Universidad Politécnica de Madrid
The Technical University of Madrid (UPM) was founded in 1971 through the integration of the Higher Technical Schools which up until then made up the Higher Technical Institutes. The University Schools joined the following year.
The University College of Computer Sciences integrated into the U.P.M. came about as a response to the social needs of first cycle graduates, both in the field strictly of computer sciences and industrial, commercial and research. The Centre was created by the Decree of the 27th October 1978, and began its activities in the 1978/79 academic year.
