Specific admission conditions

Perfil de ingreso

  • Titulados en Ingeniería, principalmente los titulados en Grados de Ingeniería Informática o sus equivalentes en las titulaciones del sistema precedente (Ingenieros Técnicos en Informática de Gestión, Ingenieros Técnicos en Informática de Sistemas e Ingenieros en Informática) y titulaciones afines de la rama de la Informática, como por ejemplo, los Grados en Sistemas de Información, Ingeniería del Software o en Ingeniería de Computadores).
  • Titulados en disciplinas cuantitativas (Estadística, Matemáticas, etc).
  • Titulados en carreras relacionadas con Economía y Administración de Empresas.


Proceso de Admisión

El proceso de admisión, una vez pasada la evaluación inicial de la documentación y validación de criterios establecidos para los estudios de máster oficial en la UAH incluye las siguientes fases por parte de la comisión académica:

  • Estudio de la documentación aportada con el candidato y evaluación del expediente.
  • Entrevista personal con el candidato si procede. En esta entrevista la comisión se reserva la posibilidad de evaluar los conocimientos previos necesarios para la realización del master así como la destreza en el idioma español y/o inglés.

 

Los criterios para la admisión de los estudiantes al programa se basarán en los siguientes aspectos:

1. Valoración del expediente académico.

2. Experiencia profesional previa y su relación con el estudio.

3. Aptitud valorada en la entrevista personal cuando sea el caso.

 

El peso de estos criterios será de 65% para el punto 1 y 35% para el punto 2. En el caso que sea necesaria una entrevista personal (criterio 3), ésta actuará modificando las valoraciones de los criterios 1 y 2 según corresponda.

 

No son necesarios complementos formativos para estudiantes que no se ajusten a alguno de los perfiles de ingreso y no cumplan con los prerrequisitos establecidos anteriormente, ya que en caso contrario no serán admitidos al estudio.

Calendar

Classes will start on 26th September 2022.

Course duration: from September to July

The study will be taught online until June and 100% face-to-face in the last four weeks.

The methodological proposal of the Master's degree is conceived as blended learning, which will be supported by the online learning management system (LMS) of the UAH. Most of the training activities will be carried out using this platform, both asynchronously and synchronously. The Master's degree includes a face-to-face phase of between three and four weeks (depending on the calendar), at the end of the programme. In this way, the Master's programme will be followed online for most of the course (approximately from September to June, pending final planning).

The virtual component of the Master's degree is mainly aimed at providing the information and tools that enable students to acquire the competencies and skills necessary to be able to perform, in the most professional and efficient way possible, in each of the areas covered by the Master's degree. This individual learning is enriched by the guidance and contributions of teachers and classmates through collective construction. To this end, the virtual classroom has the necessary tools to facilitate the acquisition of competencies: collective forums, synchronous and asynchronous activities and assessments, synchronous group sessions, creation of interactive content, content organisers, etc.

The face-to-face component, which is expected to take place during the month of July and which attendance is required, is aimed at enriching the virtual exchange with face-to-face interaction between students, professors, etc., in order to generate spaces for exchanging experiences of real contexts of success in the application of Big Data techniques for business data analysis and to strengthen professional ties in this field. There will also be face-to-face validation tests of concepts that endorse the knowledge acquired throughout the course, as well as the reading of the Master's Dissertation before the board determined by the academic committee.
