This master’s degree, which is taught using a classroom-based system, consists of 93 ECTS, structured into a first year with 63 ECTS and a second year with 30 ECTS.

In the first year, all the students of the master’s degree must take 63 ECTS organised in five compulsory modules. The first four compulsory modules correspond to those established in the aforementioned Orden Ministerial CIN/325/2009, whilst the fifth is a training complement in Tecnología de las Industrias Agroalimentarias directed at those students coming from mentions in the Degree or from specialities of Ingeniero Técnico Agrícola other than Industrias Agroalimentarias. All the master’s degree students must enrol in this subject, but those who, due to their prior training, have taken subjects that entitle them to accredit their acquisition of the competences of the mentioned training complement in Industrias Agroalimentarias, may apply for its recognition.

In the second year of studies, students must take 8 ECTS of compulsory external curricular practice and do a Final master’s degree project for 10 ECTS, as well as choosing between a training module in environmental management or another of research training, in both cases with a credit load of 12 ECTS.

  • The optional module of training in environmental management will consist of three subjects of 4 ECTS each that seek to complement the competences of the master’s degree pertaining to environmental management of productive activities in the agrifood sector.
  • In the optional module of research training, the student will be able to take three subjects chosen from those offered in the Máster Oficial en Técnicas Avanzadas de Investigación Agraria y Alimentaria which is taught in the ETSIA.

Final Master’s Degree Project

The Final Master’s Degree Project (TFM), in qualifications adapted to the EHEA, is a piece of work that each student must carry out individually to finish their degree. In this master’s degree the TFM has a teaching load corresponding to 10 ECTS.

Once all the credits of the study plan have been obtained, the student must prepare, present and defend an original piece of work carried out individually in front of a university tribunal, consisting in an integrated project of Agronomic Engineering in which the competences acquired in the training are synthesised.

Provided that the student has enrolled in the TFM, the procedures for the TFM will be started in the corresponding telematic application, which can be accessed from the Portal de Servicios.
