Applicants profile and Carrer Oportunities

Graduates from Engineering, Architecture and Science area accepted for the MSc.

European Higher Education Area

The European Higher Education Area (EHEA) is starting to crystallize in our university system. The Royal Decrees concerning bachelor degrees and graduate studies published in January 2005 launched the process of reforms and the implementation of a first and second cycle with the characteristics decided upon in Bologna.

This is a significant change in the concept we used to have of the study programs, which are now conceived of as a coherent and structured offer of subjects grouped by field and graduated according to a specific amount of teaching credits.

This imposes an organization of the knowledge within a syllabus and a training program that embraces students from day one, training them both in generic and transversal skills –i.e., abilities- by offering activities that go beyond the syllabus. Actions are taken to facilitate the student’s incorporation to society, through an enterprising placement program or the supervision of a final project. Thus, a strong differentiating factor between different universities is introduced, and they can take advantage of their strengths both with regards to their faculty and their research lines in order to come up with their own and unique training and quality imprint.

Meanwhile, structured PhD programs become the natural continuation of research-oriented masters, their excellence being guaranteed by the qualities listed by the Ministry of Education and Science.
