Dual Bachelor in Computer Science and Engineering and Business Administration

Informatica Ade
5 and a half years (390 ECTS credits)

The Bachelor's degree in Computer Science is accredited by EURACE, and the Bachelor's degree in Business Administration by AACSB

From 2020/21, this Double Bachelor is taught in Colmenarejo (with the Mention in Computing), or in the Campus of Leganés and Getafe in alternate dates (with the Mention in Information Systems).



The Dual Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Engineering and Business Administration is designed for students who wish to receive a multi-faceted and competitive education within the technology sector.

Students will acquire the scientific and technical knowledge necessary to acquire, represent, handle and transmit information via computers. They will also receive a rigorous, quality education within the areas of business and public organizations, at both the national and international levels. At the same time, they will hone skills that are indispensable for problem solving in their future professional careers.

These studies include all the content that is taught in both degree programs separately. At the end of the degree, students will receive two degrees, one in Computer Engineering, and another in Business Administration, with the professional advantages that this entails.

Employability and profesional internships

UC3M has agreements with over 3000 companies and institutions in which students can undertake internships and access job openings.

A total of 93.4 % of graduates from this University enter the job market the first year after finishing their studies, according to the 2019 XXIV Estudio de Inserción Profesional (Professional Placement Study).

  • Exchange programs

    Exchange programs

    The Erasmus programme permits UC3M first degree and post graduate students to spend one or several terms at one of the European universities with which UC3M has special agreements or take up an Erasmus Placement, that is a work placement or internship at an EU company. These exchanges are funded with Erasmus Grants which are provided by the EU and the Spanish Ministry of Education.

    The non-european mobility program enables UC3M degree students to study one or several terms in one of the international universities with which the university has special agreements. It also has funding from the Banco Santander and the UC3M.

    These places are offered in a public competition and are awarded to students with the best academic record and who have passed the language threshold  (English, French, German etc..) requested by the university of destination.

    Graduated profile

    The dual degree in Informatics Engineering and Business Administration gives students the following broad profile.

    Informatics Engineers from Universidad Carlos III of Madrid will be professionals with a complete education in all the fundamental fields of Information Technology. Their training will position them as professionals with a general profile that responds, due to their capabilities and solid education, to the expectations of the professional world, not only when they enter a company or public administration for the first time, but also in the future, since they will be prepared to become part of field as changing as Information Technology.

    In terms of specialization, graduates can, in part, define their own curriculum through the choice of electives. Graduates can focus their curriculum in three areas: information systems development, applications and distributed systems and artificial intelligence.

    In addition to this purely technical education, graduates will have received training in communication skills, humanities and languages, which will strengthen their ability to compete in areas of personal communication, efficiency in transmitting their knowledge and ease in forming part of national and international teams.

    After receiving the education for this degree, the graduate will be able to work in any company in the sector. Some of the most professionalized fields within this sector are: computing centers, research and teaching centers, hardware and software companies, financial, telecommunications, technology, security entities and IT consulting companies. Within these public and private entities, the graduate will be able to carry out jobs such as:

    • IT department manager.
    • IT project manager.

    General skills in Business Administration

    The purpose of this degree qualification is for students to acquire the minimum general and specific skills and competences that they need in their studies in order to obtain their degree. In addition, the aforementioned Art. 3 contains details of the minimum competences required, however referring to Art. 3.5 of RD 1393/2007, and the attitudes students should adopt in applying these skills and competence.

    Bloom's Taxonomy is the theoretical structure chosen to explain the fundamental competences required to educate students in this qualification. This theoretical framework not only defines the competence required, but classifies the learning objectives, based on the students' intellectual development. As in the case of any generic classification, this enables a detailed categorisation of a greater number of specifics which in our case result in the inclusion of an increased number of skills. However, in order to identify the skills and abilities required according to the Royal Decree  and also those valued by Universidad Carlos III,  an asterisk has been added to the previous section along with the following summary:

    1. Art. 3.1 of Appendix I of RD 1393/2007 refers to the requisite attitude that  students should demonstrate when applying any skill or competence and these have been considered  specifically as follows:

    • An attitude of respect to fundamental rights and equal gender rights.
    • An attitude promoting Human Rights, principles of universal accessibility and equal opportunities.
    • An attitude of non-discrimination and universal accessibility of disabled persons.
    • Acting in accordance with the values proper to a culture of peace and democratic values.

    2. Art. 3.2 of Appendix I of RD 1393/2007 requires 5 skills essential for the qualifications which we have classified as:

    • Knowledge:
    1. Students have demonstrated that they possess and understand information and knowledge in an area that also includes some aspects implying familiarity with the latest developments in their field of study.
    2. Students know how to apply that knowledge to their work or professional vocation and possess the skills usually demonstrated by elaborating on and defending their arguments, and solving problems in their area of study;
    • Skills:
    1. Students are able to compile and interpret relevant information for issuing opinions, including a reflection on relevant themes of a social, scientific or ethical nature.
    2. Students are able to transmit information, ideas, problems and solutions to both a specialised and non-specialist public;
    3. Students have developed those learning skills required to undertake further studies with a considerable degree of autonomy.

    Summarising  and specifying the ultimate goals of our qualification, these would be:

    • Identifying and undertaking business initiatives
    • Managing and administering companies or other public or private institutions.
    • Integrating in any functional area of a business.
    • Resolving management and administration problems
    • Performing advisory and business consulting tasks.
