1. Pre-registration or application for admission
Pre-registration or application for admission is made through the telematic application of the Polytechnic University of Madrid.
2. Admission Criteria
The Master’s Degree in Biomedical Engineering (MUIB) is aimed at graduates who have completed undergraduate or higher studies (graduate, engineer or graduate) and the entry profile corresponds to some areas of engineering (telecommunications, computer science, industrial, biomedical ) and the physical sciences. If students have a biomedical engineering degree, they will not need to complete training supplements. In the case of the other degrees, the Academic Committee of the Master will specify up to a maximum of 30 ECTS of training complements for each entry profile. The training complements will be subjects of the Degree in Biomedical Engineering and the Degree in Engineering of Telecommunications Technologies and Services of the UPM in the areas of physiology, mechanics, electronics or / and signals and systems. Given that this master’s degree has a very specialized approach, it is considered that students from degrees other than those specified do not meet the minimum requirements for admission.
In the case of different entry profiles, their admission to the Master will be decided by the Postgraduate Academic Committee, taking into account criteria of professional experience, complementary training and original qualifications.
Admission is a mandatory prior procedure and is established in the official regulations that regulate this type of study in Spain (Royal decrees RD1393 / 2007 and RD861 / 2010) and by the Student Selection and Admission procedure (PR 19) of the Center. The access and enrollment regulations are accessible on the UPM Student Regulations website.
Additionally, given that the number of places is limited, there is a procedure for the acceptance of students by the Academic Committee of the Master’s Program that is governed by the following aspects:
|Evaluation criteria||%Scale||Specific comments|
|Academic record of the degree that gives you access to the program and University of origin||60 – 80||The average grade of the same will be valued.|
|Other academic merits||5 – 10||Additional training related to the field of biomedical engineering will be valued.|
|Research experience||5 – 10||Motivation and participation in IB research projects will be valued.|
|Knowledge of the Spanish and English languages||5 – 10||It is a requirement of the University to have a B2 level of English to be admitted to the degree, demonstrable through official accreditation or by having completed a degree with the requirement that graduates have a B2 level of English, as is the case with degrees of the UPM.|
|Positive reports and letters of recommendation||5 – 10||Those that come from professors from the departments responsible for the Program and from other departments or universities will be evaluated.|
More information about the admission procedure on the UPM Master’s degree admission website.
Once admitted, registration must be done at the secretariat of the Higher Technical School of Telecommunications Engineers, responsible for managing the master’s program, and always within the established deadline. The possibility of registering online through the Virtual Polytechnic is also open. More information and enrollment calendar on the UPM master enrollment website.
