STUDENT PROFILE

 

INTRODUCTION

 

The common objective of all Bachelor’s degree programmes in Computer Science is to give graduates professional training in the field, as well to allow them to carry out tasks related to the design and development of applications and information systems. All the activities carried out as part of the degree are performed while ensuring their reliability, security and quality. In addition, graduates will gain the skills necessary to enable them to plan, deploy and manage projects and information systems. Generally, Bachelor’s degree programmes in the field of Computer Science Engineering aim to give students the skills [in Spanish] required to exercise the profession of Computer Science Engineer, these are outlined in the Decision of the Board of Universities [in Spanish], published in the Official State Gazette BOE no. 187 (4th of August 2009).

The Bachelor’s degree of Computer Science also has the more specific objective of providing graduates with a broad academic profile to enable them to choose from one of the three possible majors: Computing, Information Systems and Information Technologies. The professional profile of students will depend on the chosen major. More details on the different majors can be found in the table below: 

Major Description
Computing

This major aims to equip students with a solid grounding in science, with a particular emphasis on the key principles of computational models, algorithms and programming language, and the uses of artificial intelligence in automated systems. It aims to give students broad, rather than specific knowledge of the field, paying special attention to the core principles of Computer Science.

Objectives:

  1. To provide future professionals with a solid grounding in Science.
  2. To enable students to expand their knowledge of key computational model principles and of algorithms and programming languages.
  3. To enable students to apply artificial intelligence techniques to automated systems.
Information Systems

A Computer Science Engineer studying this major should be able to respond to all the managerial needs of business and organisations, via the development and implementation of IT solutions. He/she should be able to understand business strategies and how Information and Communications Technology can contribute to its successful completion. He/she should also have an awareness of new trends and technologies in the ICT sector, and be able to analyse, plan and develop solutions which support the strategic needs of an organisation.

Objectives:

  1. To help students gain an understanding of business strategies, and of how Information and Communications Technology can contribute to its successful completion.
  2. To enable students to analyse, plan and develop solutions to support the business needs of the organisation..
  3. To help students behave like an internal consultant in the various functional areas of the organisation.
  4. To enable students to advise and direct businesses on how they can make efficient use of ICTs to facilitate their business operations.. 
Information Technologies

This major aims to instruct students in the knowledge and application of Information Technologies: computers, networks, software systems, management tools, etc. Accordingly, students with this profile should be capable of providing technological support to the users of large scale information systems, of selecting, creating, applying, integrating and administering computational technologies in order to satisfy the needs of businesses and organisations as well as the users within these organisations.

 Objectives:

  1. To enable students to provide technological support to the users of large scale information systems.
  2. To enable students to select, create, apply, integrate and administer computational technologies in order to satisfy the needs of users within organisations.
  3. To enable students to direct solution designs for information systems for clients with available hard and software products.
  4. To help students gain expertise in one of the specific products of a system, and to make students capable of working with experts in other areas of expertise.

Students must pass 66 credits worth of elective modules. 36 credits (six modules) correspond to the “Major specific compulsory modules” of the chosen major. The remaining 30 credits are made up of “elective” modules. These 30 elective credits can be obtained by passing “elective modules” offered as part of the degree. A maximum of 6 credits can also be obtained by carrying out cultural, sports or humanitarian activities at University (see guidelines). Finally, credits can be awarded on the basis of the completion of a mobility programme

OFFICIAL DOCUMENTATION

  

INCOMING STUDENT PROFILE

The recommended incoming student profile for Bachelor’s degree programmes refers to the desired knowledge, skills and basic competences of potential incoming students achieved at High School level or as part of an Advanced Vocational Training course.

Regarding the academic background of incoming students, it is recommended that High School students have taken courses related to Technology. For students from Advanced Vocational Training courses, the most relevant specialisations to this degree are: “Administration of IT systems” and “Development of IT applications”. 

 In view of the academic and technical requirements  of the degree, it is highly recommended that students have:  

  1. A good understanding of Mathematics and Physics, such as the LOGSE Bachillerato or equivalent.  
  2.  An aptitude for managing algorithms and processes.  
  3.  Skills in using IT tools (operating systems, word processors, spreadsheets, databases…) 

Additional desirable skills and competences include:

  1. The ability to observe, to pay attention and to concentrate.
  2. An aptitude for numerical and logical reasoning.
  3. An aptitude for understanding and reasoning on abstract models that replicate the specific features of case studies.

As well as the aforementioned academic skills and competences, the following personal qualities are desirable in incoming students:

  1. Creativity, imagination and a willingness to innovate.
  2. Organisational skills and a methodological approach to tasks.
  3. The ability to be receptive, practical and open to new challenges when faced with the need to improvise.
  4. A positive attitude towards group work, communication and responsibility.
