Mandatory Matching

We think it is important for you to choose a programme that suits you, so that you can complete your studies successfully. To increase the chance of success, Mechanical Engineering applicants need to take part in obligatory matching activities. These activities aim to give our applicants a good overview of the programme, experience the various fields of mechanical engineering (mechanics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, energy, systems and control, dynamic systems, design and construction) and taste the programme's atmosphere.

The mandatory matching process consists of several steps. First, you will receive a questionnaire about your skills and expectations of the programme. Once you have filled in and sent the questionnaire, you will receive an invitation for a matching day. During the matching day you will participate in several activities (lecture, group assignment, etc.) and meet with staff and students. Depending on the outcomes of the questionnaire and the results of the matching day, you might be approached for a meeting with a staff member or senior student. You may also request an additional meeting yourself. When you have finished the entire matching procedure, we will send you a recommendation.

The annual dates for the matching days will be communicated in advance on our website. After you have applied for Mechanical Engineering, you will automatically receive more information about the matching activities and you will be able to sign up for one of these events. Please keep in mind that admission without participation in the matching event is not possible. Also, it is a recommendation, not a selection process. The result is neither binding nor can it be used as proof of admission. More information can be found on the Educational website of Mechanical Engineering. Please do not hesitate to contact us if needed.
