Career Opportunities

The graduate can work in multiple sectors and areas of activity of the industrial fabric of our country, such as mechanical manufacturing in general, machine tools, automotive and components, railroad, household appliances, logistics and maintenance, production plants of all types, energy production plants, etc., but also with a technological interaction in the R&D&I of nearby sectors, such as robotics, shipbuilding, aeronautical production or materials and nanotechnology, energy, etc. The graduate in Mechanical Engineering also has reserved professional attributions for many types of projects that due to their safety connotations require the signature of this professional.

Due to the above, the suitability of this degree to the socioeconomic characteristics of our country is undoubtable; it is not only suitable but very necessary for the industrial and external business development of companies in these sectors.

The Degree in Mechanical Engineering has been a profession and a university degree of reference for many years, both nationally and internationally, since its sectors of activity have always been implanted and have evolved towards innovative technologies that still need the contribution and the knowledge basis of Mechanical Engineering.

Regulated Profession

The Degree in Mechanical Engineering qualifies the student for the regulated profession of Industrial Technical Engineer, mechanical specialty as it is specified in Order 351/2009 (Order CIN 351/2009, of February 9, which establishes the requirements for the verification of official university degrees that qualify for the exercise of the Industrial Technical Engineer profession).

In this regard, according to Law 12/1986, of April 1, on the regulation of the professional attributions of architects and technical engineers, as amended by Law 33/1992 of December 9, corresponding to technical engineers, within their respective specialty, the following professional attributions should be noted:

A) The drafting and signing of projects for the construction, renovation, repair, maintenance, demolition, manufacture, installation, assembly or operation of personal property or real estate, in their respective cases, both in main and accessory character, provided that they are included by its nature and characteristics in the technique of each degree.

B) The management of the activities that are the subject of the projects referred to in the previous section, even when the projects have been prepared by a third party.

C) The performance of measurements, calculations, evaluations, appraisals, studies, reports, plans of work and other similar works.

D) The exercise of teaching in its various degrees in the cases and terms provided in the corresponding regulations, and in particular, in accordance with the provisions of Organic Law 11/1983, of August 25, on university reform.

E) The management of all kinds of industries or farms and the exercise, in general, of the activities referred to in the previous sections.

Development of Professional Skills

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.
