“Credit recognition” is understood as the acceptance of ECTS credits that, having been obtained in official education, in the same or another university, are computed in other universities for the purpose of obtaining an official degree. ECTS credits may also be recognized for participation in university cultural, sports, student representation, solidarity and cooperation activities, for knowledge of languages, for non-university studies, for own degrees and for work and professional experience.

At the EET you can also earn elective credits for your participation in cross-cutting training activities within our orientaTE program.

In the Bachelor’s Degree in Telecommunication Technologies Engineering, under RD 1393/2007 (consolidated text of June 3, 2016), a maximum of 6 elective credits can be recognized for carrying out university cultural, sports, student representation, solidarity and cooperation activities, and a maximum of 6 credits for language training.

Concerning the recognition of elective credits for language training, it is necessary that the training is carried out throughout the student’s stay at the university and that it is given by:

  • Area of Linguistic Normalization of the University of Vigo.  
  • Language Center of the University of Vigo.  
  • University language center accredited by the European Confederation of Language Centers in Higher Education (CERCLES).
  • Official language school or equivalent official center in another country. Students will request the recognition of credits at the center where the degree they wish to be recognized, presenting the certificate/diploma of the activity with an indication of the number of hours of the course.

Concerning the recognition of elective credits for university activities, please consult our orientaTE program, where your participation in cross-cutting EET training activities is recognized.

Recognition of subjects between different official degrees.
By work and professional experience and by own qualifications. By external extracurricular internships

Provided that the degree of origin belongs to the same branch of knowledge as the Bachelor’s Degree in Telecommunication Technologies Engineering (Engineering), a number of credits that is at least 15 percent of the total number of credits of the degree (36 ECTS), corresponding to basic training courses of the branch, will be subject to recognition.

The rest of the credits may be recognized by the university taking into account the adequacy between the skills and knowledge acquired, either in other subjects or teachings taken by the student or associated with a previous professional experience and those provided in the curriculum to what they have a cross-cutting nature.

In no case, the course corresponding to the Final Degree Project (TFG) may be recognized.

Adaptation to the Bachelor’s Degree from LRU degrees

The students who, starting their studies in any of the degrees taught in the EET that were extinguished with the entry into the European Higher Education Area, decide to request their incorporation into the new degree, summer recognized their work in the previous degrees according to the recognition procedure shown in the document linked from the button below.

Curricular adaptation of Telecommunication Technical Engineering to Bachelor’s Degree

A student who accesses the Bachelor’s Degree through this route would only have to take the fourth academic year to obtain the Bachelor’s Degree. The modules that a student of this profile would have to take would be 30 ECTS of the modules of Electives, Engineering Projects (18 ECTS) and Final Degree Project (12 ECTS). The professional experience after graduation as a telecommunications engineer may be validated by part of two Elective modules, in the proportion approved by the Academic Committee.
