This master's degree is among the most entrepreneurial demands and a higher percentage of job placement in all university degrees, with much lower unemployment rates than the average, and excellent short- and medium-term perspectives both at the regional and in the national.

This Master qualifies for the exercise of professional activities according to Order CIN / 311/2009, of February 9, which establishes the requirements for the verification of the official university degrees that qualify for the exercise of the profession of Industrial Engineer.

Justification title

Previous experiences of the university in the delivery of titles of similar characteristics.

Although the proposed degree is new in the ULL, both in the masters and higher engineering formats, since 2002/03, the title of Industrial Technical Engineer Mechanical Specialty has been taught at ETSICI and since 2001/2002 the Engineer degree Industrial Technician Industrial Electronics Specialty. These qualifications have been adapted to the EHEA in the academic year 2010-2011, in which the corresponding degrees have been implemented in Ing. Mechanical and Ing. in Industrial and Automatic Electronics. In addition, the Degree in Ing. Industrial Chemistry, newly created in the ULL. These qualifications allow for the exercise of the profession of Industrial Technical Engineer and will be the grades of which will be nourished mainly the master in Industrial Engineering. In addition, in the ULL have been taught (extinguished in the 2013/14 course) the degree of second cycle of Engineering in Automatic in Industrial and Automatic Electronics, as well as the masters in Ing. Electronics and Ing. Chemistry, which are converted into special areas within the proposed Masters (see section 5.1 et seq.). The conversion of these degrees in the Master of Ing. Industrial is justified in the fact that this master gives the attributions of Ing. And is therefore more attractive to students (as can be seen in the rest of this section), and has a higher demand and a much higher employability forecast, apart from the fact, also very relevant that, according to the new wording given to art. 81.3 b) of the LOMLOU by section 5.2 of art. 6 of RD Law 14/2012, the public prices of this master's degree will be lower than those of master's without attributions. In addition, it allows fusion in a single master with attributions, of several existing masters, optimizing both human and material teaching resources.

Entry and exit profile

Orientation and tutoring

The ULL has an Information and Guidance Service (WIS) to inform, advise and guide students and the university community in general. The WIS has three different areas: an information area (scholarships and grants, university training proposals, procedures, rights and duties, deadlines and procedures), a Psychopedagogical Counseling and a Legal Advice.

In the specific case of the Master, the Academic Director of the Master gives informative talks throughout the first course to discuss novelties and remember their availability for the resolution of any problems related to the degree. The professors in charge of each area of ​​specialization will be responsible for the tutoring of the students who attend the master's degree.

External practices

This master does not contemplate the performance of external practices.

Master's thesis

In the end of the master's work, the student must carry out and then defend an original exercise carried out individually before a university court, consisting of an integral project of Industrial Engineering of a professional nature in which the competences acquired in the teaching are synthesized the three common modules as in the corresponding specialty).

Part of the documentation that students receive will be in English (corresponding to 5% of the teaching load of the TFM). Also, a summary of the TFM must be presented in English along with the memory that is presented for later defense.
