Master programmes
  • Interuniversity Master in Environmental Hydraulics

This program aims to deepen and research training and professional advanced specialized and multidisciplinary nature in the field of engineering and the management of natural resources.

The first half is entirely developed in the University of Granada. Its objective is to provide the student with basic knowledge and fundamentals of environmental hydraulics. The second half takes place in each of the participating universities according to the specialization chosen by the student, and its objetive is to provide the development of personal skills and deepening of knowledge in the field of environmental hydraulics.

  • Official Master in Geophysics and Meteorology

The Master of geophysics and meteorology aims to provide the students with a basic and methodological training in geophysics and meteorology that allows them to both their initiation in research in related topics and their incorporation into companies that require specialists in various fields of application of geophysics and meteorology. Training in these fields, in which noted a huge training gap at the national level, is directed both to researchers as to technicians who will be dedicated to develop their professional work in fields such as fire prevention, the impact of agricultural planning, weather forecasting, climate change, water management, energy resources wind and solar seismic and volcanic prevention and the application of geophysical methods for exploration geological, archaeological or engineering field, etc.

Taught a course in IISTA:

  1. Advanced techniques in remote sensing of aerosol
  2. Remote sensing, GIS and GPS

  • Official Master in Conservation, Management and Restoration of Biodiversity

This Master’s degree is inscribed as a development of graduate studies of biology, environmental sciences and other grades of experimental and technical sciences of similar characteristics.

This Master aims to bring closer the vision of the international programme DIVERSITAS UNESCO student graduadolicenciado that I may learn to know, value and manage the biological resources we have consistently, encompassing from the basics with a more academic and scientific, to aspects of applied and professional interest.

The four axes of knowledge and action proposed in this Master are:

1. knowledge of the evolution of biodiversity in space and in time to reach the current state.
2. transfer of scientific knowledge to managers and restorers of natural spaces and the politicians.
3. knowledge of how it is changing the existing biodiversity, in good part by the action of human activity, and how it can affect the functioning of the Earth System.
4. awareness of the economic value of natural resources, the services provided by ecosystems and their sustainable use.

Taught a course in IISTA:

  • Ecoinformatics.

  • Interuniversity Master program in Culture of Peace. Conflicts, Education and Human Rights funded by UNESCO.

Its main objective is to train qualified students for the analysis and understanding of present realities and the construction of peaceful futures, providing them with competent intellectual resources to advise institutions and organisations that require it. It is an interdisciplinary degree, which will be taught over an annual academic period.

  • Master in Environmental Management and Biodiversity 

The Master’s Degree in Environmental Management and Biodiversity at the University of Cordoba is a SEMIPRESENTIAL programme and aims to cover, through its three specialisations (Environmental Management, Biodiversity and Sustainable Use of Natural Resources), the demand for technicians who can handle different technological tools for environmental management and quality, environmental planning and prevention, detecting problems and opportunities related to the use and conservation of the environment, the analysis of the main tools for the management and conservation of biodiversity, as well as the application of new energy sources, waste management and energy efficiency. It is also integrated in the Doctoral Programme in Natural Resources and Sustainable Management of the University of Cordoba.

  • Master  in Heritage Management from the Municipality

The three itineraries it consists of (Municipal policies and facilities, Enhancing the value of heritage and Natural heritage and environmental quality) have the fundamental objective of training students to address the analysis of heritage in the territory in order to establish appropriate strategies to preserve and enhance it, responding to the professional profile of the Heritage manager in Europe, one who in an urban or rural territory, with tangible heritage – movable, immovable or natural – and intangible, is part of or coordinates the team of managers involved in the reflection and practical application to preserve and enhance it; whose professional orientation is focused on the analysis of the resources of the territory and on proposing/participating in the implementation of a policy for their development that ensures their valuation and transmission to future generations, applying the acquired knowledge of analysis of the potential of heritage, its use as a factor of development, conservation, dissemination, interpretation, marketing and communication, which allows him/her to participate/coordinate the team in charge of implementing the cultural/heritage policy of the territory.

  • Professional Master in Forestry Engineering

In the current context in which forest areas are developed, characterised to a large extent by the degradation of soils and natural sites due to intense and old exploitation, forest fires and environmental pollution, as well as the emergence of new activities in the natural environment, such as rural tourism or the use of forests as a source of clean and renewable energy, gives a strategic character to the optimisation of natural resources in the forests, where this speciality plays an important role. The training of professionals in this field must evolve to adapt to new circumstances in order to be able to respond effectively to the new functions that 21st century society demands of forestry areas. These new social demands include the need to compensate for climate change, defend the soil, maintain and restore water balances, ensure the continuity of species of flora and wildlife, improve the environment and obtain forest raw materials, both for processing by industry and for direct enjoyment. All this justifies the territorial, environmental, social and economic relevance of forest assets.

  • Master in Mechatronics Engineering

The Master’s Degree in Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Jaén is an official postgraduate degree in high demand in the industrial environment and with excellent employment prospects. Its main objective is to train professionals with multidisciplinary knowledge in technologies such as control, mechanics, electricity, electronics and computer science, enabling them to overcome the engineering challenges posed by modern mechatronic devices. The master’s programme includes the best methods of integral product or process design with the aim of making it more compact, lower cost and with added value in its functionality, quality and performance.

  • Professional Master in Industrial Engineering

The Master’s Degree in Industrial Engineering includes all the competences necessary to acquire the professional attributions of the regulated profession of Industrial Engineer. The Industrial Engineer is a professional with a long tradition and prestige in Spain who, unlike other more specific technical professions, has a multidisciplinary background that allows him/her to tackle problems of a diverse nature.
