Can I apply to one of the master courses, when my bachelor degree includes less that 210 ECTS?
You can. But you have to prove further 30 ECTS for compensation until the end of the application period.
Further 30 ECTS can either be proven with an internship or working experience which is equivalent both in terms of time and content to a practical semester of a bachelor degree at the THI which meets the requirements of the respective master course. (regarding the content: for Automotive Production Engineering it has to be in the field of mechanical engineering, for International Automotive Engineering it has to be in the field of electrical engineering; regarding time: practical semesters at the THI last at least 20 weeks in full-time work)
Or additional subjects (which were not part of the bachelor course) passed at a university, the subjects have to meet the requirements of the master course in terms of content as mentioned above.
It is absolutely essential, that the practical experience or the additional subjects have not been part of the Bachelor degree (for example in ways of transfer of credits). This has to be obvious for us with the documents you submit. Working experience gained after finishing the bachelor degree can for example be taken into consideration.
Is there an aptitude test for the master course I’m interested in?
We offer six master courses where there is an aptitude test.
Three of them Automatisiertes Fahren und Fahrzeugsicherheit (page does not exist yet), Applied Research in Engineering Sciences and Marketing, Sales and Media are completely taught in German (which means German level B2 is mandaroty for enrollment) have aptitude tests. For detailed information on the aptitude tests please switch the language to German.
The rest is Automotive Prodution Engineering , International Automotive Engineering , Renewable Energy Systems and Retail and Consumer Management which are completely taught in English. Information on the required English level can be found at application from abroad (see: which English skills do I have to prove?).
The aptitude test for these courses is not a test, where you have to appear in person.

International Automotive Engineering: You experience in the field of automotive is being assessed. Applicants can upload scientific (project-) reports, proof of working experience / internships, proof of the topic of their final thesis. Also general knowledge in the automotive area is being assessed (but through transcript, there won’t be an additional upload slot).
