Regulated professions

Regulated professions 

LRegulated professions are professions exercise of which requires meeting a special condition which is usually being in possession of a specific academic degree (or having passed an aptitude test or a practicum). They are currently governed by Royal Decree 1,837/2008 and the list includes very different professions. Each profession requires a different type of degree: either vocational training or university studies.

As regards the latter, the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) established that professional competencies can be acquired through an undergraduate degree (technical engineers and technical architects) or through a university Master's degree (engineers and architects).

Thus, UPV offers qualifying undergraduate degrees for the regulated professions of technical engineering and technical architecture, and, starting in the 2014-2015 academic year, will also offer university Master's degrees that qualify students for the regulated professions of engineering and architecture.

Regulated professions requiring a Master's degree 

Certain regulated professions require a higher level of studies. Exercise of these professions thus requires being in possession of a qualifying university Master's degree. The qualifying Master's degrees offered at the Universitat Politècnica de València have been designed on the basis of a specific undergraduate degree of reference, and together (undergraduate degree + Master's degree) they constitute an integrated study programme, as shown in the following table:

Holding an undergraduate degree is a necessary condition to access these Master's degrees. Graduates who are interested in taking a Master's degree should fill in an application which will be evaluated and ranked by the Master's Degree Academic Committee, taking the following factors into account:

  • The average grade for the student's academic record, on a normalised 1 to 10 scale, which has a weight of 40 to 60%.
  • The suitability of the degree of origin for the degree of reference. This suitability is given a grade on a 1 to 10 scale, and has a weight of 40 to 60%.
  • The student's CV, given a grade on a 0 to 10 scale, which has a weight of 0 to 10%.
