    Mechanical EngineeringWhy choose this Bachelor’s degree

    What does this degree offer me?

    You will acquire training in the wide range of activities currently carried out by Industrial Technical Engineers and, at the same time, a high level of specialisation as required by industry for engineers, specifically in the area of mechanics.

    Will I be able to complement it with a Master's degree?

    After completing the Bachelor’s degree, you can also complete your training with the Master's in Automotive Design and Manufacturing or the Master's in Industrial Engineering. This will qualify you for the legally regulated profession of industrial engineer and it has very broad professional competences.

    Will I be able to do a double degree?

    You will be able to broaden your training with the double degree in Mechanical Engineering + Industrial Design Engineering, and be able to develop products and services that combine technological performance with aesthetic, cultural, functional, environmental and quality features.



    Career opportunities

    Increased demand is estimated for automation, robotics and electronics and innovation profiles, as well as those combined with process optimisation and quality(Labour Market Guide, HAYS, 2019)


    High demand for engineers

    There is a growing demand for highly skilled engineers for new 21st century developments with high added value. Especially in highly industrialised regions.


    Facts about the professions of the future

    1,250,000 tech jobs will be created in Spain by 2022, according to Randstad Research


    Industria 4.0

    The Basque Government is committed to the incorporation of intelligence systems in production means and systems. That is why it has developed a specific Basque Industry 4.0 strategy. 


    What professional profile do companies need?

    Data Analytics, cloud computing, big data, social networks, Internet of Things, cyber-physical systems, mobility... are all trends for tech firms to exploit
