The Department of Telematics of the University Carlos III of Madrid repeats its high score in the ranking of university degrees published by EL MUNDO newspaper
08 May 2013
The Telematics Engineering degree of the University Carlos III of Madrid (UC3M) leads the Top 50 University Degrees ranking published by ‘El Mundo’ newspaper in May.
The Department of Telematics, running the Ph.D. program in Telematics at the University Carlos III of Madrid (UC3M) deserved a special mention in said ranking: “The academic model ensures that more than half the teaching time is devoted to laboratory practice and problem resolution in groups of less than 40 students and that at least four sessions are conducted in groups of fewer than 20 students”. As an outcome of its commitment to internationalization and research, the UC3M has a broad-scope cooperation agreement in place with Institute IMDEA Networks, which includes the provision of this postgraduate program for their aspiring professional scientific investigators. Most of the Institute's English-speaking Pre-Doc Researchers joined the ranks of doctorate candidates of the UCM3, leveraging the high level of bilingualism already attained by that University.
11 out of 16 degrees imparted by UC3M scored amongst the top five positions in El Mundo’s Top 50 University Degrees ranking. The UC3M leads the ranking with the degrees in Telematics Engineering, Business Administration and Finance and Accountancy, and scores second with Law, Economics and Labor Relations.
Moreover, UC3M is the third best university in the Telecommunication Systems Engineering, Telecommunication Technical Engineering and Electrical Engineering fields. It also ranks fifth in the Journalism and Computer Science degrees.
Combining the results for these bachelor degrees, the UC3M ranks 7th in the ranking of universities, where 47 higher education institutions have earned a place. About 80% of the universities selected are public institutions.
In its thirteenth edition, the ranking lists the most highly rated universities in each of the 50 degrees most demanded by the students. The survey was based on ratings of teachers, publicly available data, information provided by the universities, as well as other third-party surveys.
