Why this postgraduate course?
Full-stack web development means knowing both the client (frontend) and the server (backend). This allows a full-stack engineer to develop a web application in its entirety. Due to their versatility, the need for full-stack engineers has been growing steadily over the years.

Full-stack development is a challenge for two reasons. First, due to the great variety of libraries, frameworks, and the myriad ways of developing clients and servers and the databases that go with them. Second, because of the rapid pace at which these techologies evolve, which produce radical innovations every few years. Such dynamic market also makes available educational material and courses obsolete quickly.

This postgraduate course will enable its participants with high technical and managing skills and will provide an up to date and global view of the whole field. To that end, we have strategically chosen a set of concrete languages, tools, libraries and frameworks to successfully demonstrate how to build web applications.
Promoted by:
  • Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya, Departament d'Enginyeria Telematica (ENTEL)
Aims
  • Understanding the complete structure (the full stack) of a web application.
  • Understanding the pros and cons of all available technologies and being able to choose the most appropriate.
  • Know the languages that describe user interfaces in the web platform.
  • Acquire very high skills in modern Typescript.
  • Know how to install, configure and manage servers and databases.
  • Use modern frameworks for web development on the client.
  • Develop mobile applications using web technologies.
Who is it for?
  • Professionals interested in IT who wish to reorient their careers towards development, management or implementation of projects and business ideas using web techologies.
  • IT Professionals who want to quickly update their skills on modern web technologies.
  • Junior IT Professionals who want to deepen their knowledge in web application development.

Lifelong learning studies at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya are approved by the University's Governing Council on an annual basis. (See details appearing on the certificate).

Learning methodology

The teaching methodology of the programme facilitates the student's learning and the achievement of the necessary competences.

The postgraduate sessions will be live online. In these the sessions, students will have the same opportunity for participation as in the face-to-face sessions. The session types in the programme are designed to facilitate the conciliation of the student’s work and personal life.

The programme makes available to students a series of technical resources for the good follow-up of the live online sessions. The platform used allows students to share their desktop screen with the teaching staff in order to resolve queries, carry out group work, etc. An instant messaging group will also be created for students and teachers, for responding to any questions or doubts that may arise.

The programme is designed with a high level of teaching quality to generate student involvement based on good planning, an appropriate pace, and close supervision throughout the programme by the academic management team and teaching staff.



Learning tools
Participatory lectures
A presentation of the conceptual foundations of the content to be taught, promoting interaction with the students to guide them in their learning of the different contents and the development of the established competences.
Practical classroom sessions
Knowledge is applied to a real or hypothetical environment, where specific aspects are identified and worked on to facilitate understanding, with the support from teaching staff.
Solving exercises
Solutions are worked on by practising routines, applying formulas and algorithms, and procedures are followed for transforming the available information and interpreting the results.
Flipped classroom
The contents are prepared prior to the face-to-face lessons. Practical sessions take place in the classroom, which enable understanding and application of concepts to real cases and the expansion of knowledge with more technical and specialised details.
Tutorship
Students are given technical support in the preparation of the final project, according to their specialisation and the subject matter of the project.
Assessment criteria
Attendance
At least 80% attendance of teaching hours is required.
Level of participation
The student's active contribution to the various activities offered by the teaching team is assessed.
Solving exercises, questionnaires or exams
Individual tests aimed at assessing the degree of learning and the acquisition of competences.
Completion and presentation of the final project
Individual or group projects in which the contents taught in the programme are applied. The project can be based on real cases and include the identification of a problem, the design of the solution, its implementation or a business plan. The project will be presented and defended in public.
Work placements & employment service
Students can access job offers in their field of specialisation on the My_Tech_Space virtual campus. Applications made from this site will be treated confidentially. Hundreds of offers of the UPC School of Professional & Executive Development employment service appear annually. The offers range from formal contracts to work placement agreements.
Virtual campus
The students on this postgraduate course will have access to the My_ Tech_Space virtual campus - an effective platform for work and communication between the course's students, lecturers, directors and coordinators. My_Tech_Space provides the documentation for each training session before it starts, and enables students to work as a team, consult lecturers, check notes, etc.
