The Master's degree in Agricultural Engineering (MUIA) qualifies students as Agricultural Engineers, while the Master's degree in Health and Vegetable Production (MUSPV) is oriented at acquiring skills required in the fields of health technology and agricultural production. The course plan of both degrees adopts a multidisciplinary academic approach and includes features for both professionals and researchers.
The double degree is an opportunity to acquire the skill sets of both masters in an integrated academic plan. That too, in a shorter time and at a lower cost than doing both masters individually. Therefore, instead of completing 102 ECTS in the MUIA and 60 ECTS in the MUSPV, MUIA students must complete only 133 ECTS in total.
1st year (60 ECTS): It is identical to the first year of the Master's degree in Agricultural Engineering
2nd year - semester A (38 ECTS): Students must take classes from the specialisation subjects of Vegetable Production and an elective from the professional orientation subjects of the Master's degree in Agricultural Engineering, in addition to four subjects from the Master's degree in Health and Vegetable Production: Biology and Ecology of Insects (33879, 2 ECTS), Biology and Ecology of Plant Pathogens (33884, 2 ECTS), History of Agriculture (33889, 2 ECTS), Intensification in Soil Technology (33890, 2 ECTS).
2nd year - semester B (35 ECTS): Students must take subjects from the Master's degree in Health and Vegetable Production: Agricultural Acarology (33882, 2 ECTS); Acarology of Citrus Pests (33883, 2 ECTS); Pest Control Methods (33880, 2 ECTS); Plant Disease Control Methods (33885, 2 ECTS); Diagnostic Methodology for Vegetable Diseases (33886, 3 ECTS) and a final master's thesis must be written for the Master's degree in Agricultural Engineering (33381, 12 ECTS) and for the Master's degree in Health and Vegetable Production (33892, 12 ECTS).
Target group Interested persons who have an official undergraduate university degree that qualifies them to exercise the profession of Technical Agricultural Engineer.
Students must fulfil the admission criteria for the Master's degree in Agricultural Engineering (MUIA) because this master's degree qualifies you to exercise a regulated profession.
The Undergraduate degree in Rural and Agrifood Engineering offered by the UPV, which has been used as the official university degree of reference to design the course plan for the Master's degree in Agricultural Engineering, is considered the degree of reference and its graduates, in line with the merit evaluation criteria established in this section, shall be admitted, as the case may be, to said Master's degree without any complementary qualifications being required.
Similarly, in line with the merit evaluation criteria established in this section, graduates of degrees equivalent to those indicated in the above paragraphs from any other Spanish university shall be, as the case may be, admitted as well. For all other applicants who fulfil the admission requirements, the body in-charge (ERT) of the MUIA shall establish the complementary qualifications that must be completed, which, in any case, shall be considered prerequisites for admission.
Holders of Technical Engineering degrees from the previous system must obtain the corresponding undergraduate degree via the established adaptation procedure.
In addition to the above, accredited B2 level in a foreign language and the grade of the university entrance exam shall be considered preferential requirements, according to the terms regulated by the UPV.
