Track 1: Intended for students who have completed the Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Engineering (Profile A according to the Industrial Technical Engineering and Industrial Engineering Directors Conferences document) who want to further enhance their skills related to research, development, and innovation. This is also the preferred track for students who wish to continue with doctoral studies.

Track 2: Students who have completed the Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Engineering (Profile A according to the Industrial Technical Engineering and Industrial Engineering Directors Conferences document) who want to further their skills related to the exercise of the Industrial Engineering profession through internships within companies or centres that are active in the field of Industrial Engineering. Students can do an internship within companies, technology centres, engineering firms, or research laboratories for a total of 16 credit hours.

Track 3: This track allows students who have completed a degree related to engineering and partially comply with the requirements of Spanish Ministerial Order CIN/311/2009, of 9 February (Profile B according to the document approved by the Industrial Technical Engineering and Industrial Engineering Directors Conferences), and students who have completed a bachelor’s degree and who, in order to comply with the requirements of Spanish Ministerial Order CIN/311/2009, of 9 February, must take complementary courses within and beyond the master’s degree (Profile C according to the document approved by the Industrial Technical Engineering and Industrial Engineering Directors Conferences). It is recommended that students take subjects in three specific technologies, with a minimum of 6 ECTS for each of the following: Mechanical, Electrical, Industrial Chemistry, Textile, and Industrial Electronics. Therefore students who need complementary subjects in the master’s degree have to choose elective subjects from the M4 module in case they need to take subjects in Specific Technologies. Students can combine two specialization subjects from Module 4 (both of which are 6 credits) with one from the 4-credit elective module.

IQS is committed to quality and has different processes in place to ensure continuous improvement through the IQS School of Engineering Quality Committee.

Since 1995, the IQS School of Engineering has featured a Quality Management Unit. Initially, the efforts were related to the Technical Services that IQS provides to industries, companies, and governmental entities.

Since 2000, many of its actions have been aimed at implementing a quality system in the field of teaching. The manual of the Internal Quality Assurance System (SGIC) for the IQS School of Engineering within Ramon Llull University (URL) was presented to the AQU for evaluation in the 2009 AUDIT call and holds a favourable review as of 22 April 2010. The Quality Assessment Committee of AQU Catalunya met on 11 December 2012 and ratified the extension of the SGIC design to consider the addition of the IQS School of Management AUDIT programme. The Master’s Degree in Industrial Engineering has passed the accreditation process of AQU Catalunya, in accordance with the Framework, for the verification, monitoring, modification, and accreditation of official university degrees (2010). Ramon Llull University (URL) and its centres already boast a long history of developing policies, strategies, and actions focused on guaranteeing the quality of their degrees, teaching activity, and research and management.
