The End-of-Course/End-of-Master’s Project (TFG/TFM) at the Higher Polytechnic School (EPS) of Mondragón Unibertsitatea (MU) has several objectives:
On the one hand, it plays a very important role in the training process of EPS engineers, as the satisfactory execution of a project with characteristics that are appropriate to the future professional profile aims to help the student expected to have their first supervised experience professional as an engineer.
The academic engineering plans at EPS were designed so that students can alternate between study and work throughout their training process. Thanks to this, most of our students have close contact with the company throughout their training. Nevertheless, the TFG/TFM aims to establish a student-company relationship that is appropriate to the characteristics of the professional profile, that is, it aims to show the student what the engineering work consists of.
Enire Beain – Engineering in Ecotechnologies in Industrial Processes, second year
This degree, unlike other engineering courses, has a broad and open approach: it analyses manufacturing technologies and the environment. Thanks to this, I have had the opportunity to start working in a company in the dual training format, as this degree has a direct relationship with the industry. To apply the concepts worked on in class, we develop team projects. In one of them, for example, we developed an electric car that collects metal waste. This type of project makes it easier for students to see the application of everything we see in theory, checking what its real use would be.
