Our School
informacion The Higher Technical School of Engineering (ETSI) was established in December 1963 according to the Spanish Royal Decree 3608/63 and sponsored by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). Experts from the OECD first visit Seville in July 1965 in order to agreed the curriculum of the School. The OECD curriculum was approved in July 1967.

The construction of the building started in August 1965. One year later, September 1966, academic activities began in the pavilion L-1.The School was officially open in April 1967. The first Director of the School was Mr José María Jiménez de Amores.

In March 1972 graduates the first class of the School made up of 30 graduates from the Electrical (17), Mechanics (7) and Chemical (6) specialities. The following year, Mr Javier Aracil Santonja got the first tenure of the School.

The curriculum (OECD) is declared extinguished on 1976 when the curriculum from 1964, valid in the rest of schools of the country, is assumed.

At that time it was possible to study the Industrial Engineering Degree in the specialities of Electrical, Mechanics, Organisation and Chemistry and PhD in Industrial Engineering. Over the year 91/92 the School begins to offer new studies: Telecommunications Engineering. Over the year 94/95 the advanced course of this degree in the specialities of Process Control, Electronics, Signals and Radiocommunications and Telematics is offered.

On the 26th October 1993 (by the Decree 157/1993 of the 5th October 1993, the catalog of official degrees in the andalusian universities is approved, BOJA [Official Bulletin of the Andalusian Government] 26th October) the degrees Industrial Engineering and Telecommunications Engineering, which were already offered, are assigned to the School as well as the new degrees Chemical Engineering, Industrial Electronics and Automatic Engineering, Industrial Organisation Engineering and Electronic Engineering. Finally, in 2001, the degree of Aeronautical Engineering is offered in the School.

The School also offers 5 undergraduate degrees (Industrial Technology Engineering, Telecommunications Engineering Technology, Chemical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering and the new Civil Engineering), which are complemented with their corresponding masters, 3 undergraduate degrees belonging to the “International Campus of Excellence Andalucia Tech” (Energy Engineering, Electronics, Robotics and Mechatronics Engineering and Industrial Organisation Engineering) and 7 masters (Master of Electronics, Communications and Signal Processing, Master of Electrical Energy Systems, Master of Automatic Control, Robotics and Telematics, Master of Advance Mechanical Engineering Design, Master of Industrial Organisation and Business Management, Master of Environmental Engineering and Master of Thermal Energy Systems).

The School has matured over its 29 years of life. Over 1900 well-trained graduates left their classrooms, many of them now PhDs, Professors, etc. The School has set up relations and collaborations with many other domestic and foreign universities in order to help both professors and students. Nowadays many students attend their courses in renowned international centres in the frame of the international exchange programmes.

Our School has nowadays almost 6000 students, 400 professors and an annual number of graduates of over 400 engineers.

The contact with the industrial sector, first through the Laboratory of Industrial Research and Tests and then through the Andalusian Association for Industrial Research and Cooperation (AICIA) has been a constant and productive target that duly helps to train the students and the industrial development of the region.
