The Polytechnic School of UC3M (EPS) seeks to improve society by providing comprehensive quality teaching and developing advanced research in the areas of engineering. With an offer of bachelor and postgraduate degrees in Leganés, Colmenarejo and in the new campus of Puerta de Toledo (Madrid), EPS aspires to excellence in all its activities, with the aim of becoming one of the best engineering universities in Europe.

EPS stands out for the horizontal conception of Engineering, where by its various branches are taught together and not in isolation, providing a more complete training to future engineers.  This School combines both a cross sectional and an international approach. The School model is designed specifically to allow experts in different areas of knowledge to cooperate in the training of professionals who increasingly need to integrate various skills, in order to be truly multidisciplinary. Internationalization is required, since large engineering projects are global and do not include borders. The international vision is promoted by a curriculum, for all the engineering degrees, which is totally or partially (50%) taught in English.

EPS has an experience of over 10 years in this type of education, as well as a powerful exchange program with the best European and world universities. This has a positive impact in the high percentage of employment of each year recent graduates in engineering in the UC3M.  EPS also has agreements with many companies for students to go through training programs during their studies and to achieve a first working experience.

Moreover, UC3M has a Science and Technology Park, working with the EPS and the various research groups, that channels the technological offer of the same to many companies. The Park has a business hub that promotes entrepreneurship experiences in the EPS.
