Spring Semester (February - June)
This is our integrated Spring Semester on Project Development. However, students can select modules from our regular offer in English (visit our BSc academic offer here) , and combine themas they wish (notice that there may be timetable overlaps).
Project Management - Technical Office (6 ECTS)
The subject of Technical Office specifically addresses the practical learning of team participation in an industrial project in the phases of analysis, specification, planning and budgeting.
Ethics for Engineers (6 ECTS)
Student's education in the business world needs to incorporate the ethical dimension that affects both the individual in their professional performance and the company as an organization. For this purpose it is important for the student to be knowledgeable about the major ethical systems that have marked human thought and are still applicable in our culture. Also required is a deep study of the ethical dimensions of the company's activity, thus enabling the student to analyze issues incorporating justice as an unavoidable critical instance.
Supervised Project (12,18,24,30 ECTS)
The project gives the student the opportunity to consolidate previously acquired skills and knowledge and to demonstrate their ability to acquire new knowledge in solving a problem.
It is also important for developing the ability to communicate ideas effectively. Planning and organisation of time is essential since the project can be a substantial part of the semester workload.
Interaction and Multimedia (6 ECTS)
Any graduate in Information and Communication Technology should be prepared to design and develop software applications. Many of them are interactive, intended to establish a dialog with the user. In order to ensure that the application adapts to user needs, it is mandatory for the designer to be familiar with human computer interaction issues. This course contributes to the graduate profile by providing the tools to develop computer applications that adapt to the characteristics and limitations of the users. In addition to the above, it is more and more common for these applications to include text and images, but also audio, video and animations. These multimedia applications put forward specific challenges, such as data compression and synchronization.
Software Requirements (6 ECTS)
One of the main tasks of graduates in Computing Engineering is the development of tools or software solutions. If the life cycle of a software system development process is analysed, the first step will always be the definition of what this system /tool is supposed to be; those who better know what they want are the system stakeholders, those who are affected by the prospective system. In this subject, students will gain the needed competences for the definition and modelling of a system in an organized and systematic way, as well as the techniques for gathering the required information from the stakeholders.
Software Process and Quality (6 ECTS)
The aim of this subject is that students learn to successfully accomplish, in a productive and high quality manner, a software development process, encompassing all the development phases (software requirements, design, tests, deployment and maintenance), applying an agile methodology and using the set of support tools which help them in code generation, version and error control, documentation, tests and quality assurance.
Intelligent Systems (6 ECTS)
The main contribution of this subject is in problem solving and application design according to given requirements and applying the specified criteria of effectiveness, efficiency cost and benefit. In particular, the course on Intelligent Systems places especial emphasis on solving difficult problems, many of them NP-complete, by means of designing and using heuristics for artificial intelligence algorithms, and by developing knowledge based systems.
Applied Mechanics (6 ECTS)
In this subject the basic principles of strength of materials and mechanisms are studied. On one hand, strength of materials studies the loads that a structural system supports, in order to check the correct behavior on the strain and possible fractures in that structure. On the other hand, mechanisms are basic for the correct work of machines, that transmit forces and movement, that is, power (e.g. the engine of a car) to the link consuming that power (e.g. the wheels in the car).
A Critical Approach to Social Issues (6 ECTS)
The course aims to promote reflection on issues of our global world in the perspective of training the whole person. From different approaches of problems in economic, political, cultural and social areas we look for the formulation of critical/ethical criteria to guide decisions on matters which affect society.
Ethical Challenges in the Global World (6 ECTS)
This subject tries to make the student reflect critically on the global world in which we live, and on the economic, political, cultural, religious and ecological consequences derived from the globalization process. All this aims to help the student to create an awareness of the ethical challenges which appear in this process, as well as to know the different analyses and positions surrounding these challenges, so that students will be able to bring together their own meaning and to advance convincing suitable arguments.
Control Systems (6 ECTS)
The engineers of industrial area must acquire, among others, the ability to use automation techniques and control of industrial processes that allow them to properly perform the functions of operation and maintenance of automated facilities and the proposal of solutions for the automation and control of small and medium installations.
Thermal Engineering (6 ECTS)
One of competences of the Industrial Technology graduates is to esign and analyze thermal and hydraulic machines and heat exchange systems. For this reason, this subject studies methods for heat exchange system calculations, presents different models to analyze in terms of thermodynamics both rotating and positive reciprocating thermal machines and develops different constructive aspects of these machines.
Students are welcome to apply for a position to develop their bachelor/master thesis/ project or as interns at our research center, DeustoTech. Download a general overview of the project topics.

Students interested in applying for a bachelor/master thesis/ project must submit their CV, transcript of records and a motivation letter (indicating the area of interest for their project) as part of their mobility application.
Admission Requirements and Application
Students must contact the International Relations Office of their home university and find out whether there is an exchange agreement with Deusto. If this is the case, their exchange coordinator must send a nomination for the exchange to Deusto.
Once accepted, the student will receive an email instructing how to proceed. Students must submit their CV, transcript of records and a motivation letter (indicating the area of interest for their project) as part of their application.
