UC3M presents its academic degree offering at AULA

March 1st to March 5th at IFEMA


Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) is presenting its offer of bachelor’s and graduate degrees on the occasion of Education Week, which will be held from March 1st to March 5th at IFEMA. This fair unites over 130,000 students, parents, professors, counselors, school principals and education professionals.

Bachelor degrees

UC3M is presenting its bachelor’s degrees at AULA 2017 (“International Student Educational Opportunities Exhibition”). UC3M has one of the largest selections of bilingual studies among Spanish universities: over 60% of its degree courses can be pursued in English or a bilingual option. In addition to the professional advantages this entails, studying a degree in English allows Spanish students to mix with students from other countries (more than 4,300 last academic year).

Furthermore, UC3M students can request to do a part of their studies in exchange programs at more than 500 universities in 60 countries. In fact, more than 40% of UC3M graduates have studied abroad. According to the latest edition of the CRUE (Council to Review Undergraduate Education) report, “Spanish Universities in Numbers,” UC3M ranks first in percentage of bachelor’s degree students with international mobility under the umbrella of the Erasmus+ program.

Eighty-nine point three percent (89.3%) of UC3M graduates found a job in the first year after graduation, and in posts related to their studies, according to the 12th Study on Professional Integration. Moreover, the University has agreements with more than 6,000 companies and institutes so that its students can carry out undergraduate internships and take advantage of their job opportunities. According to the Global Employability Rankings, UC3M ranks among the best 150 universities in the world in the employability of its graduates.

In addition to its 29 bachelor’s degrees and 11 dual degrees, since last year, the University has offered a new kind of education that is flexible and adaptable: the UC3M Open Degrees. There are two such programs: one in Social Sciences and Humanities and one in Engineering, and are designed for students who have not yet decided which degree program to study. In this regard, students have the chance to engage with subjects from different fields of knowledge so that they can decide which path to follow at university. Accordingly, they can choose from among a wide range of subjects (core and elective) for two years, and then select their degree program in their third year.

UC3M is also presenting its new Bachelor’s degree in Information and Digital Content Management, a program that includes subjects related to statistical data analysis, information architecture, databases, web positioning and metric techniques, among others.

Graduate degree offering

At the International Exhibition for Graduate Degrees and Continuing Education, which will be held from March 2nd to March 4th at IFEMA, UC3M will also present four new Master’s degrees for next academic year: International Law, Administrative Management, Photonic Engineering and Civil Liability. UC3M is also launching nine new special degrees: a Master’s in Training Teachers of Spanish as a Foreign Language (on-line); Specialist in Public Affairs and Lobbying; Specialist in Banking Law and Financial Regulation; Specialist in Competition Law; Specialist in Corporate Law; Specialist in Energy Law; Specialist in Transport Law and the Postal Sector; Specialist in Labor Litigation Practice; and Expert in Library Cataloging and Normalization.

UC3M has a total of 60 official Master’s degrees (15 in Law, six in Economics and Political Science, eight in Business, nine in Humanities and Communication, 22 in Engineering and Basic Sciences) and 45 UC3M-accredited programs. Nearly 15% of the degree courses are taught in this format and another 20% are taught in English.

Complementary activities

In this forum, UC3M is also organizing the AULA-Robotics workshop on March 1st and March 2nd. The workshop will give participants an entertaining first incursion into the world of robotics. To this end, four workshops on micro robotics will be offered each day. The sessions, which last 45 minutes, will take place from 10:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and 20 students can attend each session after registering in the same place where the workshops will be held. The workshops, organized by professors from the UC3M Department of Systems Engineering and Automation with the collaboration of CREA Robótica Educativa, a University spin-off, targets students in their final three years of high school, and require no previous knowledge of robotics or programming. Participants will learn how to control the motors of a small mobile robot via the Arduino control board with basic movement commands.

UC3M mission and goals

The mission of UC3M is to contribute to the improvement of society through advanced research and quality teaching, according to rigorous international criteria, as established in its Strategic Plan 2016-2022. With this, the University aspires to excellence in all of its activities, with the goal of becoming one of the best universities in Europe.  UC3M is included in the QS World University Rankings of the 50 best universities under 50 years old.

UC3M recently obtained accreditation from the AACSB, an international organization that recognizes the best schools in the world for teaching quality at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and for research in the areas of business administration, accounting, finance and marketing. The AACSB accreditation is the distinguishing mark of excellence in business education and has been earned by fewer than five percent of business administration programs around the world. Only a few of the best Spanish business schools (all private) have this distinction. UC3M was the first public Spanish university to obtain this accreditation, through its Department of Business Administration.

In the branch of engineering, last year the UC3M increased the number of degrees that have the most prestigious international engineering accreditation in Europe, EUR-ACE: nine bachelor’s degrees and one Master’s degree have this certification, which is awarded by the European Network for Accreditation of Engineering Education (ENAEE).  Its goal is to identify high-quality engineering studies programs in and outside of Europe, facilitating academic and professional mobility. Accordingly, students from the UC3M School of Engineering benefit from the chance to apply to the best job offers within and outside of Spain.
