About Seville

Seville University seeks to achieve excellence in research and education through a cross-disciplinary, multi-campus, multi-nation approach. With national boundaries becoming less important, the University believes that its graduates need to understand different cultures, economies and working practices, and that the work of the university's researchers is advanced through collaborations with their counterparts around the world. Developing understanding of Europe, and close connections with its institutions, is an important part of this approach. Through its presence in Europe, Seville University ensures these connections translate into initiatives that benefit students, researchers and the host countries. Advanced studies of Computing at the University of Seville began in the academic year 1985/1986, with the assignment of the degree of Diploma in Computing (Specialties Management and Physical Systems) to the old School of Industrial Engineering. However, the “Escuela Técnica de Ingeniería Informática”, in its current location, was officially opened on July 3, 2001 at Avenue Reina Mercedes within the Campus University of Reina Mercedes.

ETSII now has about 24,000 m2, more than 1500 m2 of gardens and 150 car parking. It also has spaces for the exclusive use of our students, of their business projects, teaching classrooms, library, computing center itself and a research foundation (FIDETIA), besides the usual areas of administration and services.

FIDETIA is the acronym for “Fundación para la Investigación y el Desarrollo de las Tecnologías de la Información en Andalucía” (Foundation for Research and Development of Information Technology in Andalusia). This foundation is headquartered in the ETSII and develops all kinds of activities in collaboration with the research groups of our school.
The main objective of FIDETIA is to contribute actively to sustainable development of the Society through Training, Research and Technology Transfer, strengthening the collaboration between University and Business in the field of Information Technology and Communications (ICT). All this is very important for the development of the Competitive of companies and progress of society. FIDETIA was created in 2000. In recent years it has become a consolidated project of reference in Spain. About 3500 scholarship students, 700 agreements of collaboration, 500 R & D + i and about 85 conferences organized with a total success.


The University of Seville (Universidad de Sevilla) is a university in Seville, Spain. Founded under the name of “Colegio Santa María de Jesús” in 1505, it has a present student body of over 65,000, and is one of the top-ranked universities in the country. Seville is the 2000-year-old artistic, cultural, and financial capital of Andalusia in southern Spain; it is situated on the plain of the Guadalquivir River. The University of Seville is steeped in history and is one of the most important cultural centers in Spain, dating to the 15th century when the Catholic Monarchs recovered the area from the Moors, a history reflected in its architecture. It was originally the “Colegio de Santa Mari¬a de Jesus” which had been created by Archdeacon Maese Rodrigo Fernandez de Santaella and was confirmed as a practicing university in 1505 by the papal bull of Pope Julius II. Today, the University of Seville is known for research in technology and science.

In the middle of the thirteenth century the Dominicans, in order to prepare missionaries for work among the Moors and Jews, organized schools for the teaching of Arabic, Hebrew, and Greek. To cooperate in this work and to enhance the prestige of Seville, Alfonso the Wise in 1254 established in the city "general schools" (“escuelas generales”) of Arabic and Latin. Alexander IV, by the Papal Bull of 21 June 1260, recognized this foundation as a generale litterarum studium and granted its members certain dispensations in the matter of residence. Later, the cathedral chapter established ecclesiastical studies in the College of San Miguel. Rodrigo de Santaello, archdeacon of the cathedral and commonly known as Maese Rodrigo, began the construction of a building for a university in 1472; in 1502 the Catholic Monarchs published the royal decree creating the university, and in 1505 Julius II granted the Bull of authorization; in 1509 the college of Maese Rodrigo was finally installed in its own building, under the name of Santa María de Jesús, but its courses were not opened until 1516. The Catholic Monarchs and the pope granted the power to confer degrees in logic, philosophy, theology, and canon and civil law. The “colegio mayor” de Maese Rodrigo and the university proper, although housed in the same building, never lost their separate identities, as is shown by the fact that, in the eighteenth century, the university was moved to the College of San Hermanegildo, while that of Maese Rodrigo remained independent, although languishing.

Current enrollment at the University of Seville is approximately 74,000, including an international student population of about 1,500 annually. You will take courses through “Cursos Concertados con Universidades Extranjeras”, which has been an established program since 1972. These courses, offered in a wide variety of disciplines, are designed and taught by university professors. You will benefit from the fact that all courses are taught in Spanish. By sharing the university building with Spaniards, you have the opportunity to immerse yourself in Spanish university life and student culture. University services available to CEA students include a university ID, library, and a student café.

The University now offers a broad selection of courses within more of 10 faculties: Art and Design; Arts; Business and Economic; Education; Engineering; Information Technology; Law; Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences; Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences; and Science; among others.
