Transversal competences
  • T1_That students know a third language, which will be preferably English, with an adequate level of oral and written form, according to the needs of the graduates in each degree


The Final Degree Project (TFG) must be understood as the culmination of the studies leading to the obtaining of the graduate degree. It involves the student carrying out a project, study and / or work in which a good part of the knowledge, skills and abilities acquired during the studies are applied, integrated and developed. 

The TFG can be a research work and / or a project to create a computer application, an information system (or part of it), a computer network or any product specific to the attributions of an Engineer. Computer.   

There are three types of TFGs:

  • The TFGs proposed by the Faculty of the Degree
  • The TFGS proposed jointly by collaborating companies and professors from some of the areas of work of the Faculty
  • The TFGs proposed by the students, who must pass an assessment phase to determine their suitability or not as a TFG of the Degree

The student will have to prepare a report and defend his / her work before an Evaluation Court.  

Learning outcomes

The TFG itself carried out by the student, is in itself the materialization of the expected learning outcomes for this particular subject. Specifically, the work that the student will have to defend will have to demonstrate his capacity for

  • Integrate, relate and synthesize all the knowledge acquired in the subjects of the degree
  • Describe and adjust to a work plan and its timing
  • Write a report of the Final Degree Project, which describes in detail the process and the result of the project carried out.

Since one of the evaluative acts of the TFG is the defense before a court, it is also necessary to consider as a result of learning

  • Present in a convincing way the work carried out and answer with precision the questions that this one can raise to the Evaluating Court

Working methodology

This subject does not have face-to-face classes of any kind. It will be the student himself who will decide the work methodology that best suits his needs and those of the TFG he develops.


Due to its uniqueness, there are no regulated or established contents for this subject given its nature of synthesis of the whole Degree. In this sense it can be said that all the contents of the Degree are potential contents of the Final Degree Project (TFG). In addition, it is also expected that in some cases the student goes beyond the regulated contents of the Degree and advances towards others that by their nature (advanced beyond the level of Degree, own of areas of knowledge that are not specifically those covered by the Degree, etc.) have not been considered in the other subjects that make up the Degree Curriculum. 

As mentioned in the previous paragraph, all those that affect the elaboration of the Report of the TFG and its presentation before the Evaluation Court will be considered own contents of the subject.

Learning activities

Most of the learning activities will have to be carried out by the student in a non-contact way since the TFG is a work carried out autonomously. Depending on the type of work to be carried out, the Academic Tutor may propose to the student that he / she attend seminars and / or courses, that he / she search for and read critically certain articles of a scientific nature, etc. 

Periodically, the student will be able to meet with his Academic Tutor in order to analyze the work done so far, plan the next actions, discuss possible alternatives, etc.

The elaboration of the report of the work will be a main activity of the TFG. The student will have to elaborate

  • A preliminary project 
  • A first version of the working memory 
  • A definitive version of the working memory.

These three documents will provide evidence of the achievement of those learning outcomes most related to the communication skills of the Degree.

On the other hand, the presentation and defense of the work done before an Evaluation Tribunal should also be considered a core activity of the TFG, in some way equivalent to an examination. This presentation will seek to gather evidence of all the learning outcomes mentioned in the corresponding section

All these learning activities, including the elaboration of the TFG itself, are related, to a greater or lesser extent, to all the competencies of the degree, except for two: the one that affects the ability to work within a group. (T2), since the TFG is individual; and that which affects knowledge arising from general secondary education (B1), as the TFG is projected towards advanced knowledge. 

From a MECES perspective, the TFG covers all points of the second level: a) Acquisition of advanced knowledge; b) Acquisition of a work methodology; c) Application of the acquired knowledge; d) Understanding of knowledge; e) collection and interpretation of data and information; f) development in complex situations or those that require the development of new solutions; g) know how to communicate and h) identify their own training needs. 


Evaluation system

The evaluation of the TFG consists of two large blocks, the part corresponding to the Academic Tutor of the TFG (30%) and the part corresponding to the Evaluation Court of the TFG (70%). 

More specifically and with regard to the part corresponding to the Academic Tutor:

  • 10% will depend on the evaluation of a preliminary project that the student will have to deliver
  • 10% will depend on the evaluation of the first version of the working report (the intermediate report)
  • 10% will depend on the evaluation of the final documentation (the final report) 

This part of the evaluation will be based on public rubrics and will take into account aspects related to:

  • Documentation format
  • Writing style
  • Spelling and grammar correction
  • Definition of the object of the work
  • Definition of objectives and scope of work
  • Previous study (state of the art, markets, etc.)
  • Definition of the methodology 
  • Definition of functional and technological requirements where applicable
  • Planning and budgeting
  • Feasibility analysis when appropriate
  • Bibliography and citations

Regarding the part of the evaluation that depends on the Evaluation Court:

  • 7% will correspond to the formal assessment of the report
  • 7% will correspond to the formal assessment of the public presentation
  • 56% will correspond to the assessment of the work done, taking into account the defense made by the student
