Master of Science programme must have a Bachelor (or comparable) degree in either
Students who have a Bachelor degree in Computer Science will not be accepted.
There is no definitive answer to this question as the required grade mainly depends on where you come from. You are thus requested to send us your application documents when you have completed your first degree programme, when you are about to complete it and even when you have barely failed it i.e. when you are a few credits shy of your degree. If you do not have the required grades, but still you are convinced that, because of your additional skills, you are qualified for the Master of Science course, you are welcome to send us your application. In the selection procedure we will favourably consider your additional qualifications.
Compared to the German rating system (according to which 1.0 is the best and 4.0 is the lowest grade), you should have an average of at least 2.5. All foreign grades will be evaluated according to this system. In order to give you an idea what your chances are to be admitted to the programme the following rules of thumb can be applied:
We expect the applicants to have completed at least three semesters of mathematics and two semesters of basic mechanics with good to very good results during their qualifying Bachelor's degree (or equivalent).
Again, there is no definitive answer to this question. Usually, degrees/universities will be recognised if
The language of instruction is English. You thus have to furnish proof that you have sound English language skills.
To be accepted to the programme at least one of the following requirements must be fulfilled:
All courses are taught in English. Hence, German language skills are not required to be admitted to the programme. However, some pre-knowledge of the German language will be very helpful in everyday life and it will considerably help you to socialise with other RUB students. We thus strongly recommend you to take German classes ideally before you come to Germany. Besides, Ruhr-Universität Bochum offers free German language courses for all levels each semester.
