The University has always focused on the quality and innovation of its teaching and research developing a fruitful relationship with business and productive world by means of experimental research and technological transfer.

Politecnico takes part in several research and training projects collaborating with the most qualified European universities. Politecnico’s contribution is increasingly being extended to other countries: from North America to Southeast Asia to Eastern Europe. Today the drive to internationalization sees Politecnico di Milano take part in the European and world network of leading technical universities and offers several exchange and double-degree programs besides of 19 Master of Science degree programs, 18 Doctoral programs and specializing Masters and post graduate courses which are entirely taught in English.



The Technical University of Madrid (UPM) celebrated its 25th anniversary in 1996, although the majority of its centres are over hundreds of years old and were founded in the 18th and 19th centuries. Each of them maintained its independence until being grouped together to form the UPM. It is no exaggeration to state that over one and a half centuries great part of the history of Spanish technology has been written by the Schools of Architecture and Engineering. They have been during a lot of years nearly the only and in some cases actually the only schools. All of the important personalities in the area of teaching and research passed through the respective centres as students or lecturers.

The UPM has several research institutes: the Juan Herrera Institute, the José Antonio de Artigas Industrial Research Institute, the Solar Energy Institute, the Automobile Research Institute, the Automatic Control Institute, the Agustín Bethencourt Institute-Foundation, the Institute of Optielectronics and Microtechnology.

The UPM also includes the following affiliated centres: the CEU for studies in architecture, the Higher Centre for Fashion Design and the Higher School for Brewing. In the academic year 1972-73 the Institute of Educational Science was also attached to the UPM.
