Welcome to the 3rd Symposium of Applied Research (SAR)

The School of Technology in its 14 years of existence has been characterized by a strong growth, both in terms of its programs, unique in some areas, as well as with its faculty, mainly with the PhD degree or specialist title, and within its facilities, equipped with state-of-the-art laboratories. In its intervention the School of Technology has sought to respond to the development needs of the region in which it is inserted and often anticipating these same needs, so that its students, especially those from postgraduate and master programs, can intervene in the creation of added-value and innovation in the companies where they develop or will develop their professional activity, even when assuming an entrepreneurial attitude to create their own business.

The 3rd Symposium on Applied Research presents a series of projects of the current 2nd-year master students of the programs of Electronics and Computer Engineering, Computers Engineering, Games Development Engineering and Integrated Management Systems (Quality, Environment and Safety). We count with your presence!
