Synergistic Activities

 

Vice Dean of the School of Telecommunication Engineering, since April 2009. My actuation is focused in developing the new formative programs adapted to the EEES: the Grado (Bachelor) in Telecommunication Engineering Technologies, which has been implemented in 2010, and currently the Master in Telecommunication Engineering.

Secretary of Dept. Teoría do Sinal e Comunicacións, Universidade de Vigo, since July 2004. Supporting the Head of the Department I am taking several actions to improve the educational, research and development activities and technology transfer to the industry. As a result, the external funding for R+D activities has been increased from 396,000€ in 2003, 584,000 euro in 2004, and 1,452,000 euroin 2005, which represents a 23% of the R+D external funding of the whole University.

We are now at the top of ranking among the 33 Departments of the university.

The Department is also at the top of the “scientific production”, measured as number of peer-reviewed publications, number of patents, and books. During this time, two new three year degrees have been implemented and also the Doctoral Program “Teoría de la Señal y comunicaciones” has received a quality award from the Spanish Ministry of Science and Education.

Only three doctorate programs at the University of Vigo have this quality award.

I am also one of the lecturers in the Doctoral Program “Teoría de la Señal y Comunicaciones” that has received a quality award from the Spanish Ministry of Science and Education . In this doctorate program we also collaborate with three other Spanish Universities.

R+D for Telefónica Móviles. I have participated in R+D projects supported by Telefónica Móviles, which is the main mobile operator company in Spain and many other counties in South America. In 2000 we got a R+D project about UMTS in a call from this company to all the Technical Universities in Spain. Five projects were funded.

The collaboration continues with a second project related to the integration of Zigbee and UMTS. Project UMTS Telefónica Móviles.

Lecturer of the subject “Teledetección” (Remote Sensing), at five year of Electrical Engineering degree. Since 2000, I have taught this topic every year, developing new curricular materials and using a student-closing academic method that results in an increment in students from 12 in 2000 to 113 in 2006.

Course on radiofrequency stations measurement and certification, in Montevideo (Uruguay). I was the only lecturer of this two week course at the Universidad de la República, whose students were engineers from Uruguay Ministry of Telecommunications, Montevideo municipality, and other official departments.

The objective was to explain measurement procedures to assure health limits around radio stations, and to provide knowledge to define normative on the topic.

Such an activity represents a service to the engineering community in foreign countries.
