The following URV departments are based in the ETSE:
The directors of these departments, at the beginning of the year, are Dr. Jesus Brezmes Llecha and Dr. Jordi Castellà Roca, respectively.
Some subjects at the ETSE are taught by other departments, such as Mechanical Engineering (particularly in the speciality of Electricity) and Chemical Engineering. These departments belong to the ETSEQ and, therefore, are also on the same campus.
The departments also have their own governing assemblies, the Departmental Council (articles 58 and 59 URV Statutes) and officers, director and secretary (articles 72 and 73 respectively).
