Goals and skills

El título no da acceso a una profesion regulada.

This section describes key aspects of the definition of the title:

In the description of the general and specific skills has been considered to conform to the respect of fundamental rights and equality between men and women, with the principles of equal opportunities and universal access for people with disabilities and the values of the culture of peace and democratic values.

The title does not give access to a regulated profession.

Goals

The program aims to provide students with knowledge, skills and advanced skills oriented professional training or to their research training on technologies, systems, applications and services related to the Information Society, particularly with Information and Communications Technologies.

Reference framework

When designing this curriculum has taken into account various frameworks for framing skills to be acquired. These frameworks are:

a) The principles set out in Article 3.5 of the RD 1393/2007:

Respect for fundamental rights and equality between men and women and should be included in the curriculum where appropriate, courses related to these rights.

Respect for and promotion of human rights and the principles of universal accessibility and design for all in accordance with the provisions of Law 51/2003.

b) European Qualification Framework (EQF)

The objective of EQF is to create a common frame of reference that serves as a translation device for different systems and levels of skill. Establishes must be competent regardless of the system where this qualification is acquired. This does not apply the traditional approach that emphasizes learning inputs (duration of the studies, school type, ...) but on the results of competency-based learning.

Specifically for the level of Masters graduates as EQF:

  • Knowledge: highly specialized knowledge, some of them at the forefront of a field of work or study, providing the basis for original thinking. Critical awareness of knowledge issues in a field and at the interface between different fields.
  • Skills: specialized skills to solve problems in research and innovation in order to develop new knowledge and procedures and to integrate knowledge from different fields.
  • Competencies: Management and transformation of work or study contexts are complex, unpredictable and require new strategic approaches. Assumption of responsibility in regard to the development of knowledge and / or professional practice and reviewing the strategic performance of teams.

c) The Royal Decree 1393/2007, from October 29th, which establishes the organization of official university studies, which indicated that it will guarantee at least the following basic competencies for masters students:

  • That the students can apply their knowledge and ability to solve problems in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study.
  • Students should be able to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, and formulate judgments based on information that was incomplete or limited, include reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments.
  • That students can communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences in a clear and unambiguous.
  • Students must possess the learning skills to enable them to continue studying in a way that will be largely self-directed or autonomous.

d) The proposals performed by the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid described in the "Requirements and recommendations for studies plans implementation at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid" included in the Government Consolidated Agreements dated 26/06/08, 10/07/08 and 24/07/08:

  • Using the English language.
  • Teamwork.
  • Oral and written communication.
  • Use of Information Technologies and Communications.
  • Creativity.
  • Team leadership.
  • Organization and planning.
  • Respect for the environment.

Transversal skills

The transversal competences provided by the title are:

  • Ability to apply knowledge and solve problems in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study.
  • ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, and formulate judgments based on information that was incomplete or limited, include reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments.
  • Ability to communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences in a clear and unambiguous.
  • Ability to continue studying in a way that will be largely self-directed or autonomous.

Title graduate profile general skills

Based on the frameworks described above defines the following general competencies that define the profile of the graduate in the Master's degree, they are:

Depending on the intensification chosen by the student, the graduate profile will be nuanced. Thus, in the case of Boosting Systems will have a greater focus on the application of ICT to the development and application of devices and systems (communications, electronics, localization, processing, etc..) For the Information Society, while in the case of Boosting in Services, will be more oriented to the development of applications for the Information Society, taking into account criteria of accessibility, safety and equality.

Title specific skills: proffesional itinerary
Since the professional path consists of two specializations, competencies exist for both common and other intensification own. The following tables list the specific skills for the professional path indicating the level reached by Bloom's taxonomy.
