Academic Program of Industrial Engineering via Bachelor in Industrial Technology Engineering

Ingeniería Tecnología industrial
Bachelor 4 years (240 ECTS) + Master 1 year and half (90 ECTS)

This Bachelor + Master program qualifies for the profession of Industrial Engineer.



The PARSI in Industrial Engineering via the Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Technologies allows you to complete the Bachelor’s Degree and Master’s Degree successively. This programme allows you to obtain both degrees and, in its final stage, the qualification of Industrial Engineer, a profile highly demanded by companies and with full employability.

The acronym PARSI refers to the Academic Programmes with Successive Courses in the field of Engineering and which are characterised by having a tutor who accompanies and guides the students throughout the whole process, small groups in all teaching and the possibility of starting the linked Master’s Degree when you have yet to pass a maximum of 30 ECTS credits, which will include the Final Bachelor’s Degree Project and one or more subjects.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to take subjects in Spanish and English, you will be able to carry out an academic mobility thanks to the agreements our University has with Universities around the world and you will be able to carry out curricular internships in the best companies in the sector.

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).

Organization of the Bachelor + Master program

PARSI of Industrial Engineering via Bachelor in Industrial Technology Engineering

UC3M offers the option of taking this degree as part of a Successive Academic Program in the field of Engineering (PARSI). In this way, the degree is linked to its enabling master's degree, without the need to take additional training complements, and with the possibility of starting the master's degree before having completed the subjects of the degree.

PARSI students will have, from the beginning of their studies, the support and guidance of an academic tutor, who will provide general information about the program and, in view of the interests of each student, will offer guidance about the elective subjects, both in the bachelor's and master's, that may best suit their profile.

At the end of the program, students will have obtained both the degree of Graduate in Industrial Technologies Engineering and the Master in Industrial Engineering. The latter degree grants the regulated professional competences of the profession of Industrial Engineer, in accordance with the Ministerial Order CIN/311/2009.

Admission to PARSI

You can apply for admission to PARSI when you pre-register for the undergraduate program. Admission to the program is different from that of the undergraduate program, so the cut-off score will be different.

  • Mobility

    Exchange programs

    The Erasmus program allows UC3M undergraduate and graduate students to study one or more semesters in one of the European universities with which UC3M has agreements or to carry out an Erasmus Placement, that is, an internship in a company in the EU. These exchanges are financially supported thanks to the Erasmus Scholarships provided by the EU and the Spanish Ministry of Education.

    The Non-European Mobility program allows UC3M undergraduate students to spend one or more semesters at one of the international universities with which the university has agreements. In addition, financial support is provided by Banco Santander and UC3M.

    In both cases, the places are offered in a public call for applications and are awarded to students with the best academic record who have passed the language threshold (English, French, German, etc.) required by the partner university.

  • European mobility BACHELOR

  • Non-European mobility BACHELOR

    Non european mobility

  • MASTER Mobility

    European mobility in master's programs

    Through the European Erasmus+ program, students at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid can spend a period of study at a higher education institution in another European country.

    The exchanges will be carried out in two ways

    • European Mobility with recognition of ECTS credits of the Master itself (International academic stay to take courses of the Master).
    • International Complement, once the courses of the Master in which they are enrolled have been completed (International Academic Stay as Complementary Training).

Profile and career opportunities

  • Entry profile

    Entry profile

    The student must have a good previous training in Mathematics and Physics fundamentally. The capacity of observation and analysis, ability and speed for numerical calculation and resolution of quantifiable problems, as well as logical and abstract reasoning are also very important. The ability to establish relationships between the observed reality and the description of it by means of mathematical models is also very convenient.

    Personal attitudes of initiative, ability to cooperate in a team, personal organization of work, ability to work under pressure, leadership, responsibility and interest in the practical application of knowledge to solve real problems are highly valued. Finally, manual skills in the handling of instruments or equipment will be widely used during and after the studies.


    Admission to PARSI is requested during pre-enrollment. PARSI will appear in the list of degrees you can choose; if you are interested in studying Industrial Technologies we suggest that, in your pre-enrollment options, you select both the PARSI code and the Bachelor's degree code.

    Application for the place in the Bachelor's Degree

    Admission to the Master's program will take place in the 4th to the 5th year of PARSI. According to the regulations, you can start the Master even if you have not yet completed all the credits of the Degree, since you can access with up to 30 ECTS credits pending. However, preference in accessing the Master will be given to those who have completed all the credits of the Degree.

  • Graduate profile

    Profile of graduates

    The graduate profile contains the skills that have been typical of engineering degrees related to the industrial field, such as mechanical processes, generation, transport and use of electrical energy, automation and process control, manufacture and use of new materials and components, energy, chemical and other processes, business organization techniques applied to the industrial field, the study of structures, environmental aspects, waste management, all from a multidisciplinary perspective that considers not only each of the specific subjects described, but also their interrelation, together with the organizational and logistical issues that affect the processes. In addition, the degree incorporates a wide range of electives, which will allow students to adapt their curriculum according to their own interests, whether professional or personal.

    At the end of the Bachelor + Master program, graduates will have the professional competencies to perform the profession of Industrial Engineer, in accordance with the regulations published in the Ministerial Order CIN/311/2009.
