Information for company

A MEDIUM FOR SERVICING COMPANIES

The End-of-Course/End-of-Master’s Project is also intended to provide a service to companies, as this has a great value from two points of view:
  1. The contribution to the company’s technological and organisational development. The qualification of students, even if they are not experienced professionals, is very high. This means that the results achieved after the completion of the one-year TFG/TFM are of considerable value. 
  2. The recruitment of qualified personnel. In most cases, students carry out the project at the company on a full-time basis. During this time, they have the chance to acquire in-depth knowledge of the company, its technology, organisation, culture, procedures, etc. while integrating it into their work teams. The company also trains them, knowing them and valuing them, which allows it to judge with greater knowledge if they are suitable people for professional integration into the workforce.

End-of-Degree/End-of-Master's project typology

Aware of the need to better respond to the expectations of companies and students, the ESP has established a TFG/TFM model, which, along with the possibility of incorporation of students into companies through study-work, constitutes a highly attractive, high-value training and technology offer to companies.

The academic structure is as follows:

End-of-Degree/End-of-Master's project process

The End-of-Degree/End-of-Master’s Project Process is divided into four subprocesses, namely:

  • Capture of the TFG/TFM: This subprocess aims to obtain from the companies requests for high-quality End-of-Degree/End-of-Master’s Projects, that is, TFGs/TFMs suitable for the professional profile, with well-defined objectives, a dimension appropriate to the duration of the project, and the best possible technological level. For this purpose, a series of persons responsible for academic qualifications have been defined, who are in charge of assisting companies on any doubts they may have regarding the characteristics and requirements to be fulfilled by the TFG/TFM.
  • Assignment of the TFG/TFM: This subprocess aims to assign to students their End-of-Course/End-of-Master’s Project. It is a complex task, as it consists of satisfying the needs of two clients: the student and the company. This subprocess is carried out by the Projects Committee, with a set of criteria being taken into account such as: the level of the project and requirements of the company, place of residence of the student and location of the company, preferences of the student, history of the relationship with the company, etc.
  • Execution and Follow-up of TFG/TFM: This subprocess aims to ensure that the project is carried out in a satisfactory manner for the company and for the student. For this purpose, the following are defined:

Project Manager: A person from the company who assumes the responsibility of applying the necessary resources on the part of the company for the correct development of the project and subsequent execution of the global evaluation of the End-of-Degree/End-of-Master’s Project.

Project Director: The technical staff of the company or EPS, which assumes the responsibility of guiding the student in the decisions necessary to achieve the project’s objectives.

Project Tutor: EPS staff that assumes the responsibility of ensuring that the academic requirements of the project are met and serves as an intermediate between the company and EPS in the event that the project management is carried out in the company itself.

  • Evaluation and assessment of the TFG/TFM: This subprocess aims to evaluate the student’s training process and to assess the satisfaction of the student and the company. Thus, the TFG/TFM is presented and defended before an academic jury, in which teachers and the company’s staff participate and which qualifies the student according to established criteria.

On the other hand, through surveys, the company and the student perform their assessment of the process. This set of data is then taken to the Projects Committee, where it is assessed, with actions taken for a continuous improvement of the Process.

Calls in September and February

 

End-of-Degree/End-of-Master's project abroad

Internationalisation is one of the strategic challenges of Mondragon Unibertsitatea. This internationalisation covers two aspects of basic research, with professors from our university participating jointly in research projects with foreign universities, and student mobility, with participation in exchange programmes between universities.

The different student mobility programmes offer the opportunity to complete university studies, obtain postgraduate degrees, work experience and carry out the Final Degree / Master's work in European countries, North America and Latin America.

It should be mentioned that more than 50 students are currently pursuing their End-of-Course/End-of-Master’s Projects in companies abroad.

For TFGs/TFMs in foreign companies, the legal framework is regulated by the ERASMUS Agency through the ERASMUS Programme (former LEONARDO), which establishes::

  • Mobility project institutional contract (EPS – ERASMUS Agency
  • An ERASMUS stay agreement (EPS – Student-Company – “Intermediate”)

This legal framework can provide coverage throughout the year of development of the TFG/TFM. The complementary policies for accidents and civil liability, in turn, will be managed jointly between EPS and the company.

At the time of requesting a project, each company can:

1. Apply for a project abroad with a CAV student

  • Stay in a European company: 10-month ERASMUS agreement
  • Stay in a non-European company: 10-month Labour Contract or University-Company Agreement

Administrative conditions: PFC abroad (PDF)

2.  Apply for a project in CAV with a foreign student
