The UPCT graduates a new batch of architects, building engineers and heritage experts (21/09/2019)

The Higher Technical School of Architecture and Building (ETSAE) of the Polytechnic University of Cartagena (UPCT) has celebrated this Friday the graduation of the new promotion of graduates in Architecture and Building Engineering and postgraduates in Building Science and Technology in Architecture and Heritage.

Fifty students have participated in the graduation ceremony, which was held at the El Batel auditorium chaired by the rector of the Polytechnic, Alejandro Díaz, and which has been attended by representatives of the official architects' colleges and Surveyors, Technical Architects and Building Engineers, as well as with the presence of the new Director General of Universities, Josefina García León, who has also been the mother of one of the promotion of the Master in Heritage, as she is a professor at the School of Architecture and UPCT building.

The rector has highlighted in his final address the dozen awards and recognitions harvested by both teachers and students of the ETSAE during the past year in multiple national and international competitions.

To such an extent the participation of the UPCT in architectural competitions that the student Eva Moreno has already won six different awards is fruitful.

Among the students who have starred in the graduation ceremony this Friday, several are Italians who have made official master's degrees at the UPCT thanks to the INPS scholarship.

In fact, half of the students of the CYTEA Master were foreigners last year.

"What a joy to hear so many accents at this graduation, a symptom of the internationalization of the School," said the Rector.

Flood parks and projects to rehabilitate neighborhoods

Students currently graduated in Architecture have ahead of the completion of their Final Project of Studies, a work in which they condense the knowledge acquired in all the competences required by the architect profession: urban planning, construction, structures, facilities, projection ... and that It reflects the double technical and humanistic vision of the trade, which forces to be involved in the environment and society.

Proof of this are the last final works in Architecture presented at the UPCT, in which the already architects presented ambitious proposals to regenerate neighborhoods and improve the life of the population.

Like the TFG of Juan Jesús López in which he designed the first epilepsy center in Spain or the design of Alba Miró of a medical center for neuromuscular patients.

Current academic works, such as the flood park project in the Rambla de Benipila de José Galindo or the Virginia Ruiz posidonia research center.

Designs that transcend Architecture to address social and urban problems, such as the intergenerational school proposed by Marta Muñoz to revitalize Monte Sacro, the comprehensive intervention in Los Mateos posed by Antonio López or the commitment to public spaces for the El Carmen neighborhood that has expressed by María Martínez.

The tutors of these last students, Marcos Ros and Fernando García, emphasize from their Urban Research Laboratory that "the architectural proposals of the students are a contribution to society".

New location

The ETSAE begins on Monday the classes of the new course in the spectacular Marine Instruction Barracks (CIM), an eighteenth century building rehabilitated and located in front of the Port of Cartagena to which the School has moved while its new headquarters are being built.

Also Monday is reopened, until Friday, the pre-enrollment in the two degrees taught, Fundamentals in Architecture and Building Engineering.
