Students must have:
  • A solid foundation in maths, physics, chemistry, and technical drawing; good observation and analytical skills; the ability to quickly perform numerical calculations and resolve quantifiable problems; and possess abstract and logical reasoning skills.
  • We also recommend students have a basic understanding of English, equivalent to that needed for baccalaureate and university entrance (EBAU) exams
  • Finally, we would like to stress that manual skills will be needed throughout the course, and once finished, in order to operate machinery
  • We also highly value the following personal traits: showing initiative, the ability to work in a team, personal autonomy, working well under pressure, leadership skills, showing responsibility and interest in putting theory into practice for real-world problems
  • Likewise, it is important to be able to use mathmatical models to establish a relationship between observable reality and the description of this reality
