ACCESS

The Master can be accessed by candidates who are in possession of a BSc degree in Engineering or Science obtained in Spain, or in another country, who have studied a total of 240 ECTS credits of university studies, or the equivalent. Access will be granted by the Vice-Rectorate for PhD and Postgraduate Studies of the UPM following the legalization process for academic documents issued abroad.

Among the assessment criteria taken into account by the Vice-Rectorate for PhD and Postgraduate Studies for the access of students are the criteria established in the article 16 of Real Decree 1393/2007 for the access to official Master’s teachings:

1. In order to be admitted into the official Master studies, the student must hold an official Spanish university degree or one obtained at an institution of higher education in the European Space for Higher Education authorized in Spain to accede to the Master teachings.
2. Similarly, students from educational systems outside the European Space of Higher Education, without the need for accreditation of their degrees, upon establishing at the Polytechnic University of Madrid that these studies demonstrate a level of training equivalent to official Spanish universities degrees and which qualifies students for access to post-graduate studies in the country of issue. Access via this route will not mean, in any case, official accreditation of the previous degree held by the student, or recognition for any purpose other than access to the Master course.
