The origin of the Technical University of Madrid (UPM), founded in 1971, dates back during the reign of Carlos the Third in the eighteenth century.  During these years the Higher technical institutes were practically the only ones in our country linked to the teaching of Architecture and Engineering. A large part of the history of Spanish technology has been written by the Schools of Engineering and Architecture.

The Technical University of Madrid holds double recognition as a Campus of International Excellence, a distinction that refers to the quality of its research and teaching activity.
