GII Majors

The degree in Computer Engineering, will provide you the necessary knowledges to analyse, design, develop, keep and manage systems, services, applications and computer architectures. Besides, it will allow you achieve experience in new methods and technologies of the field of the TIC.

The Polytechnic School of the University of Alicante is one of the Spanish universities that offers the 5 majors:

Major 1. Software Engineering

You will learn to build software systems that answer to the needs of the users and the companies, reliable and efficient, and to manage to the people, the resources and the stages of the project from the definition of the needs of the customer until the construction and the deployment of the system. 


  • Capacity to develop, keep and evaluate services and systems software that satisfy all the requirements of the user and comport of reliable and efficient form, are affordable to develop and keep and fulfil norms of quality, applying the theories, principles, methods and practical of the Engineering of the Software.
  • Capacity to value the needs of the customer and specify the requirements software to satisfy these needs, reconciling objective in conflict by means of the research of acceptable commitments inside the derivative limitations of the cost, of the time, of the existence of systems already developed and of the own organisations.
  • Capacity to give solution to problems of integration in function of the strategies, standard and available technologies.
  • Capacity to identify and analyse problems and design, develop, implement, verify and document solve software on the base of a suitable knowledge of the theories, models and current technicians.
  • Capacity to identify, evaluate and manage the potential risks associated that they could present.
  • Capacity to design appropriate solutions in one or more commands of application using methods of the engineering of the software that integrate ethical appearances, social, legal and economic.


Major 2. Computer Engineering

You will form you in the design of computers and digital devices that integrate hardware, software and communications: supercomputadores, mobile telephones, reproductores mp3, medical equipment, robots or systems of processing of image.


  • Capacity to design and build digital systems, including computers, systems based in microprocessor and systems of communications.
  • Capacity to develop specific processors and systems bedded, as well as develop and optimise the software of said systems.
  • Capacity to analyse and evaluate architectures of computers, including parallel platforms and distributed, as well as develop and optimise software for the same.
  • Capacity to design and implement software of system and of communications.
  • Capacity to analyse, evaluate and select the platforms hardware and software more adapted for the support of applications bedded and of real time.
  • Capacity to understand, apply and manage the guarantee and security of the computer systems.
  • Capacity to analyse, evaluate, select and configure platforms hardware for the development and execution of applications and computer services.
  • Capacity to design, deploy and manage networks of computers.


Major 3. Informatics

You will achieve the scientific foundations and technicians for the design of efficient solutions to the challenges of computation in artificial intelligence, bioinformatics, virtual reality and a lot of other fields.


  • Capacity to have a deep knowledge of the fundamental principles and models of the computation and know them apply to interpret, select, value, modelar, and create new concepts, theories, uses and technological developments related with the computing.
  • Capacity to know the theoretical foundations of the programming languages and the technicians of lexical processing, syntactic and semantic associated, and know apply them for the creation, design and processing of languages.
  • Capacity to evaluate the computational complexity of a problem, know algorithmic strategies that can drive to his resolution and recommend, develop and implement that that guarantee the best performance in accordance with the requirements established.
  • Capacity to know the foundations, paradigms and own technicians of the intelligent systems and analyse, design and build systems, services and computer applications that use said technical in any field of application.
  • Capacity to achieve, obtain, formalise and represent the human knowledge in a form computable for the resolution of problems by means of a computer system in any field of application, particularly the related with appearances of computation, perception and performance in environments or intelligent surroundings.
  • Capacity to develop and evaluate interactive systems and of presentation of complex information and his application to the resolution of problems of design of interaction person computer.
  • Capacity to know and develop technicians of computational learning and design and implement applications and systems that use them, including the devoted to automatic extraction of information and knowledge from big volumes of data.


Major 4. Information Systems

You will specialise you in the improvement of the processes of the organisations with the use of technologies of the information to reach his strategies and his aims, so that they are more efficient, innovative and competitive.


  • Capacity to integrate solutions of Technologies of the Information and the Communications and business processes to satisfy the needs of information of the organisations, allowing them reach his aims of effective and efficient form, giving them like this competitive advantages.
  • Capacity to determine the requirements of the systems of information and communication of an organisation attending to appearances of security and fulfillment of the rule and the valid legislation.
  • Capacity to participate actively in the specification, design, implementation and maintenance of the systems of information and communication.
  • Capacity to understand and apply the principles and practical of the organisations, so that they can be the link between the technical communities and the management of an organisation and participate actively in the training of the users.
  • Capacity to comprise and apply the principles of the evaluation of risks and apply them properly in the preparation and execution of plans of performance.
  • Capacity to comprise and apply the principles and the technicians of management of the quality and of the technological innovation in the organisations.


Major 5. Information Technologies

You will form in the design and the installation of computer networks and of the necessary applications to satisfy, of safe form, the needs of the organisations.


  • Capacity to comprise the surroundings of an organisation and his needs in the field of the technologies of the information and the communications.
  • Capacity to select, design, deploy, integrate, evaluate, build, manage, explode and keep the technologies of hardware, software and networks, inside the parameters of cost and quality adapted.
  • Capacity to use methodologies centred in the user and the organisation for the development, evaluation and management of applications and systems based in technologies of the information that ensure the accessibility, ergonomics and usability of the systems.
  • Capacity to select, design, deploy, integrate and manage networks and infrastructures of communications in an organisation.
  • Capacity to select, deploy, integrate and manage systems of information that satisfy the needs of the organisation, with the criteria of cost and quality identified.
  • Capacity to conceive systems, applications and services based in technologies of network, including Internet, web, e-commerce, multimedia, interactive services and mobile computation.
  • Capacity to comprise, apply and manage the guarantee and security of the computer systems.
