Master's degree in Interdisciplinary and Innovative Engineering

Barcelona East School of Engineering (EEBE)

Today’s society demands breakthrough technologies in emerging areas such as energy management, digital industry and healthcare. Facing such challenges requires that interdisciplinary engineering teams work together to come up with creative, reliable, ethical and sustainable solutions.

One of the key factors in leading successful projects is for professionals from different areas to have strong skills in modern engineering methods such as big data, 3D printing, smart sensors and computer simulation. The master's degree in Interdisciplinary and Innovative Engineering (master's degree website) has been designed to enhance your academic background with such skills, thus preparing you for the future.

The specialisations will allow you to face real problems in three emerging areas of application: energy-efficient systems, smart factories and healthcare technologies. A research-oriented master’s thesis worth 30 ECTS credits will provide you with the opportunity to collaborate with R&D departments at companies, research centres and hospitals.
