The Telematics Engineering degree of the University Carlos III of Madrid (UC3M) leads the ranking of Top 50 University Degrees published by ‘El Mundo’ newspaper this month.


The Telematics degree at UC3M is recognized with the international seal EUR-ACE, which certifies that the studies fully comply with the professional requirements of engineering. It also offers the subjects of the first two courses in English. In addition, the classes are taught by a faculty composed of 75% doctors, which guarantees a high educational level.

As an outcome of its commitment to internationalization and research, the UC3M has a broad-scope cooperation agreement in place with IMDEA Networks Institute, which includes the provision of a postgraduate program for the Institute’s aspiring researchers. Most of the Institute's English-speaking research assistants join the ranks of doctorate candidates of the UC3M, leveraging the high level of bilingualism already attained by the University.

Moreover, University Carlos III is the most popular in 13 of the 50 degrees analyzed by 'El Mundo'. With the degrees of Telematics Engineering, Business Administration and Finance and Accounting it occupies the first position, and with Law, Economics, and Electrical Engineering is in second place. It is the third best rated university in the areas of Telecommunications Systems Engineering, Audiovisual Communications and Labor Relations. With the degrees of Engineering, Communication Technology, Mechanical Engineering and Political Science, it ranks fourth in the ranking and, in the case of Computer Engineering, as the fifth.

Combining the results for these degrees, the UC3M ranks seventh in the overall ranking of universities, where 45 higher educational institutions have earned a place. About 80% of the universities selected are public institutions.

In its eighteenth edition, the ranking lists the most highly rated universities in each of the 50 degrees most demanded by the students. The survey was based on ratings of up to 2000 teachers and third-party surveys, such as international rankings or data provided by the National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation of Spain (ANECA).
