Presentation of the Center

The TecnoCampus University Center offers applied science studies aimed at professionalization in the fields of business, technology, cultural industries and health. The center is attached to Pompeu Fabra University and the official degrees it offers have the seal of quality of this University.

The center is located in the technology and university park of the same name, in Mataró, in a different environment that hosts a large number of companies and business growth environments. This ecosystem encourages TecnoCampus students to participate in activities, programs and awards that promote responsible entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship.

One of the objectives of the TecnoCampus is to develop research, understood as the academic activity focused on the generation of knowledge, with special emphasis on the transfer of knowledge to the company and society. 

 

 

Mission and Vision of the TecnoCampus

Create value around learning, research, entrepreneurship and innovation in the territory of Mataró and the Maresme, with projections throughout Catalonia.

To be a technological and university park of reference in Catalonia due to the uniqueness with which it develops the interaction between teaching, research and innovation with its business environment. To be a leader in the deployment of personal learning ecosystems for professionals, for companies and organizations in Catalonia, and at the same time to be recognized at European level as a unique experience in this field.

History

Throughout the thirteen years of existence of the TecnoCampus park, there have been several evolutions in its operating structure. The Business and University areas have grown and transformed to meet the changing needs of a society in constant transformation. 

The TecnoCampus University Center was born in 2023 from the merger of three pre-existing schools: the TecnoCampus Polytechnic School (ESUPT), the TecnoCampus School of Social Sciences and Business (ESCSET) and the TecnoCampus School of Health Sciences of the TecnoCampus (ESCST). The Escola Superior Politècnica del TecnoCampus (ESUPT) collects the experience of the Escola Universitària Politècnica de Mataró (EUPMt), promoted by Mataró City Council, which was attached to the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) for more than 30 years The TecnoCampus Higher School of Social Sciences and Business (ESCSET) became a university reference point since it began its activity in the 1994-1995 academic year, under the initial name of Escola Universitària del Maresme (EUM) , at the old Mataró Nautical Club.

In 2009 the EUPMt, created by the Mataró City Council, and the Maresme University School (EUM), created by the Maresme Regional Council, became the property of the TecnoCampus Mataró-Maresme Foundation. In 2010, the transfer of both centers to the new TecnoCampus facilities, promoted by Mataró City Council, took effect. The park hosted the two existing university centers in the city, and innovative companies with high added value that, together, set up a hybrid model between the productive world and the University, with the ultimate aim of contributing to the generation of wealth in the territory

In 2010, in addition, the TecnoCampus Mataró-Maresme Foundation created a third center, the Higher School of Health Sciences, affiliated to the UPF and integrated into the TecnoCampus Park.

Single subscription

In the 2014/15 academic year, the EUPMt, which until then retained its affiliation with the UPC, began its affiliation with the UPF, with the deployment of the UPF study plans and the progressive disaffiliation of the UPC, moment in which it changed its name to become Escola Superior Politècnica del TecnoCampus (ESUPT). To standardize the denominations, the EUM changed its name to the TecnoCampus Higher School of Social and Business Sciences (ESCSET). 

2023 is a crucial year in this evolution regarding the university area. The three university schools are transformed into a single centre, the TecnoCampus University Centre, integrated into the park managed by the TecnoCampus Mataró-Maresme Foundation, which owns it. This center is structured in four departments, which group together the regulated studies of the various fields of knowledge in which the TecnoCampus has specialized: cultural industries, technology, business and health. 

This change paves the way for a greater interrelationship between areas of knowledge, synergies in the operation and a recognition in the Catalan university system of the unique model of the TecnoCampus, a technological park based on knowledge and a university center for applied studies, oriented to professionalization, entrepreneurship and internationalization.
