RECOMMENDED ENTRY PROFILE

Two suitable entry profiles have been identified: on the one hand, one that serves students who access the Degree, having previously studied the Bachelor's degree course; and on the other hand, one that serves those who have access having studied the Higher Degree Vocational Training.

Students who access from the Bachelor's Degree

It is advisable to complete the Bachelor's Degree in Technology or of Natural Sciences (in the case of LOGSE), and the Bachelor’s Degree in Sciences and Technology (in the case of LOE), as well as 3 or 4 of the following subjects: “Earth and Environmental Sciences”, “Electrotechnics”, “Physics”, “Mathematics II”, and “Industrial Technologies II”.

Students who access it from the Higher Degree Vocational Training

It is advisable to have attended similar Higher Degree Training Cycles or with a high degree of affinity with this degree, as is the case of the Higher Degree Training Cycles “Power Plants” and “Renewable Energies”.

PROFILE CHARACTERISTICS COMMON TO STUDENTS, IRRESPECTIVE OF THE MEANS OF ACCESS

In accordance with the linguistic policy of the Higher Polytechnic School responsible for the development of the teaching, that the students are expected to obtain around 60% of the credits in Basque, around 20% in Spanish, and the remaining 20% in English.

Therefore, it is desirable that students have previously acquired the language skills listed below:

Language Reads Speaks Writes
Basque C1* C1 C1
Spanish C1 C1 C1
English B2* B1* B2

*Levels established by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: learning, teaching, and evaluation.

Finally, it is convenient for the student to have concerns related to the impact that the engineering work can have on the environment and society.

Notwithstanding what is indicated in this subsection, they are recommendations that will not be required as prerequisites for admission in the studies except in exceptional circumstances. Thus, for example, in the case of Basque, given that 60% will be taught in this language, students from the Basque Autonomous Community who do not master it will exclude themselves. In the case of students outside the Basque Country, it will be required to prove that a level equivalent to C1 has been acquired (according to the common European reference framework for languages: learning, teaching, and evaluation).

In the case of English, at the time of access to the lessons, the student must take a test to identify the level of knowledge of the language. Those who do not have a level equivalent to B1* should take the subject “English for Science and Technology” (or even “Writing of Scientific-Technical Texts in English’).
