Master’s Programs in Energy Engineering, Urban Development, and Water Engineering, Germany

Publish Date: Oct 21, 2015

Deadline: Feb 09, 2016

About Master Programs

We have removed the fixed application periods for our three Master’s programs in Energy Engineering, Urban Development, and Water Engineering. The programs commence once per year in October. You can now apply for the next intake up to twelve months in advance.

We expect this change in procedures to significantly enhance the chances of our prospective students to find suitable scholarships, as many donor organizationsrequire several months to process funding requests. We therefore advise all interested students to apply for our Master’s programs as early as possible. After reviewing and approving your application documents, we will issue a Letter of Acceptance, which you can submit to scholarships providers with a request for financial assistance.

To avoid misunderstandings during your application, we would like to stress that our Master’s programs take place in El Gouna, Egypt (two or three semesters, depending on the program), and Berlin, Germany (one semester or one-month excursion, depending on the program). The tuition fees for our two-year Master’s programs amount to €20,000. For further information, please consult our FAQ section.

An academic background in the form of a relevant Bachelor’s degree or equivalent is an obligatory requirement for all Master’s programs at TU Berlin Campus El Gouna.

Also, if English was the official language of instruction of your previous degree, you can be exempted from the language test.

Application Periods

In order to enhance the application process, there are three different application periods.

Early Application - until 9 February 2016:
Applications submitted by 9 February 2015 will be answered as soon as possible with a Preliminary Letter of Acceptance under the condition that all documents (including transcripts) have been delivered and the applicant meets the eligibility criteria. This procedure supports our candidates' quest to obtain external funding or scholarships.

Regular Application - 10 February until 31 May 2016:
All documents have to be submitted and only complete applications will be processed. We expect applicants of this group to arrange their own funding as it is difficult to obtain any scholarships on such short notice.

Late Application - 1 June 2015 until 31 August 2016:
After the end of the regular application period you can still apply for our Master's programs until the maximum number of students for each program has been reached. All documents have to be submitted and only complete applications will be processed. We expect applicants of this group to arrange their own funding as it is difficult to obtain any scholarships on such short notice.
