Grasp the future: Hands on with HP!

General description

One of the main purposes of engineering, if not the most important one, is to improve people’s lives. We engineers constantly try to construct better bridges, create new machines that waste less energy or invent computer programs that make communication easier. In order to follow this idea of making this world a better one, next autumn we are going to provide each and everyone of you the opportunity to learn about how engineers can influence the biomedics field while visiting the extraordinary city of Barcelona.

And why Barcelona? Well, apart from Futbol Club Barcelona, we have many other things to offer. We’ll show you not only the typical sites but also the hidden places the locals know which, guess what, happen to be us! You can always come to Barcelona but you won’t have the opportunity to discover it to its fullest. We encourage you to apply and come visit us!
