• Exchange programs


The Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering does not include a compulsory stay abroad. The Master Thesis may, however, be carried out in companies or industries (professional and business profile) or at Universities or research centers (research profile).  A mixture of both options is possible, depending on the student's orientation. It may be necessary to do an internship in a company in order to carry out your Final Master's Project.
 
Students of the Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering who have completed the subjects of the first two semesters and meet the necessary requirements may apply to do their final project partially or completely at another University, research center, national or foreign company IQS has established a collaboration agreement with for this purpose.
 
Students from other Universities who are doing a master's degree similar to the Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering may also request to do their Master Thesis in one of the research groups at the IQS School of Engineering participating in the Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering, as long as a collaboration agreement between both institutions has previously been established.
 
In both cases the Master Thesis will need to be defended at the student's University of origin so that credits will be granted at the student's original University. The collaboration agreement between both institutions will need to specify the duration of the Master Thesis as well as the time allotted for the completion of the thesis for the ECTS credits included in the curriculum to be recognized.
