Universidad Politécnica de Madrid

Information about the Technical University of Madrid (UPM)

The Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) is a reference point in the teaching of architecture and engineering in Spain. It is also highly regarded internationally for the quality of its teaching and the research carried out at its centres, departments, and institutes. The UPM?s degrees cover all areas of architecture and engineering, disciplines in which technology is advancing every day. But in addition to acquiring technological skills, scientists and engineers must be aware of their increasing social responsibility. To prepare its students for the challenges that await them in their professional careers, the UPM brings together the four broad functions of a modern higher education institution ? teaching, the generation of knowledge, the transfer of this knowledge to the productive sectors and government, the public communication of science and technology ? which make up the multi-faceted service that the university must provide in today?s society.
