TecnunThe School of Engineering of the University of Navarra in San Sebastian and Mitsubishi Electric Europe BV, Spain branch , have today signed a collaboration agreement in Madrid. Both Tecnun and Mitsubishi ELECTRIC wish to establish "a collaboration in the field of research and teaching in favour of the development and training of the students of the School of Engineers, aimed at a better preparation for their professional practice".
The signing took place at the new postgraduate headquarters of the University of Navarra in Madrid, where both parties stated that they are "firmly convinced that the University-business relationship must be increasingly intense and profound in the future and that this relationship will result in a more competitive company and a University that is more in tune with the needs of the business world". Furthermore, it has been agreed to create a Mitsubishi ELECTRIC Classroom in the Thermal and Fluids Engineering laboratories at Tecnun.
To this end, Mitsubishi will provide the Engineering School with equipment for the training of future engineers, in return for which Mitsubishi will have an advantageous position in recruiting students and graduates from Tecnun.
Likewise, Tecnun is committed to establish a laboratory dedicated to Air Conditioning Technology with the corporate image of Mitsubishi ELECTRIC as a sponsor. In addition, Mitsubishi ELECTRIC will have special visibility in the foyer of the Main Building of Tecnun, together with other institutions that have institutional collaboration agreements with Tecnun.
The signing of this collaboration agreement at the new headquarters of the University of Navarra reflects the fact that Tecnun will start its activity in the capital in September, teaching the Master in Industrial Engineering.
The signing of the agreement was attended by the director of Tecnun, Raúl Antón, and the School's Director of External Relations, Javier Ganuza. Mitsubishi ELECTRIC was represented by Pedro Ruiz, General Manager of the Air Conditioning Division, and the company's Marketing Manager, Ramón Cano .
