LATEST NEWS AND EVENTS FROM THE SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING
Tecnun start online classes
Students can access the new timetables on the website
Since Friday 13th, following the Basque Government's suspension of the activity of all educational centres in the Basque Country, the School has suspended face-to-face teaching to temporarily switch to online methodology.
In a communiqué addressed to the 1,200 students on campus, the Student Affairs Department has informed that online classes will start on Tuesday 17th, and that the new class timetables for all courses are available on the website, which should be reviewed on an ongoing basis.
The Deputy Director of Students, Jorge Juan Gil, has asked students to "follow the instructions given by the teachers in their respective subjects, consult the material posted on ADI, watch the classes recorded by the teachers, connect to a virtual classroom via Google Meet or Zoom and resolve their doubts via chat or by writing in forums".
The deputy director of students also appealed to the individual responsibility of carrying out this personal work at a distance, without the physical proximity of colleagues, teachers or the advisor, and reminded them that teachers are "available via email whenever they need them".
The University of Navarra closes its facilities from Tuesday 17th, following the Spanish Government's declaration of a state of alarm for the whole country due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, the San Sebastian campus will maintain minimum services in some areas.
Classes are expected to resume on 30 March, but teachers are preparing material for online teaching until Easter, in anticipation of a prolonged situation.
Extracurricular activities suspended
As in the rest of the universities, all extra-curricular, cultural, sporting and other group events will be suspended .
The start of classes after Easter is scheduled for 16 April, although the school will confirm this at a later date as the situation progresses.
