Which criteria are used to award the university places?
There are usually more applications than places available. This means that not all applications for degree programmes will be successful. The places available will be awarded in accordance with the result of the university’s own selection procedure.
We are unable to give details of any admission restrictions (numerus clausus, NC) in advance. The NC states the selection threshold and the waiting time in semesters (periods of 6 months) for the last student in the ranking who is admitted to the degree programme. This means the NC varies depending on the number of applicants, their selection thresholds/waiting times and the number of places available. Since this is different for each application phase, we are unfortunately unable to provide any information about the admission restrictions (NC).
Why do I apply to hochschulstart.de and to the university?

I decided to study Automotive Systems because mobility is currently facing a major change. Electromobility, autonomous and connected driving are the big topics that will occupy us in the future. And here, at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences, we are optimally prepared for this. The special thing about our degree programme is that you can find your personal orientation in the 4th and 6th semesters in mandatory elective modules.
