Fast track Bachelor admission to International Studies in Engineering.

Fast track bachelor admission to International Studies in Engineering is a special program offered by Univesität Duisburg Essen (UDE) to the most excellent students from Indonesia and Malaysia.

In January 2013 the Ministry of Higher Education of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) has issued a modified university law, allowing (in its paragraph 49) specific high school leavers to commence studies in NRW without following a prior ‘Studienkolleg’ or ‘freshman program’ (or similar).

Referring to the long cooperation between UDE and Malaysia and Indonesia that had begun in 2003, UDE has chosen Southeast Asia as region for this new project, and to allow excellent students to pursue their Bachelor Degree directly after finishing high school. In this project, UDE is permitted to select the candidates and to conduct some preparation courses directly in home country.

There will be many beneficial aspects that students can get from this special program: One of them is saving study time, and greatly reduce expenses for preparation and study costs.

After passing the entry exam, students will be guaranteed places in one of following ISE programs:

  • Structural Engineering
