Barcelona Global, FemCat, the UPC and the UPF create the Foundation Barcelona Education in Science and Technology (BEST)
Barcelona Global, FemCat, the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) and the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) have created the Foundation Barcelona Education in Science and Technology (BEST), which will be in charge of financing the new Degree in Industrial Technologies and Economy UPC-UPF. This interuniversity degree, taught in English and with a strong involvement of the business community, will begin in the 2018-2019 academic year with 40 places.
Joaquim Coello, president of the foundation, says "the creation of the foundation is a great step forward to put excellence in engineering studies on the world map. Engineers are one of the future professions in Europe and are highly sought after for companies, who at the same time ask for their profile to be associated with the economy as well. The union of the UPC and the UPF, together with an international university, is one of the great assets of this project ".
