BILINGUALISM IN ENGINEERING CURRICULA AT CEIA3 UNIVERSITIES

The Agrifood Campus of International Excellence (CEIA3) is a joint initiative between the universities of Almeria (UAL), Cadiz (UCA), Huelva (UHU), Jaen (UJA) and Cordoba (UCO). Headed by the UCO, the objectives of the CEIA3 are ambitious and require a firm social commitment given that the agrifood sector of Andalusia provides a promising future for our students and many other young people.

The changes introduced by the massive use of information technology are a revolution of enormous depth that affects the way of transmitting knowledge. They justify the profound changes occurred in all educational stages, including higher education. The very paradigm of learning throughout life involves rethinking the role of education and specifically the role of universities in the knowledge society. In this sense / Within this context, the role of the knowledge of a second language and the promotion of multilingualism is essential.

Within the framework of a teaching innovation project of ceiA3, bilingualism in engineering, this paper analyzes the current situation of the whole range of subjects taught in a language different from Spanish in all CEIA3 universities for both undergraduate and master's degrees.
