ETSIA

International

The technological studies that can be studied in the Polytechnical University of Cartagena (UPCT), as a result of their long history, are widely considered to be pioneering centres for technological science throughout Spain. Indeed, the School of Industrial Engineering was one of the first to be set up in the country, alongside eight other cities, and the School of Mines was the third pioneering centre to be set up in Spain.
