Program description

Master's Degree in Technology and Engineering Management

The master’s degree in Technology and Engineering Management (MEM) is a challenging 1.5-year (90 ECTS credits) professional and academic degree programme offered by the Terrassa School of Industrial, Aerospace and Audiovisual Engineering (ESEIAAT). The objective of the MEM is to develop the knowledge and skills of engineers and scientists in the management of people, projects, resources and organisations in technical environments. The MEM focuses on effective decision making in engineering and technological organisations in today’s competitive and rapidly changing business environment.

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.
