Admission requirements

 European Wind Energy Master

We are happy to see that you are interested in joining the European Wind Energy Master!

Before you can start with your Master programme, you have to fulfil application requirements and follow an admission procedure. TU Delft is the coordinating university of EWEM, therefore you have to follow the requirements and procedure of TU Delft to apply for EWEM.

The admission requirements are split in three categories:

A. TU Delft’s requirement

The general requirements for Master programmes  (Admission requirements and required documents) can be found here.

These are applicable for all EWEM applicants (with both an international and Dutch diploma), with some exceptions.

Exceptions for EWEM applicants are:

  • GRE test: EWEM students do not have to take the GRE test.
  • English Language Proficiency: If you graduated from a BSc or MSc programme  at TU Delft, NTNU, DTU or University of Oldenburg, you do not need to submit the English Language Proficiency. Additional exceptions are defined on TU Delft’s website.
  • Motivation Letter (essay): Please explain your interest in EWEM and the partner universities.
  • BSc Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA): Preliminary transcripts are acceptable when applying, but the final degree certificate is required before the start of the programme.
    • Note for applicants in need of a Danish visa: Danish regulations require proof of completion of a full degree by July 1st of the year the programme starts). Applicants with an MSc and/or professional experience will be assessed on an individual basis.
    • Note for applicants with an TU Delft Bachelor degree: Applicants with a TUD Bachelor’s degree must submit their TUD transcript including CGPA statement (request transcript at the Service desk of the faculty).
B. Requirements for all EWEM applicants

In addition to TU Delft’s requirements, the following requirements are defined for all EWEM applicants:

  • Candidates must have obtained a BSc diploma of substantial quality and level corresponding to at least 3 years studies at University, equivalent to 180 ECTS. Please check the specific requirements under C. Track specific requirements to get more information about the necessary degree.
  • The applicant’s qualifications must include a strong working knowledge of mathematics and experience in programming and applicants must document that they have fulfilled the following minimum requirements (if not explicit in the names mentioned on the transcripts, extra documentation is required!):
    • Mathematics: 25-30 ECTS
    • Physics: 10-15 ECTS
    • Engineering design methodology: 5-15 ECTS
    • Programming experience (Matlab, Python, or similar) using numerical methods for solving applied mathematical problems (you’ll have to document it by mentioning courses in transcript and in CV under ‘Skills’).
  • A working knowledge at bachelor level of at least four of the following five subjects is prerequisite for the central courses of the MSc program (if not explicit in the names mentioned on the transcripts, extra documentation is required!):
    • Engineering design methodology
    • Statics, mechanical vibrations, and strength of materials
    • Fluid mechanics

Please note the following:

  • Applicants that are enrolled in an integrated five year degree with no bachelor entry level must have passed 180 ECTS and will be evaluated on an individual basis.
  • BEng graduates are assessed on an individual basis.
  • MSc graduates and/or professional experience applicants will be assessed on an individual basis
  • Preliminary transcripts are accepted when applying, but the final degree certificate must be received before the start of the program.
