A Campus of Excellence

In 2011, the UCLM was recognized by the Spanish government as a “Campus of International Excellence” for its project “Campus Científico  y Tecnológico de la Energía y el Medio Ambiente (CYTEMA)” and its resulting efforts  in the teaching, research and knowledge transfer in the area of Energy and Environmental Science.


The University of Castilla-La Mancha consists of 40 teaching facilities, 36 departments and 35 research centers divided amongst its four main campuses in Albacete, Ciudad Real, Cuenca and Toledo along with its satellite campuses in Almadén and Talavera de la Reina. It is in these campuses where doctoral candidates are able to begin the investigative process which will lead them toward the development and completion of their dissertations.
