The URJC in AULA 2022

This morning the most important educational fair in Spain was inaugurated. It is held in person at IFEMA from March 2 to 6, where the Rey Juan Carlos University will present the latest news from its academic offer, as well as the activities organized by its teachers and students. 

The month of March kicks off with the celebration of AULA, the most important educational fair in Spain. The 30th edition of this event takes place at IFEMA Madrid until March 6.

Although the fair opened its doors yesterday, the inauguration took place today with the visit of the Minister of Education and Vocational Training, Pilar Alegría, as well as the Secretary of State for Education, Alejandro Tiana. Javier Ramos López, the rector of the Rey Juan Carlos University, the vice-rector for Students, Almudena López López and the professor of Materials Science and Metallurgical Engineering, Joaquín Rams, also attended the opening. 

During this week, prospective students have the opportunity to make first-hand contact with all public universities in Madrid, as well as 14 private institutions and those from other autonomous communities. Due to the restrictions imposed by the pandemic, the event has a controlled capacity. 

News in the academic offer

As in previous years, the Rey Juan Carlos University arrives at the fair with an enriched academic offer. It maintains its position as the university in Madrid that offers the most double degrees - 78, covering all the faculties of the URJC - and being a of the 15 most accessible universities in Spain according to the Universia Foundation. The latter is also reflected in being the only higher education institution that offers the degree in "Spanish Sign Language and the Deaf Community" and the University Master's Degree in Inclusive Education and Universal Design for Learning.

For the following academic year, two new degrees are also introduced: "Degree in data engineering", which will be taught at the Fuenlabrada campus, and in "Artificial intelligence", which will take place at the Móstoles campus. 

In order to offer the best possible orientation to future university students, the URJC has organized a stand with a team of students, teachers and Administration and Services Staff. By getting to know the University first-hand, they will be able to provide advice and answer any questions that attendees may have: from the registration formalization process, to explaining the training itinerary for the different degrees of interest. 

Learning outside the classroom

On the other hand, and understanding that university life goes beyond studies, the members of different faculties and schools of the URJC, as well as its university associations, have prepared a series of activities and workshops. In this way, visitors to the fair can learn more about the projects developed by the University's teachers and students. 

The students of the Higher Technical School of Computer Engineering (ETSII) have organized demonstrations and micro-workshops on different topics, such as "Laser Tag", "Guess the password", "Learn by playing", "Non-Social Networks", related to some of the degrees and qualifications belonging to ETSII. For its part, the General Association of Students and Representatives (ANGER) will carry a 3D printer and COVID respirators. 

The Higher Technical School of Telecommunications Engineering (ETSIT) will have the representation of the COSMOS university association. At their stand, open on Thursday from 16:20 p.m. to XNUMX:XNUMX p.m., they will show interested visitors how to build a satellite. 

From the Faculty of Legal and Social Sciences (FCJS) the students of the degree in Sign Language and the Deaf Community will give a workshop to approach the learning of this language and learn how to communicate with deaf people; also talk about career opportunities in this area. There will also be a workshop on curriculum vitae photography. Finally, the URJC Debate Club will attend, explaining how it works and the activities it carries out. 

A unique experience

For any student who wants to start their university studies next year, AULA is a great opportunity to get to know both the academic offer of the different public and private institutions, and to understand what university life entails. In the words of Manuel Sánchez Acera, Head of the University Information and Orientation Service: “It is a unique experience, since, by having a team of teachers and students who know first-hand the orientation that future students may need, we offer them a personalized advice."
