Master's degree in Neuroengineering and Rehabilitation

Barcelona School of Industrial Engineering (ETSEIB)

The master’s degree in Neuroengineering and Rehabilitation aims to produce highly qualified engineers by providing students with multidisciplinary training and developing a high level of competence that enables them to easily adapt to positions of responsibility with hospitals, companies or research centres in the field of neuroengineering and rehabilitation. Students will acquire knowledge of the theoretical and practical foundations of neuroengineering and rehabilitation and the technology associated with this field. The subjects taught provide knowledge and skills related to neural engineering; sensory, brain and muscle systems; assistive technology; and cognitive, motor and cardiorespiratory therapies, among others.

General requirements
Academic requirements for admission to master's degrees
Specific requirements
To be admitted to the master’s degree, applicants must have at least a B2.2 level of English as defined in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. However, applicants will not be required to pass any specific test of their linguistic competence in English to gain admission.

Direct admission
The master’s degree is designed for students who have completed a bachelor’s degree in engineering and acquired at least a basic multidisciplinary knowledge of fields such as instrumentation, electronics, mechanics, informatics and discrete-time control. The bachelor’s degrees that provide training in all of these fields and that therefore best prepare students for this master’s degree and qualify them for direct admission are those listed below. Graduates of these degrees are not required to take any bridging courses.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Technology Engineering.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Engineering Physics.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Electronics and Automatic Control Engineering.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering.

The master’s degree will focus on further developing and applying this technical knowledge in the health field, specifically in neuroengineering and rehabilitation.

Bridging courses
For holders of degrees other than those that provide direct admission, the academic committee may consider an applicant’s previous training on a case-by-case basis and determine what bridging courses must be taken to attain the required level of knowledge and skills in accordance with the entrance qualification.

These degrees are the following:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Electronic Engineering and Telecommunications.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Electronic Systems Engineering.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Telecommunications Systems Engineering.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Informatics Engineering.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Materials Engineering.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Physics.
  • Other engineering degrees or equivalent pre-EHEA degrees.
For students who have completed one of these degrees, the academic committee for the master’s degree will determine what bridging courses must be taken on a case-by-case basis according to the applicant’s degree and previous training.

The bridging courses required will depend on the undergraduate degree and optional subjects a student has taken, which, given the defined admission profile, must be related to the following subjects and credit ranges, as stipulated by the academic committee:
  • Mechanical and Materials Engineering (from 0 to 10.5 credits).
  • Electrical, Electronic and Automatic Control Engineering (from 0 to 12 credits).
  • Industrial Electronics (from 0 to 6 credits); Signals and Systems (from 0 to 4.5 credits).
  • Other subjects stipulated by the committee in accordance with the entrance profile.
Students who would need to complete bridging courses carrying a total of over 30 ECTS credits will not be admitted to the master’s degree.

Bridging courses must be taken in the first semester of the programme and must be subjects currently taught in bachelor’s degrees offered by the Barcelona School of Industrial Engineering (ETSEIB) or equivalent subjects authorised by the academic committee for the master’s degree.
