    IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT – ACADEMIC YEAR 2021/22

    This master program is planned to be taught On- Campus, in the academic year 2021/22.
    In the event that capacity limitations persist in the classrooms at the beginning of the course due to risks derived from the COVID-19 pandemic, students must follow the sessions that are determined synchronously online. The master program will set the most appropriate shift system, always ensuring the maximum presence of all its students.
    It is recommended to have a portable computer equipment for the follow-up of those training activities that are determined. This equipment is essential for carrying out practices in virtual environments in university classrooms that do not have computer stations.
    International students who prove difficulties or delays in obtaining their visas and entering Spain, may request remote teaching until they may join the classes on-campus.

    It is a Professional Master as it enables to practice the profession of Superior Technician in Occupational Risk Prevention.

    You will pursue the 3 Prevention specialties (Workplace Safety, Occupational Health and Ergonomics and Applied Psychosociology) during the same academic year. And all of these with guaranteed professional working practices.

    The teachers of the Master (responsible for prevention of prominent companies, Labor Inspectors, Technicians of the Institute of Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (INSSBT)) are specialists in specific matters (noise, explosive atmospheres, confined spaces, electrical risk, disorders musculoskeletal, workplace harassment, stress, design of jobs, among others).

    In-person classes are dynamic and include multi-disciplinary teams. The teaching method is based on a combination of theoretical classes with workshops and practical cases, and because the student profile is diverse (engineers, psychologists, physicians, graduates in law, labour relations, etc.), you will form a part of a multi-disciplinary work team.
