Double Degree Incoming

Double Degree Programme for Incomers

If there is a Double Degree agreement between your home university and the Department for Electrical Engineering and Information Technololgy at TU Darmstadt (TU Da), you may apply for an exchange programme that lasts up to two years. In addition to the degree of your home university you will get the Master of Science from TU Darmstadt.

This page provides information on the individual processes at the partner universities.

The Double Degree Programmes are structured differently, depending on your home country's university system. Generally, you will start your studies at your home university.

The general timeline for each partner university can be found in the following spreadsheet:

Orientational Event

Every semester the department holds an orientational event for students from abroad (TUCaN module 18-de-8002-ov). If you are enrolled in a Master's Course at TU Darmstadt., you may also attend the introductory event for Master's students (TUCaN-Modulnummer 18-de-2110-ov).

Mechatronics students

It is currently not possible to enrol in mechatronics at TU Darmstadt. You may, however, focus on mechatronics-orientated courses (automation systems, micro and precision engineering) when enrolled as a student of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology. After the succesful completion of the Double Degree Programme, you will receive a degree in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology from TU Darmstadt.

Specific characteristics

The course of study for the Double Degree Programme depends on whether the students have successfully completed Iniciação científica (IC) or not. If you successfully completed the IC, you're going to spend seven semesters at USP, four semesters at TU Darmstadt, and one semester back at USP. The master's thesis is going to be written in your third semester at TU Darmstadt.

If you come from ENSEA and want to enrol in Electrical Energy Technology, you will have to acquire the presupposed basics autodidactically.

CentraleSupélec's general course of study is still open for changes, since Ecole Centrale Paris and Supélec recently merged. Updated information is expected to be released in autumn.
