The Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering is designed for students who have a passion for problem-solving and an interest in the diverse realm of mechanics and its applications in industry and technology. This program encompasses various areas, including the design and manufacturing of vehicles, machinery, engines, automation, robotics, digital industry, additive manufacturing systems, and 3D printing, with a focus on polymeric and metallic materials. It also explores fields like smart materials, biomechanics, energy generation, and the utilization of alternative energy sources.
Mechanical Engineering is a longstanding and highly sought-after discipline within the field of industrial engineering. Its enduring appeal in recent years is due to the versatility and adaptability that mechanical engineers acquire during their university education, making them well-equipped for success in various professional endeavors.
The Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering equips students for regulated professional activities in Spain, with professional privileges equivalent to those of an Industrial Technical Engineer (as per Order CIN/351/2009). Mechanical engineers are known for their adaptability and their ability to apply their knowledge across a wide range of industrial sectors. Additionally, this degree serves as a direct pathway to the Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering and, subsequently, the Doctorate in Industrial Technologies. Notably, the latter program, unique among private universities in Madrid, offers opportunities to engage with research, development, and innovation (R+D+I) teams in companies, universities, or research centers.
In pursuit of these goals, Nebrija University is dedicated to providing students with cutting-edge training, enabling them to acquire essential competences for thriving in the industries and technologies of the future. Our curriculum is distinguished by its highly practical approach, standing out as one of the few programs in Spain that allocates 12 credits for professional internships. Furthermore, we bolster our graduates' employability by extensively incorporating software tools that enhance their engineering project design and simulation capabilities, including Ansys, Catia, Matlab, Python, and Mastercam.
We are also committed to enriching our students' professional profiles, offering specialization diplomas in Digital Industry, Business Analytics, and SAP. Moreover, we provide opportunities to broaden academic horizons through double degree programs, such as Mechanical Engineering + Automobile Engineering, and facilitate international experiences by fostering partnerships with over 400 foreign universities.
