IQS is strongly committed to educational quality and has established different processes to ensure continuous improvement through the IQS School of Engineering Quality Committee, a Quality department and a Quality Manual.
In 1995 a Quality Management Department was established at IQS School of Engineering; initially, the focus was on the technical services IQS offers industries, companies, and administrations. Since the year 2000, a large part of its actions has been aimed at implementing a quality system in the teaching field.
The manual of the Internal Quality Assurance System (SGIC in Spanish) from the IQS School of Engineering of Universitat Ramon Llull (URL) was presented to AQU (University Quality Agency) for approval in the 2009 AUDIT meeting and was accepted on 22 April 2010. The Quality Evaluation Commission of AQU Catalonia met on 11 December 2012 and ratified the extension of the SGIC design to consider affiliation of the IQS School of Engineering for the AUDIT program.
The Master’s Degree in Chemical Engineering will enable students to work as professionals in the chemical industry or similar industries. In these industries, chemical engineers carry out different functions such as: basic engineering, installations maintenance, general management, R&D coordination, and production management, among many others.
Students will be able to set up their own company or work as a researcher or professor in academic institutions.
IQS has a Career Service Office that helps students from the Master’s Degree in Chemical Engineering with their job search once they have completed the programme.
