    The University of Oviedo and the University of South Florida have closed a deal to offer a joint Master's Degree in Web Engineering which is part of the academic offer of the International Graduate Centre of the Asturian institution

    The new program will allow its students to achieve a joint degree. The dual Master's Degree in Web Engineering, taught at the IT Engineering School of Oviedo reaffirms the University of Oviedo's commitment to internationalization. It is the sixth double Master's Degree the International Graduate Centre offers students.

    For the achievement of this joint degree, once the student has finished the first semester of the second year, taught at the IT Engineering School of Oviedo, he will have to attend classes during the second semester of that second year plus an additional semester at the College of Engineering of the USF for the achievement of the degree of its program. Thus, in two years and a half students will obtain two Master's degrees.

    The enrollment fees will be determined according to the fees of the University of Oviedo, and not the ones applied in the USF. Consequently, students will have advantageous conditions when accessing this learning.

    The University of South Florida is the ninth university in the world as regards the number of patents published in the USA. Furthermore, it holds the 133th position in the university ranking published on the web of the CSIC's Cybermetrics Lab and it is 133th in the group of universities with high levels of research activity, a ranking carried out by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. It annually receives 300 million dolars from external funding for R&D projects. Besides, its PhD program in Computer Science is classified by the National Research Council of the USA within the 33% of programs with the highest levels of research activity.
