  • Curriculum


The Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering consists of 120 ECTS spread over 6 modules. The modules are structured in three academic semesters of 30 ECTS credits each, and a fourth semester consisting of 30 credits allotted to the Master Thesis, which includes the final requirement of a public defense before a tribunal of field experts.

The modules of the master are:

*CPS stands for compulsory subject and OS for optional subject.
 

Route 1: for 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 increase the skills acquired related to research, development and innovation. This is a good option for those who would like to undertake 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 increase the skills acquired related to the industrial engineer profession by partake in companies internships or centers in the field of industrial engineering. They can do an internship in: companies, technological centers, engineering offices or research laboratories for a total of 16 credits.


Route 3: Allows students to complete additional specific academic modules, within the master's degree; 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 of 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 the 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 specialization subjects from module 4 (6 credits each) and one from an optional module worth four credits.


The master's degree enables students to enroll in doctoral undertake PhD programs. The Universitat Ramon Llull currently offers a doctoral program in chemistry and chemical engineering, which have obtained several quality awards as well as the designation of Pathway to excellence, which is valid from 2011-2012 to 2013-2014 (BOE, resolution of 6 October 2011 of the General Secretary of Universities of the Ministry of Education).
