Bachelor's Degree in Information Technology >>

Objectives and Competences


These are the generic objectives of this degree:

  • Prepare graduates to cover their field of activity from the academic and professional perspectives as professionals within the context of a society with much wider interests. Thus, graduates should be conscious of the evolution of Computer Science, including its most importante development and tendencies (economic, scientic, legal, political and cultural tendencies) that have configures this field throughout its relatively short existence.
  • Offer a coherent and comprehensive coverage of computer studies. Graduates should develop a reasonable level of understanding in each of the thematic areas and in the mental processes that define the discipline, as well as knowledge of their mutual interrelations.
  • The syllabi should offer the atmosphere in which students may feel ummersed in the ethical and social aspects related to the field of Computer Science. This includes remaining updated with recent theoretical and applied advances, following general rules of the profession, and becoming aware of their capacities and limitations and those of the discipline.
  • Preparing students to apply their knowledge to specific and particular problems and solve them. This includes the capacity to clearly define a problem. determine its level of complexity; decide when it is convenient to consult with external experts; evaluate and choose a solution strategy; study, design, implement, test, modify and document that solution; assess alternatives and undertake risk analysis for that design; integrate alternative technologies in that solution; and transmit that solution to other colleagues, to professionals of different fields and to the general public. This also includes the capacity for working in teams throughout the entire problem solving process.
  • Offer sufficient contact with the wide theoretical corpus supporting Computer science, so students may appreciate the intellectual depths and the abstract aspects that continue challenging future researchers. In this respect, graduates should be aware of the unusually high level of change occuring in technology, the relatively moderate level of growth in computer theory, and the delicate interaction between these two aspects. Thus, graduates should have a solid basis on which to build knowledge and development throughout their entire professional life.


Competences are the set of interrelated knowledge, attitudes, values, abilities and skills, which can be identified and evaluated, and which enable the student to undertake the professional activity according to requirements and standards used in the appropriate occupational area.
