The School of Telecommunications Systems and Engineering
The School of Telecommunications Systems and Engineering of the Technical University of Madrid (ETSIST-UPM) aims at providing high quality education, as confirmed by the participation in educational innovation projects and, above all, by the social recognition from over 8000 graduates in Technical Telecommunication Engineering. This expertise is now applied to the Bachelor of Engineering university programs which started in the 2009-10 academic year, with the objective of creating polyvalent, flexible, creative and competitive professionals, capable of contributing to the social and technological development and progress of the country.

Graduates can further their education at our School, choosing among the following majors:
Another challenge has been to establish an important national and international relationship framework. Many agreements with the main companies in the industry have been signed, allowing students to do internships and pursue their professional careers at these companies. Additionally, the ETSIST Centres Network has been launched in conjunction with over 100 high schools and secondary education centres with the objective of establishing a relationship framework among the University and secondary education centres to facilitate the adaptation of these students to the University.
We have reached numerous agreements with European universities, as well as with some American, Latin American and Chinese universities for the benefit of student mobility and staff mobility, within exchange programs such as Erasmus, Seneca, Athens....
All these educational, research and innovation initiatives are complemented by a wide range of social, cultural and sportive services and activities at a University Campus with easy access and parking.
