Mobility

A key priority of the Higher Polytechnic School (EPS) is the internationalisation of our studies and students. The School seeks to attract qualified foreign students to increase the plurality of working teams and improve students’ skills and competences. It also aims to provide students with the tools necessary to help them become excellent professionals at an international level.

To reach these objectives are offered different training pathways and mobility programmes which can be chosen according to the students’ needs. They can choose among the following pathways and programmes:

Administration of the Doble Degree

Principal contacts regarding the Double Degree are:

  • Bandung: Muhamad A. Martoprawiro. Chair of Master Program in Computational Science of Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences (muhamad@chem.itb.ac.id).
 
  • UdL: Juan Enrique Garrido Navarro. Coordinator of the Master's Degree in Informatics Engineering from the Higher Polytechnic School.

Presentation

The double degree was created to provide a possibility for students of the two universities (University of Lleida-EPS and Institut Teknologi Bandung-ITB) to obtain a second qualification at a foreign university and face their future working challenges with more options for success by opening the doors of the European and Asian working market. This double degree will offer students of both universities the opportunity to study for at least an academic year (10 months or 2 semesters) at another university and obtain the qualifications of both universities.

Additionally, carrying out a double degree at a foreign university means that students will have to face the challenge of moving and staying abroad for at least a year. This can be a determining factor for meeting the requirements set by the European Higher Education Area, whose main objective is to train professionals capable of working efficiently in any country.

Training pathway

To obtain a double degree, 109.5 ECTS credits must be taken in four semesters: students will spend the 1st and 4th semesters at the home university, and the 2nd and the 3rd semesters at the host university.

Complementary mandatory training, carried out at the host university, is described later. Passing this complementary training and obtaining the required credits at the home university will result in the award of the Double Master’s Degree in Informatics Engineering – Master’s Degree in Computational Science.

1.Students from the ITB of Bandung

To obtain the Master’s Degree in Informatics Engineering of the UdL (MEINF), students from the ITB of Bandung will have to pursue the following MEINF subjects at the UdL:

Upon completion of the courses at UdL and recognition of the passed credits at ITB students will obtain the Master’s Degree in Informatics Engineering.

2. Students from the UdL

Students from the UdL who wish to obtain both degrees will have to take the mandatory courses of the MEINF and the equivalence to 50 ECTS credits at the ITB of Bandung. The subjects that must be taken and the study periods are listed below:

The Master thesis (TFM-UdL) must be completed during the last semester at ITB. The Master thesis (TFM-UdL) could be co-advised by professors from both institutions and must be defended in front of an academic comision at UdL. Upon completion of the courses at UdL and recognition of the passed credits at ITB students will obtain the Master’s Degree in Informatics Engineering.

Realization and Reading of the Master’s Thesis

In regard to realizing and reading the Master’s thesis (MT), the following aspects must be taken into consideration:

  • The thesis may have a research orientation, in which case the report will follow the structure of an academic paper (methodology, theoretical and empirical part, conclusions, recommendations and bibliography), or it may be more oriented towards a company, in which case the report will have to include an economic study.
  • The thesis will be carried out and defended at the home university in the last semester.
  • The thesis is worth 12 ECTS credits.

Support of exchange students

The following aspects are agreed:

1. With respect to applications for entering the programme:

  • If the number of applications overcomes the maximum number of students, the institutions will choose the candidates.
  • Each institution will publish on its website a calendar of applications and admission letters.
  • Students will have to demonstrate the minimum level of English, TOEFL 80 (Internet-based test) or TOEFL 550 (paper-based test), equivalent to B1, although higher levels are recommended.

2. With respect to the preparation of exchange, the host university will:

  • Facilitate the details of subjects and courses to study, as well as teaching methods.
  • Organize a welcome programme for the students who take part in the double degree to provide them with information about living and studying in a new country.
  • The institutions will ensure the integration of foreign students into a new academic, social and cultural environment

4. Students who take part in the programme between the two institutions will have the following economic conditions:

  • Enrolment: students involved in the programme will enrol in the host university without paying any cost.
  • Accommodation is arranged by the destination university and financed by the student.
  • Travel: students will cover all international and national expenses.
  • Books and other teaching materials (printing, copies): students will cover their own expenses.
  • Students who take part in the programme will cover other daily expenses.
  • Students may apply for calls to obtain travel and stay grants. Students are encouraged to pay close attention to the deadlines that correspond with the period of stay for which they require funding.

Students’ rights and duties

During the exchange period the students will have the same rights and duties as the other mobility students. Throughout their stay at the host university, the students will take assessment tests in the subjects they are enrolled in at the host university, according to the assessment requirements of corresponding subjects.

Issuing and delivery of qualifications

The host institution will issue a corresponding qualification after having received information from the home institution demonstrating that the student has passed all subjects established in the syllabus of the home institution and have passed the host university courses described in the section “training pathway” of the certified document.

In the case of the Spanish qualification, the students from the ITB will be informed to pay a fee established by the Spanish Government for issuing the certificate.

ITB Institut Teknologi Bandung

UTB

The Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) was founded on 2 March 1959. Its campus is host to the first engineering schools in Indonesia

In 1920 the Technische Hogeschool (TH) was established in Bandung. In the 1940s the School was transformed into Kogyo Daigaku. A short time after the birth of the Republic of Indonesia in 1945, the campus hosted the Technical Faculty (including the Fine Arts department) of University of Indonesia with its headquarters in Jakarta. At the beginning of the 1950s, the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences of the University of Indonesia was also established in the present campus.

In 1959, the present Institut Teknologi Bandung was founded by the Indonesian Government. It was established as a higher education institution of science, technology and art, with the mission to place education and research at the service of society. The ITB is considered as one of the best technology universities in Indonesia and ranked among the best in the world. Bandung, with approximately one and a half million inhabitants, is situated in a mountainous region in the west of Java, and has an altitude of 770 metres. The principal ITB campus in the north of the centre of the city and its other campuses cover a surface of 770.000 square metres.

Indonesia has a tropical climate and its temperatures are relatively constant, with an average of 26 ºC to 28 ºC during the year. The cost of living in Indonesia is quite low. Renting an apartment with a sleeping room may cost between €110 and €260 a month, depending on the location of the apartment. Indonesia offers a vibrant and multicultural atmosphere for international students. Approximately 6.000 international students are studying in Indonesia at the moment. Most come from Malaysia, but many students are also from the Netherlands, Germany, France, Spain, and Japan.
