Courses in English

Our 4-Year Bachelor program in Computer Science Engineering has a specific group where courses are instructed in English. Incoming Master students can also take those courses (special from the final year) upon approval from both the sending institution and the UCM.

Master courses are usually instructed in Spanish. However, some modules have a reduced number of students and professors offer teaching materials and one-to-one office hours in English. Master students can also work on different topics to complete a master project with the advise of a UCM professor. Contact our International Student Office for more information about the master program.

Please note that in case you are interested in coming to our school as an Exchange Student, you need to be officially nominated by your Home University, so please contact your local coordinators first for more detailed information on the process.
