National Role

Universidad San Pablo CEU is part of the largest and most traditional private education institution in Spain, CEU, founded in 1933 by the Catholic Association of Propagandists (ACdP). In the Community of Madrid, we were the first to offer a new way of understanding and managing higher education, first as a University College and, since 1933, as a private University. 

The Institute of Technology has been training architects for over 50 years and plays a crucial role in the national panorama.

Main Focus

The Institute of Technology's main focus is oriented toward BA, with a strong backbone in research. Ceu has been training architects for over 50 years and in the past two decades has included other disciplines.

The Institute of Technology organizes a wide range of value-added activities as a fundamental part of its academic excellence program. In this sense, master classes are arranged for Professors and invited architects of national and international renown such as Rafael Moneo, John Barton (Stanford University), or Charles Waldheim, of Harvard University, joint studios with Universities such as Massachusetts Institute of Technology, visits and study trips to other countries of Europe, Asia and America, competitions and other complementary activities that perfect and complete the training acquired in the classroom.
