Last May 26, the Engineering Fair of the University of Salamanca was held at the new I+D+i building of the University. The event, organized by the Scientific Culture and Innovation Unit, was focused on the dissemination of (i) the educational offer in engineering at that University, specifically on the university campuses of Ávila, Béjar and Zamora, and (ii) most relevant results and projects developed in that University, specifically by the TIDOP Research Group in Ávila.
The engineering offer at the campus of Ávila is currently:
- B.S. degree in Civil Engineering
- B.S. degree in Mining and Energy Engineering
- B.S. degree in Civil Engineering and Mining and Energy Engineering
- B.S. degree in Survey Engineering
- B.S. degree in Geocomputing and Geomatics (new)
- M.S. degree in Geothecnologies applied to Arquitecture and Engineering (On-Line)
- PhD. program in Geotechnologies Applied to Construction, Energy and Industry.
The new B.S. degree in Geocomputing and Geomatics is unique in Castile and Leon and the second at national level. It will start next academic year (2018-2019).

Regarding the most relevant results and projects showed during the event, highlighted those developed within the framework of the Cátedra Iberdrola VIII Centenario. This project, managed by the distinguished researcher Susana Lagüela López, aims to develop different alternatives for a decarbonized and electrified energy horizon. First advances consisting in the calculation of solar potential of the roofs of residential buildings were showed during the Engineering Fair. In addition, the operation of photovoltaic cells and panels were shown thanks to an available solar trainer.
