Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) is a Spanish university. It is based in the capital of Spain. Ever since its founding in 1971, it has been educating students from Spain and abroad. The school is the result of the merger between various Technical Schools of Engineering and Architecture. UPM is constantly ranked among the leading technical universities worldwide- it is THE top technical university in Spain. Its programmes in Engineering are renowned and the department is consistently ranked as the leading academic institution in Spain, and among the best ones in Europe. Universidad Politécnica de Madrid is part of the TIME network (which includes 50 engineering schools in Europe). UPM provides a great learning environment. The school is divided in several campuses, which are spread all over Madrid. The campuses are- the University City / Moncloa Campus, Montegancedo Campus, South Campus and Downtown Campus. The school places special emphasis on being a multinational institution. It therefore offers double degree programmes. The university has signed 87 specific double degree agreements with academic partners around the world. A double degree presents students with the opportunity to study for an international degree and opens doors to a global career. The school also has ERASMUS agreements with many European engineering school. UPM has excellent teachers. At the moment, 3,043 teaching and research staff are working at UPM. The administration and service staff consists of 2,023 people. The school offers a wide range of degree programmes at undergraduate, master’s and PhD level. Today, 35,353 undergraduate students and 2,226 master degree students are enrolled in programmes at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. UPM graduates employability is very high. Graduates usually find jobs within 6 months after graduating. Internships are a mandatory part of most of the courses, which prepare students for a successful career in their chosen fields.
The career prospects are promising so that should be good. Some professors could put a little more work in. The students are nice and welcoming and will help you out, mostly. Expect to fail most of your tests.View more
I think this degrade is difficult, but making an effort, it is possible to achieve good results. The school is in the centre of Madrid, and it is small.
Teachers are good, exams are difficult. In the future, you can find a good job.
One of the best in Spain and Madrid to study engineering or any similar science degree, it is very demanding and that makes many students discourage, the teachers are not bad and there are many very good, but there are some that could improve.View more
This university is probably the best an engineering student could ever attend in Spain. It offers the best bachelors degree en Spain for most of its engineering programs, and some of them are at the top at Europe and even the whole worldView more
It is very demanding, but it remains good. It needs modernizing a bit, but overall it is a good uni. A lot of people studying here are not from Madrid itself. Campus is spread around Madrid, but a few faculties gather in Ciudad Universitaria, what is nice.View more
It is an excellent university in relation to engineering.
Teachers are excellent professionals with a curriculum that precedes them. It should also be noted that they are quite demanding and do not give away the notes, but that also guarantees future preparation.
On the other hand, the university is very well located and there are public transport alternatives to get to it.
College life is fantastic.
This is my first year studying at this university and I am really enjoying it. The teachers are all qualified for the job and most of them are very good at explaining the subject’s contents, especially since they usually have previous experience. They are also accessible out of class time so you can ask them questions, and although the campus isn’t new, it’s still quite goodView more
The UPM is a great univerity, it has an overall great value. I think its main values are: the student life quality, the reputation it has gained over the years and the location. Student life in every faculty is really developed and supported by the college direction, there are oportunities for everyone to be integrated. This also links with location, since it is located in Madrid student liufe and univerity spirit goes on “afeter hours”. The UPM is also great in that it has a great reputation, which really helps out ehen looking for a job after graduation, This reputation, I feel like, is also very much well deserved.View more
The uni offers a lot of activities to students. The clubs are amazing. You can join more than twenty clubs from different fields, and meet many people who will help you in the future.View more
There are a lot of trees and that makes me feel like I’m in the countryside or in a park. Also, it’s well communicated (the metro station is line 6 and it has a few buses) and is near Moncloa. I don’ like the high prices of the canteenView more
