UNIVERSITY ORIENTATION, ADMISSIONS AND ACTIVITIES WITH EDUCATIONAL ESTABLISHMENTS
The Guidance, Admissions and University Information Service aims to help students and prospective students in all matters relating to their academic training and admission to UDIT
On the one hand, they inform prospective students about the academic offer and guide them in their choices. The department also assists them in completing the necessary formalities, including admission tests, to become UDIT students.
Similarly, this Department provides support for UDIT students, guiding them in their decision-making process and the selection of academic itineraries adapted to their requirements.

UDIT has had a state-of-the-art digital manufacturing and research laboratory since October 2016. This project was born out of the need to transform the creativity of our students into real projects.
Thanks to these facilities, UDIT students will be able to prototype their designs, investigate the use of materials and produce real objects.
The UDIT Fab Lab is equipped with digital fabrication equipment and machinery such as 3D and sintering printers, thermoforming machine, laser cutter, an oscilloscope, digital embroidery/knitting machine, electronic welding kits, a CNC digital machining centre, design computers and the revolutionary Japanese virtual design technology Shima Seiki.
In July 2017, UDIT’s Fab Lab was internationally accredited and included in the Fab Foundation’s Fab Labs network, an organisation that was born at M.I.T (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and currently has more than 1,000 digital fabrication labs around the world.
A revolutionary technological space created thanks to the collaboration of RS Components Iberia, a leading company in the distribution of electronic components in Spain. An educational cooperation agreement between the two institutions to support innovation and university experimentation with the donation of components, work kits and the loan of a robotics arm for student training.
The UDIT Fab Lab is freely accessible to students upon reservation, and is also used for practical classes and specialised workshops.
UDIT is the only university centre in Spain that has a materioteca (material library).
It is an exhibition space of 150 avant-garde materials selected by an international jury of experts – with a rotation throughout the year – of innovative references oriented to Design.
UDIT’s material library is classified into several categories: polymers, ceramics, glass, metals, cements, natural and derived materials. In addition, students can access the online archive with more than 7,500 materials and transformation processes.
A catalogue that will allow you to incorporate the latest cutting-edge materials into your academic and professional projects.
All this has been made possible thanks to the collaboration between UDIT and Material ConneXion, the largest international centre for advice, research and consultation on materials.
Material ConneXion participates as an expert consultant on product development and the application of new materials in R&D&I projects with national and international companies with which UDIT is already collaborating, as well as new collaborations that will be carried out.
The objective is to provide differentiated value to students through the transfer of knowledge in the field of materials, enabling the creation of better products, with greater added value.
UDIT provides its students with a multimedia laboratory equipped with professional audiovisual production equipment: Canon, Nikon and JVC digital video and photography cameras, spotlights and flashes, microphones and sound recorders, poles, chroma screens, tripods, video software, etc.
A space at the forefront of technology to give life to the ideas of students so that they can create and produce audiovisual content and experiment in the different areas of Design.
UDIT provides students and teachers with bibliographic funds for consultation in the reading room and for loan. The collection includes books, magazines, cd-roms.

This figure is in place to make any claim related to the rights and freedoms of students, teachers, administrative and service staff.
The value of this independent figure is in their ability to contribute to the improvement of relationships and develop a positive climate in the day-to-day life of our UDIT environment.
The University Ombudsman promotes cooperation and helps students’ personal development by making recommendations or suggestions, which will never be binding for the resolution of the issues raised or for the improvement of quality.
It acts as a mediator to always help in the resolution of conflicts, provided that this is accepted by the parties involved, and guides you on the actions to be taken before the different administrative bodies.
The actions of the University Ombudsman are not subject to the imperative mandate of any university body and are governed by the principles of independence and autonomy, impartiality, weighting and respect for confidentiality, as set out in the Law.
In accordance with ORGANIC LAW 6/2001, OF 21 DECEMBER, ON UNIVERSITIES, the figure of the UNIVERSITY OMBUDSMAN is created to ensure respect for the rights and freedoms of teachers, students and administration and services staff in the actions of the different university bodies and services. Universities will establish the figure of the University Ombudsman in their organisational structure. Its actions, always aimed at improving university quality in all areas, shall not be subject to the imperative mandate of any university body and shall be governed by the principles of independence and autonomy.
In this sense, the University School of Design, Innovation and Technology, UDIT, creates the figure of the University Ombudsman, which will be regulated under the following articles:
The University Ombudsman is the institutional body in charge of ensuring that UDIT regulations are respected and defending the rights of the University Community, representing the teaching staff, students, administration and services personnel.
