Applicant Profile/Requirements and Documentation

X

Applicant profile:
The Master's Degree is intended for engineers and licentiate degree holders in sciences who would like to work in the railway sector, as well as for professionals working in this sector who would like to complement their training. The need to keep up-to-date with the different disciplines requires serious dedication throughout the entire course, provided the full program is studied. However, class timetables are compatible with a reasonably taxing professional schedule, and it is also possible to study the program over two consecutive years.

This Master's Degree is recommended for candidates who hold a Bachelor's Degree in Industrial Engineering or similar, as well those who hold degrees in sciences. The following order of preference is given for candidates' previous studies: (1) industrial engineers, (2) aeronautical, naval and mining engineers, (3) civil, telecommunications, information technology and other engineers, (4) licentiate degree holders in sciences (such as physics).

Admission requirements:
To hold an official Spanish university qualification or another issued by a higher education institute from the European Higher Education Area which enables the person to access the Master's Degree.

To hold a Licentiate Degree or a Degree in Engineering or Architecture compliant with the university system existing before the one set forth by Royal Decree 1393/2007.

To have training in engineering or in any of the specialist areas of the Master's Degree. This training may be compensated for by professional experience.

Admission criteria:
- Academic record of the degree program entitling the applicant to be admitted to the Master's program (70%).
- Curriculum vitae, references, candidate statement of interest and, if required, a personal interview (30%). Professional experience in the railway sector is taken into consideration if the recommended academic profile is lacking in any way.

Admission to the Master's program is competitive. A minimum weighted average grade of 7 out of 10 points is required in all cases.

Admission is at the discretion of the Director of the ICAI School of Engineering, assisted by the Acting Admissions Subcommittee which is formed by the Head of Postgraduate Studies and the Director of the Master's Degree.
