It's useful to know

In the Bachelor's degree in Industrial Technologies Engineering, you will learn the foundation of all areas of engineering and technology. To design, develop and analyse:

  • vehicles, machines and structures (mechanical engineering) 
  • electronic components, automatic systems and robots (electronic and automated engineering)
  • chemical processes and environmental management (chemical engineering).

At the same time, you will acquire the scientific and mathematical knowledge for understanding the necessary technical and scientific literature to carry out research and development (R+D+I) in any of these areas, as well as to interpret reports drafted by other specialist engineers. This multidisciplinary ability will allow you to lead cross-disciplinary working parties and work as a manager in technology companies.

Careers

A recent slogan of the Col·legi d’Enginyers Industrials de Catalunya was “In everything and for everything”. The slogan shows how the main sectors of the industry will be opened up to you:

  • Machinery: from machinery for the meat industry (extremely important in the Girona province) to turbines and equipment. 
  • Automation and control: robotics, automated systems, communications.
  • Production: production plant management, production automation, maintenance, pharmaceutical, energy and foodstuff production, etc.
  • Materials: metallurgical production, plastics, composite materials (carbon fibre, glass fibre), waste recycling and reuse.
  • Vehicles: production line, component design.
  • Safety and quality: safety in the workplace, facility safety, safety in design, quality assurance.
  • Energy: renewable energy facilities, energy supply and economy, turbine design.
  • Transport and logistics: means of transport, warehouses and distribution, facilities management.
  • Industrial management: project management, procurement, patents, company management.
  • Industrial construction: steel and concrete structures, supply facilities, building and industrial facility projects, and site management.
  • Other specific fields: research and development, medical applications, sport applications.

The unemployment rate among Industrial Engineers is very low since over 90% gain work in areas relating to engineering and technology, according to several sources such as the Agència de Qualitat Universitària (Government of Catalonia), the Ministry for the Economy, Industry and Competitiveness, and the newspapers El País and La Vanguardia.

Continue studying

The Bachelor's degree in Industrial Technologies Engineering is designed to be complemented by the Master in Industrial Engineering, which is the only official master's degree that authorises the holder to enter the industrial engineer profession. While the most natural path for a graduate of Engineering in Industrial Technologies is to enter the Master in Industrial Engineering programme, the bachelor’s degree also opens up other scientific and technology post-graduate courses. For those wishing to continue into academia, the Doctoral Programme in Technology is also available.

Practical work experience

All subjects have a practical aspect that carries a lot of weight on the course. You will carry out the practical projects in small groups in laboratories with equipment adapted to current needs.

Businesses play a large role at the Polytechnic School. As an electrical engineering student, you will be able to take up work placements from a number of companies. You will be able to choose between over 450 options available each year.

Bachelor's thesis

During the last year of the degree you will complete an End of degree project, in which you will demonstrate the knowledge you have acquired over the course of the degree.

The bachelor's thesis is an engineering project on whatever subject you choose; it is carried out under the supervision of a lecturer. If you wish, you can complete this in a company or research group.

The business association that supports the Polytechnic School and the professional college of engineers award prizes to the best theses every year.

Examples of theses

Mobility

Students can complete part of their degree programme abroad through the Erasmus programme, which enables them to carry on their studies whilst undertaking an international exchange with academic value in a European university.

They also have access to grants for placements at Spanish universities and those on other continents, thanks to bilateral agreements, the SICUE programme and the expansion of the Erasmus+ Programme.

Enrolment

Enrolment in the first year

  1. You can consult the results of the assignment, before you enrol, from the University Admission's Portal and find out your options according to the examination session you have been assigned to (June or September).
  2. Once the Catalan government has assigned you your place, you will receive an email from the UdG containing the keys of your first digital identity (user code and password) as a UdG student, as well as links to the online-enrolment app and an explanatory tutorial on how to enrol online.
