GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE COURSE PROGRAMME

 

The course has been structured around three main areas:

Firstly, and in accordance with the terms of the previously mentioned Decree, the first half of the course programme contains the core subjects, worth a total of 60 ECTS credits, of which 54 pertain to Engineering and Architecture, while the other 6 pertain to Social and Legal Sciences (Statistics).

The second part of the programme contains the Compulsory subjects, aimed at guaranteeing that students acquire the required skills associated with the Degree, worth 108 ECTS credits, in addition to the obligatory Final Project, worth 12 ECTS. The Final Project is carried out in the final semester and is aimed at assessing the level of skills acquired.  Prior to evaluation for the final project, the student must provide evidence of ability in a foreign language.  Among other possible qualifications, at the University of Alicante the minimum necessary requirement is to have attained level B1 of the European Framework of Reference for Languages, and this requirement may be raised in the future.

The final part of the programme contains the 60 optional ECTS, of which 48 correspond to one of the specialisations established in the Resolution published in the Spanish State Gazette (BOE) on 4 August 2009, while the other 12 ECTS, broken down into 6 plus 6 credits, allow students to combine and choose from work experience, optional subjects from other routes, and English, offered in order to enable students to meet one of the targets established under Art. 16.3 of the University of Alicante regulations; or for credit transfer and validation, in accordance with the system proposed by the University of Alicante, in accordance with the terms of Art. 13 of Royal Decree 1393/2007. Students can thus choose their own curricular direction.

PROCEDURE FOR APPLYING FOR ADMISSION: PRE-ENROLMENT AND REGISTRATION

  • Anticipated number of places offered during the first pre-enrolment session: 240 
  • Applicants admitted to a course must formally register within the timescale established annually in the enrolment calendar. Registration Information.


RECOMMENDED APPLICANT PROFILE

 

The recommended educational background would be a high school diploma specialising in Science and Technology, with a solid grounding in Mathematics and Physics.

Students should also possess the following aptitudes and skills:

  • Numerical skills: ability, speed and accuracy when dealing with figures and problem-solving. 
  •  Logical reasoning: capacity to understand the relationship between events and find the causes, predict consequences and thus resolve problems coherently.
  • Abstract reasoning: ability to separate or extract aspects of a situation or problem.
  • Observant: capacity to perceive the details of objects, phenomena or events, detecting their distinguishing qualities and appreciating their differences with respect to others.
  • Capacity for attention:  concentration, ability to voluntarily focus the senses and attention on an object or activity, disregarding other events happening at the same time.  

Although new students will obviously have formed their own personalities, it would be an advantage if they were open, critical thinkers, responsible and dynamic, and interested in new advances. To summarise, new students should ideally possess the capacity for work (perseverance, method and rigour), the capacity for reasoning and critical analysis, the ability to work individually or as part of a team, the capacity to obtain, interpret and apply knowledge, problem-solving skills, the capacity for synthesis and abstraction and good communication skills.
