Details for Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros Industriales

Program description

The Universidad Politécnica de Madrid was founded in 1971 by the combination of several technical universities as well as faculties of the former university of Madrid. However, the origins of its single entities date back till the 17th century.

During the Double Degree program in cooperation with Universidad Politécnica de Madrid students have the opportunity to acquire the Spanish degree “Master of Ingenierià Industrial” in addition to their Masters’ degree from TU Darmstadt. The regular period of study for the former amounts to 6 years which consist of 4 years for the Bachelor/Grado degree and 2 years for the Master’s degree.

Courses at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid are taught in Spanish, which is why we highly recommend fluency in Spanish.

Process of Studies

The regular period of study for a Double Degree in cooperation with the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid amounts to twelve semesters. Therefore only two more semesters in comparison to a regular Master's degree are needed.

The exchange starts in the first semester (winter term) if the Master’s studies. Students of the Double Degree program spend the first 6 years of their studies at TU Darmstadt. Afterwards students study for 3 semesters at UPM and finalize their studies the last 3 semesters at TU Darmstadt.

Completing an internship in Spain is mandatory and the Master’s Thesis has to be written at TU Darmstadt.

Requirements & Application

Excellent course achievement is an important requirement for Double Degree applicants. Furthermore strong commitment to studies and the willingness to deliver more than in other exchange programs is expected. For the Double Degree program at UPM good language skills in Spanish (language level of B1 e.g. Portuguese UNICERT I) is particularly required.

The application period starts one year before the planned mobility. Therefore, students that want to apply for winter term 2016/17 or summer term 2017 should apply by the end of 2015. Further information can be found on the website of the Department for Law and Economics.
