Entry requirements

The academic basis is a completed and passed three-year Bachelor’s programme in Engineering, based on the National Curriculum, within the fields of renewable energy, mechatronics, mechanical engineering or electrical engineering. Furthermore, the following requirements, that partly go beyond the requirements of the National Curriculum, have to be met:

  • At least 25 credits in relevant mathematics
  • At least 5 credits in statistics
  • At least 7,5 credits in physics

The requirement that there be a relevant basis in mathematics is satisfied through mathematics equivalent to obligatory mathematics and the elective course Mathematics 3 within UiA’s engineering programmes.

Applicants with an equivalent education within technology and science, and who meet the requirements above, may also be admitted to the programme.

For more details see admission requirements on the programme's webpage.
