Presentation of the Degree

The degree in Mechanical Engineering has a general character that will allow the employment of the graduate, industrial technical engineer, in the wide range of activities currently developed by the graduate in Industrial Technical Engineering, specializing in Mechanics. This last degree, which expires with the degrees, began at the EPS in the 1997/98 academic year. They are, therefore, 23 years of experience that guarantee the teaching staff of the EPS. The Degree in Mechanical Engineering gives women access, among others, to university master's degrees in the field of Industrial Engineering, with prior admission by the body responsible for the master's degree, which qualifies them for the profession of Industrial Engineer.

In addition, if you are interested in Mechanical Engineering and salary good students, in the Escuela Politècnica Superior you can also study the Double Degree in Mechanical Engineering and Energy and Sustainability Engineering that begins the academic year 2020-21.

 

Why do you have to study this degree at EPS?

The general objective of the new degree in Mechanical Engineering is to provide adequate training of European profile and general character on the theoretical and technical bases and technologies that enable the exercise of the profession of industrial technical engineer, framed in a capacity for continuous improvement and of knowledge transmission.

From the teaching point of view, it is committed to continuous assessment, active pedagogical methodologies and professional orientation, at the same time as students are introduced to the professional world. A notable advantage is the coordination of the programs of the different subjects, to guarantee a series of basic knowledge and to avoid the duplicity.

Even if they decide to continue their university education, it will be possible to access master's studies. You can enjoy direct access to the Master in Industrial Engineering, which is taught in Lleida.

To implement the Degree in Mechanical Engineering, which is organized in person, the Escuela Politècnica Superior offers:

  • Validations of Higher Degree Training Cycles (CFGS) to the Degree in Mechanical Engineering.

  • Small groups that facilitate the exchange with the teachers and a more careful follow-up of the work done by the student.

  • Continuous evaluation.

  • Block curricular qualification of the subjects corresponding to the same academic year Individualized tutorials.

  • To the EPS each student has a tutor assigned to whom he can address before any question related to his studies. Within the Néstor program of tutorials, mechanisms of attention in the student are established.

  • Incorporation of active methodologies Compulsory supervised internships that allow the employment of graduates (75 annual internship offers).

  • The possibility of carrying out these practices at the international level. Final Degree Project with tutoring and continuous evaluation.

  • The possibility of carrying out the TFG within the company.

Which Industrial Engineering degree can I choose?

The industrial engineering programmes at the Polytechnic School are designed in order to offer flexibility to students to decide which of the 5 degrees in the industial field they want to enrole:

  • Mechanical Engineering (Campus Lleida)
  • Industrial and Automatic Electronic Engineering
  • Energy Engineering and Sustainability
  • Chemical engineering
  • Engineering in Industrial Organization and Logistics.

Students willing to enroll in any of these programmes, need to pre-register for a single common entrance for each of the campuses. Thus, the student can choose which of the two campuses he will attend  during the first two years, and can change his campus during the 3rd and 4th year, if he wishes (depending on the degree he wants to study). University pre-registration tickets are:

  • On the Lleida campus: "Energy and Sustainability Engineering / Engineering in Industrial and Automatic Electronics / Mechanical Engineering (Agrupación) (Lleida)"
  • On the Igualada campus: "Chemical Engineering / Engineering in Industrial Organization and Logistics (Grouping) (Igualada)"

Hence, the common core of industrial engineering gives students more time to decide which degree they want to pursue. This decision is postponed until the 3rd year, when the student is well acquainted with the different branches of the industrial field.

Double international degrees

Double Degree in Mechanical Engineering & Energy and Environmental Engineering

The Double Degree in Mechanical Engineering & Energy and Environmental Engineering with the Finnish university of Novia University of Applied Sciences (Novia UAS) was born with the desire to enable students of both universities to achieve this second degree by strengthening and complementing their academic profile and professionalism in the world of energy and the environment (for UdL students going to Finland) enabling them to face their future job challenges with greater guarantees of success, as well as consolidating English, which is becoming a language of daily use both in his daily life as an academic.

Since the double degree is conveyed through the mobility processes offered by the UdL, it is not until the 3rd year of the Degree in Industrial and Automatic Electronic Engineering that students can access this double degree (and accredit the B2 level of English required), which offers the opportunity to study at least one academic year (10 months or 2 semesters) at the other university and receive, with the same duration as the UdL Degree, also the degree from the other institution.

Novia UAS is a university campus scattered like the UdL distributed in different cities in the western part of Finland. Campus Vasa is located in the city of Vaasa, a beautiful city on the west coast of Finland next to an archipelago considered a world heritage site. This campus offers studies on technology, business administration, health and wellness.

The languages ​​spoken are Finnish and Swedish, which despite being the second official language in Finland, spoken by 5% of the population, is the main language of instruction for brides since 25% of the population of Finland Vaasa speaks it.

With 13,000 students, the city is perfectly suited to students, especially engineering since it is the largest energy group in Scandinavia, with an industry that exports worth millions of thousands of euros a year.

Novia UAS is one of the founders of the Technobothnia research center. It reinforces the region's claim to be an important center of technical knowledge. The unique collaboration between three different universities guarantees a well-equipped and versatile laboratory unit. The center creates is a good place to cultivate for new and innovative forms of collaboration with clear benefits, not only for the staff and students of Novia, but also for industry and the economy.
