Universidad Politécnica de Madrid
Language of Instruction Spanish and English. Undergraduate courses in English are only available in Materials Engineering
UPM has more than three thousand faculty members, around thirty eight thousand undergraduate students, and around six thousand postgraduate students.
In the style of the French Grandes Écoles, UPM is made up of 21 Schools dealing with the different areas of technology and awarding engineering degrees of four, five, or six years duration.
UPM’s Schools cover most engineering disciplines, including Aeronautical, Agronomical, Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Electronic, Forestry, Industrial, Mechanical, Mining, Nuclear, Geology, Energy and Naval Engineering, as well as Architecture, Computer Science, Design of Fashion and Geodesy & Cartography. In addition, UPM includes a Center for Physical Education and Sports, and a Design of Fashion School.
The Technical University of Madrid (UPM, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid) is the oldest and largest of the Spanish Technical Universities.
Although UPM is a young university, having been founded only in 1971, most of its Schools are over a hundred years old, dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries and existing independently until they were grouped together as UPM.
It is not an exaggeration to say that much of the history of Spanish technology for over one and half centuries was written by the Schools of Architecture and Engineering of this university, as for many years some of them were the only Technical Schools in existence in their fields in Spain. Almost all the leading Spanish educators and researchers have been involved with UPM either as students, teachers, or both.
