The School of Naval and Industrial Engineers (also Escuela de Peritos Navales de Ferrol and Escuela Universitaria de Ingeniería Técnica Naval de Ferrol) was created in 1963 by a Ministerial Order from Madrid, in accordance with a direct initiative of General Francisco Franco. It was Franco's intention to be present for the official inauguration of the premises in 1966, but in the end this was not possible.

The School kept always its dependency to the Ministry of Education and Science in Madrid, but when in 1990 the University of A Corunna came to exist as a fully independent body fully detached from the University of Santiago de Compostela, it was decided from A Corunna that a full integration with the newly created institution was going to be a good idea. So, as a consequence of that decision, and from that date onwards the School has been part of the University of A Corunna. It is now the Escuela Universitaria Politécnica Ferrol.

Historical background[edit]
