Finally, students are required to take 36 ECTS corresponding to optional subjects. Firstly, there is a group of eight optional subjects, divided into two different routes: Acoustic Engineering and Audiovisual Technology. Each route is worth 24 ECTS (comprising 4 subjects, each worth 6 ECTS), although students need only take 18 ECTS to pass either route. Secondly, two optional subjects in English are offered, specific to all courses at the Polytechnic University College at the University of Alicante. Lastly, a maximum of 12 ECTS credits are offered for work experience programmes. These are optional and may be taken in modules, each worth 6 ECTS. Thus, a wide range of possibilities are available to the student as regards combining optional subjects, as shown below:

  • Route 1 + 1 or 2 free-elective optional subjects + 12 or 6 work experience ECTS.
  • Route 2 + 1 or 2 free-elective optional subjects + 12 or 6 work experience ECTS.
  • 4 free-elective optional subjects + 12 work experience ECTS.
  • Route 1 + Route 2

Furthermore, as part of the free-elective optional group of subjects, students may be awarded up to 6 ECTS credits for participating in cultural, sporting, student representation, charity and cooperation activities at university.

It is envisaged that teaching hours will be adapted to the particular circumstances of the students for whom this Bridging Course is intended, most of whom may be working.   This timetable will achieve the dual objective of enabling students to attend the course, and avoiding any possible conflict of teaching duties between the Bridging Course and the Degree course, in accordance with the timetable established in the course programme.

 

Quality parameter results

It is envisaged that the indicator values suggested for the Degree course will improve, since students will consist of qualified Telecommunications Engineering Technicians with a comprehensive knowledge of the subject matter and, in many cases, professional work experience.  Therefore, the following indicator values are proposed:

  • Effectiveness rate    > 60 %.
  • Graduation rate > 60 %.
  • Dropout rate   < 10 %.

 

Implementation timescale for the Bridging Course between Telecommunications Engineering Technician (Sound and Image) and Degree in Sound and Image Engineering in Telecommunications

It is envisaged that implementation of the Bridging Course enabling holders of the Telecommunications Engineering Technician (Sound and Image) qualification to obtain a Degree in Sound and Image Engineering in Telecommunications will begin in the academic year 2011-2012, and will be offered until the academic year 2012-2013.
