Academic Requirements

Students that qualify for the Sensor System Engineering master's programme can either be admitted directly or will be required to do a special pre-master or bridging programme before they can start the master. The Admissions Committee determines the contents of this bridging programme, depending on the potential of the student.

Your admittance to the programme depends on your educational background:

  • Graduates of the Advanced Sensor Applications and the Sensor Technology bachelor's programmes (Institute of Engineering, Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen) will receive direct entry to the master's programme after application.

  • Graduates who successfully completed the minor programme Sensor System Engineering (Institute of Engineering, Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen) as part of their bachelor's degree will also receive direct entry to the master's programme after application.

  • Graduates of other Engineering, IT and Science bachelor's programmes, most likely have to enrol in a special pre-master or bridging programme before admittance to the main one year programme. Our Admissions Committee requires a portfolio containing extensive information about your previous education. This portfolio will be considered carefully by the Admissions Committee to determine whether you can be accepted directly into the master's programme or whether a pre-master course is necessary. You may also be rejected if your past education does not meet the necessary criteria. Once you are admitted, the Admissions Committee will send you a formal letter of acceptance, including official information about visa procedures, housing, insurance and so on.

StudyPortals Tip: Students should consider taking one of the Pre-Master's below. these courses will be necessary if:

  • You are considered ineligible for admission
  • You need to improve your academic, study, research or language skills
