About the Master Electrical Engineering


According to the admission regulations for the Master's program "Electrical Engineering" our admissions committee will conduct a procedure to decide about qualification (Eignungsfeststellungsverfahren) of all candidates.

The assessment of subject-specific eligibility according to § 1 (2) of the Admissions Regulations of the University of Stuttgart for the master's degree program Electrical Engineering is carried out as described in the procedural guidelines. The admission process is based on the

A "not ok" status for the transcript of records usually doesn't mean, that the transcript of records is unreadable, incomplete or otherwise formally incorrect. Rather, it's that the competences you have demonstrated through your transcript of records leaded to a too low number of admission points. Those admission points were calculated during the process of admission, see the answer to question no. 2 of this faq-list.

In compliance with the Admissions Regulations of the University of Stuttgart for the master's degree program “Electrical Engineering”, our admissions committee carries out an eligibility assessment (admission procedure), which you can find in the answer to question 2 of this FAQ list.

Due to the insufficient number of admission points found in the eligibility assessment, the admissions committee has decided not to propose you for admission.

Please understand that application documents submitted after the application deadline cannot be taken into consideration so there is no sense in sending further application documents to us via e-mail.

We regret not being able to give you more favorable information.
