Professional visit of first-year students to the School of Telecommunication Engineering and the School of Industrial Engineering

On Thursday, June the 22nd, 2023, the first-year students (ASP1) of the Degree in Mechanical Engineering taught at the Defense University Center at the Spanish Naval Academy (CUD-ENM) visited the Schools of Telecommunications Engineering and Industrial Engineering of the University of Vigo, located on the campus of Lagoas-Marcosende, accompanied by the professor of the CUD-ENM Mr. Miguel Angel Alvarez Feijoo.

During the visit to the School of Telecommunications Engineering, the reception was in charge of Ms. Laura Docío Fernández, Deputy Director of Dissemination and Recruitment of the school, who presented the center and the degree programs offered there.

The group of visitors was then taken to some of the School’s most emblematic laboratories: the semi-anechoic acoustic chamber, where students were able to learn about the main uses and characteristics of the room; the laboratory dedicated to photonic integration for optical and quantum communications; or the laboratory working on topics related to 5G technology, Industry 4.0 and autonomous vehicles.

They also visited the SpaceLab facilities, a laboratory where a group of students and professors from the School of Telecommunications Engineering are dedicated to designing and manufacturing small satellites.

In the second part of the visit, to the School of Industrial Engineering, the reception was given by the Deputy Director of Institutional Projection and Alumni, Dr. Mohamed Boutinguiza Larosi. After a presentation of the center and the degrees offered, including Master’s degrees, because of the interest they may have in the future for CUD-ENM students, the students went to two emblematic laboratories of the School: the Automation Laboratory and the Physics Laboratory.

The visit to the Industrial Handling and Logistics Laboratory (Ricardo Marín Laboratory) of the EEI, focused on seeing the different industrial robots available and the flexible overhead warehouse (multi-reference product storage system using trolleys).

The visitors then moved to the adjacent building, where the Machining Processes Laboratory is located, where the students received a brief explanation of the different equipment used in the various machining processes.
