UP4 has also organised several competitions and technological challenges for students at member universities. One example, supported by Caja de Ingenieros, was a competition aimed at multidisciplinary teams. The contest challenged students to produce a prototype car with two key features: maximum energy efficiency and an autonomous vehicle control system. Prizes of €3000, €2000 and €1000 were given for the best three proposals.
The UPC, the UPM, the UPV and the UPCT have the stamp of Campus of International Excellence
