Admission and registration


Royal Decree 861/2010, of 2 July, which amends Article 16 of Royal Decree 1393/2007, of 29 October, concerning the organization of official university education, states:

To access to official master’s education, applicants must hold either an official Spanish university degree or one conferred by a higher education institution in a country belonging to the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) that entitles access to master’s education in such country.

Access may also be granted to those possessing a degree from an educational system outside the EHEA, without requiring its homologation, but following verification by the UMH that the degree represents an educational level that is equivalent to the corresponding official Spanish university degree and that it entitles access to graduate education within the issuing country. Access this way does not mean, under any circumstance, homologation of the degree the interested party holds, or its recognition for anything besides acceptance into a master’s program.


Incoming student profile: For admission into this program, possession of an advanced degree, bachelor’s or technical, of a technical nature is recommended. For example, these include industrial engineering, telecommunications engineering, computer engineering, technical industrial engineering (all specialties), technical telecommunications engineering, or technical computer engineering.

Admittance into this program is the responsibility of the Master’s Committee, formed for such purpose by the Systems Engineering and Automation Department, and comprised of:
– Master’s coordinator
– Master’s assistant coordinator
– One faculty member with teaching tasks in the program

This committee will reform every year or whenever necessary due to a change of the master’s coordinator or assistant coordinator.

This committee will make a preliminary selection of the program applicants using the following criteria:

Assessment of the curriculum (20 – 40%)
· Professional experience in the field of robotics
· Courses related to the program subject matter
Assessment of the academic record (30 – 60%)
Merits especially relevant or significant in relation to the program (20 – 40%)
· Participation in research projects related to robotics
· Attendance to scientific conferences and meetings
· Publications in the field of robotics
Any other relevant information that helps verify the suitability of the applicant for attaining the program’s competencies and skills (0 – 10%)
· Awards
· Stays or collaboration with related centers
· Other qualifications

Furthermore, possession of an A2 level in English according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages of the EHEA, or its equivalent, is required. Applicants who do not officially accredit this level will be given an examination by the Master’s Committee to verify that they possess sufficient linguistic ability to follow the program’s courses.
