• Admission Requirements


Applicant Profile

The admissions requirements for the Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering at the Universitat Ramon Llull take into account the provisions set forth in Order CIN/311/2009, on February 9. In section 4.2 of the annex of the order, the following requirements are established:

  • Students shall have access to the Master's Degree entitling them to work as an industrial engineer if they have previously acquired the competencies set forth in section 3 of the Ministerial Order establishing the requirements for the verification of officially recognised University qualifications entitling students to carry out the profession of industrial engineer, in agreement with the provisions of section 5 of the aforementioned Ministerial Order.
  • Students shall have access to the Master's Degree if their academic qualification certifies that their course included a basic core module and an industrial branch module, even if this did not include a complete section on specific technology, and if 48 credits of those offered in all the blocks of said module of the qualification entitle the students to work as industrial engineers, in accordance with the aforementioned Ministerial Order.
  • Students who have any other Bachelor's Degree will also be allowed to pursue this Master's Degree but, in this case, specific additional academic modules considered necessary will be established.

What has been agreed in the conferences held by the directors of Industrial Engineering Technology and Industrial Engineering will also be taken into consideration. Section 2 of said agreement, which was sent to ANECA, states that the Industrial Engineering program (bachelor's degree and master's degree) must include:

  • A minimum of 180 ECTS credits (between the bachelor's degree and master's degree) of compulsory basic core module subjects, compulsory subjects of the industrial branch and specific technologies defined in MO CIN/351/2009. The specific technology subjects will have to be part of at least three different blocks of specific technologies defined in aforementioned MO, with a minimum of 6 credits per block.
  • A minimum of 24 ECTS credits (between the bachelor's degree and the master's degree) have to correspond to compulsory subjects that certify the specific competencies of mathematics (including statistics), and a minimum of 12 ECTS credits need to correspond to compulsory subjects that certify the basic competencies of physics. The competencies mentioned refer to the ones included in the basic core module of Ministerial Order CIN/351/2009
  • A minimum of 24 ECTS credits obtained in advanced level modules (between the bachelor's degree and the master's degree)
  • A minimum of 24 ECTS credits adding up the final year project of the bachelor's degree and the Master Thesis

 

Admission

The most common path to the Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering at the Universitat Ramon Llull is after having completed the bachelor's degree in Industrial Engineering Technology. Students who have studied the bachelor's degree in Industrial Engineering and meet the requirements of Ministerial Order CIN/351/2009 and the agreements of the conferences held by the directors of Industrial Engineering Technology and Industrial Engineering will also be able to enrol in the Master's Degree. Those students who have any other bachelor's degree will also have access to this Master's Degree but, in this case, specific additional academic modules will be established.

In the case of students who have not studied in Spain but in an EU Member State or in other countries with which Spain has established international reciprocity agreements, candidates who want to study at a Spanish University will need to meet the academic requirements established in their respective educational systems in order to have access to graduate level courses in their home country.

Students from foreign educational systems to which the previous option does not apply will need to validate their diploma obtained in their home country as equivalent to a Spanish Bachillerato and need to pass the University entrance exams.

Transfer Requirements

Transfer requirements will be addressed by the Permanent Committee of the Academic Board on a case-by-case basis to establish the appropriate recognition of credits. The Committee will handle the admission of students from any Spanish or foreign university system who have studied at the undergraduate level within the EHEA framework.

For students from other European Union Member States or from countries with which Spain has international agreements, students must hold a degree that allows admission to equivalent graduate programmes in the student’s country of origin. Students from other countries are required to pass the specific university exams beforehand.

Completion Requirements

Students must pass all credits in order to obtain the Master's Degree.

During the academic year, students will normally have two opportunities to pass exams: in February and in June – for the first semester subjects – and in June and in September – for the second semester subjects, or for subjects that last two consecutive semesters.  In the event that a student has not earned a minimum of 36 ECTS credits within the first year, they will not be able to submit the Master Thesis.

If a student does not pass a subject in the ordinary examination periods, they have two extra examination periods available to do so. Once the two extra examination periods have been used, students can request the Permanent Commission of the Academic Board (PCAB) to review their case, enclosing a statement justifying their reasons for not passing with the request. The PCAB may complement this information by consulting with the Master’s programme coordinator. If a student does not pass the subject through this additional call, they must leave the programme.
