Master Materiales Compuestos

Master organized by the Polytechnic University of Madrid in collaboration with AIRBUS



Master's Structure

• The Master may be completed in 1 or 2 years.
• The Master is organized in Modules that last
from 2 to 4 weeks.
• Each Module is divided into several lectures
taught intensively
Monday thru Thursday in
the afternoon (17:00 to 21:00).
Lectures will be given in English | Spanish.
Handouts and other course materials are
written in English.
• Registration for independent modules is only
accepted under special circumstances.

Group discussion and evaluations

• One of our main concerns is to promote the
active participation of the students, not only
for them to collect information.
• After each module is finished, a practical
is proposed to the students, which
has to be solved individually or in groups and
then discussed in the classroom.
• This approach requires the students to revise
their notes, think about, get involved and to
learn how to face real problems. More than
10% of the time is allocated to this activity.

Master Thesis

•To be done after the lectures completion.
• Agreements have been reached with AIRBUS
and other industries and research centres, to
do the Thesis at their facilities. Acceptance is
done by the industry on a case by case basis.
• This Master Course is offered as a Diploma
of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid
• Total fees for the Master are 9.900 €.
