The TecnoCampus’s facilities cover around 50,000m2, right on the seafront, at the entrance to Mataró coming from Barcelona. The site is just 15 minutes’ walk from the train station that connects Barcelona and Mataró, with trains running every 10 minutes.
The recently-constructed facilities were inaugurated in 2010 and consist of a campus area, which is home to the various higher education colleges, and a Business Park where around 100 innovative companies are based.
The campus building is also the location of CETEMMSA, a technological transfer and applied research centre specializing in the industrial sector, smart fabrics, printed electronics and wearable technology. The Park building is also home to the TicSalut Foundation, a leading institution in the field of Information and Communications Technologies applied to healthcare and the medical sector in Catalonia.
The classrooms are all equipped with air-conditioning, audio and video resources, and Internet access for laptops, enabling an intensive use of the Internet as a pedagogical tool. The enhancement sessions take place in small groups in the seminar rooms and the 12 laboratories.
