Once the student has been admitted, the student must enrol in the Master by the dates specified. Students must make sure that they comply with the Master in Software and Systems restrictions on the choice of optional subjects.

Students may enrol on-line or at the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros Informáticos Postgraduate office.

The process to enrol online is:

  1. First, you must obtain credentials by opening a new UPM e-mail account (if you already have this email account, you may skip to the second step). Your initial password is the university PIN, which consists of the four digits corresponding to the student’s day and month of birth. We recommend changing your PIN after this step.
  2. Next, you must request an appointment.
  3. Finally, you must log in to the Self-Enrolment system and follow the steps to pay the fees.

For further information, please see the University Self-Enrolment web page or contact to Postgraduate office.
