Prior Bachelors

Direct access

A Bachelor degree in Computer Science obtained at the TU/e or other Dutch university provides direct admission to the IST program.

International Bachelor degree in CS

Students with an international Bachelor degree in Computer Science have to apply for admission via the admission committee. 

Please, visit the TU/e Admission and Enrollment page for more information about admission and other requirements.

Other TU/e Bachelor degree

TU/e students with non-CS bachelor willing to follow our master Information Security Technology need the following preparatory courses (7):

2IT60 Logic and Set Theory

2IP90 Programming

2ID50 Data modeling and databases

2IT80 Introduction to discrete structures/2IT50 Discrete structures

2IL50 Data structures

2IX20 Software Specification

2IC60 Computer networks and security

There are several possibilities:

1. The courses can be taken as electives during the student's current non-CS TU/e bachelor.

2. When bachelor is obtained and maximum 6 out of these courses left, the student could follow them as a pre-master program.

3. When bachelor is obtained and maximum 3 out of these courses left, the student could follow them as homologation courses as part of the master program.

The second and third option should be discussed in advance with an academic advisor for masters in Computer Science and approved by the CS admission committee.

University of Applied Science Bachelor degree (HBO)

Students with a matching Bachelor of Science from a Dutch University of Applied Science have to follow a standard pre-master program Information Security Technology first.

Upon completion of this pre-master they are admitted to the master IST.

Deviating (non-CS) non-TU/e bachelor

Students with deviating university bachelor can only be admitted to master IST if the deficiency is not more than 15 ects (3 5 ects courses).

We suggest these students checking our bachelor program Computer Science and Engineering

https://studiegids.tue.nl/opleidingen/bachelor-college/majors/computer-science-and-engineering/curriculum/

to make an estimate for themselves that the deficiency is not more than 15 ects.

And if they feel that the deficiency is not more than 15 ects submit a master program application for the decision of our admission committee.
