It's useful to know

The Bachelor's Degree in Automatic and Industrial Electronic Engineering provides a qualification that offers great opportunities for immediate work, whether in industry, services or civil service or self-employment. Accordingly, it provides students with the knowledge and skills to work in one of today’s most important sectors for economic development.

The degree is based on fundamental subjects like algebra, calculus and physics. These subjects, together with electronics, provide the necessary foundations for understanding more industrial-based subjects. Over the course of the degree, subjects will expand into more practical and typical course subjects, which relate to automation, electricity, electronics and control.

It cannot be emphasised enough that the best driver in these studies is motivation. The Automation and Industrial Electronics Engineering degree is best suited to those people who want to be involved in the development of society - and particularly of a modern, competitive industry - who are interested in the methods and systems of manipulating and transforming materials and energy and are curious about modern technology and advances.

Competences

The aim of this degree is to provide students with the tools to acquire the necessary skills to practise the profession:

  • Drafting, signing, developing and directing projects in the area of industrial engineering.
  • Understanding the basic subjects and technologies that provide them with the skills for learning new methods and theories as well as the versatility for adapting to new situations.
  • Ability to take the initiative in problem-solving, decision making, creativity and critical reasoning, and the ability to communicate and transfer knowledge, as well as skills and aptitudes in the field of industrial engineering.
  • Knowledge on taking measurements, making calculations, appraisals, valuations, studies, reports, work plans and similar activities.
  • Ability to handle specifications, regulations and rules.
  • Ability to analyse and assess the social and environmental impact of technical solutions.
  • Ability to supervise, organise and plan, whether in a corporate context or in other institutions and organisations.
  • Ability to work in a multilingual and multidisciplinary environment.
  • Knowledge, understanding and ability to apply the legislation applicable to industrial technical engineers.

Careers

This degree offers great opportunities for entering the job market in relation to industrial control and automation projects, industrial robotics companies and the industrial electronics industry, as well as in industry in general, services, the civil service and self-employment.

The degree endows students with the professional skill set for drafting, signing, developing and supervising projects within the entire field of industrial engineering, in particular projects for industrial process control and automation facilities, home automation installations, energy installations and certain electrical installations.

Continue studying

The strong correlation between the Bachelor's degree in Automation and Industrial Electronics Engineering and the Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering allows you to enrol in the double degree combining the two disciplines; and, if you take subjects relating to automation and industrial electronics, you can also be awarded a Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering in only one year.

The Bachelor's degree in Automation and Industrial Electronics Engineering provides direct access to the Master's degree in Industrial Engineering, which is the only official master's degree that qualifies you to practise in the state-regulated profession of industrial engineer.

Moreover, this degree also opens up paths to other technology and science master's degrees and, if you want to go into research, you can apply for the Doctoral Programme in Technology.
