Required grades:

You can check whether the grades of your Bachelor's degree are sufficient for admission in the pre-check. If your grades are sufficient for an application, you will receive a precheck code after the pre-check, which you enter in the online application.
  • Admission to the Master's degree program in International Industrial Engineering is restricted! The grades of the Bachelor's degree are relevant for admission. The grades required for admission depend on the number of applicants.
