The Governing Council of the ULPGC, in session on 23rd April, approved the new master's degree proposed by the IUMA called "Master's Degree in Electronics and Applied Digital Technology (METDA)".

The Master's degree offers 30 places for new students and its objective is to cover a real and current social demand in the field of electronics, microelectronics and its multiple applications in the business sector.

The main novelty of this Master's Degree is the incorporation of dual training for its students in important national and international technology companies, which will allow a great job projection for its graduates.

This is the first dual mode master's degree to be taught at the ULPGC, which is a challenge for the teaching team and a magnificent opportunity for its graduates to enter the world of work in two ways:

  • Research areas that allow direct access to the Telecommunications and Computer Engineering doctoral programme.
  • Training contracts with national and international technology companies.

The master's degree aims to train professionals in the necessary skills to generate added value for society and contribute to the diversification of the local economy. It is also intended to support, from a global point of view, national and European development in the chip design sector and to contribute to facing the main challenges affecting the knowledge society.

After the subsequent verification by the Canarian Agency for University Quality (ACCUEE) and the Canarian Government, the METDA is expected to be implemented for the next academic year 2024/2025.
