Mechanical Engineering is one of the cornerstones of the consumer and equipment industry. In the last two decades, it has undergone significant development with the incorporation of new technologies that have made it possible to resolve old problems, tackle new fields and, in short, to be at the forefront of product development and innovation

This requires specialists in the design of mechanical components and systems who have a solid background both in the theoretical foundations of these new technologies and in the practical use of the tools employed in them. These specialists are mainly required to master the numerical techniques for the analysis of mechanical components and systems that have revolutionised the mechanical design process. This allows for a more agile process that facilitates the path towards the development of products that are optimised to fulfil their intended function, thereby making companies in the sector more competitive.

It is also necessary for these specialists to have a solid background in the fields related to the design of mechanical components and systems, such as representation systems, material selection procedures, in-service behaviour tests (fatigue resistance, vibrations, noise emission, etc.), not to mention manufacturing processes, all within a changing and competitive environment.


This is a demanding master¿s degree, where theoretical knowledge is as important as practical knowledge. Thus, the fact that the master¿s degree includes extensive training in the practical use of software tools and design and analysis methodologies, always preceded by solid training in the theoretical foundations that support them, means that the focus of this master's degree is both professional and research-oriented. In the first case, the training objectives correspond to the training and updating of professionals in the use and mastery of new technologies and methodologies, including the use of industrial software that incorporates them, as a tool to deepen their knowledge rather than as an end in itself. For those participants who wish to formalise their doctoral thesis, the detailed theoretical foundations covered during the master's degree will allow them to achieve the level of research training necessary to complete their doctoral studies.

The specific training objectives and general competences of the master's degree can be summarised as the training and updating of professionals in:

  • 1. Advanced mechanical design technologies, with an emphasis on computational techniques in mechanical engineering for the simulation of components, multibody dynamic systems and the mechanical behaviour of materials in service, including linear and non-linear behaviour.

  • 2. Selection of materials used in mechanical components.

  • 3. Modelling, numerical simulation and analysis of noise and vibrations.

  • 4. Experimental techniques and instrumentation for the field of mechanical components and systems.

  • 5. Computational simulation of manufacturing processes.

Aimed at

In order to be admitted to the master¿s degree, students must be graduates of Spanish education system degrees, to which the master's degree is mainly addressed: Degree in Mechanical Engineering, Degree in Industrial Technologies Engineering, Degree in Aerospace Engineering and Degree in Civil Engineering, and degrees with similar training to the above.

Access is also open to graduates from educational systems outside Spain without the need to have their degrees recognised, subject to verification by the University that they accredit a level of education equivalent to the corresponding official Spanish university degrees and that they are recognised in the country issuing the degree for access to postgraduate studies.
