On my behalf and more on behalf of the faculty, staff and students of the School of Telecommunication Engineering, I want to thank you for choosing our school to follow your academic career.
The EET is a reference center in both teaching and research where you will receive quality training with a high practical orientation (50% of the teaching is given in small groups, laboratories and/or project work orientation). Research excellence is reflected in the continued presence in recent years in the Shanghai ranking, among the top 200 centers in the world in Telecommunications. The teaching and research staff of the EET is engaged in applied research, transferring knowledge to the business and industrial fabric. That is why our center was the one that obtained the largest number of contracts with companies and the largest economic volume in the last year.
This close relationship with research in the field of information technologies and communications, allows us to offer an applied teaching close to the needs of the industry, which is reflected in the collaboration of external professionals in the definition of projects and final projects to be developed by the students, especially in the last years of the degree and in the masters, in addition to the curricular internships in companies. In fact, our Degree has appeared among the best five in Spain in Telecommunication in the rankings published annually by El Mundo.
To facilitate your incorporation into life at the center, we have two pioneering programs of Tutorial Action at the University of Vigo, which we call MEET and orientaTE.. In the MEET (Mentoring at EET), you will receive help from students from higher courses, specifically trained in transversal competencies for this mission, who will act as mentors and, together with the teaching team, will accompany you during your first year at the School. In addition, you will have specific talks and workshops for this first contact with the University. The aim of the orientaTE program is to help you towards your exit into the world of work: you will receive advice and complementary training throughout your stay at EET on different aspects of your professional and academic career. Don’t forget to contact the DAAT, the center’s student body: a group of students, elected to represent you, committed to the smooth running of the center and the university, who are always ready to help you.
But your career at the School will not be limited only to your studies. During this period, you will enrich your network of friends and you will have the opportunity to enjoy all the opportunities offered by the university: study abroad in other national and foreign universities, practice sports, attend cultural activities, …without forgetting to participate in a student association. At the EET we are proud to sponsor and help 6 associations (four of them were actually born in our School) that dedicate their time to such exciting topics as: building a manned solar boat to compete internationally; designing, building and launching small satellites; improving public speaking skills by preparing to compete and win national university tournaments; creating an annual employment forum with great success; working on different engineering projects; or designing and building a manned single-seater for international competitions.
In this website you can consult information of your interest, but do not hesitate to contact the management team, the administration and services staff or the DAAT if you need a more personalized attention.
I hope you enjoy your university period in our School, which will always be your home and where you will always be welcome.
