History

The Technical College of Computer Science (TCCS) of the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM), located in Ciudad Real, was created as the result of Royal Decree 1025/1989 (Official State Gazette nº 190 of 10th August). On the following 6th of August, authorisation to begin teaching during the academic year 1989/1990 appeared in the Official Gazette, and the first study plan leading to the attainment of an HND in Computer Science was published on the 14th of October

In order to adapt the university studies to the reform, new study plans were created at the beginning of 1992 which, after being published in the Official Gazette on the 20th of October, supposed a change being made to the former Degree with the teaching of two new HND courses form the academic year 1992/1993 onwards: Technical Engineering in Computer Systems and Management Computing

In 1992, the Government Committee and the Regional University Social Council approved a proposal for new degrees in the future, including that of Bachelor’s degrees in Computer Engineering on the Ciudad Real campus.

On the 28th of May 1998, and in accordance with to decree 52/1998 of the Castilla-La Mancha Autonomous Government, which was published in the Official Diary of Castilla-La Mancha, the former Technical School of Computer Science (TSCS) became the University College of Computer Science (UCCS). This decree also authorised the teaching of Bachelor’s degrees from the academic year 1998/1999, signifying that from that academic year onwards, the following official studies were taught:

  • Computer Engineering (first cycle of three years and second cycle of 2 years)
  • Technical Engineering in Systems Computing (first cycle of three years)
  • Technical Engineering in Management Computing (first cycle of 3 years)

The first Doctorate programme in Computer Engineering at the UCLM began to be taught in the 1999/2000 academic year, and was renamed ‘Architecture and Management of Computing and Network Systems Knowledge’. This programme obtained its first Quality Mention, and later became an official Master’s degree, denominated as ‘Advanced Computing Technologies’, which, with its research profile, supposed having previously taken part in the tutored period necessary to obtain the title of Doctor in Computer Engineering.

In the academic year 2010/2011, and with the need to adapt to the European Higher Education Area, the College began to offer ‘Computer Engineering Degrees’, and contemplated four intensifications corresponding to the four blocks of technology specified in the collections of the corresponding academic competency files published in the Official Gazette as regards what should be taught for the profession of Computer Engineer.

This offer is to be completed with the Master of Science Program in Computer Engineering, which started in the year 2011/2012 and prepares for the Software Engineering’s profession.
