Dear future EPS student:
If you are reading this, it is probably because you have a passion for Architecture or Engineering, and you wish to practice one of these professions in the future. In the current economic and professional circumstances, you should know that, when you graduate, exercising these professions will mean, in most cases, working with international teams of architects and engineers in projects that will be developed, in many cases, in geographical and cultural areas very different from the Spanish one.
For this reason, it is very important to make sure that the training you are going to receive prepares you adequately for a progressive and irreversible professional internationalisation, and that this training is of the highest quality, in order to compete in the best possible conditions in a professional market that is already global.
In the case of Architecture, this orientation in the training of future architects, who are passionate about their profession, takes the form of a training programme in which students are free to choose which language, Spanish or English, they wish to study (el Grado de Arquitectura or the Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture, respectively). In addition, students who demonstrate to us a minimum knowledge of English, and a very high academic performance, will be able to carry out part of their studies in foreign universities, in an international extension of their studies. In addition, you should know that our Architecture studies have been positively evaluated by the NAAB (National Architectural Accrediting Board of the United States); for more information about our accreditation, follow this link.
Alongside the Bachelor of Architecture, which, as we have said, can be taken entirely in English, and which offers full competencies for the practice of the profession of Architect without the need to take any qualifying postgraduate course (Master's), we offer a new Bachelor of Interior Design, with a pathway specifically designed for architects who wish to complement their studies in this field. In addition, the EPS Architecture Division's own degrees in Digital Fabrication (in collaboration with MIT) and Sustainability and Energy Efficiency (in collaboration with the Green Building Council of Spain) have been added to the offer of the EPS Architecture Division.
With regard to Telecommunications Engineering, we want to place our educational emphasis on achieving a generalist training in the ICT sector that includes, in addition to the technical aspects, a strong orientation towards innovation processes, entrepreneurship and business. This degree is followed by a Master's Degree in Telecommunications Engineering (MUIT: Master's Degree in Telecommunications Engineering).
Since the 2013/2014 academic year, we have been committed to training Biomedical Engineers, engineering professionals oriented towards the application of their own methodologies of analysis and design to the field of biomedicine. We started this endeavour with a Bachelor's Degree, which will be followed by a Master's Degree. As a differential element, we envisage involving students, from the beginning of their studies, in training activities directly related to research, as we believe that these professionals are called to lead applied research in a large part of the biomedical field. Logically, the professional we are thinking of is oriented towards international and globalised markets, so the training programme we have designed is necessarily bilingual.
Since the 2013/2014 academic year, we have also offered a Double Degree in Telecommunication Systems Engineering and Biomedical Engineering. With this unique offer in the Spanish university market, we seek to satisfy students who wish to train professionally, and simultaneously, in the field of ICT and Bioengineering.
Finally, since the 2014/2015 academic year, we have included in our offer a new Degree in Information Systems Engineering, which can be taken simultaneously, at the Montepríncipe Campus, with ADE or with Telecommunications Systems Engineering. Information systems are the technological support for the economic activity of companies, whether they are SMEs or large multinationals. The Information Systems Engineer is in charge of designing these systems. Since the 2015/2016 academic year, this degree can be combined with the Degree in Telecommunication Systems Engineering; with this double degree you will acquire a premium training in the area of ICT, without competition in the market.
I hope to see you soon at the EPS.
