TelecomBCN (Template:Lang-ca) is an engineering school of the Technical University of Catalonia.
TelecomBCN is the largest telecommunications engineering school in Spain.
The school's objective is to train engineers in the fields of information and communication technologies. The school offers two study programs that culminate in two different official degrees: one in telecommunications engineering, with two majors (Communications and Telematics Networks)) and the other in Electronic engineering. In the academic year 2004/2005 the school started a new Master of Science degree in Information and Communications technologies taught entirely in English. Currently, the school has over 2500 students.
The school's location is at the North Campus of Barcelona 20 minutes away of the center of the city. You can get there easily with public transport. The easiest way to arrive is using the green line of the underground and getting off at Palau Reial or Zona Universitaria stations. It is expected that a new line (black) will communicate the school directly with the airport at 2012.
