Work placement

External work placements

Students at The Centre de la Imatge i la Tecnologia Multimèdia (Image Processing and Multimedia Technology Center) can opt for work placements at the university or in collaborating entities, meaning: companies, professional associations, freelance professionals… through educational cooperation agreements.

Work placements in companies are governed by agreement CG/2020/05/54, July 2nd, 2020, on external work placements adopted the UPC Governing Board.

Academic regulations for external practices

Further information: www.upc.edu/cce

What is an educational cooperation agreement?

Work placements are formalized with the signing of educational cooperation agreements between the student, the university and the hosting company or institution. The administrative management of educational cooperation agreements is done at the CITM.

An educational cooperation agreement entails a stage of professional work experience in a collaborating entity, managed by the Centre, whereby a student learns professional skills and is mentored by skilled professionals. This provides students at The Centre de la Imatge i la Tecnologia Multimèdia (Image Processing and Multimedia Technology Center) with the opportunity to gain a hands-on experience in a professional environment.

When can external work placements be done?

External work placements are not compulsory and can be done mainly during the third and/or fourth years. Overall, these placements last 1,800 hours and may not last longer than 900 hours during a single course year.

Can they have the consideration of bachelor's degree subjects?

There are two kinds of work placements: curricular and extra-curricular.

Curricular placements:they are conceived as academic activities that are included in the course curriculum and are considered just like any other subject, within the range of elective subjects. This means you should enrol for these placements before doing them and they are assessed and graded.

To enrol on curricular placements students are required to have passed at least 120 ECTS in their degree.

In accordance with the current academic regulations for degree studies, the minimum number of elective credits that may be taken as external work placements is 12 ECTS (the equivalent of 360 hours, considering that 1 ECTS is equivalent to 30 hours of placement). If the student enrols at a later stage, the number of credits may be lower.

Extra-curricular placements:Students may, on a voluntary basis, engage in extra-curricular placements during their studies. Their objectives are the same as for curricular placements, but they are not included in the course curriculum. Therefore, it is not necessary to enrol for these placements and they don’t count as degree credits. Nevertheless, they are included in the European Diploma Supplement.

Are placements assessed?

Both for curricular and extra-curricular placements, the student is assigned a tutor in the company and an academic tutor (a teacher from CITM). This ensures that the external placements match the educational goals.

How can students find an entity for their placement?

The CITM has a job bank listing placement offers from different collaborating entities. From all students registered on this bank, the collaborating entity will run a selection process.

If a student independently finds a company or entity offering a placement, the CITM is also able to manage the educational cooperation agreement.

Are these placements paid?

All companies or entities that sign an educational cooperation agreement with the CITM will pay students for their work hours. Placements are paid at a minimum hourly rate of €6.5.
