Program description

Master's Degree in Innovation and Research in Informatics

Informatics has become a major driving force in many scientific and technological fields. In fact, current socioeconomic progress cannot be understood without considering access to and exchange of information between people and machines and between systems and institutions. There is a growing need for professionals who have strong drive, talent and solid training as provided by the master's degree in Innovation and Research in Informatics. It is designed to provide a solid background in different aspects of research in the fields of advanced computing, computer graphics and virtual reality, computer networks and distributed systems, high-performance computing and service engineering.

Admission requirements

  • An official Spanish university qualification or an official university qualification issued by a university in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) that qualifies the holder for admission to a master's degree.
  • A qualification issued by a university in a country that is not in the EHEA. If the qualification has not been homologated, the UPC will verify that the course of study corresponds to a level of education equivalent to an official Spanish university degree and that the qualification obtained would provide admission to a master’s degree in the country in which it was awarded. This access route in no way implies the homologation of the qualification or its recognition for any purpose other than admission to the master's degree. The master's degree will, however, be fully and legally valid.

In addition to these general access requirements, which apply to all master's degree courses, specific admission requirements may be set for each programme.
