Presentation (Doctorate In Computer Technology and environmental Engineering)

The Polytechnic School of the UCAM is framed within the area of ​​Engineering, offering undergraduate degrees such as Architecture, Civil Engineering, Road Engineering, Telecommunication Systems Engineering, Computer Engineering and Building Engineering. These departments bring together young but consolidated research groups, which bring together various lines within this area and, in general, we can divide into: computational and applied. The computational lines are those that try to improve the theoretical-practical approach of engineering among which we highlight: High Performance Computing that seeks to develop efficient computer applications, both in time and consumption, to help solve unimaginable problems not long ago ; Computational Mechanics, that combines the principles of theoretical and applied mechanics with numerical methods and computer techniques in order to produce models and simulations of increasingly efficient processes; Multimedia Technologies, which uses signal processing and numerical methods to improve quality and accuracy in new forms of communication and information, or Bioinformatics, which analyzes biological problems that directly affect our environment, and provides possible alternatives for its study by computer techniques.

On the other hand, the applied lines put emphasis on solving problems of interest to society in the field of environment and sustainable development, using the knowledge, methodologies and techniques developed in theoretical research, with the fundamental objective of innovation and transfer technological Among them we highlight: Territory Engineering, Sustainability and Environment whose research objective is the development of infrastructure and sustainable territorial models in balance with the environment, as well as the application of techniques that help solve the problems of degradation of natural resources ; and Hydrological Engineering that develops and applies methodologies and procedures for analysis and calculation, in order to determine magnitudes and parameters of hydrological variables.

The future doctors of this program have as professional alternatives:

  • Postdoctoral research in the area of ​​Engineering and the Environment, and due to its multidisciplinary training, in other areas of knowledge such as Health Sciences.
  • University teacher.
  • Training focused on professionals and researchers of engineering.
  • Departments of R + D + i of technological companies. In this sense, a series of agreements has been signed with companies that participate in the program.

Application Procedures

Application procedures and requirements.

Access requirements

It is recommended that students who enter the doctoral program have completed a bachelor's or master's degree in fields derived from the following specializations:

  • Civil, Environmental, Structural and Hydraulic Engineering.
  • Computer and Telecommunications Engineering.
  • Agronomic Engineering.
  • Building Engineering and Architecture.

In addition, previous participation in research activities will be valued, such as participation in projects, publications or attendance at scientific meetings. In the same way, the training courses carried out (other than the master's degree), related to the research lines of the doctoral program, and the accreditation of a level of knowledge of English comparable to B1 will be considered. This profile will be made public before the start of each academic year.

The organ that will carry out the admission process is the Academic Committee of the Program.


  • Be in possession of an official Spanish university degree, or of another member country of the EHEA, that qualifies for access to a master's degree and have passed a minimum of 300 ECTS in the set of official university studies, of which at least 60 must be of Master's level.
  • Be in possession of an official Spanish degree, whose duration is at least 300 ECTS according to community law standards. These graduates must take compulsory training complements, unless the curriculum of the corresponding degree includes credits for training in research, equivalent in training value to research credits from master studies.
  • Previously, having obtained, university graduates, a place of specialized medical training or having passed with positive evaluation at least two years of training a program for obtaining the official title of any of the specialties in Engineering Sciences.
  • Be in possession of a degree obtained in accordance with foreign educational systems, without the need for homologation, after verification by the university that the degree accredits a level of education equivalent to the official Spanish university master's degree and that it authorizes in the issuing country title for access to doctoral studies.
  • Be in possession of another Spanish doctorate degree obtained in accordance with previous university ordinances.
  • Be in possession of the Diploma of Advanced Studies obtained in accordance with the provisions of RD 778/98, of April 30, or have exceeded the Research Sufficiency as regulated by RD 185/85, of January 23 through programs of doctorate linked to the field of Engineering Sciences.

Students who meet the access requirements will be admitted to the doctoral program, taking into account the following merits:

  • Academic record of the candidate (70%): Qualifications obtained by the candidate both in their undergraduate (or equivalent) and master's degree studies.
  • Participation in research activities (projects, publications, congresses) (10%).
  • Training courses carried out (other than the master's degree), related to the research lines of the doctorate program (10%).
  • Motivated letter where the student explains, in a reasoned manner, his interest in being admitted to the program (5%).
  • Accreditation of a level B1 of English (5%).

Once the documentation has been presented, the Academic Committee of the Program will proceed with the selection of candidates applying the above criteria.

The procedure and criteria for admission of the program comply with the provisions of Article 6 of RD 99/2011 . Thus, the Academic Committee of the program will ensure that students with special educational needs, derived from disability, have adequate support and counseling services and will evaluate the need for possible curricular adaptations, itineraries or alternative studies.


The university valid recognitions.

Doctorate in Computer Technology and environmental Engineering

Accoding to the Royal Decree 99/2011, of January 28, which regulates the official teachings of Doctorate in UCAM, whose purpose is to allow the classification, comparability and transparency of the qualifications of Higher Education in the Spanish education system.

To complete the regulatory framework set out in Royal Decree 22/2015, of 23 January, this Royal Decree has as its object the regulation of the requirements and the procedure for the issuance of the European supplement to the title of Doctor obtained according to the official teachings of Doctorate regulated in Royal Decree 1393/2007, of October 29, and Royal Decree 99/2011, of January 28, in order to promote the mobility of graduates in the European Higher Education Area, including the expedition of the European supplements to the titles of Doctor of the Erasmus Mundus program and successive.

In turn, the following mentions and regulations are introduced: International Doctorate and Industrial Doctorate. The international co-supervision diligence is also introduced in the official university degree of Doctor. The social reality in which university graduates have to operate makes it necessary for the Government to regulate the mentions and requirements of the International Doctorate and Industrial Doctorate, as well as the international co-supervision diligence to guarantee the rights of Spanish university graduates in the European Space of Higher education.


Details of the accademic intitute
