Abstract

The present work can be included in a much broader investigation related to the content, methodology and success of the Final Degree Project (FDP) in the framework of Building and Construction Management. The aim of our proposal is to study the current FDP in Technical Architecture and Building Engineering degrees using an academic analytics approach. Here, we will focus on the first stage, in order to establish a relationship among the main academic indicators that determine the FDP outcome. The typology of the final projects in engineering degrees requires the use of abilities and technical competences described in several academic plans, in order to prepare the student for joining the job market. This work focuses on and compares the 2004-2007 and 2012-2015 periods (pre and post Bologna), in order to examine the effect of expanding the academic plan from three to four academic years. The results confirm an improvement in the final marks the students attained in the second period, which can be related to the changes in the academic plan.
