As this is an official master's degree of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), graduates who hold an official bachelor’s degree of at least 240 ECTS credits (4 years) and this master’s degree of 60 ECTS credits fulfill the requirement of having at least 300 ECTS in official programmes and may therefore seek admission to a doctoral programme to pursue an official doctoral degree.

What is the difference between a master's degree and a professional master's degree?

Double-degree agreements
MASTEAM has double degree agreements with similar master’s degrees that allow our students to obtain two master’s degrees in two years (see the details of each agreement). Agreements have been signed with:

- The Laurea Magistrale in Ingegneria delle Telecomunicazioni, Università degli Studi dell'Aquila (UNIVAQ, Italy). Students spend one year in Barcelona + one year in L'Aquila. More details.

Cranfield University (UK),  including student exchanges with 8 different master programs in the ICT, automotive and aeronautics fields. Students spend one year in
Barcelona + one year in Cranfield. More details

Mobility: The MASTEAM has Erasmus agreements with more than 30 European universities and with other universities outside Europe that allow our students to spend one or two semesters abroad doing the master's thesis (and sometimes also optional courses). In this case students will only obtain the MASTEAM degree with the mobility mention.Double-degree pathways with universities around the world
