Relevant bachelor's degrees at the University of Innsbruck:

Proof of general university entrance qualification:

The general university entrance qualification for admission to a master's programme must be proven by the completion of a subject-related bachelor's programme, another subject-related programme of at least the same higher education level at a recognised domestic or foreign post-secondary educational institution, or a program defined in the curriculum of the master's programme. To compensate for significant differences in subject matter, supplementary examinations (maximum 30 ECTS credits) may be prescribed, which must be taken by the end of the second semester of the master's programme.

The rectorate may determine which of these supplementary examinations are prerequisites for taking examinations provided for in the curriculum of the master's programme.

In the course of the proof of the general university entrance qualification, the completion of the following core areas within the framework of the completed bachelor's degree programme shall be examined in any case:

  • 8 ECTS-Credits Core Area: Fundamentals in Science and Engineering
  • 20 ECTS-Credits Core Area: Mathematics
  • 7.5 ECTS-Credits Core Area: Computer Science
  • 20 ECTS-Credits Core Area: Fundamentals in Electrical Engineering
  • 15 ECTS-Credits Core Area: Circuit Technology and Components
  • 15 ECTS-Credits Core Area: System Theory, Measurement and Control Technology
  • 7.5 ECTS-Credits Core Area: Power Electronics, Electrical Power and Drive Engineering







Recommended Course Sequence

The exemplary course sequence given below is recommended for full-time students beginning their study programme in the winter semester. The table shows one possible course sequence for the bachelor's programme and is not compulsory. Delays resulting from repeated examinations are not taken into account.
