Master’s Degree in Industrial Engineering

It is a very cross-disciplinary programme. The subjects taken are in the areas of industry that are most in demand, from new manufacturing technologies to robotics and artificial intelligence.

What would you highlight about the program?

It is a very transversal program. The subjects studied belong to the areas of the industry that are most in demand, from new manufacturing technologies to robotics and artificial intelligence.

On the other hand, I would also highlight the practical orientation of this master’s degree. Thanks to the link between IQS and companies, students have the opportunity to visit companies in the sector to learn about the reality of the industry and the challenges they face.

What is your personal rating?

I decided to take the master’s degree to have a more complete training as an Industrial Engineer. The master’s degree reveals new tools, knowledge and skills that are not developed in the degree. Master’s training is increasingly in demand in the industry.

What subjects did you like the most?

The subject that I liked the most was “Advanced Robotics, Mechatronics and Artificial Intelligence”. The applicability of this subject is fundamental in the current industrial revolution, since we develop Machine Learning models and Big Data techniques.

What has the master’s degree given you personally and professionally?

The master’s degree has given me a different vision to face current industrial challenges. Above all, it has allowed me to obtain additional skills that mark the differential feature as an Industrial Engineer.

What advice would you give to a future student who wants to study this master’s degree?

I would tell you that it is a master’s degree that will allow you to master different industrial areas. He would also tell you to make the most of the laboratory and project hours, since, with this methodology, you will be able to apply all the knowledge learned in the classroom and be more prepared when facing a real challenge.

Can you talk about your TFM?

My TFM consists of the characterization of 3D printed Gyroid type Triply Periodic Minimal Surface steel structures. Due to their complexity, these structures cannot be manufactured by conventional methods. On the other hand, its manufacture is viable from 3D printing methods. These structures were developed by NASA engineers. Gyroids are interesting structures since they allow weight to be lightened. That is why its application focuses on the aeronautical and aerospace sector. Now, research focuses on its structural behavior and mechanical properties.
