The 2022-2023 academic year has started at TecnoCampus with a higher than expected number of first-year degree enrollments. In total, and with those enrolled in September, 934 students have started the course, 8.6% more than the 860 of the previous year. The good evolution in terms of enrollment for new access in practically all of the 15 degrees and double degrees that are taught at the TecnoCampus has thus made it possible to exceed the forecasts that had been made at the beginning of the university pre-registration period in the month of June.
The most numerous grade in terms of students starting the first year is Nursing, with a total of 95 students assigned. It is followed by the degree in Audiovisual Media, with 92 students, and that of Business Administration and Innovation Management, with 80 new students, to which must be added the 43 who will study this same degree with the teaching modality in English.
Especially positive are, likewise, the new access enrollment data in the case of industrial engineering (78 students) and computer science (61 students, and another 38 in the double degree in Computer Science and Video Games).
The TecnoCampus values these data very positively, which "show the strength of the city's university project, closely linked to the Pompeu Fabra University, to which its undergraduate, postgraduate and master's degree studies are attached", as explained by the center.
Precisely, one of the challenges that the institution faces this academic year is the integration of the three university schools (the Higher Polytechnic School, the Higher School of Social and Business Sciences and the Higher School of Health Sciences) in a single center , the TecnoCampus University Center, which will continue to be attached to the Pompeu Fabra University.
Linked to this process, an open selection process was carried out in July to appoint a new director of the single center. The person chosen is Elisa Sayrol, who joins the TecnoCampus this October, depending on the general management.
Sayrol has a solid track record in the field of academic management. She has been director of the Higher Technical School of Telecommunication Engineering of Barcelona, where she has also held the position of deputy director of International Relations. She was also vice-rector for Institutional Relations at UPC, and for the last three years, academic director, as a delegate of the rector, of the EIT Urban Mobility project. Sayrol is a doctor in Telecommunications, full professor since 2001 and member of a research group in image and video processing for data processing by artificial intelligence. Internationally, she has carried out research stays for three years at two universities in the United States.
