“Credit recognition” is understood as the acceptance of ECTS credits by an university. Those credits that must have 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 earned for participating in cultural, sport, student representation, solidarity and cooperation university activities, for knowledge of languages, for non-university studies, for specialisation 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 programme.
In the Bachelor’s Degree in Telecommunication Technologies Engineering, under RD 1393/2007 (consolidated text of 3rd June 2016), a maximum of 6 elective credits can be recognised 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 performed throughout the student stay at the university and that it is given by:
- Area of Linguistic Normalisation of the University of Vigo.
- Language Centre of the University of Vigo.
- University language centre accredited by the European Confederation of Language Centres in Higher Education (CERCLES).
- Official language school or equivalent official centre in another country. Students will request the recognition of credits at the center where the degree they wish to be recognised is imparted, presenting the certificate/diploma of the activity with an indication of the amount 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 recognised.

For higher vocational training (FP)
If you come from a higher education cycle, you can consult in the validations page of the Xunta de Galicia the catalogue of credits and courses recognised in the official university degrees for graduates in higher vocational training:
You have to apply for credit recognition for GETT at the School of Telecommunication Engineering.

Recognition of courses between different official degrees.
For work and professional experience, degrees and 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 amount of credits that is at least the 15 percent of the total amount of credits of the degree (36 ECTS), corresponding to basic training courses of the branch, will be subject of recognition.
The rest of the credits may be recognised by the university, taking into account the adequacy between the skills and knowledge acquired, either in other courses 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) will be recognised.

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 will have their work in the previous degrees recognised, according to the recognition procedure shown in the document linked below.
Curricular adaptation of the Telecommunication Technical Engineering to the 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 as elective modules, in the proportion approved by the Academic Committee.
