General requirements
Academic requirements for admission to master's degrees
Admission criteria
English level B2 and Spanish level B2.2 are required (foreign students). The university of origin and the first degree will be considered, particularly the appropriateness of the scientific and technological content of the basic curriculum, the shared industrial engineering module and the specific technology module of the first degree . The academic committee of the master's degree will assign a mark to candidates that is weighted in the following way:
- 50% of the mark reflects the correspondence between the competencies of the first degree and the competencies of the master's degree.
- 40% of the mark reflects the weighted average of the marks on the academic transcript (the marks for the thesis and optional subjects are not included).
- 10% of the mark reflects the candidate's professional experience.
