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.

"I have had the opportunity to live and take part in the process of starting up a new company"
At university I have had the opportunity to internalise skills that I did not expect, because learning through projects and working in teams is more than just overcoming a challenge. It is also about taking on responsibilities and honouring them, making decisions, developing creativity and communication skills... in a nutshell, growing as a person..
These experiences are multiplied with the DUAL model, allowing you to enter the real world of work. In my case, I have had the opportunity to live and take part in the process of starting up a new company.
