Degree in Information Systems Engineering


The Information Systems Engineering degree at UAX is structured over four years, and teaches the professional skills required to meet the needs for information capture, recovery, processing, presentation and interaction of modern organisations. The application of new technologies has already transformed corporate and government systems for accessing and managing information, reaching all areas of society, leading to the so-called Information Society and offering wide scope for developing new trade and business models. 


In a context where Web-oriented systems are increasingly important, the UAX Information Systems Engineering degree prepares students for conceiving computer systems to support current business processes, and in particular, those based on web-system oriented technology and ubiquitous devices such as PDAs, Smartphones, etc. 


In the Computer Systems laboratory students can develop integrated information systems, and applications to manage and support current business processes.

In the Corporate Applications laboratory, students can carry our practical work with integrated business management tools such as SAP.

In the Information System technologies lab, they can practice with various database management systems such as Oracle and MySQL. This laboratory can also be used for the security checks and actions which should be carried out in any computer system.


The teaching staff consists of lecturers of accredited prestige, who combine teaching with their professional experience in leading companies involved in the development of new information and communications technologies.

Unique Features

UAX Information Systems Engineering students are capable of administering the most important computer elements which make up and configure information systems, such as networks and databases, with special attention paid to the development of websites designed to become online showcases for companies.

This methodology is reinforced and complemented by internships in leading industry companies, encouraging mobility, guiding students in their professional and academic paths, as well as company days and visits with corporations such as Indra, Telefónica and Entel.

With regard to Information Systems, managing technological elements and the current situation of online marketing and business, students will attend talks by professionals from companies in the sector, such as Microsoft Ibérica and Google. It is also planned to hold competitions to reward the most innovative and entrepreneurial ideas.

Employment Opportunities

Information Systems Engineering graduates work as corporate system architects, business and e-business process analysts, in enterprise resource planning (ERP), as specialists in auditing and standardisation systems, as technology consultants and as managers of web technology-based information systems.

Also, many companies have created the post of CIO or Chief Information Officer, forming part of the managerial level alongside the Chief Executive Officer, (CEO) the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and the Chief Technical Officer.
