Elite program

Special Elite program for particularly qualified Master students in the context of the Elite Network of Bavaria

In winter 2004/2005, a special elite program has been launched in the framework of the Elite Netzwerk Bayern initiative. This top-level program explicitly addresses the most capable and dedicated students of the Master Program Computational Engineering.
The cornerstones of the elite program will be:

  • extensive project work, in cooperation with an industry partner whenever this is possible
  • summer/winter academies and block tutorials will lead you to a deeper understanding of your fields of interest
  • developing soft skills – in additional courses, we will try not only to advance your technical knowlegde, but also improve your skills in management, communication, teamwork, and related topics

Application and Admission

As an extension to the regular CE Master Program, the Elite program requires independent admission. The admission procedure to the Honours Program is carried out during the first semester. The student is expected to achieve an average grade of 2.0 or better in the first semester (German grading system: best grade is 1.0, minimum grade to pass is 4.0). After a formal application, the applicant will be invited for an interview with the Honours commission. If the Honours board support the application, admission will be granted.
