Admission Criteria:
(This paragraph is a translation from Swedish of the approved method, “Antagningsordning”[Admission regulations], Dnr; BTH-1.2.1-0223-2017.)


This method has the purpose of assessing the applicants’ competency for studies at, among others, the Master Programmes in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Software Engineering.


Previous university studies and English.


The first step of the ranking process is an assessment of the relevance of the area and specialisation of the applicants’ previous university studies to the applied programme. This assessment is made in three categories: minimal relevance = merit points 0, average relevance = merit points 0.5, high relevance = merit points 1.
Finally, the applicants’ TEOFL or IELTS level in English is normalised to a value between 0 and 1, where 0 is the minimum level to pass the prerequisites of the applied programme and 1 is the maximum level of the test. Applicants’ who are not required to prove their English skills with TOEFL or IELTS tests will get the merit point 1.
These two merit point values are added to a total merit value between 0 and 2


A maximum of 2 merit points will be given, according to the above given details.


Applications that are accepted for review based on the basic requirements for the programme will be ranked according to the details above. If not all applicants with the same lowest merit point can be admitted, a preference is given to the gender that is least represented at the programme, and if further selection is needed lots will be drawn.

Prior learning arrangements:

No preparatory studies before the programme start is offered as the basic requirement is a bachelor degree.

Qualification Awarded

On completion of the programme, students will be awarded the second cycle degree
Master of Science (120 credits).
