LAW SCHOOL

Your School

Presentation of the Dean

Dear student:

The Law School of the CEU San Pablo University represents, at the same time, the solvency of the tradition of a Catholic university and the energy of innovation in the education of lawyers. Since its beginning, the oldest private law school in Spain has developed a creative vision of teaching Law and other scientific fields that are integrated into the School, such as Political Science, Criminology and Security, and International Relations. With this perspective, a Master's Degree in Access to the Legal Profession has been developed, in collaboration with prestigious law firms and with the contribution of brilliant legal professionals, and other master's and postgraduate degrees accredited by years of notable results.

Our priority objectives are:

  1. To train lawyers and professionals in an integral sense because responsible professionals are needed, with a formative base and a moral attitude that allows them to contribute to a transformation of the society that makes it fairer and more united.
  2. To promote in students the practical meaning of the knowledge acquired, because it is not enough to transmit in an excellent way the contents of the subjects: from the first moment, the student must perceive the practical transcendence of the knowledge transmitted.
  3. To prepare the student for a global future, because one cannot think today of a top-level professional without being capable of facing a plural context, which is increasingly internationalized and extraordinarily changing, and in which one’s employability and professional success can be found, at times, in relation to very different cultures.

Our excellence is based on these pillars, which have always characterized us. It is not only necessary for the student to acquire knowledge: our main achievement is the contribution to their personal enrichment, encouraging argumentation and academic debate.

That is why we offer students of the Faculty the experience of living in a university community, in which their capacity for critical analysis and proposal of solutions in a global environment is based. This is what the Law School of the CEU San Pablo University represents.

Why Study in the School of Law?

PROFESSORS

The Law School at the CEU San Pablo University has an excellent academic staff, in all senses: academic, professional and human. It surpasses the academic quality requirements established by law for private universities. More than 80% of the professors hold a PhD degree and of these, more than 75% are accredited by one of the official Quality Agencies. Most of the professors of the School have a research profile, in addition to teaching, working on relevant research lines and projects, among which the national R&D, funded by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, as well as those co-financed by the CEU San Pablo University itself and other public and private institutions, and adds a considerable number of six-year term research projects. All this is possible thanks to, in addition to the vocation and dedication of the professors, the economic effort of the University.

On the other hand, the Law School also counts with magnificent professionals of law, who contribute not only with theoretical knowledge, but also with legal practice. In short, the aim is that the professors in the School are nourished, in addition to study and research activities, by professional experiences.

In any case, the professors of the CEU San Pablo University Law School is characterized by its rigour and demand, as well as by its humane treatment and spirit of service to the student.

EXPERIENCE AND INNOVATION

CEU has been training lawyers for more than 75 years. Many of the best professionals in the legal field studied at CEU, which for many years was an affiliated center, before the creation of the CEU San Pablo University, which also has the honor of being the first to be authorized as a private University.

However, the CEU San Pablo University and its Law School do not settle with its experience; in addition, always attentive to society's demands, it is constantly looking to improve its educational programs. Without giving up the best of classical university education, we want students to develop their skills in reasoning and interrelation of knowledge, become familiar with legal concepts, and master principles and criteria for problem solving. We also aim, among other educational aspects, to exercise oral and written expression skills and argumentation techniques, the effective use of new teaching and learning technologies, and a greater contact with reality from the first academic year onwards.

INTERNATIONALIZATION

At the Law School we want to link our academic excellence to the training and international projection of our students. For this reason, our educational offer includes a bilingual program both in the Degree of Law and the Degree of Communitarian Law and in the simultaneous Degree of Law and Business Management and Administration. In addition, there are international mobility programs, and in concrete we have more than thirty agreements with universities in Europe and America. Thanks to these agreements, our students have the opportunity to enjoy academic stays abroad, both semestral and annual, for example, through the Erasmus program, with academic recognition of the studies. Among our partner Universities, the following are worth highlighting: Heidelberg, Copenhagen, Sorbonne, Augsburg, Tübingen, etc.

The Law School is the main venue (hosting university) of the most prestigious worldwide competition in the field of Communitarian Law, the European Law Moot Court Competition. This competition is based on the resolution of a practical case of legal nature given by expert lawyers, academics and members of the Court of Justice of the European Union.

Moreover, the School prepares its students for this competition for one year, and for that they have had great success in the last academic years. The students of the Law School have always passed the written phase and reached to the final of the regional phase. It is the only Spanish Law School that has a 100% success rate in this aspect, as it has qualified a team for seven consecutive years (2008/2009 to 2014/2015).

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

The Law School has achieved a very high rate of employability among its graduate students. For several years, more than 95% of its students have been able to get their first job within two years of completing their studies (according to data from an external audit company). But as important as the quantity is the quality of the positions and professional levels to which our students have been able to access: diplomatic career, public service of the European Union, large international law firms, bodies of the State Administration, etc. Among the most frequent professional opportunities are the following:

  • Free practice as a lawyer and attorney
  • Legal advisor in companies and banking
  • Bodies of the State Administration (State Attorney, diplomat, judge, prosecutor, lawyer of the Courts and the Council of State, notary, etc.)
  • Administrator in European institutions, international organizations, non-governmental organizations, etc.

European Law Moot Court

The Law School is the main venue (hosting university) of the most prestigious worldwide competition in the field of Communitarian Law, the European Law Moot Court Competition. This competition is based on the resolution of a practical case of a legal nature given by expert lawyers, academics and members of the Court of Justice of the European Union.

The School prepares its students for this competition for one year. Thanks to this, the students have had great success in the last years.

The students of the Law School have always passed the written phase and reached the final of a regional phase. It is the only Spanish Law School that has a 100% success rate in this aspect, as it has qualified a team for seven consecutive years (2008/2009 to 2014/2015).

The regional finals in which our teams have participated have been held in Lisbon, Boston, Dublin, New York, Istanbul, Lund, Prague and Bremen.

In addition, several of our teachers have been selected as members of the Regional Finals tribunals, as well as holding positions in the ELMC Society, which is in charge of the management of the competition.

Department

Basic Legal Disciplines and Private Law

This Department groups the following Areas: Philosophy of Law and Politics, Roman Law, History of Spanish Law, on one hand; and, on the other hand, Civil Law, Commercial Law, Labor and Social Security Law and Private International Law. These are, therefore, matters of legal foundation and positive law, the latter being typically of the field of private law, which has great doctrinal density.

The meeting of all of them has as one of its aims the promotion of research projects in the field of legal reasoning applied to positive law, comparative law in the field of obligations and contracts with special attention to arbitration, bankruptcy law from a historical-dogmatic perspective and current positive law, legal issues of maximum actuality in the field of labor, etc., adding to the legal perspective the singularly enriching, from a scientific and practical point of view, of political science.

The dynamism of the teaching of the different subjects, fully adapted to the new teaching methods of the Bologna Declaration, has led to the implementation of a work to enhance legal reasoning, balanced with memory, which already prepares the student in the degree for future professional practice by actively addressing the resolution of many practical issues that arise. The student is invited to participate in public debates within the Group itself, in the School and between Universities. As proof of this are the recent national and international awards obtained by our students, which guarantee the success of these initiatives and the in-depth work that is carried out with them on a daily basis.

Public Law

Our Department is organized in two departmental Sections. The first one is formed by the following areas and teaching units: Administrative Law, Criminal Law, Procedural Law and Financial and Tax Law. The second Section is made up of the following areas and teaching units: Constitutional Law, International Public Law and International Relations and State Ecclesiastical Law. The basic purposes of the Department are twofold: the first is teaching, organizing and giving classes in all the Schools of our University where subjects or courses belonging to the Department are taken.

The second is research. In relation to the latter, the Department, either jointly or through the different areas or teaching units, participates in various research projects both internal and external, national and international. Different conferences and seminars are also held annually for the training of both students and professors who make up the Department.

Research

Since its creation, CEU San Pablo University has tried to promote the research carried out by its professors. In order to make known this important scientific work, the Vice-Rectorate of Research publishes every year a Research Report and a Catalogue of Technological Offer.

The San Pablo CEU University has defined priority lines of research, to which it pays special attention through the constitution and funding of research groups in which the professors of the Law School participates. Furthermore, the School members are part of several Research Projects with public funding.

SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS AND BUSINESS

YOUR SCHOOL

Presentation of the Dean

“The entire object of true education is to make people not merely do the right things, but enjoy the right things — not merely industrious, but to love industry — not merely learned, but to love knowledge — not merely pure, but to love purity — not merely just, but to hunger and thirst after justice.”

John Ruskin (1819-1900)

Dear friends,

Welcome to the School of Economics and Business of the CEU San Pablo University; a School counting with decades of experience in educating people with a vocation to serve society.

In conclusion: an education that aids to excel and flourish in the new digital society.

Our efforts are centred around providing a solid academic formation, as well as training individuals to become employable and internationalised. These goals also comprise the formation and promotion of responsible entrepreneurship and leadership.

Testimonials

María Martínez Carrón Business Administration and Law CEU-Boston University.

"My semester at Boston University provided an enriching multicultural education. My favorite class was ‘Innovation, Global Competitiveness and National Economic Development’ with Professor Barry Unger, I enjoyed the debates and presentations. We had a very multicultural class… Working side-by-side on projects was very constructive. I understood the power of empathy on different levels."

Laura Díaz-TorañoLaurea University, Helsinki.

“After four years at the School of Economics, 450 km away from my home in Gijón, I decided to embark on a completely new adventure. An extreme climate, unknown customs and mindset make Finland an attractive destination. The CEU San Pablo University has always been my home during these last four years. Excellent teaching quality, great organization, a wide selection of educational plans, seminars as well as workshops and schedule flexibility are the elements which set apart our university. The main differences between Finland and the CEU San Pablo University lie in the way the courses are planned as the Nordic country tends to prioritize working from home to class attendance.”

Francisco X. Simões MoreiraLisboa

"The Erasmus Program has been an unforgettable experience for me, not only on an academic level, but also on a personal basis, because it is a unique opportunity to leave our natural "habitat" and face life in a different place. In my case, I come from a neighbouring country, Portugal, and I believe that, despite the closeness, on a cultural level the two countries do not share all aspects. In the academic field, I could not have chosen a better university. The School of Economics at the CEU San Pablo University has welcomed me with open arms, from the International Relations staff to the professors, all of whom have always been happy to help me. I take this opportunity to thank this great institution for providing me with one of the best experiences I have ever had in my life".

Paula SerranoHvAmsterdam

"I am living the best year of my life thanks to the CEU San Pablo University and its agreement with the University of Amsterdam. It has brought me much more than I ever imagined in all aspects. Academically it has made me grow and acquire new ideas. This experience has offered me many positive things, I have changed my way of seeing the world, of relating with people, and I have learned to trust in my abilities, since everything I have achieved here has been on my own merits. From my Erasmus I highlight the security that comes from knowing that I have successfully overcome all the barriers and fears that I had in the beginning and realizing that now I also have a different family, formed by all those people from each and every place in the world who have shared with me all the experiences and challenges that living in a foreign country entails".

Sonia ScandolaVerona

"My Erasmus experience at the CEU San Pablo University has been very positive. In Italy I study in a public university, very different especially from the organizational point of view. From the CEU San Pablo University I really like the closeness I have with the professors, they always do their best to make the students participate in class, they ask for feedback and suggestions, and if there is an Erasmus student present, opinions on how the course is taught in their countries, giving the possibility to all the students to know new ways of doing things. The teaching in the CEU San Pablo University is superb. Students are given the possibility to work in groups (very useful for our future at the workplace), students can learn to present in front of their colleagues a topic or a project that they have done and thanks to this the curiosity of students is stimulated by asking them to look for information on various topics related to the themes of the program. The system of continuous evaluation seems to me very efficient and represents a very important aid for the student, who has the possibility of studying most of the program during the semester and having less work at the time of the official exams. The CEU San Pablo University also offers opportunities to do activities outside the university environment: internships, cultural activities or sports, an aspect that sometimes we students value more in Erasmus than the students of the CEU.”

“Studying at BU means living in one of the most vibrant cities of North America. Boston is a great city where you feel right at home from the start. I also had the opportunity of meeting incredible people from around the world and learning about new cultures and customs. Overall, I think it is a great learning experience that enriches everyone”.

Miguel A. FernándezBoston

"The BU-CEU program has been an unforgettable experience both on an academic and personal level. I feel glad to have had the opportunity to participate and very satisfied to have made the most of the many experiences and possibilities it offers. All this is due to the great level of preparation and coordination both Universities undertake to make this program the best possible international experience for a university student”.

Internationality

One of the hallmarks of the School of Economics and Business is its strong internationalisation. The qualitative leap has been achieved through exclusive agreements with universities in the United States of America, which have the highest prestige and recognition, according to the main international classifications on university quality. These are leading institutions such as Boston University. There are also many international Erasmus and Bilateral agreements with Universities of high international prestige such as the Copenhagen Business School in Denmark, RWTH Aachen in Germany, City University in the United Kingdom or Macao University. Our students, in annual or semestral stays, can enjoy an international experience in any of the more than 70 English, French, German, Portuguese and Italian speaking Universities with which there is an agreement.

Internships

The School of Economics and Business has as one of its priority objectives the practical training of its students. The market requires skills that students acquire when they have the opportunity to work in a company. To this end, the School has included external mandatory curricular practices in all its degrees. This way, by the time they finish their degrees, all students have already acquired important work experience.

The Department of Professional Careers and within it, Prácticas Moncloa provided and tutored internships to more than 500 students during the 2015-16 academic year, through Framework Agreements with the best public and private entities, greatly surpassing the supply of internships to the demand.

At the same time, Professional Careers organizes activities such as the Employment Forum, Coffee Meetings with different sectors’ companies and with Headhunters, training courses and seminars, such as the presentation of the Curriculum Vitae, or how to face a selection process, etc. in order to accompany and advise students in their search for employment and to do so in the best possible way.

Professors

The School counts with professionals with extensive experience in the economic and business field, as well as a large teaching staff with great teaching experience and important research tasks, accredited by several autonomic and national quality agencies, such as ACAP and ANECA.

All students in the School of Economics and Business are assigned a tutor at the beginning of the course, who is responsible for guiding students through their studies, advising them on practical work, and keeping them informed of their academic situation, always with the utmost respect for their personalities and freedom.

Innova Class

The Innova class is a recent initiative of the School of Economics and Business, however promoted and developed by the students themselves. It is innovative in its conception and design and works under the management of the students themselves, constituting the appropriate and closest meeting point for the sharing of innovative projects in the areas of entrepreneurship, business orientation, associationism, debate and reflection, as well as the presentation of ideas and proposals that will result in the professional projection of the students and in their transversal and practical training.

Life at the School

The School is a place of study and training, but above all it is a place of learning and reflection. In addition to the knowledge acquired, the School, which is made up of university students, professors and administrative and service staff, must be active and dynamic, especially when its field is in permanent relation to the reality of the economy and business world. Dynamism, activity and university life are key elements which clearly reflect the energy and enthusiasm transmitted by the students.

SCHOOL OF HUMANITIES AND COMMUNICATION SCIENCES

YOUR SCHOOL

Presentation of the Dean

Welcome to the School of Humanities and Communication Sciences, a center that represents the essence of what its founder, Ángel Herrera Oria, wanted to offer with his efforts to society: a center in which the most demanding education would serve as the basis for the integral formation of our students to put their being and their knowledge at the service of the common good.

In our tireless search for truth, the fundamental premise of the University, we define ourselves with the following words: pioneers, coherent and committed.

Pioneers because we follow the footsteps of Mr. Ángel Herrera and the group of young people from the ACdP who were not afraid to be ahead of their time when they founded El Debate, the first School of Journalism or the Center for University Studies in 1933, the seed of what we are today. We take up their legacy to be the first in Spain to start a program in Digital Communication, combined with the depth of the Humanities, History and History of Art and to teach Journalism, Audiovisual Communication, Advertising and Public Relations from the multiple perspective of complete education, digital transformation and our international vocation. The international vocation that we consolidate with studies both in Spanish and in English, study abroad programs such as the International Bilingual Program (IBP) with UCLA Extension (University of California Los Angeles) and the hosting of hundreds of international students in our classrooms, which allows us to contribute to the expansion of our culture, our heritage and our language beyond our borders.

We continue being pioneers, and we do so with a laboratory for the creation of ideas, The HUB, where History can be transformed into a series or a novel, the Humanities are digitalized, Journalism and Audiovisual Communication fit into a cell phone and Advertising moves in the newest social networks.

We are coherent because we are the guardians of the values that we have received and we are committed not only to safeguard and show them to our students, but to take them beyond our borders in our constant search for internationalization. Today, more than ever, society needs well-trained people who can become the catalyst for change in the world through critical thinking based on Christian humanism.

We are committed because we take up the legacy of our predecessors in our decision to collaborate in the integral education of our students. Our daily work is born from our vocation of service in the task of preparing the young people who will be the future, guiding them in the achievement of the academic skills they need in their professional development and accompanying them in their personal journey. In the end, good people, well prepared and with good criteria, will make society a better place.

 
María Solano AltabaDean of the School of Humanities and Communication Sciences

Why Study in the School of Humanities and Communication Sciences?

LONG TRADITION

The Faculty has its origin in the School of Journalism of the newspaper El Debate, the first initiative for higher education in communication in Spain, established in 1926 by Ángel Herrera Oria. Along with degrees in History, History of Art and Humanities, we offer degrees in Journalism, Audiovisual Communication, Advertising and Public Relations, and the pioneer degree in Digital Communication.

INTERNATIONAL CHARACTER

We are the only center in Spain where it is possible to study all the degrees in Communication in English together with the possibility to stay and study in an English-speaking University. This international vocation is completed with the programs with Columbia University and Boston University (USA) and with the mobility of our students in European universities (Erasmus+) and the rest of the world (International Agreements).

EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE

Theoretical training in the classroom is combined with applied training, given in small groups in the modern facilities of the Audiovisual Center, as well as with internships in companies and public institutions, thanks to more than 1,000 collaboration agreements. We also have our own media: OnCEULab and La Agencia.

FACULTY

The various degrees are taught by more than a hundred professors, most of whom are accredited doctors with a long history of research, and who in many cases combine teaching with professional practice.

THE AGENCY

Students of the School of Humanities at USPCEU can learn how to work in a real advertising agency from the very beginning. At The Agency there are real clients and assignments and students make ads that are published. From the first day you learn to work and have fun with your work; to be creative, to innovate and to work in a team. Our students know first-hand the daily work that professionals in the sector do, from creativity and planning to event organization.

ONCEULAB

It is the first university digital multimedia platform created in Spain, made by students. It is an initiative of the School of Humanities and Communication Sciences of the CEU San Pablo University. The project was promoted with the idea of offering students the opportunity to put into practice the theoretical knowledge they acquire in the classroom. The innovative aspect of the proposal is based on creating the conditions for students to combine the practice of traditional journalism with the knowledge of the technological tools that characterize the new communication landscape.

It is a training proposal for future professionals that has no lucrative purpose. The page has no advertising and does not receive income from any private company beyond the contributions of the University itself. The platform provides information on current events, culture, leisure, sports, etc., aimed particularly at the university public. The innovativeness of the project has aroused the interest of some media.

Visit OnCEULab.

PHOTOGRAPHY

From the beginning of their studies, our students have access to the latest professional photographic equipment - digital reflex cameras, medium format cameras, studio lighting, computer programs, etc. - and to different spaces where they can receive training in this area: set, digital classroom, editing room and conventional laboratory. There is also a free service of equipment loan and reservation of laboratory facilities so that our students can prepare their own work.

CEUMEDIA

CEUMEDIA is a cultural project which aims to cover the big media through the Internet. The aim is to create high quality audiovisual products and propose a new way of understanding communication.

DEPARTMENTS

JOURNALISM

The Department of Journalism is made up of 31 professors, most of whom hold PhDs in three areas of knowledge: Journalism, Spanish Language, and Librarianship and Documentation. In addition, there are three emeritus professors of recognized prestige.

SCHOOL OF PHARMACY

YOUR SCHOOL

Presentation of the Dean

Dear Student,

The CEU San Pablo University has been teaching Pharmacy since 1973, first as a University College, and since 1993 as a Private University. The School of Pharmacy has diversified its academic offer since then, responding to the real need for new professional profiles. We teach Human Nutrition and Dietetics since 1999, Optics and Optometry since 2000, and since the academic year 2011-2012 we also offer the degree in Biotechnology.

Our School was a pioneer in the implementation of simultaneous degrees through an organization that optimizes the effort of the brightest students. Last year we offered for the first time in Spain an innovative and interdisciplinary educational proposal, the simultaneous degree in Pharmacy and Business Administration.

Seven years ago, we started a bilingual program in Pharmacy, with specialization in clinical trials, and in collaboration with the University of Chicago. This program was expanded two years ago with the incorporation of the offerings in Pharmacy and Bilingual Biotechnology. Most recently we have added a new program in Biotechnology, oriented to the management of biotechnology companies, which includes, as a novelty, an internship in companies of the sector in the United States.

With our degrees in Nutrition and Optics adapted to professionals, we are combining efforts to offer continuous, semi-presential training, adapted to professional practice and of an official nature. Our offer is completed with official postgraduate and doctorate programs. It is worth highlighting the beginning of the Doctorate Program in Health Science and Technology, within the CEU International Doctorate School (CEINDO). A program that has been possible thanks to the excellent research potential of this School.

The research groups work in 20 laboratories and carry out a remarkable work of knowledge generation. The funding of these groups (competitive projects from public and private organizations and contracts with the industry) amounted to €1,300,000 euros during the last academic year, with a scientific productivity that is reflected in the more than one hundred articles that the different groups publish each year in international journals of the JCR.

Our graduates are recognized in all professional fields, as evidenced by the high rate of employability of our graduates, corroborated by numerous testimonials and excellent results in national tests such as the FIR (No. 1 in 2013).

In short, teamwork and coordination of all human resources that constitute the essence of this school, be it professors, students or administration and services staff, allows the proper development of all activities involved in educative and investigative tasks.

SCHOOL OF MEDICINE

YOUR SCHOOL

Presentation of the Dean

Dear Student:

The School of Medicine offers degrees in Nursing, Physiotherapy, Medicine, Dentistry, Psychology, and Genetics In addition, the degrees of Dentistry and Physiotherapy are taught in English. Always under the hallmark of closeness between professor and student, tradition and innovation, and a personalized attention that makes us one of the most prestigious medical schools in the country.

We are a School that generates knowledge (research), transmits knowledge (teaching) and applies knowledge (assistance).

With a wide range of academic experience behind us, we are based on the basic principles of Christian humanism and, in this sense, our motto is E pluribus unum (out of many, one). Therefore, professors, students, administration and service staff form a group of enthusiastic people. To our future students, we also offer an excellent team of experienced professors, committed to teaching and research. With them, we carefully plan all our courses with attention to detail and rigour: theoretical classes, practices, exams, tutorials, bachelor’s thesis, specific scientific meetings for students...

In addition, we have excellent facilities at the Montepríncipe campus: classrooms, laboratories, dissection rooms, computer rooms, libraries, language laboratories and the latest technologies available (academic management portals, campus-wide wi-fi network, advanced laboratory equipment, etc.). We also have an active high quality university internship service that allows our students to put into practice for the first time the knowledge acquired in the different facilities that HM Hospitales has (HM Universitario Madrid, HM Universitario Montepríncipe, HM Universitario Puerta del Sur, HM Universitario Sanchinarro, HM Universitario Torrelodones and HM Universitario Nuevo Belén), in the Centro Integral Oncológico Clara Campal. Likewise, in the Clínica Universitaria Odontológica CEU-HM, in primary care centers in the community of Madrid, in addition to prestigious specialized clinics. The efficient management of all this is achieved thanks to our administration and services staff, who carry out a silent and effective work, providing our teachers and students with a day to day absolute teaching performance. The students also have personalized attention through academic, clinical and research tutors, which allow them to maintain an individualized training throughout their university career. In addition to technical and scientific training, the faculty offers a wide variety of cultural, sports and humanistic training to all students, thus adapting to the new health reality: multidisciplinary units, new specialties, leading diagnostic and therapeutic technologies, etc.

From the undergraduate stage, students receive theoretical and practical training in basic and clinical medical research, which will allow them to be future researchers while practicing translational medicine. The fact that a large number of faculty members are integrated into the different divisions of our Institute in Applied Molecular Medicine (IMMA) undoubtedly facilitates this research facet. On the other hand, the Master and PhD programs, oriented to the specialization of the students, constitute a unique opportunity to approach research in a high quality environment, accredited by ANECA, and allow the student to maximize his/her opportunities in the labor market. The adaptation of our faculty to the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), makes the necessary convergence and integration with other European universities a reality. With many of them, we also have agreements that allow the exchange of students and professors.

Also, our students can benefit from our international vocation with our mobility agreements with different universities, both in Europe and in the rest of the world.

The undeniable value of everything mentioned so far is completed with the reinforcement of the classic values: teamwork, harmony, eagerness, respect for others, constancy, rigor, prudence, trust, coherence, effort and patience. Our goal is to make our students competent professionals, seriously committed to building a more humane and friendly society. To this end, we work so that our graduates attend to the future patients, in addition to solid theoretical and practical knowledge, skills and competences, with a large dose of humanity. We are convinced that we can train you as a competent professional, committed to society, who helps to improve the quality of life of our fellow men and women, sometimes healing, often relieving and always comforting.

On behalf of all the components, I give you the most sincere welcome to the School of Medicine of the CEU San Pablo University.

INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

YOUR INSTITUTE

PRESENTATION OF THE DIRECTOR

Dear future student:

If you are reading this, it is probably because you are passionate about Architecture or Engineering and wish to work in one of these professions in the future. In the current economic-professional circumstances, you should know that, when you graduate, practising these professions is going to mean, in most cases, working with teams of international architects and engineers on projects that are going to be developed, in many cases, in very diverse geographical and cultural areas of the world.

Therefore, it is very important that you ensure that the education you receive prepares you adequately for a progressive and irreversible professional internationalisation. You should also ensure that this education is of the highest quality, in order to compete in the best possible conditions in a globalised professional market.

In the case of Architecture, the education given to passionate architects revolves around a study program in which the student may freely chose the language in which they wish to study. In resonance with this, students with outstanding academic records and English language requirements may complete part of their studies in foreign universities in an international extension of these. You should also know that our architecture studies have been positively evaluated by the National Architectural Accrediting Board or NAAD of the United States.

Together with the Architecture Degree, which is available completely in English and offers the full skill set required to be a qualified architect without the need to enrol in an enabling master, we offer a new Interior Design Degree specifically tailored for architects who wish to complement their academic formation with other studies. In addition to these, we offer to the Architecture division other study courses such as those regarding Digital Fabrication (in collaboration with the MIT) and those regarding Sustainability and Energy Efficiency (in collaboration with the Spanish Green Building Council).

As far as Telecommunications Engineering is concerned, we would like to place our educational emphasis on achieving a generalist training in the ICT sector that contemplates, in addition to the technical aspects, a decisive orientation towards innovation processes, entrepreneurship and business. This Degree is followed by a master’s degree in Telecommunications Engineering (MUIT: Master's Degree in Telecommunications Engineering).

Since the 2013/2014 academic year, we have been committed to training Biomedical Engineers, engineering professionals oriented towards the application of analysis and design methodologies in the bio-sanitary field. We are starting this effort with a bachelor’s degree, which will be followed by a master's degree. As a differential element, we consider involving students, from the beginning of their studies, in training activities directly related to research, as we believe that these professionals are natural applied research leaders in a large part of the biomedical field. Logically, the professional we aim to train is oriented towards international and globalised markets, which is why the programme we have designed is bilingual.

We also offer, since the 2013/2014 academic year, a Double Degree in Telecommunications Systems Engineering and Biomedical Engineering. With this unique offer in the Spanish university market, we seek to satisfy the student who wishes to train professionally, and simultaneously, in the field of ICT and Bioengineering.

Finally, we include in our offer, from the 2014/2015 academic year onwards, a new Degree in Information Systems Engineering, which can be studied simultaneously, at the Montepríncipe Campus, with Business Administration and Management or with Telecommunications Systems Engineering. Information systems are the technological support for the economic activity of companies, whether they are SMEs or large multinationals. The Information Systems Engineer is in charge of designing these systems. Starting from the 2015/2016 academic year, this degree can be combined with the Telecommunications Systems Engineering degree; with this double degree, students acquire a premium training in the area of ICT, without competition in the market.

I hope to see you soon at the Institute of Technology.

 
David J. SantosDirector of the Institute of Technology

WHY STUDY IN THE INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY?

An active School

The Institute of Technology organises a multitude of valuable activities as a fundamental part of its academic excellence programme. To this end, master classes are organised with guest professors and architects of great national and international recognition such as Rafael Moneo, John Barton (Stanford University) or Charles Waldheim, from Harvard University, as well as joint studies with universities such as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, visits and study trips to countries in Europe, Asia and America, competitions and other complementary activities that complete the education acquired in the classrooms.

Tutoring

At the Institute we believe that academic education should be guided and focused by personal and academic tutors, something of fundamental importance to ensure the correct educational development of a student.

Given the importance of both figures, the resources that the Institute allocates to tutoring are significant; the average professor commits to tutoring approximately 50% of his/her yearly educational working hours.

Innovation and Quality of the Faculty
Awarded students

Students at the Institute have received numerous awards from independent university institutions, organisations and companies. For example, only in specific competitions for final projects of Architecture, 16 Architecture students have been awarded prizes, both in national and international calls. The ratio between awarded students and graduates is extraordinarily high.

Final Project

In order to obtain the degree, each student must prove their ability by producing and presenting a final project similar to those they may encounter in their professional life, combining the different disciplines learned in the courses of the degree.

Students who are enrolled in Final Project Course of the Architecture degree have a specific workshop dedicated to them. It is organized to simulate a professional office, where students have working resources (computer equipment, scanners, plotters, library, etc.) and where they meet with their tutors to discuss their work.

The number of tutors in the workshop in the areas of project knowledge, structures, installations, construction and city planning is 28 (the approximate ratio is 1 tutor for every 4.5 students).

The Institute allocates numerous resources to the Final Project phase, since it is in this area that students must integrate all the knowledge acquired in their studies and demonstrate their aptitude for professional performance in a final exercise. The Institute constantly evaluates the quality of the degree's final phase, as it a reliable way to measure the quality with which the overall degree is taught.

Tailored Teaching

The student requires a balanced training in all Architecture disciplines: technical, humanistic and design. Each one of them requires its own system of work and learning, and in our Institute the adaptation of each student to them is pursued. We achieve this requirement, since the groups never exceed 45/50 students, and the teachers can offer individual assistance when required. All subjects entail the possibility to tutoring. Many technical subjects also offer specific practice programmes.

In subjects that have a workshop structure (technical drawing, first years’ computer graphics labs, project workshops and city planning workshops based upon those previously coursed, construction workshops and final years’ structures and facilities) each group has two professors simultaneously, an aspect that encourages to the debate and generate a critical view from the students, which is something that the Institute considers a fundamental teaching tool.

Complementary Education in the Access Course

It is considered essential to consolidate and, if necessary, refresh the knowledge acquired by new students from their last high school years. To this end, preparatory courses are organised during the first weeks of the studies. Similarly, tutoring is complemented with extra courses in some subjects, dedicated to students who need additional support during the course.

The Institute’s Summer School organises specific bilingual courses aimed at students entering the University, introducing them to the study of Architecture.

 

There is also a programme for technological pre-university students, developed among the CEU group schools of Madrid, consisting in a series of seminars on innovative technological subjects aimed at high school students. All these activities are of an eminently practical and applied nature and seek to stimulate high school students towards technological disciplines.

The Adaptation of the Faculty to the EHEA

The teaching staff of the Institute has been progressively trained and adapted to the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) since the 2001 academic year, when the renewed plan began to be implemented. In addition to establishing in the different subjects the obligation to evaluate the student continuously, introducing specific practice programmes, incorporating in a decisive way the new technologies to teaching, or to plan the teaching methodologies, the teaching staff has been trained within the Plato programme, in collaboration with Harvard University, in new techniques for the structuring of the teaching in the classrooms and the improvement of the students' performance, stimulating (especially in the theoretical filed, where this tradition did not exist previously) the use of methods for the development of directed classes (case method).

TEACHING/RESEARCH SYNERGY

Our Institute's professors have initiated research projects that are being opened up to student participation. In Architecture, lines of research related to accessibility, sustainable urban development, building material properties and their application to building structures and the energy assessment of buildings are being promoted.

At the moment, the Institute has laboratories for building materials and procedures, structures and facilities. A research project has been developed regarding the integral design of efficient systems and buildings (BALI).

The Institute participates in the AEI Cerámica (Innovative Business Group of the Structural Ceramics Industrial Sector), a cluster in which companies from the sector, universities and research centres participate.

ACTIVITIES

The Institute offers students a broad range of activities, in parallel with their studies. These activities are also open to students from other schools or faculties and to the general public. The school gives great importance to this type of complementary training, which it believes is necessary for the integral formation of the university student.

DEPARTMENTS

ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN

The Department of Architecture and Design includes the professors who teach the Degree in Architecture and the future Degrees in Design and Civil Engineering.

The Degree in Architecture trains students in technical and humanistic subjects typical of the architecture profession. It enables the student to exercise the design activity that makes it possible to generate appropriate spaces according to each specific need, visually communicate information, facts, ideas and values useful to mankind, as well as for the full solution of constructive, urban and graphic design problems. These disciplines involve processing and expressing social, cultural, perceptive, aesthetic, technological and environmental factors in terms of form.

The department has active research groups with various lines of research, including 'Landscape Architecture'; 'Thermo-structural analysis of various construction materials at high temperatures'; 'History of Architecture and Urbanism and life cycle analysis of construction materials’.

In order to complement the education in several Architecture courses, two independent programmes have been designed: The Digital Manufacturing Workshop and Energy Efficiency and Construction Sustainability. With these programmes it is possible to deepen in theoretical and practical knowledge of subjects of the degree that are included in the study plan but can be further developed.

INFORMATION TECHONOLOGIES

The Institute’s Information Technology Department has been educating Telecommunications Engineers and Computer Engineers since 2000. Under the new model established for Higher Education (Bologna Declaration) these professionals begin their academic training through a Degree; in our case, through the Degree in Telecommunications Systems Engineering and the Degree in Information Systems Engineering. These degrees are complemented by a Master’s degree in Telecommunications Engineering (qualifying for the regulated profession of Telecommunications Engineer) and a Master’s degree in Information Systems Engineering (not yet implemented). In addition, we have started training Biomedical Engineers through our Degree in Biomedical Engineering, which is bilingual, and whose objective is to train engineering professionals specialised in the application of analysis and design methodologies characteristic of Information and Communication Technologies in the bio-sanitary field. This ambitious project, which will be completed in the future with a University Master's Degree in Biomedical Engineering, focused on educating researchers of this field, also enjoys participation from the Schools of Pharmacy and Medicine of the CEU San Pablo University.

For students with greater educational ambitions, we have designed three double itineraries, through which it is possible to study two degrees simultaneously. These itineraries consist of one more academic year than the single degree programmes (5 years in total), and count with an increased workload throughout the academic year in comparison with the single degree. They clearly imply an extra effort from the student, but we believe that the double degree graduates will acquire a premium profile for the labour market.

Although, as we said above, all Institute’s graduates receive education with a marked emphasis on innovation, entrepreneurship and business, in the case of graduates from the Engineering Division, this emphasis is complemented by specific training in the so-called "soft skills", since we cannot conceive of engineering practice without a practical mastery of these skills.

Finally, in addition to strictly academic training, in the Engineering Division we provide "in-company" training for companies, through "full-custom" programmes, adapted to the specific needs of our clients.

RESEARCH

The research activity of the members of both departments (the Departments of Architecture and Design and Information Technologies) is very diverse, based on the participation in research projects of the CEU San Pablo University itself and other official institutions, carried out in collaboration with multidisciplinary and interuniversity teams.

NAAB

The Architecture programme of the Institute of the CEU San Pablo University has successfully passed the verification process by the NAAB (National Architectural Accrediting Board) of the United States. This accreditation is labelled as International Certification when it is granted to universities outside the United States. This grants architects with degrees from our Institute the necessary qualifications to register as architects in most states of the United States of America, with the same professional rights as architects with American degrees from other NAAB-accredited schools.
