Abstract
The Bologna process has encouraged that many European universities are attempting to foster their international dimension by increasing course offerings taught in English. Several Spanish universities are promoting the use of English among their students and faculties but there are several intrinsic problems that lack global solutions. Currently, the Technical University of Madrid (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, UPM) does not yet have a specific program to promote teaching in English, although an Educational Model exists that highlights the need to foster UPM internationalization and suggests some measurements like the International Semester. The innovative education project TechEnglish funded by the UPM is working to improve the internationalization of undergraduate and graduate programs at this university by increasing the number and quality of courses offered in English. To do that a university wide framework has been elaborated.
