The UC3M Double Bachelor’s Degree in Data Science and Engineering and Telecommunications Technologies is geared toward students interested in data science and artificial intelligence with their accompanying technologies. It encompasses different programming languages and environments, digital business models, cybersecurity for data and telecommunications, as well as cloud solutions for computing and storage, among others.

This study program provides the student with a broad spectrum of applications in the area of data analysis and secure storage, of vital importance in the 21st century.    
Both degree programs are based on two instrumental disciplines, mathematics and computer science, and share common roots in the statistical treatment of information. 

These studies, taught in a bilingual format, offer specialized laboratories for practicums, carried out with small-sized groups, together with the possibility of professional internships in leading companies in the sector. 

This Double Degree will be taught for this first time in academic year 2020-2021. 

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).

Mobility

  • 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.

Study in English

Bilingual studies

This degree courses in English and Spanish. In the courses taught in English there aren't groups in Spanish, so there isn't possibility to choose the language in which you will carry out your studies. You must take into mind that:

  • In groups in English, all works (classes, drills, exercises, tests, etc.) will be conducted in English.
  • Along the first year, it must be established an English B2 level, performing a test, providing one of the supported official certificates or any way determined by the university. In the first weeks of the course will inform students how they can prove their level.
  • After completing the studies, in your DS will appear a mention of bilingual studies.
