Bachelor's degree in Industrial Technologies and Economic Analysis (interuniversity UPC-UPF degree)

2017-2018 academic year
The bachelor’s degree in Industrial Technologies and Economic Analisys, which is taught entirely in English, aims to produce engineers whose cross-disciplinary training encompasses the fields of industrial engineering and economics and who are equipped to deal with the challenges of an ever-changing society. It is intended that graduates of the bachelor's degree take on leadership positions in companies and adopt a responsible attitude to the environment.

The degree involves and receives funding from Catalan companies though the FemCAT foundation and has its own grant programme and student recruitment system. It has an eminently practical and international vocation: students are encouraged to go on work placements and build up their CVs outside Catalonia.

It is an interuniversity bachelor's degree that is taught with the Faculty of Economic and Business Sciences of Pompeu Fabra University. Graduates gain direct admission to the master's degree in Industrial Engineering, which officially qualifies them for practice as industrial engineers in Spain.

Entrance requirements include knowledge of the English language and a personal interview and aptitude test.
