Old MASTEM

This is the MASTEAM master's degree for students that applied before the 2015-2016 season. If you are planning to apply to this master please visit the revisited version here.

MASTEAM has recently changed from the 2 years (120 ECTS) format to 1  year (60 ECTS), to adapt it to the 4-year Bachelor Degrees, due to the change from the 3+2 model to the 4+1 model.

Therefore, the "old" MASTEAM is entering an extinction phase, following the legal requirements (pending confirmation of authorities, but we do not expect changes), as follows:

  • Spring 2015: 4A, 4B, 5A and 5B courses are offered normally.
  • Autumn 2015: 4B, 5A and 5B courses are offered. No teaching of 4A courses will be offered, but there will be an extraordinary exam of 4A.
  • Spring 2016: 5A and 5B courses are offered. No teaching of 4A nor 4B courses will be offered, but there will be an extraordinary exam of 4A  or 4B. This is the final chance to pass 4A courses.
  • Autumn 2016: 5B courses are offered. No teaching of 4B nor 5A courses will be offered, but there will be an extraordinary exam of 4B or 5A. This is the final chance to pass 4B courses.
  • Spring 2017: No teaching will be offered, but there will be an extraordinary exam of 5A or 5B. This is the final chance to pass 5A courses.
  • Autumn 2017: No teaching will be offered, but there will be an extraordinary exam of 5B. This is the final chance to pass 5B.

Regarding the 5A optional specializations, the School has decided to offer the Telecommunication Services and Networks specialization on Autumn 2015, and the Telecommunication Policies and Business Management specialization on Spring 2016. In both cases, this will be the last chance for enrolling in these courses, but there will still be two additional opportunities of extraordinary exams (with no teaching). The compulsory part of 5A (Management and Society) will be offered in both Autumn 2015 and Spring 2016 as usual.

Regarding the 5B optional courses, you can find the current offer here. In 2016/2017, the following courses will be offered:

  • Autumn 2016: Architecture for content protection (3.5 ECTS credits), Creativity and Engineering (3.5 ECTS credits). This will be the last chance to enrol in 5B optional courses.

Please also note that since the Master Thesis belongs to 5B, the deadline for finishing the thesis will be the end of Autumn 2017 semester; this is, January-February 2018.

In case you want to migrate your studies to the new MASTEAM, you can do it at any time during the extinction phase. In that case, the correspondence between the old and the new courses is:
