We can not give you final mandatory answers here as only the final committee is allowed to do so. Nevertheless we can look on your qualifications if you send them to the contact address. But please help us by listing all courses in your Email which qualify for Math / Statistics and Computer Science. Do not send us only a bunch of PDFs!

Do it like this:


  • Math 1 -> 5 ECTS
  • Statistics 2 -> 8 ECTS
  • course 3 -> 4 ECTS
  • course 4 -> 5 ECTS
  • TOTAL: 22


  • Programming 1 -> 4 ECTS
  • Software Engineering -> 5 ECTS
  • course 3 -> 6 ECTS
  • course 4 -> 5 ECTS
  • course 5 -> 5 ECTS
  • TOTAL: 25

Please note: at least 75% of all ECTS must be proven by University courses! The rest can be done via coursera etc.

Question 9: Is there a GPA limit?

We do have no fixed GPA limit. But we must take the GPA equivalent into account if we have too many applicants.

Question 10: I had English in School and one English course at the university. Is this a sufficient B2 English equivalent?

It is unfortunately not. Only an English School or an English Bachelor (instruction language English) could be taken into account. Or B2 on the school certificate (as stated in the OZI).

Question 11: I have problems with the Beuth application system!

Please have a look at the red error message below in the system. Mostly wrong dates are the reason (as e.g. 14.03.0199 and have the German date format in mind! DD.MM.YYYY). Otherwise try to clean cookies & browserdata and try all browsers!

Question 12: Please can you tell me about my application status? (I need it fast for my VISA process).
Unfortunately this is not our task. The Beuth Administration (Studienverwaltung) will decide who is in and who not and will inform you. Mostly in the first half of August.
