Abstract:Because of the current change situation within the framework of Higher Education in Spain, which is aimed to adapt it to the Higher Education European Area, it is necessary to perform a transformation in the current degree in Industrial Engineering. This transformation involves the creation of a first Graduate degree in Industrial Technologies followed by a Master’s degree in Industrial Engineering, which will provide the students with the career attributions of the current Industrial Engineer. That is the reason why a plan has been carried out, which compiles the information needed to facilitate the development of the new corresponding Graduate and Master’s degrees curricula, meeting the ministerial orders regulating these degrees. This essay shows an abstract of the competences promoted by the teachers in charge of the current Industrial Engineering degree, as well as the importance they attach to these competences within each framework. It also links the competences with the training activities performed to achieve them. It has been collected during the carrying out of this essay the information concerning the specific and general competences as well as the training activities performed to achieve them in 60 different subjects including both compulsory and elective subjects from the different specialities. 23 generic competences, over 500 specific competences and 12 kinds of training activities used in the lerning process have been defined and linked to different activities.
Keywords: development of degree curricula, industrial engineering, competences, training.
