TecnunThe School of Engineering of the University of Navarra, the School of Engineering of the University of Navarra, starts the academic year this Monday 31 with 235 new undergraduate students, 38% of them women and 23% international students from Ecuador, Panama, Costa Rica, Mexico, Bolivia, United States, United Kingdom, Philippines, Venezuela, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Peru, Honduras or El Salvador.

The students of higher courses will begin on Tuesday in person and from September 21 the more than 200 master's degree students will do so. This was recalled this morning by the director of Tecnun, Raúl Antón, in an informative session with which he welcomed all the professionals of the School, recently incorporated in a face-to-face manner. "It is a complicated year, but we must be clear that the University has a plan for each of the possible scenarios," said Antón. 

In this way, the director referred to 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, as well as a greater number of scholarships. "Some students will take time to come due to logistical problems, but they will come. And we professors and professionals have to show responsibility and exemplarity with the students to repay the trust they have placed in us," continued Antón. 

The director has detailed the measures that the School has taken to face the COVID-19 and to be able to bet on a face-to-face modality, as he has pointed out. Antón also spoke of the creation of new spaces for teaching, as well as of the prevention measures and the PCRs that will be carried out from Monday until the 4th for 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. "We have a COVID Area for virtual and face-to-face care, which will help us to act quickly, always in collaboration with the health authorities," he concluded. 

He also 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 safety measures are complied with.
