The new Aula will participate also in the activities of the Unesco Chair of Numerical Methods in Engineering. Specifically, the Aula EEBE-CIMNE will be used by researchers and students in the field of engineering (Mechanical, Electrical, Electronic and Automation, Biomedical, Chemical Engineering, Materials and Energy Engineering) for the development of research, education, development programs and implementation of models.
In addition to the formal signature ceremony for the cooperation agreement, Prof. Oñate visited the campus guided by the director of the EEBE, Prof. Luis Llanes, the coordinator of the Aula EEBE-CIMNE, Prof. Daniel Di Capua, and responsible for the Department of Strength of materials and Structural Engineering at the EEBE, Prof. José Ramón González Drigo.
