Admission requirements

General 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.

Specific requirements

  • A degree in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Biology or Geology.
  • A degrees in Engineering (Telecommunications, Civil Engineering).
  • A diploma in Engineering (Aeronautical Engineering).
  • A pre-EHEA degree in Aeronautical or Industrial Engineering.
  • Another pre-EHEA engineering degree.
