Period of study: September - December (lectures + assessment)
This is our integrated Autumn Semester in Engineering. However, students can select modules for our regular offer in English, according to their interests. Notice that there may be timetable overlaps between the integrated semester modules and the regular ones; besides, regular modules may have final exams in January.
Digital Fabrication Technologies
This course combines open source and/or commercially available software with rapid prototyping equipment such as laser cutter, 3D printers, vinyl cutter and milling machines. Students will fabricate different assignments during the semester learning how to do the fabrication on their own and sharing the experience with others.
In this concept, students will "create rather than consume technology" while "locally design and fabricate solutions" removing barriers such as access to equipment, access to expertise or even access to knowhow.
Intelligent Control Systems with LabView (6 ECTS)
Graduates must acquire, between others, the ability to become familiar with the use of control techniques and technologies of industrial process automation. LabVIEW is currently a standard tool in the industry for design and implementation of industrial control, especially in the areas of control, instrumentation and electronics. This course focuses on providing the students with sufficient theoretical, practical, and technological knowledge to address the planning and proposal of industrial control solutions. The course also uses LabVIEW as a design and implementation tool deepening in the development of industrial control applications. These aspects form one of the main working environments for the engineer.
Thermodynamics (6 ECTS)
Industrial application engineers need a solid knowledge in Thermodynamics regarding that multiple industrial developments are based on it. Thermodynamics are the base of the study of all the thermal machines as combustion engines, both gas and vapor turbines, cooling machines, air conditioning systems... The thermodynamic study of all these devices allows the analysis of their working parameters such as power, dissipated heat, efficiency.
Management Skills for Engineers (6 ECTS)
Individual performance is the key driver to obtain organisational and business outcomes. Engineers are often poorly trained to carry out their managerial duties. Although they have some excellent preparation in technical and operational functions, they have a clear gap when they must cover activities requiring management competences .Customers, workers, suppliers, shareholders and citizens ask for organisations structured by focus teams and individuals with a strong competence development. The current programme is based in management practice.
Technological Innovation and Entrepeneurship (6 ECTS)
Innovation is a key element in any successful company. Although the skills to foresee improving opportunities can rest on any employees abilities, usually this task lies on the shoulders of its R&D engineers. By having deep knowledge in the company product technologies, engineers create and engender new ideas which increase business opportunities.
Entrepreneurship is the ability to bring these innovative ideas into new real successful products, by means of deeply assessing multidisciplinary aspects surrounding the new idea, well before becoming a real product. Furthermore, it is an inevitable step for any successful product in the market. This competence helps innovating and having great ideas while teaches keeping the feet on the ground and be realistic.
Methodology and creativity
Methodology and creativity are two essential elements for design. On one hand, a designer must be able to plan and structure a suitable design process that ensures accomplishing the final goal. On the other hand, creativity and existing related tools and methods are key to identify and generate innovative ideas and concepts that industrial design offers.
This course of the Industrial Design Engineering degree develops the competence "CE-DI-08. Apply design methodologies and creativity techniques to develop ideas within the design process" that belongs to the module "Compulsory academic training in industrial design".
Professionals in this field can develop projects related to:
- Planning and structuring a design process.
- The use and knowledge of methodologies and creativity tools.
- The design and development of innovative products blending methodological processes and creativity techniques.
This course studies existing project-oriented methodologies, their evolution and development and the structuring of the design process. Furthermore, the course digs into the recognition of diverse tools and techniques that can foster creativity within the structured design process and the study of different stages, milestones and tools that are relevant for each of them, such as: CUT analysis (Communication-Use-Technology) or idea selection and rating techniques. Finally, the competences acquired in this course are applied in practice via exercises and projects. Moreover, according to the map of generic competences of this degree, this course will develop the generic competence "TIME MANAGEMENT".
Graduates in Computer Engineering must be able to design and implement telematics services and applications, applying communication protocols design techniques, network topologies and distributed application architectures. The main contribution of the subject of Telematics to the degree in Computer Engineeting is the ability to conceptualize and develop systems and centralized or decentralized computer architectures, integrating hardware, software and networking capabilities. In particular, this subject focuses on the design and operation of the TCP/IP Internet protocol stack and its flexibility for designing different types of telematics services.
Students will deepen their knowledge about the contents introduced in other modules, by means of a supervised independent study activity. The coursework will be supervised and graded by the same instructor of the corresponding module.
Circuits (6 ECTS)
The main objective is to give the student a wide knowledge of electric circuits. That is, once passed this subject, the student will identify and apply different methods for the resolution of electric circuits, and will apply the related terminology and formulation.
One of the key roles of graduates in Computing is the design and implementation of software solutions. If we analyse the life cycle of a software system, the second fundamental step is the design of the product to be built. In this course, students acquire the skills necessary for the design of distributed object-oriented software solutions, using UML as modeling notation and applying well-known design patterns, as well as heuristics and best practices.
Therefore, this subject's contribution to the professional profile (from a competence perspective) is related to problem solving skills and system, component and application design, using a systemic approach (as well as creative and innovative), starting from existing requirements and taking into consideration different criteria for the evaluation of alternative solutions.
Statistics belongs to a group of subjects focused on providing the student with a solid scientific base for the study of the other subjects of the grade. The knowledge and skills achieved are a core for engineering professionals, in order to extract information from large amount of data and analyse it. Statistics subject provides powerful tools in main engineering areas for improving quality in services or products and also for modelling phenomena or physical behaviours.It also helps to understand stochastic phenomena and predict their behaviour more efficiently
Electrotechnics is a basic subject, whose main objective is to give the student a wide knowledge of electric circuits. That is, once passed this subject, the student will identify and apply different methods for the resolution of electric circuits, and will apply the related terminology and formulation.
