Within the framework of the degrees adapted to the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), a number of University Master's degrees have gradually emerged in recent years, sometimes with similar or even coincident themes. These masters can be divided into two groups, those that qualify for the exercise of a particular profession and those that do not have this attribution, because they are masters with a clearly scientific-research orientation or even having a professional nature do not fit any profession Recognized.
This situation forces the student to have to make decisions about their future to the detriment of one or other masters, being that in many occasions there are subjects of interest that are treated by several masters in a complementary way. The Master's Degree in Telecommunication Engineering (MUTE) has many points of agreement with the Master's Degree in Electronic Systems Engineering (MUESE); However, the former qualifies to practice the profession of Telecommunication Engineer, while the latter has a scientific-research or professional orientation in the field of Electronic Engineering. In this specific case a student who wants to acquire the professional skills to practice as a Telecommunication Engineer and also wants a scientific specialization for the completion of the doctorate or a greater professional specialization, should study both masters.
The double degree between the Master's Degree in Telecommunication Engineering (MUTE) and the Master's Degree in Electronic Systems Engineering (MUESE), offers the student an integrated academic path for the completion of the doctorate or for the professional specialization, together with the obtaining of The competences that enable him to exercise the profession of Telecommunication Engineer, all with a temporary and economic cost, for the student, inferior to that which represents the obtaining of both masters in an individualized way.
The student, instead of taking the 120 ECTS of the MUTE master and the 72 ECTS of the MUESE master, has a total of 150 ECTS, representing a saving of 42 ECTS.
The double master's degree consists in the realization of two independent masters, the Master's Degree in Telecommunication Engineering (MUTE) and the Master's Degree in Electronic Systems Engineering (MUESE).
The temporary programming to be able to take both masters in an efficient way, is developed during 2.5 courses or 5 semesters as follows:
- The first course, which occupies the first two semester, coincides completely with the completion of the first course of the MUTE.
- The second course is distributed by semesters as follows:
In the third semester, the students attend the following subjects:
- Of the MUTE: Integration of technologies and systems in telecommunication engineering (33439), Implementation of networks and telecommunication services (33458) and 6 ECTS of the optional subjets or practical in companies.
- Of the MUESE: Product-oriented Electronic Design (33072) and Electronic Power Converters (33074).
In the fourth semester, the students attend the following subjects: Digital Signal Processing in the FPGA (33080), Audiovisual Equipment Electronics (33081), Professional Seminars (33082) and the Master's Thesis of MUESE.
- The 5th semester or last half year, is dedicated only to the completion of the Master's Thesis of the MUTE.
Internships in companies. The double master has the possibility of directly recognizing up to 6 ECTS by means of the practice of companies in the sector of telecommunications or electronic engineering. These practices can be carried out during the second course of the Master.
As the double masters consists in the realization of two independent masters, the student must pass through two admission processes, one for each masters, that are realized in consecutive years.
The first year the student requests admission to the Master's Degree in Telecommunication Engineering (MUTE), which will allow him to take the first course of the MUTE master's degree.
When the first course of the MUTE master is being completed, admission to the Master's Degree in Electronic Systems Engineering (MUESE) is requested, selecting the format option in double degree, which will allow the student, in the second course to continue with the Double master's studies.
It is necessary to be studying the master MUTE, to apply for admission to the master MUESE in double degree format. Although, in both applications for admission to the master, the degree of access will be the degree of degree that has the applicant.
The admission criteria are conditioned by the criteria of the most restrictive masters, in this case the University Master in Telecommunication Engineering because it is an enabling master's degree.
Graduates who come from degrees that enable them to exercise the profession of Telecommunications Technical Engineer.
There are no specialties, although the completion of the double degree involves taking the training course in Digital Electronic Systems of the Master's Degree in Electronic Systems Engineering.
