The program combines the Bachelor's Degree in Electromechanical Engineering (which enables the graduate students to work as “Ingeniero Técnico Industrial” according to the Spanish rules) and the Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering. Students who complete the full programme can register with the ICAI's National Engineers Association and work in the legally regulated profession of Industrial Engineering. Students who complete it can register with the ICAI's National Engineers Association and work in the legally regulated profession of Industrial Engineering.

The total duration of the studies is six years, the first four connected formally with the Bachelor's and Diploma studies, and the last two with the Master's Degree. All students on the program who obtain the minimum performance required by the academic regulations will have a guaranteed place on the Master's Degree.

Comprehensive training and internationalization are two of the program's distinctive characteristics. Our students complete their studies with the Diploma in Professional Skills and the Diploma in Professional Skills and the Diploma in Communicative Skills and the Foreign Languages Studies. Also, students who fulfill the requirements set out in the academic regulations can pursue part of their studies abroad.

In addition to the Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering, our students will have the opportunity to study a double degree taking on another Comillas MA, or one from a foreign university with which Comillas has established a double-degree partnership. The full offer is as follows:

  • Official Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering (MII)
  • Official Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering and MBA (MII-MBA)
  • Official Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering and Master's Degree in the Electric Power Industry (MII-MEPI)
  • Official Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering and Official Master's Degree in Railway Systems (MII-MSF)
  • Official Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering and Master's Degree in Research in Engineering Systems Modeling (MII-MRE)
  • Official Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering and a Master's Degree from a Foreign University (see double degree)

Candidates can apply for admission to the Program with the International Path option. Those admitted to this option will have a premium when choosing international exchange destinations and preference for accessing double degree programs with foreign universities.
