Criteria for Selection
The selection grade is calculated partly on the basis of subject-specific competence and partly on the final grade of the undergraduate degree:
1. The subject-specific competence acquired in the undergraduate studies is determined by a point system.
On the basis of the study and examination regulations on which the completed course of study is based, the admissions committee determines how many ECTS credits the applicant has acquired in the modules listed below or equivalent modules. The module names in the table correspond to the modules of the Bachelor's programmes "Automotive Engineering" and "Automotive Systems" at the Hochschule Esslingen. The respective maximum number of points that can be credited is also shown in the table. The table in English will be showed as soon as possible. For further information please see the german page.
The achieved credits are added up. A maximum of 129 points can be achieved. The achieved score P is converted into a key figure K using a linear scale. The following formula is used:
K = -0.06 *P+7
If the score P is greater than or equal to 100, the index K is set at 1.0. If less than 50 points are obtained, the applicant cannot be admitted to the course.
2. Final graduation grade.
