The End of Degree Project is an academic report that delves into a subject of the curriculum and allows the evaluation of the skills acquired in the Degree. It can be linked to the professional internship or it can also be part of a research project.
They are those that have an instrumental function. Among them we highlight the following:
They are individual abilities related to the ability to express one's feelings, critical skills and self-criticism. Social skills related to interpersonal skills, the ability to work as a team or the expression of social and ethical commitment. These skills tend to facilitate the processes of social interaction and cooperation. We highlight the following:
They are the skills and abilities that concern systems as a whole. These skills include the ability to plan changes so that improvements can be made to the systems as a whole and design new systems. Systemic or integrative skills require the prior acquisition of instrumental and interpersonal skills. The most notable are:
The End of Degree Project must verify the acquisition and integration by the student of the general and specific skills of the degree.
The End of Degree Project must verify the student's acquisition of general skills by designing and developing an engineering project of sufficient complexity, concentrating the effort from the perspective of innovation, emphasizing its development in a work team. Part of your workload may be devoted to simulation and/or research work. In its implementation, the student must also acquire personal skills linked to the search and organization of documentation, presentation, group work, etc.

Nebrija University's commitment to academic rigorousness, the training in companies and leading institutions, the innovation in multidisciplinary programs and the international projection, places the University in the first positions of the most important rankings.
The International Ranking QS Stars grants Nebrija University the highest score in quality and in student satisfaction with regards to teaching, the employability of graduates and the internationalization of the institution.
The national rankings also recognize Nebrija University as the first Spanish university in teaching and second in employability, highlighting its performance in research, knowledge transfer and internationalization.
The Bologna Declaration formalized the principles on which the European Higher Education Area should be based: quality, mobility, diversity, competitiveness and employment growth.
From this, Nebrija stands as an academic model of reference, educating students with excellent individual behavior, interaction with their environment and motivated by and for constant and continuous training. The Nebrija Institute of Professional Skills works every day to achieve the differentiation of our students through the development of attitudes and skills.
The main objective is for students to achieve the best of themselves through the development and empowerment of their personal skills and resources through personal self-knowledge.
In addition, some of the professional skills that are worked on within the three seminars are those related to interpersonal skills and active communication skills and negotiation, indispensable for our students to know how to transmit ideas, to argue them, to provide information and opinions in an adequate, clear and convincing way.
Within what will be their work performance, other aspects such as teamwork, conflict resolution and project management ability will be worked on.
In the third block, skills worked on are those aimed at increasing the student's employability. They will work with tools and techniques for job searching, and perform tasks that achieve in the student a greater use of their personal skills.
For all this we have currently active experts in selection of people, professionals dedicated to personal and professional training and professionals dedicated to the world of communication and the arts.
In this way, and in a complementary way to his/her specific training, we help the student create a differentiating pattern in the social and business environment in which he/she will be immersed when he/she finishes his/her studies.
Graduates of Engineering in Mechanical have:
