Degree in Computer Engineering



UNEATLANTICO produces professionals who are capable of resolving problems from an analytical and strategic perspective.


Today’s global society is exposed to a steady stream of new services and products, many of which are driven by ever-improving technological innovation. It is now virtually impossible for business entities to be divorced from this reality and, consequently, any effective business management strategy must necessarily involve an operational and strategic approach to computing technology.

Computer Engineering occupies a key position in the value chain of a company. Furthermore, it plays an important role in a company’s strategic corporate vision and is also an essential element in the process of adapting to changing scenarios.

The Degree in Computer Engineering seeks not only to acquaint students with the most up-to-date technological support currently available, but also to enable them to apply and integrate this technology within a strategic corporate approach. UNEATLANTICO produces professionals who are capable of resolving problems from an analytical and strategic perspective, and who have a sound knowledge of the fundamental principles that drive these fast-moving technologies.

English, the key to your present and your future


English, the key to your present and your future

In today's world, one of the essential tools for international communication and the key that opens opportunities to finding a job, both in Spain and abroad, is knowing English.

In our country, 80% of the job offers already require a high proficiency of this language, and in many cases, this requirement is more important than personal and professional qualifications.

If is for this reason that the European University of the Atlantic places special emphasis on undergraduate students attaining proficiency in the language. From the first year on, students are encouraged to register for extra-curricular classes in preparation for successfully completing study of their regular subjects taught in English throughout their degree.

This way, regardless of their initial proficiency level, the language program based on tutorial support, specialized materials, and small classes, allows students to later follow their dual language (English-Spanish) courses in sequence so that they finish their degree having acquired a bilingual skill set that is applicable in their profession.

In addition, the University also offers computer labs, a library, as well as radio and television production and post-production studios.

Faculty motivate students to become involved in campus life and guide them towards creating projects and developing ideas that enhance their professional development from the the very first year of their studies. The learning model is not limited to covering a syllabus, but intends to guarantee a solid theoretical-practical education in which students feel fully engaged in their professional area.

Furthermore, the University has signed numerous internship agreements with a wide range of business entities that complement formal university education and facilitate the development of the cross-curricular skills needed to break into the job market.

A true indication of the importance that the University places on innovation and knowledge transfer is the establishment of the Centre for Research and Industrial Technology of Cantabria (CITICAN).
