Automatic control is everywhere, usually embedded in devices and applications, therefore it is very obvious when a failure occurs. Good design - whether it is the flight control system of an aircraft, the production control system in a tile plant, the stabilisation of a vehicle in adverse conditions or the monitoring system of a robotic surgical assistant, to name a few representative applications - provides operational safety, high dynamic and static performance and, ultimately, an overall benefit from a variety of perspectives: energy savings, sustainable development, reduced pollution, safety, etc.

The implementation of control systems is based on real-time, embedded and miniaturised computer systems, with the current trend towards autonomy and reduced use of resources. The use of robots and handling equipment, not only in the automotive industry but also in many other industries, such as surgery or remote sensing, requires specific training in automation, robotics, computer vision and industrial computing.


The main objective of these Master's studies is to train specialists in these subjects so that they are capable of dealing with the design, implementation, operation and maintenance of automatic systems for the supervision, control, handling and management of production processes in which high performance dynamic behaviour, energy savings, pollution reduction or efficiency and safety are required.

This scientific and technological field, which is continuously evolving and progressing, also needs young researchers to be trained so they are capable of facing the new industrial challenges.

Aimed at

  • Graduates of engineering degrees in related subjects (Industrial Technologies, Industrial Electronics and Automation, Aerospace, Computer Science, Energy, Telecommunications and Electricity (the latter having taken the Specialisation Block in Automation). This group also includes applicants who hold a Bachelor's or Engineering degree from discontinued study plans (Industrial Engineering, Automation and Industrial Electronics, Aeronautics, Computer Science and Telecommunications, primarily, with second-cycle specialisations in the area).
  • There is also the possibility of access to the master’s degree in the following cases:
    - Foreign graduates
    - Graduates and higher graduates of discontinued curricula, not included in section 1.

Admission criteria

The admission of students to the master's degree is carried out by its Academic Committee and will be based on quality criteria (academic record and thematic suitability)..

Candidates will be ranked as follows:

  • Average mark obtained in the academic record of the university qualifications with which you are applying for the master's degree, taking into account the suitability of the training profile for the master's degree programme (80%).
  • Professional curriculum of the candidate, taking into account complementary training and other accomplishments of interest (20%).
