Admission and requirements
The application process is highly competitive. Admission decisions are made by the Admission Committee based on the candidates' demonstratrated academic qualifications and merits. A limited number of the most highly qualified students may be accepted to the programme, but there is no fixed quota for the annual intake of international students at Tampere University of Technology.
The applicant will be informed by email when the application documents have reached TUT. After the deadline, the Admission Committee will evaluate the applications, verify the specific requirements and nominate applicants for admission. The names of the accepted students will be posted on this website (if they have authorized the publication of their names) and the accepted students will also be contacted personally. The official letters of acceptance will be posted in early May.
TUT uses a three-stage admission process in which students are selected based on their application documents. The process is fair and equal to all applicants. No entrance examinations are arranged for the programme.
It is not possible to be placed on a waiting list, because accepted students who give up their study place will not be replaced by other candidates.
The general academic requirements are listed in the 'Applying' section. The applicant must have a BEng/BSc degree that is equivalent to a bachelor's degree according to the Finnish regulations and includes at least three years/180 credits of full time study. The degree must be conferred by an internationally recognized university that is listed in the latest edition of the International Handbook of Universities.The field of the BSc degree should be computing, information technology, electrical engineering, computer science or another discipline related to the programme, entailing proficiency in mathematics, physics and computer science. It is an advantage if the overall grade (CGPA) of the degree is at least 70% of the highest possible score. The best educational profile for each focus area is described in the section 'Focus areas'.
The official language of the Programme is English, and therefore a good command in the English language is an absolute prerequisite. Candidates must demonstrate their language proficiency by completing one of the following language tests:
• TOEFL (min. score 79 in the web-based iBT or 550 in the paper-based test PBT). Please note that we do not accept the institutional TOEFL test ITP for this application.
• IELTS (score 6.0 or higher)
• Cambridge Language Certificate (Proficiency CPE or Advanced CAE) (grade "C" or higher)
• PTE Academic (min. score 53)
Please note that any other language certificates or free-form statements cannot be accepted as proof of the candidate's language skills. More information about the language tests is available in the 'Applying' section.
