The first eligibility criterion concerns the bachelor education of the applicant. Candidates must have at least a Bachelor degree (minimum 180 ECTS credits or equivalent) in the fields related to engineering or science (including but not limited to material science, textiles, chemistry, bioscience, mechanical engineering) including 15 ECTS in mathematics and a total of 10 ECTS pure or applied chemistry and physics or an equivalent level, from a recognised university or engineering college. For applications on the basis of a diploma issued in a country that ratified the Lisbon Recognition Convention, the principles of this convention will be honoured. Students who are about to complete their bachelor degree can be admitted under the condition of successful completion of the bachelor degree by the start of the intake.
For students having a background that does not fully meet the requirements concerning maths, physics and chemistry, the MB may design a preparatory programme that fills the gaps in their education so that upon successful completion of this programme the student meets the first criterion. In such case, the student must have fully completed the preparatory programme by the start of the WE-TEAM programme and successfully pass the full selection procedure for the other criteria.
