Seville engineering school

The ETSI was created in December of 1963 by the Organización para la Cooperación y el Desarollo Económico (OCDE) (Organization for Economic Development). July of 1965 produced the first visit by experts from that organization to Seville in order to discuss a new curriculum. The "OCDE" curriculum was adopted in July of 1967.

Construction of the building began in August of 1965, and teaching began one year later in the L-1 Pavillion in September of 1967 with Dr. Jose Maria de Amores Jimenez as the first director of the school. In March of 1972 the first graduating class of thirty students graduated with degrees in Electrical Engineering, Mechanics and Chemistry. In 1968 Dr. Javier Aracil Santonja took his place as the first paid professor of the school.

In 1976 the OCDE study plan is phased out, and the Plan de Estudios 1964 (1964 Study Plan) is adopted by the University as in the rest of the Universities in Spain. At that time the Industrial Engineer degree was being granted with the possibility of specializing in Electrical, Mechanics, Chemistry and Organization, and a Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering.


In the 1991-1992 school year the School begins to offer new courses leading to the degree of Telecommunications Engineer. In the 1994-1995 school year the second cycle of this degree is offered with the possibility of specializing in Control Processes, Electronics, Radio Communication and Signals and Telematics.

In October of 1993 the school continues to offer the degrees of Industrial Engineer and Telecommunications Engineer, adding Chemical Engineer, Automatic Control and Industrial Electronics Engineer, Industrial Organization Engineer, and Electronics Engineer.

For the 29 years the School has been in existence, it has been maturing as it has shaped 1,900 graduates who have been formed in its classrooms as doctors, professors, engineers, etc. We have forged channels of communication and collaboration with other universities in Spain and abroad for professors and students alike. At present, students of ETSI complete many of their courses as part of the foreign exchange programs where they are taught in prestigious universities worldwide.

Contact and collaboration with the industrial world through industrial research centers of Andalucia such as the AICIA, has been a constant goal and is yielding fruitful results; contributing both to the training of students and the industrial progress of the region.
