More information

The Spanish Ministry of Education has launched its annual call for “collaboration grants”. These grants are intended for first-year master students who wish to carry out collabora have work with university departments in research activity or in practices related to their studies.

The UPC Research Group in Discrete, Combinatorial and Computational Geometry is willing to incorporate a student with a collaboration grant. You can find information on our research group through this link: https://dccg.upc.edu/

Applications

In order to apply for one of these grants, you must submit a collaboration project with a university department. If you are interested, we will discuss and write the project with you.

 

Requirements for applicants

  1. To be enrolled in all the courses or ECTS corresponding to the first semester of the first year of the master.
  2. To have obtained the following total grade in your bachelor studies:
  • 7,25 points if your previous studies were in Engineering or Architecture
  • 7,70 points if in Sciences or Social Sciences
  • 7,80 points if in Health Sciences
  • 8,00 points if in Arts and Humanities

The mean grade is computed as follows:

  • Honors (MH) = 10 points
  • Excellent (Sobresaliente) = 9 points
  • Remarkable (Notable) = 7,5 points
  • Pass (Aprobado) = 5,5 points
  • Fail (Suspenso o No presentado) = 2,5 punts
  • “Apto” (a Spanish grade for courses that have been waived) does not count

Grade_of_a_course = (points * course_number_of_credits) / (total_number_of_credits)
