UNIVERSIDAD POLITÉCNICA DE MADRID (UPM)
The Technical University of Madrid (UPM) was founded in 1971 through the integration of the Higher Technical Schools formerly known as the Higher Technical Institutes. However, the origin of the institution dates back much further. Teaching in the majority of the Centres was established during the reign of Carlos III. During those years the Schools were practically the only ones in the country linked to the teaching of Architecture and Engineering. As set out in its statute, the Technical University of Madrid has, among its objectives, the creation, development, transmission and criticism of science, technology, and culture. To this end it also works from its Institutes and Research Centers, assimilating the changes taking place in our society and maintaining its vocation for excellence, which is why it has both national and international recognition.
The Technical University of Madrid holds double recognition as a Campus of International Excellence, a distinction that refers to the quality of its research and teaching activity.
