Organization of the Bachelor + Master Program

PBachelor in Telecommunication Technologies Engineering + Master in Telecommunication 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 degree, that may best suit their profile.

At the end of the program, students will have obtained both the degree of Graduate in Engineering in Telecommunication Technologies and the Master in Telecommunication Engineering. The latter degree grants the regulated professional competences of the profession of Telecommunication Engineer, in accordance with the Ministerial Order of the Spanish Government. CIN/355/2009.

Admision 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.


Real Decreto 822/2021,of September 28, which establishes the organization of university education and the procedure for quality assurance.

  • Mobility

    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.
