School of Industrial Engineering of Technical University of Madrid

Achievement of Commitment

Social responsibility is integrated with the four areas of the university: Teaching, Research, Management and University Extension.
The project is based in the participation of stakeholders and the transparency. Thus, different channels were enabled to allow stakeholders to participate in the project by selecting the improvement areas to work on and the consequent actions to be done. The accountability is done by a social responsibility report that serves as a communication tool, as it explains the different initiatives and informs stakeholders about the progress that was made in fulfilling the objectives.

How this will be achieved

The enforcement of a social responsibility strategy is motivated by the need to have ethical and professionally trained engineers aware of the implications of their activities and their responsibilities. Within the engineering field, is focused particularly on integrating social and environmental criteria as well as ethical and responsible management to the organizations in which engineers work.

ETSII-UPM understands the Social Responsibility in the university as a voluntary integration of social and environmental concerns in its operations as well as in the relationships with its partners.
