Grade and post-graduate

Generic Competences

In Bachelor's degrees, a set of generic competences specially linked to the values and skills of development cooperation are worked on. We emphasize that all UPC undergraduate studies contemplate the competences of Sustainability and Social Commitment, Teamwork, and in some cases Languages and Entrepreneurship and Innovation. 


Graduate final project and master thesis

Most of UPC's learning programs include a final stage for practicum and/or Final Project or Master Thesis. In some cases, they can be linked to an experiencie with a cooperation project.
