School of Engineering (ETSEUV)

The new facilities of the ETSE were opened during the academic year 2011-2012 and include all the engineering studies of the University of Valencia and the Doctoral Studies, too. Among the common usage services for doctoral students we should highlight the assembly hall, several meeting rooms and 2 computer rooms of open access. All the spaces mentioned are equipped with support infrastructure that includes: projection screen, video projector, slide projector and audio system. In addition, throughout the centre is available network connection, both wired and wireless (Eduroam network). Academic partnerships with leading IT companies have been signed, for providing our students all the tools necessary. Thus, the university have signed agreements with the following companies: Microsoft (operating systems and development tools), Matlab, Mathcad, Polymath, AUTOCAD and ASPEN.

Burjassot Campus

The ETSE is located in the Burjassot Campus, 6 Km from the Valencia centre town. This Campus has all the infrastructure and the back-up equipment that complements the specific resources of the Department of Chemical Engineering and of the ETSE for the correct development of the educational activities of the Doctoral Programme: a library with telematic access to its catalogue and study rooms, and a central service for supporting experimental research. Moreover, the Burjassot Campus has common usage services for any member of the University Community: sport and cultural activities, support and information for visitors, catering services, printing and copying services, etc.

The Library of the Burjassot Campus has several reading rooms in the Library building, and an additional room in the building that currently houses the ETSE, open to students and users. It also has restricted access rooms for teaching staff, researchers and doctoral students. In total, the Library has 1030 reading points. Moreover, the Library has an assembly hall (133 seats) which is mainly used as conference room and fitted it with public address systems, video and slides projectors and blackboard. The Library has printed collections of scientific journals of Chemical Engineering, but the best tool is the online access to scientific databases, (the most important are Web of Knowledge and Scifinder Scholar). Moreover, the library has a large catalogue of e-journals, and a service for requesting articles trough the Rebiun network.

The Central Service for Experimental Research of the Burjassot Campus has scientific equipment for the characterisation and analysis of raw materials, structure determination of substances of organic and inorganic substances and compounds, analysis of agrifood products, transgenic material, etc. Among the services provided, the most relevant for this Doctoral Programme are: Atomic Spectroscopy, Bioinformatics, Cell cultures, Genomics, Mass spectroscopy, Electronic Microscopy, Nuclear Magnetic Resonances, X-ray, and Blown Glass Workshop.

The Computer Service of the University of Valencia is located in the Burjassot Campus and apart from providing support and general services at level user (websites, virtual disks, email, etc.), it offers to the members of the university community the possibility of running application of scientific or teaching nature in machines specifically designed for it. For this purpose it has the infrastructure needed for hosting large servers and the human resources specialised in its management. Currently, the computer service manages two large systems, an Altix UV1000 supercomputer called LluisVives and a cluster of PC’s called Multivac. With these two systems it is intended to cover all the calculations performed currently at the University.
