International Spring Semester

Industrial Engineering Module

Applied Mechanics (6 ECTS)

In this subject the basic principles of strength of materials and mechanisms are studied. On one hand, strength of materials studies the loads that a structural system supports, in order to check the correct behavior on the strain and possible fractures in that structure. On the other hand, mechanisms are basic for the correct work of machines, that transmit forces and movement, that is, power (e.g. the engine of a car) to the link consuming that power (e.g. the wheels in the car).

Applied Mechanics


Fundamentals of Materials Sciences

The mechanical properties of materials, their different families and their industrial applications are studied. Students become familiar with the different materials and the ideal manufacturing method for product design. They study the relationship between the structure, properties and processing of materials, which determine their behavior and applications.

ICT Module

Software Requirements (6 ECTS)

One of the main tasks of graduates in Computing Engineering is the development of tools or software solutions. If the life cycle of a software system development process is analysed, the first step will always be the definition of what this system /tool is supposed to be; those who better know what they want are the system stakeholders, those who are affected by the prospective system. In this subject, students will gain the needed competences for the definition and modelling of a system in an organized and systematic way, as well as the techniques for gathering the required information from the stakeholders.

Software Requirements


Software Process and Quality (6 ECTS)

The aim of this subject is that students learn to successfully accomplish, in a productive and high quality manner, a software development process, encompassing all the development phases (software requirements, design, tests, deployment and maintenance), applying an agile methodology and using the set of support tools which help them in code generation, version and error control, documentation, tests and quality assurance.

Software Process and Quality


Intelligent Systems (6 ECTS)

The main contribution of this subject is in problem solving and application design according to given requirements and applying the specified criteria of effectiveness, efficiency cost and benefit. In particular, the course on Intelligent Systems places especial emphasis on solving difficult problems, many of them NP-complete, by means of designing and using heuristics for artificial intelligence algorithms, and by developing knowledge based systems.

Intelligent Systems


Interaction and Multimedia (6 ECTS)

Any graduate in Information and Communication Technology should be prepared to design and develop software applications. Many of them are interactive, intended to establish a dialog with the user. In order to ensure that the application adapts to user needs, it is mandatory for the designer to be familiar with human computer interaction issues. This course contributes to the graduate profile by providing the tools to develop computer applications that adapt to the characteristics and limitations of the users. In addition to the above, it is more and more common for these applications to include text and images, but also audio, video and animations. These multimedia applications put forward specific challenges, such as data compression and synchronization.

Interaction and Multimedia


Computer networks (6 ECTS)

Access to data and to the computers that generate them highly depends on the communication of data across all borders, infrastructure, and protocols. Citizens are increasingly demanding new communication lines for faster transmission with wider bandwidth and greater security not only in the so-called smart cities but also in isolated areas such as the rural sector. ICT engineers need then to know current protocols, network devices, and components that make up current computer networks. Cutting-edge theories and networking practices must be learned to design effective technical solutions that will work in any situation.
This course focuses primarily on the introduction of the main protocols of LAN and WAN networks, to later design, simulate and analyse solutions that meet structural and quality of service requirements.

Professionals in this field can develop projects related to:

  • The generation of creative and innovative solutions that put the user in the center of the project.
  • The use of tools for the understanding of needs and aspirations of users according to their user typology.
  • The development of products and services as strategic vectors of business' competitiveness.

Design Laboratory II: User Centered Design


Smart Products (6 ECTS)

The graduates in Industrial Design Engineering must be able to conceptualize, design and prototype smart connected products that feature more advanced characteristics than their traditional equivalent versions. The graduate in Industrial Design Engineering must carry out these activities taking into consideration additional aspects such as user experience, business potential and target market, or production cost, in order to achieve optimal smart product design. Consequently, during this course the student will explore related concepts and will develop experimental activities for acquiring this competence.

Design Laboratory III: Services and Experiences Design (6 ECTS)

This subject provides the graduate in Industrial Design Engineering with an introduction to the new Design paradigm, showing how to work through this new scenario. In order to achieve this, methodologies are applied, methods are studied and activities are carried out in this subject, which will enable the design of both experiences and services.

Design Laboratory III: Services and Experience Design


Digital Fabrication Technologies (6 ECTS)

This course combines open source and/or commercially available software with rapid prototyping equipment such as laser cutter, 3D printers, vinyl cutter and milling machines. Students will fabricate different assignments during the semester learning how to do the fabrication on their own and sharing the experience with others. In this concept, students will "create rather than consume technology" while "locally design and fabricate solutions" removing barriers such as access to equipment, access to expertise or even access to knowhow.

Advanced Statistics (6 ECTS)

In this subject, several statistical models for different purposes are studied. The subject begins with an introduction to multivariate analysis to revise essential calculus that is needed to develop future statistical models. Following, models for estimating relationships between variables are studied, such as linear or logistic regression models, focusing on the inference process and the interpretation of the results. Next, dimensionality reduction models, such as Principal Component Analysis or Factorial Analysis, are introduced, together with clustering methods. The importance of the combination of these two strategies is revealed by means of several examples. Finally, some notions about Bayesian statistics are introduced

Data Visualization (6 ECTS)

Data must be collected, explored, processed, stored, analyzed and finally converted into valuable information. We have to know how to show this valuable information in an appropriate and understandable way so that it can be understood by everyone to whom it is addressed and can help in decision making. To do this, we must know all the possible graphics to represent this information. In this subject, we also design and implement visual interfaces to guarantee the accessibility and interpretation of the information extracted from data. Technical content: ggplot2, shiny, dashboards implementation.

International Project Management (6 ECTS) 

Project management skills are basic requirements in the daily job of an engineer. They enable the efficient operation of the daily activity of an organization, especially in those one dealing with innovative products and services. Project management, as a discipline, requires an established organization and connection of work sequences. Nowadays, with global supply chain and remote locations, the correct execution of projects in terms of quality, time and costs has become more critical. This subject introduces the most common techniques and tools used when managing projects, and includes specific issues that arise when projects are conducted in an international scenario.
