    The fourth industrial revolution brings many challenges to companies in most sectors and allows new business models that until now were not possible. The Connected Industry 4.0 (CI4.0) is marked by a deep digitization of society and combines intelligent production technologies with high-speed communications that allow real-time access to big data and services.

    This official Master is aimed at training students interested in working in companies that are accomplishing the transition to CI4.0 in a multidisciplinary way. It is necessary to combine the knowledge of industrial engineering (automation, robotics, mechanics) and telecommunications engineering (5G, industrial protocols, cybersecurity) with other disciplines such as industrial organization and Big Data analysis. Without forgetting the system integration part.

    The Master, which is taught entirely in English, is professionally focused in multinational environments. It will allow students to learn the fundamental technologies associated with CI4.0, taught by teachers from five areas of knowledge. In addition, the most innovative applications will be analyzed by industry experts. Internships will be offered in the main companies in the sector, as well as scholarships for tuition.

    It is a Master's degree with official recognition, in a public university of maximum prestige and at public prices.

      REQUIREMENTS

      The requirements for access to the Master are as follows:

      • Bachelor's or Master's degrees from the branches of Industrial Engineering and Telecommunications Engineering (or the old equivalent titles of Higher Engineering), may be admitted without requirement of specific professional experience in the Industrial Engineering or Telecommunication sector.
      • Degree holders from the branches of Aeronautical Engineering, Naval Engineering or Computer Engineering (or the old equivalent titles of Higher Engineering), may be admitted if they have a minimum of two years of professional experience in the Industrial or Telecommunication sector.
      • Graduates in non-engineering degrees, but considered related, such as Physics and Mathematics, may be admitted if they have a minimum of five years of professional experience in the Industrial or Telecommunication sector.

      ADMISSION CRITERIA

      Admission will be decided by the Academic Committees of the Master. If necessary, the applicant can be called for a personal interview.

      La selección de candidatos se hará sobre la base de los siguientes criterios:

      Applications will be considered based on the following criteria:

      ADMISSION CRITERIA %
      Academic record of access studies 50%
      Level of knowledge of other languages higher than the minimum required * 10%
      Professional experience 20%

      Other 10%

      * Minimum Level of English required: B2.

      STUDENT PROFILE

      Regarding the entry profile, and given that the Master's degree is technology-oriented, it will focus on Engineers and Graduates in different Engineering, mainly from the branch of the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers). But also more mechanical profiles are contemplated and even of engineers in industrial organization.

      There are two groups of students:

      1. 1) students from Spanish (or foreign) universities, and particularly from Madrid, who: a) have completed degrees in the Industrial Engineering branch and have a lack of communication technologies and data analysis; and b) students who have completed degrees in the branch of Telecommunications Engineering and that have deficiencies in industrial technologies and data analysis.
      2. 2) professionals related to the industrial and service sectors who need to update their knowledge regarding the implementation of the connected Industry 4.0.

      Language requirements

      Check the language requirements of the generic language required to study for a Master at UC3M, depending on whether it is in Spanish, English or bilingual.

      students with foreign university degrees

      Once admitted to the Master, students with university degrees issued by a higher education institution belonging to an educational system outside the EEES, must provide, for enrollment, the diploma, legalized by diplomatic procedures or “The Hague Convention Apostille”. They must also submit the transcript of records, with the grade point average, duly legalized.

      More information about Legalization of Documents.
