Specific admission requirements

As stipulated in Ministerial Order CIN/309/2009, dated 9 February, which establishes the requirements for the verification of official university degrees that license graduates to practise the profession of Ingeniero de Caminos, Canales y Puertos (Civil Engineering), the conditions of access to the Master’s degree are established as follows:
– Access to this Master’s degree programme is granted to those in possession of the competencies set out in Section 3 of Ministerial Order which establishes the requirements for the verification of official university degrees that license graduates to practise the profession of Ingeniero Técnico de Obras Públicas, and to those whose training is in line with Section 5 of the above mentioned Order.
– Access to the Master’s programme will also be permitted to holders of undergraduate degrees, having passed the basic training module and the module common to the specialisation in question. The degree may not cover a complete set of subjects of the specific technology module, provided that it does account for 48 credits relating to the total sets of subjects offered in that module within an undergraduate degree programme that licenses graduates to practise the profession of Ingeniero Técnico de Obras Públicas, in accordance with the aforementioned Ministerial Order.
– Finally, access to this Master’s degree programme is granted to holders of any other Grado (Bachelor’s Degree), subject to complementary training requirements that may be stipulated in such cases.
