The double degree agreement has been achieved thanks to the close collaboration of the Directorate of the School of Industrial Engineering and professors JosÚ Conde and Jose Andres Moreno with researchers from Stuttgart and especially with the research group led by Gadow.
The University of Stuttgart is a member of TU9 consortium, which groups the nine major universities of science and engineering in Germany.
It has highly valued studies in civil engineering, mechanical and electrical, as well as, especially physical and chemical sciences.
Other international mobility agreements
Example bet UPCT by the international education of its students is the agreement with Edinburgh Napier University (Scotland) schools Industrial, Telecommunications, Architecture and Building Engineering, Roads and Mines, whose students can obtain a double the Scottish university degree, in the final year in UK.
More than fifty students from the Polytechnic have already benefited from this agreement and the employment opportunities it gives them a British degree.
UPCT also has double degree agreements with the University of the Aegean (Turkey), for students of the Master in Advanced Techniques in Research and Agricultural Development and Food (TAIDA);
with the University of Warsaw (Poland), for which they will get a Master's degree grade two students from the Faculty of Business UPCT, and the University of Algarve (Portugal).
All these agreements are reciprocal and allow students of these universities obtain a double degree at the Polytechnic of Cartagena.
