TecnunThe School of Engineering of the University of Navarra, the School of Engineering of the University of Navarra, has started the academic year today with 235 new undergraduate students, 38% of them women and 23% international students from Ecuador, Panama, Costa Rica, Mexico, Bolivia, the United States, the United Kingdom, the Philippines, Venezuela, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Peru, Honduras and El Salvador, among others. The students of the higher courses will begin tomorrow in person, and from September 21 onwards, the approximately 200 students of the master's program will begin their studies. 

The first-year engineering students attended the welcome session organized into four different groups. The director of Tecnun, Raúl Antón, and the deputy director of Students, Jorge Juan Gil, explained to the new arrivals the PlanPrepara2, which was launched a few months ago, with the aim of being able to start the course in person thanks to the measures taken, focused on teaching, health and prevention to create a safe campus. 

Likewise, the coordinator of studies, Coro Aycart, emphasized the protocols that they will have to follow throughout the course. Aycart spoke of the creation of new spaces for teaching, as well as the prevention measures and the PCRs that will be carried out from today until the 4th for the professionals and students of the university center.   

He also explained that random PCRs will be carried out throughout the course, stratified by student/employee status and academic center. "He has also talked about the existence of a COVID Area for virtual and face-to-face care, which will help Tecnun to act quickly, always in collaboration with the health authorities.  

On the other hand, Aycart has once again recalled the basic rules of prevention: masks, hand hygiene, interpersonal safety distance, capacity control, cleaning protocol, air renewal of the premises, as well as the presence on campus of "Covid Supervisors", students who during the first days of the course will ensure that the various measures are complied with.
