Welcome to the EPSEVG

 

The Vilanova i la Geltrú School of Engineering is a university school in Vilanova i la Geltrú that is part of Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya.

The EPSEVG has a history that goes back a hundred years and deep roots in the city of Vilanova i la Geltrú and the county of Garraf. Our close links to the industrial environment allow us to offer programmes with a practical focus, with work placements in companies, and an international orientation that translates into many Erasmus mobility grants for students.

We currently offer bachelor’s degrees in industrial engineering (Industrial Design and Product Development Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Industrial Electronics and Automatic Control Engineering) and ICT (Informatics Engineering).

For students who wish to continue their studies, we offer master’s degrees in Advanced Studies in Design–Barcelona (MBDesign), Automatic Systems Engineering and Industrial Electronics and Railway Systems and Electric Traction.

As a public university, it is our mission and duty to serve society as effectively as possible, and we are determined to meet and exceed our students’ expectations. We have made a decision to pursue these goals in a sustainable way that respects the environment.

 

Welcome to our school.

 

History

Governing bodies

The organisational structure of the UPC Campus in Vilanova i la Geltrú comprises university officers (most of the members of the management team, and degree coordinators) and collegial bodies (the School Board and the main committees).

Director: The director represents the EPSEVG and performs the regular duties involved in direction and management. He or she is elected by means of a free, secret, weighted vote by all members of the EPSEVG community. The term of office is four years, and directors may not serve more than two consecutive terms.

Management team: The management team consists of the director, assistant directors and academic secretary. Assistant directors and the academic secretary are appointed by the director. The team is accountable to the Standing Committee and the School Board for its management. The management team is assisted in its work by the degree coordinators.

UTG head of services: Montserrat Mestres Romeu – montserrat.mestres@upc.edu

Degree coordinators: Appointed by the director, degree coordinators have specific responsibilities in a particular area. Each degree has its own coordinator.

School Board: The EPSEVG’s governing body and its highest representative body. Its functions include approving EPSEVG policy with respect to actions that affect degree programmes, research and its own internal organisation; approving the strategic plan, the annual report and the School's budget; and establishing committees and proposing initiatives and goals. The School Board has 70 members – currently, 28 ex officio and 42 elected members. The ex officio members are the director, assistant directors, academic secretary, administrator, bachelor’s and master’s degree coordinators, a representative of each EPSEVG teaching department, and the student representative. The elected representatives are elected by and from among members of the various groups that make up the School. The School Board must hold an ordinary meeting at least once a year. Membership of the Board is renewed every four years, and the student representative is updated every year.

Standing Committee: The School Board’s executive and permanent representative body. The Standing Committee’s functions include all those related to the School’s day-to-day operation, including the organisation of teaching activity and drafting of internal regulations. It has a total of 24 members: 9 ex officio and 15 elected members. The ex officio members are the director, assistant directors, academic secretary and UTG head of services. The elected representatives are elected by and from among the members of the various groups that sit on the School Board.
