Enrolment

Once the student has been admitted, the student must enrol in the PhD Programme each academic year by the dates specified.

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 email 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-Enrollment system and follow the steps to pay the academic tuition ("Tutela Académica") fee and do not select thesis defence ("Tesis Doctoral").

For further information, please see the University Self-Enrollment web page.
