OB = obligatory / OP = optional
 


Route 1: students who have completed a Bachelor's Degree in Industrial Engineering Technology (profile A according to the document of the conferences held by the directors of industrial engineering technology and industrial engineering) and want to enhance their skills acquired related to research, development and innovation. This is a good option for those who would like to pursue doctoral studies.


Route 2: students who have completed a Bachelor's Degree in Industrial Engineering Technology (profile A according to the document of the conferences held by the directors of industrial engineering technology and industrial engineering) and want to enhance their skills acquired related to the industrial engineer profession by participating in internships in companies or centres in the field of industrial engineering. Students can do an internship in companies, technological centres, engineering offices or research laboratories for a total of 16 credits.


Route 3: this route allows students to complete additional specific academic modules, within the Master's Degree. It is intended for students who have completed a Bachelor's Degree related to engineering and partially meet the requirements of Ministerial Order CIN/311/2009, of 9 February (profile B according to the document agreed upon by the conferences of the directors of industrial engineering technology and industrial engineering) and students with degrees, that, in order to meet the requirements of Ministerial Order CIN/311/2009, of 9 February have to do additional specific academic modules within and outside the Master's Degree (profile C according to the document agreed upon by the conferences held by the directors of industrial engineering technology and industrial engineering). It is advisable to take subjects from three specific technologies, with a minimum of 6 ECTS credits each to be chosen from the following subjects: mechanics, electricity, industrial chemistry, textile, and industrial electronics. This is why students who require additional specific academic modules in the Master's Degree choose optional subjects from module M4 in case they need to complete specific technical subjects. They will be able to combine two specialisation subjects from module 4 (6 credits each) and one from an optional module worth four credits.


The Master's Degree enables students to enrol in PhD Programmes. The Universitat Ramon Llull currently offers a Doctoral Programme in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, which has obtained several awards as well as the designation of Pathway to Excellence, which was valid from 2011-2012 to 2013-2014 (BOE, resolution of 6 October 2011 of the General Secretary of Universities of the Ministry of Education).
