Undergraduate Degree in Computer Engineering and Information Technology(*)
Loyola University Andalusia offers an engineering degree program in computer sciences: The Undergraduate Degree in Computer Engineering and Information Technology.
In this degree the student acquires standard competencies in Computer Engineering as described in the Royal Crown decree on 4 August 2009, which allows students to access the required professional Master´s in Computer Engineering in our country. This degree, along with the complementary Master’s, has a generalized character with a variety of career prospects in a range of fields and strong international projection.
Additionally, this degree taught at Loyola University Andalusia develops from the beginning many specific competencies geared towards simulations and videogames. The video gaming industry has grown spectacularly over the last two decades, with more than 100 billion dollars (85 M Euros) in revenues in 2014. The most expensive launch of 2014, Destiny, had production costs of more than 500M $, more than any other film or entertainment in history.
This sector is organized at two different levels: the major product launches, like the aforementioned example, and small companies who create smaller projects covering a wide range of applications and uses. Examples of technologies included in this group are social networks, mobile apps, custom tailored apps, educational software, training, rehabilitation, software components, simulators for science and investigation and many more. Spain plays an important role in both sectors, such as the pioneering company Next Limit, among others.
The Engineer in Computer Sciences and Information Technology is a well-qualified, creative professional with professional competencies in the following areas:
- Computer system design
- Simulation design and programming
- Networks, Communications and Operating Systems
