What is the Official Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering?

The Official Master’s Degree in Industrial Engineering continues the over 100-year tradition of the ICAI School of Engineering, adapting to a society in which internationalization, and communication and leadership skills are indispensable for achieving professional success. It combines general training that is applicable to many industrial and business sectors with specific knowledge of this specialist area, and all through a practice-based program in which students play a leading role. Comprehensive training and internationalization are two of the program's distinctive characteristics.

In addition to the Master’s Degree in Industrial Engineering, our students will have the opportunity to study a double-degree program, taking on another Comillas Master’s Degree, or one from a foreign university with which Comillas has established a double-degree partnership. This Master's Degree is a two-year course, although some of the double-degree programs with foreign universities may require a longer study period.

Comprehensive training and internationalization are distinctive features of the program

Students who obtain the Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering can register with the ICAI's National Engineers Association and work in the legally regulated profession of Industrial Engineer.
