The start of the Polytechnic Superior School takes place on October 16, 2003 when the Commission of Education of the Community of Madrid authorizes the creation of two new schools in the University of Alcala. These are the Technical Superior School of Architecture and Geodesy, and the Technical Superior School of Computer Engineering. From this date, the first one takes charge of the organization of the studies conductive to the obtention of the degrees of Architect and Engineer in Geodesy and Cartography, and moved his placement to the building “Carmen Calzado” in the city centre. On the other hand, the Technical Superior School of Computer Engineering took charge of the degrees of Computer Science Engineer, Technical Engineer in Computer Systems and Technical Engineer in Computer Management, and the new School is placed in the same Polytechnic building sharing head office with Polytechnic Superior School (new name of the ancient Polytechnic School) and that is in charge of organizing the rest of degrees previously given and not mentioned above.
In the year 2009-10, the Technical Superior School of Computer Engineering started new degrees according to the new European rules (Bologna system), replacing progressively the old careers year by year. The new degrees are named Graduate in Computer Sciences, Graduate in Information Systems and Graduate in Computer Engineering.
