Before you start

We offer you the so-called Year 0 is a small voluntary program of activities designed to be carried out individually from home over the course of one week, prior to the start of the semeste

Your first day

On Monday, September 11th, we will have a welcome session at 9:00 AM. During this session, you will receive information about daily life at the School, the English courses (different levels) offered by the Language Centre at the School, the Tutorial Action Plan, and other activities designed for you. The Student Delegation of EET (DAAT) will participate in this event, organizing some recreational activities for you.

Additionally, at 11:00 AM, we will have a treasure hunt (gymkhana) that will help you get to know the School and some of the faculty members coordinating the teaching in the degree program, which will undoubtedly be useful for you.

Your first week

Please note that during the first week, we will have a special schedule so that you can attend the various activities of the integraTE program (such as the treasure hunt on September 11th and the talks we will have on Tuesday, September 12th, at 4:00 PM, and on Thursday, September 14th, at 9:00 AM). You can find both these schedules and the regular schedules for the bachelor degree in English and for the bachelor degree in Spanish-Galician, as well as the schedules for the week of December 11th to 15th, on the corresponding section of the School’s website. It is important that you get familiar with the schedules to avoid missing any class in the first few days.

Your class groups

At the end of August, we will inform you about the theory group and the practical groups which assigned to you for the first semester. In the second semester, you will be able to choose the groups that suit you best from those with available slots.

About the teaching organization in the 1st year

Teaching in 1st and 2nd years is organized over 13 weeks, with the 14th week (from December 11th to 15th) dedicated to the recovery of public holidays. In the 1st year, subjects follow three different timetables::

  • In Programming I and Programming II, you will have 4 hours of theory in the first week (split into 2 blocks of 2 hours), and for the rest of the weeks, 2 hours of theory and 3 lab hours (the latter divided into one 1-hour session and one 2-hour session, as indicated in the schedules).
  • In Calculus I and Algebra, you will have 4 hours of theory every week and 1 lab hour for 11 weeks.
  • In the rest of the subjects (Fundamentals of Mechanics and Thermodynamics; Fundamentals of Business; Calculus II; Probability and Statistics; Linear Circuit Analysis; Computer Architecture), you will have 3 hours of theory and 2 lab hours each week.

The lab sessions will start in the second week of the semester (in the first semester, on September 18th).

If you are already a student of the EET

At the EET, we advise all students during their stay with us, both in employment options, as well as in the options of continuing their studies. For that, we have the EET centre plan.

Do not forget that it is not all about studying, you also have the option to join student associations supported and funded by EET. In particular, we recommend that you go to the DAAT, EET’s student union.

Finally, UVigo has tools and services to help students in each of the stages. For more information, you can visit the section We advise you.

The University of Vigo provides the PIUNE programme (Programme of integration of university students with specific educational support needs) managed by the UNATEN (Unit of attention to students with specific educational support needs).
