In October 1997, two years after the UOC was founded as the world's first online university, the Faculty of Computer Science, Multimedia and Telecommunications started teaching, launching two programmes in the field of computer science: one in systems informatics and the other in business informatics. Inspired by its 25th anniversary, here's a recap of some of the Faculty's main milestones.

"In our Faculty, we see a fundamental relationship between people and technology. Accordingly, we are a very diverse team and collaborate closely with the rest of the UOC's faculties."
The 1997/1998 course began with the degrees of Systems Computer Technical Engineering and Management Computer Technical Engineering. “We started with about 200 students for each of the two programmes,” Ramon Segret explains.
