50 years ago our classrooms received its first students from ETSIT Conde de Penalver. Since then, in a collective effort of students, teachers and administrative staff and services, with the collaboration and support of major institutions and companies in the ICT sector, these facilities of Campus Moncloa have left more than 13,000 excellent professionals who constitute one of the pillars of the modernization of our country.
Our school also contributes to the generation and dissemination of key technologies that sustain the society of knowledge, one of its hallmarks is the volume and quality of R & D performed in the school. A research activity constantly evolving and adapted to successive waves of technology that have characterized recent decades.
The celebration of this anniversary is a unique opportunity both to recognize and claim this past, and to reflect on the need to reinvent ourselves to face the challenges of the future. To do this, in the coming months we will make numerous activities -exhibitions , seminars, conferences, scientific meetings, publications aimed at disseminating ...- our role as dean School and reference center in training and research in the ICT field.

A story that we will continue building together.
