Introduction

The Faculty of Engineering in Bilbao was founded on 1897. We are a public institution offering graduate, postgraduate and doctoral studies in a wide range of fields: mechanics, electric and electronics, energetics, aeronautics, telecommunications, chemical, environmental, industrial management, robotics and automatic control, materials, etc.

There are around 3,500 students mainly coming from the Basque Country. We are a bilingual country (official languages are Spanish and Basque), Spanish being the main language of communication in Bilbao and in the Faculty.

High profile research, a strong relationship with industry and a wide offer of international programmes are our major characteristics, as well as the specific engineering training that we are offering. All combined, that's why we are the Faculty of reference in the north of Spain. Our engineers are highly demanded and the average time to get a first job is about three months once they obtain their degree.Our engineers are highly demanded and the average time to get a first job is about a month once they obtain their degree.

Our location is superb, in the very center of the city, well linked by underground, tramway, buses or local trains. Our international airport is linked to the main hubs in Europe, so it is easily accessible from anywhere in the world.
