The Hyperloop team of the Universitat Politècnica de València will install in Cheste the test track to test their new subsonic train prototype. Once built, it will become the first lane of this type installed in Spain and one of the few in Europe. The team intends to carry out all the tests and validations for the Hyperloop Pod Competition IV.

Hyperloop is an idea of ​​means of transport based on a system of large vacuum tubes, which circulate some capsules capable of transporting passengers and goods with speeds of more than 1,000 km / h. At the end of 2015, the visionary Elon Musk launched the Hyperloop Pod Competition and encouraged students from around the world to participate by proposing ideas. Since then, the competition has held three editions, in which the UPV team has established itself as one of the best in the world.


The first Hyperloop test rail in Spain.

Shortly, work will begin on the Ricardo Tormo Circuit, an area that has a capacity of 120,000 spectators and which hosts different scoring events of the Motorcycling World Championship. The length of the track will oscillate between 100 and 300 meters, which will allow the team to carry out studies on the suspension, navigation and levitation systems. It will be the first Hyperloop test track in our country and one of the few of this type that Europe currently has. The idea is to arrive ready for the competition that will take place in Los Angeles from July 15 to 21, 2019, and be able to fight for the victory.

Sponsor 1 meter of rail

To achieve the test track that presents the best performance, the team has launched a microwdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Thanks to this initiative, everyone can sponsor one meter of the road (or more), and leave their name inscribed in one of the most exciting transportation projects of the future.
Although the team has exceeded the first objective, the campaign is still open until Thursday, April 25, 2019. If you want to help the 40 students who make Hyperloop UPV, do not hesitate.

On March 15 he will explain to us at a general level how an airline or commercial operator works, that is, the regulations that it must follow, the structure of it, the functions of the different departments that compose it and the organizations with which it must collaborate to be able to carry out its tasks and achieve its objectives.

Nazariy holds the post of Compliance Control Auditor, which is part of one of the departments of an airline.

It will explain what your work is and what other opportunities exist in a commercial operator (or in an organization that usually works together with the commercial operator) that may be interesting for an aeronautical engineer.

Finally, we will make a brief summary of his professional experience and will expose a series of conclusions that he has derived from it, in the form of advice that may be interesting and useful for someone recently graduated in Aerospace Engineering.

On March 5, the I Info-Day of the EDIBO Project (European Digital Bootcamps) took place at the School of Design Engineering of the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV). The event was aimed at presenting the project to the university community, the business community and the general public. The event was opened by Ms. Rosa Puchades Pla, Vice-Chancellor of Social Responsibility and Cooperation of the UPV; Mr. Juan A. Monsoriu Serra, Director of the ETS of Design Engineering at the UPV; Mrs. Silvia Terrasa Barrena, Director of the ETS of Computer Engineering of the UPV; and D. Manuel Civera Salvador, Mayor of Llíria. All of them agreed on the importance of developing initiatives that provide solutions to youth unemployment and that, therefore, as highlighted by Ms. Rosa Puchades, are included in the commitments of the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development. Afterwards, the researcher responsible for the EDIBO project, D. Lenin G. Lemus Zúñiga, a researcher at the UPV, gave an overview of the problem in which the project is based on a set of data on youth unemployment in Spain and the business demand of experts in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Then the round table began on the theme “Knowledge and key competences to promote the labor insertion of young people in the ICT sector ” They participated in her D. Josep Enric García, manager of EMT Valencia; Mr. Ernesto del Valle Blanco, director of Human Resources and manager of the Alfatec ICT Training Center; Ms. Marga Aparicio Martínez from the Chamber of Commerce of Valencia; Mrs. Silvia Cuixeres Torres, Head of Purchasing Central Innovative and Sustainable Services of the Diputación de Valencia; Ms. Malak Kubessi Pérez, Head of the Orientation, Training and Employment Section of the UPV; and Ms. Begoña Sáiz Mauleón, researcher of the EDIBO Project and professor at the UPV. Mr. José Manuel Catalá Civera, director of the ITTAC institute of the UPV, moderated the interventions.

The different contributions served to create a moment of shared reflection on the situation of young people at risk of social exclusion. In addition, each speaker presented the initiatives that their institutions or companies were carrying out to improve the employability of the youth sector as well as to respond to the demands of companies in the field of ICTs. A small debate was then generated in the that also attended the event. Among other aspects, the gap between university and business was addressed; and the need to strengthen ICT training to improve both the employability of young people and respond to the need for computerization of companies.


What is EDIBO?

The EDIBO project is sponsored by the EEA and Norway Grants Fund for Youth Employment and in which the UPV participates along with institutions from five other European countries: Latvia, Lithuania, Bulgaria, Greece and Italy. The UPV group, led by Lenin G. Lemus Zúñiga, consists of 11 researchers from the UPV belonging to the ICT Group vs. Climate Change of the University Institute of Information and Communication Technologies (ITACA). EDIBO is based on an innovative approach , inspired by the Rapid Technology Skills Training of the World Bank. At first, the set of collaborating companies defines their needs in ICT and training programs are developed from them. This training is offered to a group of young people between 25 and 29 years old at risk of social or labor exclusion, who are neither studying nor working. After the training period, the students carry out an internship in one of the collaborating companies, being able to obtain a labor contract at the end. At the end of the 36 months of the project, in 2021, EDIBO will have involved 1050 young Europeans forming them in the ICT sector and reactivating their labor insertion capacities.

The Universitat Politècnica de València will be the only Spanish in the final phase. Of the 300 teams presented from around the world, only about twenty pass the cut.

Turian is the name of the third prototype of the UPV. With this project, the Valencian team hopes finally to achieve victory in this fourth edition

The team of more than forty students of the Universitat Politècnica de València has been classified, again, for the final phase of the Hyperloop Pod Competition IV, organized by the US company SpaceX, a benchmark in the aerospace field. The competition will take place in the city of Los Angeles next July 2019.

One more year, and there are four consecutive years, the UPV will be among the best teams in the world and will be able to present its fully functional prototype before the judges of the competition. Of the 300 aspirants from all over the world who have tried it on this occasion, only a score have managed to qualify for the final round. No other Spanish team has ever managed to overcome these first tests.

And is that these initial phases are tremendously demanding and only two out of 30 proposals pass the cut. It is required to write an extensive document with all the technical details of what will be a posteriori prototype built and defend by videoconference the feasibility of the design.

Hyperloop, the transport of the future
Hyperloop is an idea of ​​means of transport based on a system of large vacuum tubes, which circulate some capsules capable of transporting passengers and goods that reach speeds of more than 1,000 km / h in a completely sustainable way. The goal is to connect the most important cities in the world to make life easier for people.

At the end of 2015, the visionary Elon Musk launched a university competition with his company SpaceX and encouraged students from all over the world to participate in the competition by proposing ideas. Since then, the Hyperloop Pod Competition has held three editions, which have served to develop innovative solutions, as well as recruit the best students.

Hyperloop UPV, from the beginning among the best in the world
The UPV has not missed any of these competitions. In the first edition, held in February 2016, the Valencian project was surprised to win the award for Best Conceptual Design and the Best Propulsion System. A year later, the team partnered with Purdue University (USA) and managed to be in the top 10 with its built prototype, the Atlantic II.

The following design, already totally Valencian, came to lead the competition in the summer of 2018. In fact, he managed to overcome a total of 50 tests and validations before suffering an electrical breakdown that prevented him from continuing. Finally, Valentia repeated his position in the list of winners, among the top 10, ahead of such prestigious universities as Berkeley or Michigan.

Year after year, the requirement of SpaceX and the level of universities increase exponentially. In the opinion of the students who have participated in its editions, Hyperloop is one of the most complicated engineering competitions on the planet. Hyperloop UPV, consolidated as one of the best teams in the world, will finally seek victory in this new edition.

Turian, a prototype to win
The students are now working against the clock to realize their third prototype, which has been baptized as Turian. Hyperloop UPV remains committed to the goal of showing its Valencian origins throughout the world, so the name chosen refers to the river that crosses the city.

The Hyperloop Pod Competition IV will take place in July 2019. It will then be when Turian tries to drive at the maximum speed possible in a nearly 1.5 km vacuum tube, which SpaceX has built in front of its headquarters in Hawthorne, California

Hyperloop UPV has the support of more than 50 companies and institutions that are firmly committed to innovation and university talent. However, the team is convinced that such a large project requires the maximum possible support, so it encourages more companies to get on this train and revolutionize the world of transport.

José Puchau, associate professor of the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering of the Universitat Politècnica de València (DIMM-UPV), professor of the ETSID in the MUDFIAC master and engineering director of the KAMAX Group in his Museros plant, has been awarded with the Prize for the Best Personal Success Project at the KPI-Award Ceremony gala held at the Mercedes Benz Gallery in Berlin (Germany).

Puchau, responsible for the creation of the Valencia Training Center in 2014, has accumulated 22 years dedicated to the training of professionals – more than 1,500 and more than 50 manuals and 400 operational videos.

KAMAX is a multinational of production of fastening elements and complex cold forming parts with 12 sites around the world. With more than 3,500 employees, its turnover exceeds 750 million euros per year.

The effort of a team “whose main task is production, not training”

Satisfied by the recognition, the associate professor of the UPV has pointed out that the merit is “the effort of a whole team whose main task is production, not training, yet, despite everything, time has been taken, not You know where to do all the training tasks. ”

Formative tasks of relevance that Puchau has led in the KAMAX offices in China, the Czech Republic, the United States and Germany. At the time of awarding the prize, KAMAX has also taken into account the implementation of the DUAL Training, which allows young Valencians to work in the United States, Germany and, as of this year, also in Mexico.

Asynchronous, the team of the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV) composed of the students Pablo Marino Velasco Pla (Higher Technical School of Industrial Engineers) and José Pablo Ferrer Báguena (Higher Technical School of Design Engineering), and Professor Carlos Roldán Porta (Department of Electronic Engineering), has won the first SIMARIS Design challenge, convened by the multinational Siemens.

The contest, which had as its objective the elaboration of an electrical network project of a facility using Siemens design software, SIMARIS Design, has celebrated its final phase at the company’s headquarters in Spain, located in Tres Cantos, where they have faced the 8 teams that overcame the online qualifying phase, which took place from 10 to 25 November last year.

The final has been sponsored by Ana Campón, financial director of Siemens Spain, and Juan Miguel Pérez de Andrés, general manager of Siemens Energy Management, the division responsible for this design software. Both have coincided in the quality of the work of the students and the philosophy of Siemens to reward the talent of its employees and to seek the best new profiles of the market to join the company.

Trip to the TIP center in Germany

The prize for the winning team is a three-day trip to the Total Integrated Power (TIP) center in Germany. There, they will meet the developers of SIMARIS applications and assist in the use and implementation of Siemens solutions for energy distribution using SIMARIS Design software.

Likewise, Siemens Spain will offer the two winning students the possibility of professional internships in one of the company’s centers. The participating universities have also received a user license for SIMARIS Design in its professional version.

Another UPV team, on the podium

In addition to the winning team, the UPV has had another presence on the podium of the competition, as the jury of the contest has recognized two other finalists, M & A, formed by Alejandro Martín Barreales and Manuel Moreno González, students also of the UPV tutored Carlos Roldán, and Industriales 4, a team made up of Carlos Sánchez Núñez, Javier López Ortiz and Professor Rosa María de Castro Fernández, belonging to the Higher Technical School of Industrial Engineers of Madrid.

The SIMARIS Design Challenge was aimed at undergraduate or master university students who were studying a subject related to electrical installation projects. The teams had to be constituted by two students and by a professor of their university, in representation of the university center in which they were enrolled.

FSUPV Team, the Formula Student team – a course aimed at students from universities around the world that promotes engineering excellence and where students design, build and develop a single-seat – from the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV), continues its rise unstoppable.

Not in vain, according to the recent update of the world ranking, it already occupies the 12th position, being the third best European team and the only Spanish combustion within the 200 most outstanding internationally.

“These are data that we thought impossible to achieve 5 years ago, when the team started designing their first car,” says Víctor Forner, coordinator of FSUPV, “but with each new prototype, we were discovering that we were capable, year after year, of putting on track, a car getting better and better. ”

In 2019, for the 4 most important tests in Europe

Already the idea is not to stop. Not in vain, this year, FSUPV intends to participate in the four most important competitions in Europe: East, Austria, Germany and Spain. In each of them, “the objective will be to continue advancing, demonstrating that a young team, but well coordinated, is capable of conquering the highest positions”.

This would not have been possible “without the support received from the UPV, which we want to thank, as well as sponsors, family and friends,” he adds.

Formula Student: 120 teams from around the world competing in 8 events with their single-seaters

Formula Student is a competition that puts to the test the capacity of the teams outside the track (attending to the organization, viability plan and design of the prototype) and inside it (measuring fundamental aspects for a single-seater). Currently, more than 120 teams from around the world participate.

In total, Formula Student is composed of eight tests, three of them static (where the car does not go to the track) and the other five, dynamic, that is, in circuit. Each one contributes points to the general classification in function of the evaluation of the judges or the times obtained on the asphalt.

3rd in Michigan, 10th in Hockenheim Ring and 5th in Montmeló

This season, the team will compete with the FSUPV-06, the sixth car in the history of the team, which aims to improve historical results, such as the extraordinary third place achieved in the pioneer and most prestigious circuit of the competition: Michigan.

In addition, during the past summer, the team was tenth in Hockenheim Ring (Germany) and fifth in Montmeló, being crowned in both competitions as the best Spanish team.

We inform that the correct time of the conference will be at 3:00 p.m.

We attach the new poster.

Sorry for the inconvenience caused by the error.




This week we advance you in exclusive a very good news. After the videoconference with the SpaceX judges, we have just learned that the Hyperloop UPV team has once again been selected as a finalist for the Hyperloop Pod Competition IV, which will be held next summer in Los Angeles. With this, our team returns to become the only Spanish team and one of the few Europeans that manages to reach the final phase of the competition one more year.

This news will be made official and will be transferred to the media throughout tomorrow.

The team is fully motivated and ready to complete all the work done to date, trying to take our new prototype, Turian from the screen directly to the tube installed in the SpaceX facilities. Therefore, now more than ever, we will need all your support so that together we can fight to win the competition.

Cobaltopus, is the result of an order from the chef Chema Soler of Restaurante la Gastro (Madrid). The creative team formed by our colleague Chele Esteve, professor of ETSID (UPV), Ricardo Moreno, professor of EASD Valencia, Eugenia Boscá, ceramist and Jose Plà, artist who worked together co-designing and sharing all their experience.

If in China gardens are designed by architects, colors are selected from their palette by painters and by poets, in this case something similar happens. It is an example of participatory or cooperative design where each actor contributes his intimate knowledge. “We met at La Gastro in Madrid, in October of last year and we tasted the octopus tapa, surprising in textures, taste, visual … All the senses were opened to us and from this moment the pencils began to smoke”, point out these creative.

The idea and concept correspond to the designers and research professors; Chele Esteve and Ricardo Moreno, the process of artistic, formal and iconic creation is proposed and realized between Eugenia Boscá, ceramist and artist Jose Plà, who selected the motif that would illustrate the plates and trays and the color, cobalt blue. A color widely used both in ancient Egypt where blue crystals, enamels and cobalt paintings were found in numerous objects, as well as in Persian colar beads (III BC)

This set of 8 different pieces in size and shape, has plates and trays designed exprofeso for the XIV National Contest of Pinchos and Tapas City of Valladolid (2018), unique in Spain with representation of all the autonomous communities. The tapa “Okonomiyaki from octopus to Galician”, is made with octopus as the main raw material in fusion with Japanese products. According to the creators of Cobaltopus: “We wanted to reflect the gastronomic, cultural and marine influences where the Mediterranean Sea, the Atlantic Ocean and the Sea of ​​Japan congregate with the octopus as the main element. The cobalt blue transports us to trace a journey through the seas that bathe the Iberian peninsula until we reach the Japanese domains erasing the sea leagues that separated us by the blue color in the glaze processes of ceramics “.

To materialize the design, the technique of transfers in plates and trays is used. Made by hand with plates of different shapes that create a visual set that takes us into an oniric universe of flavors. Transferring the image on ceramics is a sophisticated procedure where cobalt oxide must be well impregnated in the ink on the earthenware. This results in a visual effect as a result that is visible in the second firing once the enamel is applied.

If in the words of Marco Tulio Cicero (106 BC – 43 BC): “The pleasure of banquets should be measured not by the abundance of delicacies, but by the gathering of friends and by their conversation”, you could add the importance of the content and the continent, hence the collaborations between cooking, design, crafts and art mariden to obtain complementary results that invite the diner to live the slow culture.

José Puchau Gadea receives the award for the best personal success project in the “KAMAX KPI-Award Ceremony” held on January 25, 2019 at the “Mercedes Benz Gallery” in Berlin.

Enrique Ballester Sarrias

Ex-director of the ETSID of the Polytechnic University of Valencia, and honorary president of the Conference of Directors of the Industrial Area

Source: http://www.tecnicaindustrial.es/TIFrontal/a-10144-enrique-ballester-sarrias.aspx




A whole life dedicated to teaching is what defines Enrique Ballester Sarrias. For 32 years, from 1986 to 2018, he has been at the head of the School of Design Engineering of Valencia. Doctor in physical sciences and professor of the ETSID (Department of Systems Engineering and Automation), at the end of last year he left his position as director, after a prolific career, which had begun in 1961, in the company Hidrocivil.

Of all his career as a professor and director of ETSID, what are you most satisfied with?

To start with other colleagues the internships in the company, the international relations and the improvement of the facilities that have allowed to incorporate new teaching methodologies with changes in the academic results of the students. As director, introduce the philosophy of the accreditation of our studies, which has allowed us to have the seals of excellence, EURACE, in our titles, as well as ABET and Pegasus, which, in turn, has contributed to achieve up to six Awards Nationals of the seven that our university received in a year.

What aspects of the University require more urgent solutions?

Change all the legislation that in the Rajoy mandates have blocked the Spanish public university. From the reduction of budget, the limitation of personnel (remember that for every 10 that retired could take a place), the rate increase, the changes of criteria in the allocation of scholarships to the drastic reduction or suppression of investment in research .

Why is innovation so necessary for a country?

We must change education from the first steps, develop teaching models that promote the realization and presentation of prototypes and other works at all levels, especially in the university. We must introduce entrepreneurship and innovation as something substantial in university education, the more our students are able to be entrepreneurs and innovate in their jobs, the better they will be valued and the more wealth will be created in this country.

How do you measure the success of a school in the university?

The success of a center is measured by the quality of its graduates, this quality in the training of students is measured from the accreditation by the ANECA of all the degrees we teach or other international accreditations that we have, the improvement of teaching positions , since we will reach 50 university professors (before we could not have any for being a university school) and what certifies success is due to the quality of our graduates’ work.

“The success of a center is measured by the quality of its graduates, and in the training of students is measured from the accreditation by the ANECA”

“We have had double and triple degrees, which has favored that we have graduates working all over the world”

To what extent is the internationalization of the school important to you?

In 1987, when Erasmus started in the European Union, we encouraged it in such a way that the following year we had students in France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and Portugal. Then we started the Alfa, Tempus projects, which we coordinated from the School of Valencia. A few months ago we published a book that gathered the experiences of teachers, students and PAS [administration and service personnel] from the beginning to the almost 200 that we sent each year, and the 400 that we currently receive. In the 1990s we started having exchanges with the United States. We have had double and even triple degrees, which has favored that we have graduates working all over the world.

During your time as director of ETSID, what steps have you taken in this regard?

In our center, internationalization and business practices and educational innovation are very incorporated, the three pillars in which our study plans are based. There are students who come to Valencia to study for a year, or participate in one of the 1,400 business practices. We have had or have ETSID students from Valencia, the most northerly in Finland, the more east in Japan, the west in the US and Canada, to the south the collaborations with Mexico, Chile, Brazil, Cuba, and with Africa we are developing magnificent collaborative projects for development.

How would you like to be reminded by your students?

As it happens now when you find some who have not seen you for years and who go with your children, and you notice a good tune, comment where they work, highlight some actions that we developed in school and that has served them in their professional lives. I love that they remember me as a friend they could and can access, who has always been willing to listen and support everyone.

Since you began your professional career, have you noticed significant changes among students?

And in the teaching staff? The students arrive with different abilities and abilities different from those they brought years ago; in general, they have more command of other languages, a wider digital culture and many already know other countries and cultures. The teachers of our schools have made great efforts to adapt to the technologies that we use today as support for teaching, as well as their incorporation to research to be able to be accredited to new positions, although I would like to have more teachers who would have practiced their profession as an engineer. in the industrial world, but that activity is valued little for accreditations.

Spanish engineers are well valued abroad. What would you say are your strengths?

In the last 30 years, the implantation of Erasmus opened the possibility that many students (some 3,000 in the school of Valencia) finished their studies in other countries, there they realized that their training overall was as good as that of their classmates from other countries. In most cases they emphasize that their training is of a broader engineer profile; As an example, a mechanic of ours also has knowledge of electricity, automation, economics, all of which makes them easily incorporated into different work environments.

“Students arrive with different abilities, they have more command of other languages ​​and a wider digital culture than before”

”The teachers of our schools have made great efforts to adapt to the technologies used as support in teaching”

In general, do you consider that university studies are currently adjusted to the real needs of the labor market?

I usually tell the students that in many cases they will be hired for the first part of the name of their title, engineer, and other times for the second part aeronautical, mechanical, electronic, chemical industrial design. The first part is well worked and is very common in different countries, the second part enters into the debate of whether it has to be very specialized or of a wide spectrum. Personally I would leave the new specializations for a postgraduate education.

From 1986 to 2006 he was president of the Conference of Directors of Industrial Technical Engineering Schools and, subsequently, he has held the position of vice president, since 2012. What are the main actions and claims he has carried out?

In May of 1986 I was chosen by the team of Minister Maravall to represent the directors of Industrial Technical Engineering in group V of the University Reform; In the last quarter of 1986, I called all the directors of the university schools (EUITI) to take the proposals of our collective to the working group. I have led the proposals that have allowed to have bachelor’s degrees of four years and 240 credits, belonging to group A1. In the white paper presented at the ANECA, I feel very satisfied that deans of schools and more than 250 professors from 40 public universities participated. Collegiate of Honor of the Colleges of Madrid and Valencia and Insignia de Oro by the Galician IT Industrial Council.

What do these distinctions mean to you? How is your relationship with professional associations?

Personally, it is an honor. It means that the schools that continue the work that we do in school consider you to be one more graduate. In most cases, relations with national deans and presidents have been good; in fact, we count on them in the University Congresses of Educational Innovation in the Technical Teachings (CUIEET) and in the elaboration of the proposals of titles and contents. In the school in which I have been director there are classrooms dedicated to illustrious professors that we have had, and in the Hall of Degrees to a dean and national president, Francisco Garzón.

Following the acknowledgments, how do you remember the moment you received the Cross of the Civil Order of Alfonso X El Sabio, granted by the Minister of Education on behalf of D. Juan Carlos I King of Spain, in December 2010?

A great personal joy, for my family and for my school. The act, in March 2011, was very beautiful. The delegate of the Government came for the imposition, and in the subsequent meal we also celebrated the 25th anniversary of the director. The petition had accessions of secretaries of state, general directors, deans, school directors, companies and alumni.

Have you already thought about your new projects?

I am enjoying more of the family, I am still managing final year projects and final year projects and I am preparing a book about my work in educational innovation.

Researchers and students of the UPV devise and develop a bot to combat overweight and obesity, affecting 54.5% of the Spanish population

[ 29/01/2019 ]

A team of researchers from the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV), belonging to the BDSLab Group of the ITACA Institute led by Juan Miguel García Gómez, has developed Wakamola, a bot that will help to know the nutritional and physical activity habits of the population with the object of facilitating the treatment of two global health problems such as, at present, obesity and overweight.

Not in vain, according to data from the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 50% of the European population is overweight, and 20%, obesity. And, despite being the cradle of the Mediterranean diet, in Spain, the situation is similar.

Thus, in the last 30 years, obesity in Spanish adults has gone from affecting 7.4% in 1987, to 17.4% in 2017; while 37.1% of the population of the state suffers from overweight. In total, therefore, more than half of adults (54.5%) are overweight.

Simulates a conversation with the user from which the information is extracted

According to García Gómez, principal investigator of a work carried out within the framework of the European project CrowdHealth, Wakamola is a bot that, through Telegram, simulates a conversation with the user about his diet, physical activity, diseases, age, weight, networks social, etc.

The subsequent analysis of this information will create a network of relationships to study the habits of the population in relation to their diet, physical activity, environment, family network, work and friendships.

An attractive, fun and usable bot baptized and designed by students of the ETSID-UPV

In this sense, Sabina Asensio Cuesta, researcher of the BDSLab Group, points out that a “remarkable aspect of Wakamola is the hard work done to build an attractive, playful and usable character for the users”.

To do this, researchers have developed different scripts and carried out an exhaustive study to choose the most appropriate design for the bot, for which they conducted a survey of 495 people on 52 possible designs proposed by students of the School of Engineering Design (ETSID) of the UPV.

From this survey arose the name, Wakamola, in addition to the character, designed by the students of the ETSID-UPV Mª Dolores Blanco, Ángel Esteban and Marta Lavall.

“The objective,” says Asensio Cuesta, “is for Wakamola to help collect a large amount of data from a population on their nutritional habits, physical activity, body mass index, obesity-related diseases and overweight, etc. At the same time, The bot will allow us to determine the importance of the environment on each user, for example, where he lives and with whom he relates (house, family or friends) .The analysis of the data collected by Wakamola can be very useful when preparing actions to try to solve the serious problem of overweight and obesity that our society faces “.

How does it work?

Vicent Blanes Selva, researcher at BDSLab-ITACA of the UPV and bot developer in collaboration with Taipei Medical University (Shabbir Syed and Yu-Chuan Li) explains that the operation of Wakamola is “very simple.” From Telegram, the user establishes a conversation with the bot, with questions ranging from your age or weight, to the type of food or the times of the week that you exercise, depending on the user’s answers, a score (Wakaestado) is shown between 0 and 100, depending on your nutritional habits and physical activity, diseases, body mass index and Wakaestado scores of your network, the bot also allows you to see the breakdown of Wakaestado corresponding to diet, activity, BMI, diseases and social network “.

On the other hand, for the adequate elaboration of the content and score of Wakamola’s questions about diet, physical activity and personal data (sociodemographic and of diseases), the advice of Ana Frígola, from the Faculty of Pharmacy of the University of València, as well as doctors Juan Francisco Merino Torres, Matilde Rubio Almanza, Salvador Tortajada and Ruth Vilar Mateo, all of them from the Hospital Universitari i Politècnic La Fe.

Pilot study in Tavernes de la Valldigna

Wakamola is being used, for the first time, in Tavernes de la Valldigna. Thanks to the collaboration of the town hall of the city, until the end of February, this Valencian town will house the pilot study.

Alberto Conejero researcher of the Wakamola project and member of the IUPAC Institute of the UPV, indicates that the inhabitants of Tavernes de la Valldigna “can participate voluntarily in this work, in the same way that, for years, it has been done to the American population of Framingham with in order to study the risk factors of coronary heart disease. ”

Finally, note that, to know the bot Wakamola and participate in this pilot study, just look at Telegram @WakamolaTavernesBot or access the following link.

A student of the Master of Design of ETSID wins the XXIII Industrial Design Competition of the Furniture with Plier Bureau, a reinvention of the traditional secreter

[ 08/01/2019 ]

Plier Bureau, the furniture designed and realized by the student of the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) Jon Ander Acarregui, has been recognized with the first prize of the 23rd edition of the International Furniture Design Industrial Competition, organized by the Technological Center of the Furniture and Wood of the Region of Murcia (CETEM).

The design of Jon Ander, which has been imposed among the more than 40 projects submitted, from countries such as Mexico, Germany or the United States, in addition to Spain, has received 3,000 euros as a prize and the industrial registration of the project.

Reinvention of the secreter

With Plier Bureau, Acarregui wants to recover the tradition of the secreter, furniture with drawers and a writing board practically in disuse. And he wants to reinvent it with his mind set on young people who want to save space without losing the functionality offered by their storage drawers, in addition to their built-in bookshelf and light.

The qualities of this piece, manufactured by Muebles Orga, make it also attractive for use in hotel rooms or halls.

The origin

Regarding the origin of the idea, it was Amparo Jordá Vilaplana, from the Graphic Engineering Department UPV, who encouraged Jon Ander to participate in the contest when he was studying the subject Product Design for Equipment in the Degree in Engineering in Industrial Design and Development of Products that is taught at the Campus of Alcoy UPV. Currently, Jon Ánder Acarregui holds a Master’s Degree in Design Engineering from the UPV.


The ICIAM congresses are not ‘another congress’. In no other congress is it possible to observe the most relevant advances and the most current topics in such a wide variety of aspects related to mathematics and its applications.

With 27 plenary speakers, 5 recipients of the prestigious ICIAM awards and 3 recipients of SIAM awards, the set of ‘distinguished’ conferences given at ICIAM 2019 is extraordinary, but there is much more. With an ‘Industry Day’, especially dedicated to highlighting the innovative potential of mathematics in the industry, and the wide variety of presentations in minisymposium format, oral contribution or poster, it will be difficult to choose what you want to occupy your time during the congress.

With more than 3000 attendees, ICIAM 2019 is the perfect opportunity to establish new contacts, contemplate new potential research lines, broaden job prospects and much more. You will not have another similar opportunity so close to your usual place of work in decades.

Meet and get to know the international community!


That ICIAM 2019 takes place in Valencia is not a coincidence. The strong development of research in mathematics in Spain in recent decades has undoubtedly contributed to achieving this milestone.
The success of ICIAM 2019 and its media coverage will undoubtedly help society to become aware of the effort made in our community to connect mathematics with all kinds of applications.
Your participation in ICIAM 2019 makes this effort visible, contributing to revalue the work of all professionals who use mathematics in their daily activity, both before the international community and in our most direct environment.
Let’s make ICIAM 2019 serve to reinforce and consolidate the image of our community!

SAFEman, the advanced system to improve the protection of firefighters and their communication with emergency centers before a forest fire created by Jorge Sancho Muñoz, student of the Degree in Aerospace Engineering at the School of Design Engineering of the Polytechnic University of València (ETSID-UPV), has been proclaimed winner of the Comunidad Valenciana Challenge of the European Satellite Navigation Competition (ESNC). It is also the second time that, consecutively, Jorge Sancho achieves the victory in the aforementioned contest. In addition, it should be noted that SAFEman has been chosen by the European GNSS Agency as one of the ten best projects of this year.

A bracelet and a system integrated in the helmet

SAFEman is made up of two devices: a small bracelet (similar to those usually used for sports) that is responsible for monitoring the firefighter, and an integrated system in the fireman’s helmet that includes all electronic elements, antennas, etc. , in addition to some signal lights for, in case of poor visibility, to be located more quickly. In case of forest fire, SAFEman allows to have located in real time – through GALILEO, the European GPS – to all the members of the fire brigade, so that you can see if the fire is enclosing them and, in such case , trace the most optimal escape route. In addition, the wristband allows the firefighter to send an emergency signal to the control center, or if it detects that the firefighter is on the ground and does not move, or has the pulse too high or too low, directly, an emergency signal is triggered for your evacuation.

Continuous monitoring at a relatively low cost

“The system,” explains Jorge Sancho, “allows continuous monitoring of emergency equipment at a relatively low cost and individually, instead of having just located a point, which would be the entire brigade.” In addition, a communications network is formed between the fire brigade to get the signal to the control center. “In case this is not possible, for example, in a very closed valley, you can use my idea from last year, Stratolloon, as a high altitude repeater to get the signal,” says Sancho.

Stratolloon, his previous success

David Argilés, managing director of the Valencian Space Consortium and coordinator of the contest in the Valencian Community, affirms that, with his triumph of this year, “Jorge Sancho has become the first person to win two consecutive editions, which is worth mentioning taking into account the high quality of the proposals we receive. ” In 2017, his Stratolloon project was also selected as the best in the whole Valencian Community and chosen among the ten best in Europe. Stratolloon is the first system in the world that guarantees the controlled landing of payloads from the ground to the stratosphere and vice versa. In addition, it also incorporates a monitoring application that remains active throughout the flight. “Likewise,” adds Sancho, “in the future, Stratolloon will serve as a communication platform for exceptional situations, so that it will avoid having to locate base stations on land, which SAFEman could benefit from”.

X European Satellite Navigation Competition

The European Satellite Navigation Competition, which celebrates its tenth edition this year, rewards the best services, products and innovations that use satellite navigation in everyday life. Its long-term objective is to strengthen Europe’s competitiveness with high-tech space solutions on a global scale. The coordination of the European Satellite Navigation Competition in the Valencian Community is carried out from the Valencian Space Consortium, in collaboration with the five scientific parks of the same: Espaitec – Parc Científic, Tecnològic i Empresarial (Universitat Jaume I de Castelló), Polytechnic City of Innovation (UPV), Parc Científic (Universitat de València), Scientific – Business Park (Miguel Hernández University of Elche) and Alicante Science Park (Universitat d’Alacant).

A team of Makers UPV, the student community of the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) that transcends the merely academic field, has achieved victory in one of the 11 categories of Junction, the largest hackaton in Europe, held at the University of Aalto (Espoo, Finland), in which they have also achieved the 4th place in the general classification. The team, integrated by Jaime Laborda Macario and Iván Torres Játiva, both students of electronic engineering; Enrique Miralles Dolz, of nuclear fusion engineering; Joaquín Montesinos Muñoz, of telecommunications engineering; and Matías Fernández Patón, of biomedical engineering; has been imposed in the Future Cities category with GuideMe, pocketing a cash prize of 1,000 euros. In the hackaton, carried out in collaboration with the Movesense platform, more than 1,400 developers from around 100 from different countries have participated, who have had to face the challenges posed by fifty prestigious companies of Facebook, Daimler, Supercell, Nokia or Intel.

GuideMe, the definitive solution to improve mobility for the elderly and people with disabilities in a connected city

To achieve its success, Jaime, Iván, Enrique, Joaquín and Matías developed GuideMe, a comprehensive solution for the exterior orientation of the elderly or disabled in a connected city, through a fully functional cane that provides clear and concise directions to move between different points of the city, improving their quality of life. The system, which in turn allows the instant sending of information to avoid slopes or sidewalks in poor condition, or know the real state of the traffic lights, is open to implementation in public places such as hospitals or train stations, in addition to facilitating emergency interventions.

Development of proof of concept prototype

In the words of the award-winning team, they have developed “a proof-of-concept prototype to test and demonstrate the technology.” The walking stick concept test consists primarily of an intelligent handle with some electronic components, such as an LED array with a compass. digital (MicroBit) and a WiFi node to transmit all the information between the GuideMe smart stick and the web application server and the GUI. ” In turn, “the electronics of the handle consists of a MicroBit board with a 5×5 LED array and a digital compass connected to an ESP8266 WiFi microcontroller that acts as an IoT node to transmit information to and from the server. It is integrated in a handle printed in 3D as a box with the stick.The MicroBit board is programmed using MicroPython, an efficient implementation of the Python 3 programming language optimized to run on microcontrollers.Wemos ESP8266 is programmed using Arduino IDE, a creation platform of open-source electronic prototypes that allows users to create interactive electronic objects. ” “In addition,” they add, “we have also developed a graphical user interface for demonstration purposes that indicates in real time the location of the older person holding the club, which could be used by adults to know the location of their relatives. The web application is updated with every movement that the elderly person makes and is able to optimize the best way to reach the objective location “. “For the web application, the backend API is developed entirely using PHP and is combined with HTML, CSS, JS, JQuery and AJAX for the interface”, the winners conclude.

Juan Roberto Robles and Víctor Callejas, members of Makers UPV, the student community of the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) that transcends the purely academic field, have overcome the local phase of Space App Challenge, the international hackathon that NASA convenes annually for developers, designers, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs or students, who are invited to try to solve one or several proposed challenges.  

Space App Valencia took place from October 19 to 21, simultaneously with its completion in more than 200 cities around the world. It was attended by 60 participants divided into 6 teams, of which only 2 have achieved access to the final phase of the Space App Challenge, where they will compete with the rest of the projects nominated globally.  

Callejas, student of the Degree in Computer Engineering (ETSINF-UPV), and Robles, student of the Degree in Aerospace Engineering (ETSID-UPV), form the Space Odyssey team, which finished in second place the aforementioned local phase with Hal 9000, an assistant spatial design with self-scalable architecture that notifies and informs about new releases, besides helping to solve doubts about space and even create works of art.  

They aspire to repeat the successes of Space Helmet and Mars UPV  

Thus, Space Odyssey, also awarded in the local phase with the Best Concept Mission award, aims to repeat the successes achieved by students of the UPV in 2016, when Mars UPV reached the top 5 of the international contest, or in 2014, year in which Space Helmet was proclaimed absolute winner of the Space Apps Challenge in the Public Decision category.  

Now, it will be necessary to wait until the beginning of December, date in which the 30 finalist projects will be announced and, in case of reaching this milestone, in mid-January 2019, which will be when the jury of the contest makes the winning projects public. . Good luck!

Next Friday, November 23, the ETSID Library will be closed in the afternoon.

It will only be open in the morning, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

A massive open online course of the UPV, “Basic Spanish: One more step”, among the 50 best in the world

Class Central Ranking

The massive open online course (MOOC) "Basic Spanish: One more step", taught by the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV), 
has become one of the 50 best in the world.

This is what we recognize in the Central Class ranking, the world's leading reference in this type of analysis and in its prestigious 
classification through objective evaluation criteria.

Only Spanish course present in the ranking

In addition, it is a unique Spanish course included in the ranking, for which more than 10,000 MOOCs have been analyzed around 800 universities 
around the world. Therefore, it is the best valued course of all those offered in the set of Spanish universities.

Prepared by professors Ana Gimeno and Cristina Navarro, the course is designed for English speakers, offers a wide variety of content, from practical 
exercises, videos, small and audio texts to improve pronunciation, to glossaries, practical activities and questionnaires.
Likewise, it also includes grammar cards and recommendations on external Internet resources to continue learning the language.

The UPV, international reference in the field.

The success of "Basic Spanish: a step beyond" is a further recognition of the extraordinary work that the UPV has been doing for a long time in the field 
of MOOCs. In fact, the institution led by Francisco Mora was one of the principles of this year, the first person who speaks Spanish to surpass one million 
enrollments in edX, the mass open online courses platform promoted by Harvard University and the Massachusets Institute of Technology (MIT).

16 students of the Degree in Aerospace Engineering UPV, before a challenge: build the first ultralight university plane in Spain

A team of 16 students from third and fourth year of the Aerospace Engineering Degree from the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) is working on the construction of the ultralight aircraft Zenith STOL CH 701.

The project, born thanks to the Vicente Silvestre Foundation and Consuelo Juliá, who have donated the plane in pieces -5,000- so that the students can put into practice the knowledge acquired, is coordinated by the UPV professor Carlos Vila Pastor.

“It is an experimental North American aircraft,” explains Vila, “and his name is Zenith STOL CH 701, STOL being the acronym for an experimental plane for takeoff and landing in short spaces.”

“We want to pilot it”

The work team meets every Wednesday at the Pedro Duque hangar of the School of Design Engineering (ETSID-UPV). There, as Carlos Haro explains, “you can learn to apply the theoretical knowledge that is acquired in class after much effort”.

This practice is key for students. In that aspect, Alicia Muñoz says: “I’m learning a lot about the manufacturing part, what I like most is to be in contact with the plane.

In any case, the objective is to take the practice to the end, since, as Vila indicates, “we want to pilot it and be the first Spanish university to have a plane assembled by the aerospace engineering students themselves”.

Monitoring and approval of the AESA

To this end, the UPV has requested the Spanish Air Safety Agency (AESA) to monitor the assembly, so that, at the end of certain phases of the project, one of the engineers of the agency supervises, in the hangar, that the assembly It is correct and conforms to the aeronautical regulations.

So, if everything goes well, the idea is that by the end of this year the aircraft is completely built and, after the approval of the AESA, the engine and the rest of the ultralight instrumentation, which weighs less than 450 kg and measures 8 meters in span, 6’5 in length and 2 in height.


In the section ETSID, in the tabs Permanent Board, Center Board and Academic Committees, a link has been added to the scheduled meetings.

In the Secretary’s office tab, the drop-down menu of Classrooms and Workshops has been modified, now including their location. Besides, another drop-down has been added with the degree exam calendars corresponding to the 2018-19 course.

Organized by the Master of Graphic Arts / Master in Design Engineering of ETSID, we are invited to this talk, on Thursday, November 15 at 12:45 in the ETSID Degrees Hall …

It is public knowledge that Columbus did not discover America; and it is well known that before Gutenberg, a few pages had been printed. The lesson here, which will be exposed by Professor Diego Vainesman, with a minimum of seriousness, is that who does not announce, does not win. This statement in no way speaks negatively of the Scandinavian communication, (or rather the lack of it), which left the Vikings without their place in history as the first daring who arrived in the new world or the Chinese as the pioneers of the mobile types. Not in any way. This dissertation explores the capacity, almost unlimited, of communication to establish a point that is opposed to the already well-known phrase: “history is written by those who win”.

The true story in this case is written by those who communicate it.

Diego Vainesman, who was president of the Type Directors Club of New York, will present his particular vision of how creativity in communication allows logos, products and, why not, conquerors to be the owners of an exciting visual narrative. A small story in which Diego hopes to share something special about an ancient art, which feels very at home, in a digital and ultra-technological world in which for many, creativity is just a detail that stays in time .

For his work ‘We are all good’

Ana Penyas (Valencia, 1987), graduated by the School of Design Engineering and graduated in Fine Arts from the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV),
 has been awarded the National Comic Award for 2017 for her work We are all all right.

The recognition, granted by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports, also entails a cash prize of 20,000 euros for the Valencian artist, who in 
turn becomes the first woman in history to obtain this award.

Rescue the voice of a silenced generation

At the time of opting for the work of Penyas, the jury has taken into account the author's ability to "rescue, from a family history, the voice of a 
silenced generation" and "the innovation and freshness of the in graphic scene, in addition to the ability to integrate resources of the comic and other

The comic, in the words of the award-winning, "speaks of the elderly, of my grandmothers, but also of many other things, such as historical memory, 
repression, the feminist view of an era ...".

"In fact," he continues, "I chose my grandmothers because they had not done anything supposedly remarkable in their lives: they have been mothers, 
housewives,wives ... and have dedicated themselves to taking care of others, like most of the women of their generation who almost did not have access 
to studies or work  outside the home, there are few female intellectual referents of that generation because they either went into exile or died or 
something happened in their lives. "

Author revelation in the Salón del Cómic de Barcelona

Prior to receiving this prestigious award, Ana Penyas had already received a mention in VI Iberomérica Ilustra por Viaje al interior, and she won the 
seventh edition with Buscando un sitio.

Penyas, who has participated in several exhibitions -both individual and collective-, has published with Thousand Reasons, Books of the KO, the cultural 
web  MipetitMadrid, theHype and the magazine Bostezo, is an illustrator in Pikara Magazine, and was recently awarded as a revelation author in the 
Barcelona Comic Fair.



Our History


The history of the current School of Engineering Design begins with the reform of 1851, it was formalized with the subsequent publication in La Gaceta de Madrid (May 22, 1855 No. 871) of the Royal Decree on the Industrial Schools Plan. In Title III “vocational schools” where the materials and structure of vocational education are articulated, Article 14 says “For now only in Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Seville, Valencia and Vergara will be professional schools”. Since the beginning of its existence, the School of Valencia, like the rest of Spain, it has been subjected to numerous changes in both structure and function, name, etc … not in vain, has always been evenly matched terms “professional”, “application” and “industrial”. That is why, it is complex to tell the story of the School of Valencia, documentation is scarce and often streaky. You can follow the story through its operation or, rather, by the laws that have regulated both academic aspects and the professional attributions . Therefore the current ETSID is an evolution of the center created by Real Decree of 22 May 1855 in the Gaceta de Madrid in the city of Valencia, along with schools in Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Seville and Vergara. Subsequently, the School of Valencia has continued in line form in their classrooms most university graduates who have helped to consolidate the industrial fabric of the Valencia region.

First Studies

In Spain, it can be considered, that studies of industrial engineering starting in the year 1850 by the Royal Decree of the Ministry of Commerce, Education and Public Works, of September 4, in which the Minister, Manuel de Seijas Lozano, proposed to SM Queen Elizabeth II the creation of the Industrial Schools. Industrial in three grades: Elemental, Expansion or Professional and Superior. Curriculum Extension Schools established in the art. 14 of this R.D. School Valencia is already mentioned in the Organic Plan Promoting Schools May 20, 1855, as Minister Francisco de Luxán. Although the teachings and have started in Valencia in 1852. The first reform of industrial teachings was made by Royal Decree of the Ministry of Public Works on September 9, 1857, to enact the “Law of Education” by the Minister Claudio Moyano. In the aforementioned Law School rises Valencia School Superior.Por the rank of Royal Decree of 28 April 1861 authorizing the Industrial School of Valencia to admit exam Bachelor of Mechanical Engineers and Chemists. By Royal Decree of 17 August 1901 the rank of High School of Industry to Valencia is confirmed. During 1906-1907 the Industrial School of Valencia refundó.

School Foundation

As seen, our school is really the oldest of Valencia, which perhaps may surprise more than one and is, therefore, an age which far exceeds the century. However, if you stick to the written documentation available at our Center, the School of Valencia is recast by Royal Decree of 19 December 1906 as Minister of Public Instruction illustrious Valencian Amalio Gimeno. César San Ramon was appointed Commissioner director to lead the process of re-founding of the School of Valencia during the course 1906- 1907. Selected teachers and constituted the cloister was appointed Director Jose Alapont Ibanez, starting to work in the 1907- 1908 course with 150 students about. Initially the classes were held in the municipal building to recayente Street Arzobispo Mayoral, aimed at Normal School, with which classrooms and shared services, but lacking laboratories and workshops. Thanks to the offer made by the industrial Bartolomé Montañés of their own workshops in the industry La Primitiva Valenciana, was able to organize practical lessons.

Avenue Antic Regne

In 1923 it moved its theoretical activities to classrooms Luis Vives 31 May 1925 the then Institute Head of Government, General Primo de Rivera, laid the foundation stone of what which should be the building avenue Antic Regne de Valencia. The extraordinary vitality of our school requires successive enlargements made in 1933, with extended premises for the section metallography, in 1940, with the expansion of the craft workshops and the construction of a new plant for classrooms, and in 1965, construction of the new pavilion Laboratories. Industry High Schools initially depended on the Ministry of Commerce, Education and Public Works. Subsequently was dependence of the Ministry of Grace and Justice in a relatively short time, to be included later in the Ministry of Development. In 1928 and R. D. of 21 December, the Higher Schools of Industries go to the Ministry of Labour and change its name to High Schools Work. By R. D. of September 19, 1931 are included in the Ministry of Public Instruction and Fine Arts under the name School of Industrial Experts. Act of April 29, 1964, on “Technical Education” are renamed Schools of Industrial Engineering.

The Campus U.P.V.

Finally, the General Education Act of 1970 joined the University under the name of University Schools of Industrial Engineering.
