Chapter
Este trabajo presenta el diseño de una experiencia docente en el ámbito de la sostenibilidad que se está llevando a cabo en el grado de Ingeniería en Electrónica Industrial y Automática, en la Escuela de Ingeniería de Vitoria-Gasteiz, UPV/EHU (EIVG). Se plantea un problema que experimenta directamente el alumnado, consistente en optimizar el grado...
Chapter
This work describes the design of a PBL experience in the field of sustainability that has been carried out in the subject of Industrial Informatics. Industrial Informatics is a mandatory course taught in the third year of the B.Sc. degree in industrial electronics and automation engineering at the Faculty of Engineering of Vitoria-Gasteiz (UPV/EHU...
Chapter
One of the implementations of novel initiatives in the field of education that requires more efforts is the entire implementation of a new Bachelor’s degree based on dual training. These efforts involve on one hand the design of an extremely experimental degree and on the other hand, the engagement of local companies that must collaborate in a rigo...

The presence of artificial intelligence in our lives is increasing and being applied to fields such as medicine, engineering, telecommunications, remote sensing and 3D visualization. Nevertheless, it has never been used for the stratigraphic study of historical buildings. Thus far, archaeologists and architects, the experts in archaeology of archit...

In this article authors propose a temperature based Maximum Power Point Tracking algorithm (MPPT). Authors show that there is an optimal current vs maximum power curve that depends on photovoltaic (PV) module temperature. Therefore, the maximum power point (MPP) can be achieved in very few commutation steps if the control forces the PV module to wo...
Chapter
This paper describes an educational experiment carried out by an Educational Innovation Project (EIP), developed in the field of Industrial Informatics during the biennium 2011/2013 at the Faculty of Engineering of Vitoria-Gasteiz (University of the Basque Country, UPV/EHU, Spain). In this paper the general situation regarding the European Higher E...
Chapter
Since 2017–2018 academic year, the Bachelor’s Degree in Auto-motive Engineering has been implemented at the Faculty of Engineering of Vitoria-Gasteiz (Basque Country University, UPV/EHU) in dual format, based on the complementarity of the University and company learning environments. With this type of education the aim is to achieve greater motivat...

The proposal made in this article is based on the conviction that there are certain methods of analysis in archaeology that could be significantly improved i f t hey incorporated quantitative t echniques; o ne o f those methods is undoubtedly that of the stratigraphic reading of elevations. In the course of this document, our background in this reg...

Complete 3D models of five alluvial reaches affected by the removal of Inturia dam (Leitzaran River) have been obtained through laser scanner techniques. Removal was accomplished in four phases, 3 m per year, and completed in January 2016. Data registration started before the removal started in 2013 and every year after. Therefore erosion and sedim...

The use of topographic instruments for massive data capture, like laser scanner, automatic photogrammetry or drones, is very frequent in the geometric documentation of different realities like heritage, industry or geomorphology. However, the apparent simplicity in the handling of such devices and the high speed of the measurement hides the true wo...
Conference Paper
This project describes the coordination undertaken in the Bachelor’s degree in Geomatic and Surveying Engineering in the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) after the integration in the European Higher Education Area, explaining how cooperative learning can positively contribute to the teaching-learning process.

Dependency on unsustainable energy sources like fossil fuels is at the stake due to their contribution to global warming and climate change. The pursue of development and exploitation of alternative, cost-effective and environmentally friendly energy sources like renewables energies is vital for the reduction of greenhouse emissions to the atmosphe...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The methodology and results of two dam removals in two different rivers is presented and compared. One removed all-at-once and the second one in a four-stage removal process. Methodology included topographical measurements of the channel, TLS measurements of river bed and bars and sediment grain size and transport. Morphological channel adjustments...
Article
Dam removal has been demonstrated to be one of the most frequent and effective fluvial restoration actions but at most dam removals, especially of small dams, there has been little geomorphological monitoring. The results of the geomorphological monitoring implemented in two dams in the rivers Urumea and Leitzaran (northern Spain) are presented. Th...
Conference Paper
It is well known that there are high dropout rates in engineering faculties. There are plenty of reasons that can explain these bad results, among which we can mention group integration problems, lack of motivation or difficulty to adapt to the university study methodology. In this work we propose a Four-day Welcome Program for first-year students...

Resumen Se presenta la metodología diseñada para el seguimiento geomorfológico del derribo de las presas de Mendaraz (río Urumea) e Inturia (río Leitzaran) en Gipuzkoa, así como los resultados obtenidos. Se han realizado secciones transversales, perfiles longitudinales, abundantes mediciones de procesos sobre testigos, mediciones con escáner láser...

A new supervised burned area mapping software named BAMS (Burned Area Mapping Software) is presented in this paper. The tool was built from standard ArcGISTM libraries. It computes several of the spectral indexes most commonly used in burned area detection and implements a two-phase supervised strategy to map areas burned between two Landsat multit...

A methodology for dam removal monitoring and the results of two case studies is presented: Mendaraz dam (Urumea River) and Inturia dam (Leitzaran River), both located in Gipuzkoa. This monitoring is conducted by river survey cross-sections, measurements of processes and granulometrical analysis. Fast sediment erosion and sedimentation together with...

Geometric documentation and the representation of buildings, with the objective of using these as a basis for historic or architectonic studies, offer a wide range of methodologies, each with their own specific characteristics. Before beginning documentation, it is necessary to make a preliminary analysis of the final needs of the work to choose th...
