13 June 2012
The Telematics Engineering degree of the Carlos III University of Madrid 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 Carlos III University of Madrid (UC3M) – backed by the Ministry of Education – deserved a special mention in said ranking as “one of the leading departments of the UC3M, and also one of the most successful research fundraisers”. 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 research assistants joined the ranks of doctorate candidates of the UCM3, leveraging the high level of bilingualism already attained by that University.
11 degrees of the Carlos III University of Madrid scored high in El Mundo’s Top 50 University Degrees ranking. The UC3M leads the ranking with the degrees in Telematics Engineering and MBA, and scores second with Economics, Labor Relations, Finance and Accountancy, and Law. Moreover, UC3M is the third best university in the Telecommunication Engineering field, and fourth in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, and Industrial Engineering. It also ranks fifth in the Political Science degree. Combining the results for these 11 degrees, the UC3M ranks eighth in the ranking of universities, where 48 higher education institutions have earned a place. About 80% of the universities selected are public institutions.
In its twelfth 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.
