The timeline (including deadlines) of the application, selection & enrolment procedure for the Bachelor's in Technical Computer Science is described in steps 1 to 3. An overview of these steps and corresponding deadlines is depicted in this step-by-step plan.
The exam consists of three consecutive tests. None of these tests assume any knowledge of programming, nor is any other foreknowledge required to participate in the Entrance Exam. Each test is a weighted part (%) of the final score:
- Logical Thinking (30 minutes, 20% of the final score) is about your ability to reason in a systematic way and apply logic to solve problems.
- Algorithmic Thinking (45 minutes, 40%) is about solving puzzles, applying process-oriented thinking skills and in general your ability to come up with efficient solutions to computational problems.
- Mathematical Thinking (45 minutes, 40%) is about your skills in applying school-level mathematics without using a calculator.
