Study plan guidelines

The Computer Engineering Degree offers a total of 618 ECTS, of which the student must take 240. The credits must be distributed as follows:

Basic courses (60 credits), compulsory courses (90 credits), optional courses for obtaining a specialty (48 credits,to obtain a diploma with a specific specialty the student must take all the courses of the module associated with it), optional courses (30 credits) and the degree's final project (12 credits).

Credit distribution for each course type of degrees:

Basic courses 60
Compulsory courses 90
Optional courses 78 (48 for the specialty + 30)
Prácticas externas Obligatorias -
Degree's final project 12

The degree is organized following a Module/Subject scheme where the student should achieve a set of competences, knowledges and training objectives. The high number of compulsory courses aims to provide the student with the basic skills that a computer engineer should possess regardless of the chosen specialty.

The general scheme of the degree is the following: plan

Therefore, the student will take 60 ECTS of basic courses, followed by 90 ECTS of compulsory courses so that during the sixth semester he will begin to study subjects of the chosen specialty.

The student can take 48 ECTS of specialty subjects from all the specialties but to obtain a specialty certificate in his diploma he must take all the subjects of the module of his chosen specialty.

Afterwards, each specialty is reinforced with optional complements (which consist on some extra courses and external interships). Finally, the degree's final project completes the 240 ECTS.

Our proposal includes the following modules and subjects (external interships and the degree's final project are included):


The proposal observes the recommendations of the current legislation (subjects as in BOE of 4th of August)

The module of basic training (observing the recommendations of RD 1393/2007) and its subjects is shown on the table:


According to the type of course, the degree is distributed in four years and eight semesters as follows:


Basic training takes place during the first year to allow students from related degrees to change their studies and to provide the student with basic knowledge from the beginning. The next three semesters contain only compulsory courses. The sixth and part of the seventh semester include optional subjects of each specialty where the student should choose 48 credits. The rest of the optional courses and the degree's final project are left for the last year.

The temporal distribution of the credits according to the modules and the subjects of the degree can be checked here.

The temporal distribution of the credits according to the academic year and semesters can be checked here.

It is important to note that the temporal distribution of optional courses may vary to fit the Educational Plan of the University of Granada (Plan de Ordenación Docente) and the current legislation.

Teaching guidelines

External Internships

All the information related to the degree's external internships is available here.

Training activities

  1. Individual tutorials. An academic tutor and a professional tutor will guide and assess the students on the contents of the degree to be developed externally. 3 ECTS (40% presential,60% non-presential).
  2. Seminars on the development of the internships: general legislation,information,resources and documentation. 0.5 ECTS (40% presential,60% non-presential).
  3. Individual work. The student will develope most part of the work individually and must produce a report of his work. 8 ECTS (100% non-presential).
  4. Assessment of the achieved skills. The student will present his report and will prepare a personal interview with his academic tutor which will include an explanation of his work and self-assessment of his performance. 0.5 ECTS (40% presential, 60 % non-presential).

Degree's final project

Current year information on final projects


  • - It is recommended the acquistion of the competences and knowledges of the courses of the first seven semester of the Degree.
  • - To be able to enrol in this course, the student must have taken at least 60% of the credits of the Degree including all basic courses.
  • - When a student enrols in this course, he must enrol for the amount of credits left to finish the Degree.

Assessment systems

The students will have to develop a work related with some field of their discipline and that will show that they know how to put together the knowledge and skills obtained during their studies.

There are two options to complete the work:

  • A) Projects proposed by the departments attached to the Degree.
  • B) Projects carried out in enterprises.

The projects will be tutored academically by at least one professor of the departments attached to the Degree.

For option A, it is possible to choose a second tutor which does not belong to the attached departments or even the academic scope.

For option B, the student has to choose as well an external tutor chosen by the enterprise where the work is carried out.

In any case, external tutors and tutors that do not belong to the academic scope must be properly qualified.

For option B, if the student made an external internship in the same enterprise then the topic chosen for the work will be different than the topic chosen for the internship.

In both options it is allowed to make the project with more than one student with the approval of the professor or the enterprise and once they assess the load of the work to complete.

The documentation to be handled will follow the following general format:

  • - Summary
  • - Extended summary (in English, at least 500 words).
  • - Introduction and references.
  • - Objectives analysis and methodology.
  • - Design and solution.
  • - Conclusion. Future work.
  • - Final bibliography.

Once the project is finished, the academic tutor will submit a report which needs to be positive in order to proceed with the defense of the work. If option B, is chosen the external tutor will also submit a report. All the report will need to point out the satisfaction level with the obtained results and the documentation produced. These reports will be taken into consideration by the examining board.

Finally, the student will make a public defense of his work before an examining board chosen by the School. This examining board will be composed by at least three professors (including the president and the secretary) belonging to one of the departments attached with the Degree. The exposition could be done totally or partially in English (introduction,objectives,summary and conclusion) in order to evaluate competence T7.

Once the exposition is finished, the board could ask questions to the students optionally in English. The final mark of the work will be determined by the board, which wil assess the achievements of the project, its documentation and defense of the work and the reports submitted by the tutors. The results will be weighted according to the regulations approuved by the School's assembly (Junta de Centro).

All other considerations related to the assessment of the work will follow the regulations of the teaching plan and exams organization approuved by the University of Granada. The final result will be expressed numerically according to the European Credits System and Grades Systems of the University Diplomas (art. 5, R. D 1125/2003, 5th of september).

Training activities

  1. Individual tutorials: the tutors will provide the student with all the information and resources needed to develop the project. The tutors will check periodically the progress of the work.
  2. Seminars (in groups and presential): the seminars will deal with the development of the project. The first seminar with deal with the general developement of the project (application,enrolment,coordination and assessment). The second seminar will deal with the preparation and organisation of the documentation and public defense of the work.
  3. Individual work (non-presential): the student will develope most part of the work individually and must produce a report of his work.
  4. Assessment of the achieved skills (individual and presential): the student will present his report and a presentation for the defense before the examining board.



The Degree's final project is an original and individual exercise that needs to be presented and defended before an examining board. It consists on a project dealing with specific technologies in the scope of Computer Engineering. Its aim is to produce a professional work that summarises the competences adquired in the Degree.
