School of engineering and technology
The TecnoCampus Advanced Polytechnic University College (TAPUC) builds on the experience of the Mataró University Polytechnic College (EUPMt), which was affiliated to the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) for more than 30 years.
In the 2014/15 academic year, the tuition programs of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) began to be rolled out, after the affiliation agreement had been changed from the UPC to the UPF. At the same time, the college changed its name to the TecnoCampus Advanced Polytechnic University College.
Integrated within the TecnoCampus Mataró-Maresme Science Park, the TAPUC, is affiliated to the acclaimed university of excellence, the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. The TAPUC sets the university standard in Mataró and the county of El Maresme in the field of technology in relation to the audiovisual and video game sector, industry, information and communication. Thanks to the solid theoretical foundations and high practical level of the tuition programs run at the TAPUC, graduates are in the best position to join the professional world, as shown by the latest employability research carried out by the AQU (Catalan university Quality Agency).
Qualifications with a high degree of technological content
In the 21st Century, technology is an essential component of almost all spheres of knowledge and no longer the exclusive monopoly of fields of engineering. In line with the changes that society is undergoing, the College runs two programs officially linked to the social sciences branch of knowledge but encompassing a significant degree of technological content: the Bachelor Degree in Audiovisual Media and the Bachelor Degree in Video Game Design and Production. The range of tuition options also includes the following programs in the field of engineering: Bachelor Degree in Industrial and Automated Electronic Engineering, Bachelor Degree in Mechanical Engineering, Bachelor Degree in Information Management and System Computer Engineering, and, as a new undergraduate program starting in September 2018, the Bachelor Degree in Industrial Organization Engineering.
