In addition to the teaching activity (7 undergraduate studies, 6 master's degrees and 4 doctoral programs), at the EEBE are also linked 41 groups and research centers in different fields of engineering (biomedicine, electricity, electronics and automation, energy, materials, mechanics, chemistry and nanotechnology) . One of these groups is also a member of the TECNIO network of the Generalitat de Catalunya.

At the moment, EEBE is the main motor of the Diagonal-BesOs Campus. This space of innovation and knowledge, located between Barcelona and Sant Adria de BesOs, is one of the most powerful university campuses in sustainable engineering in Catalonia, with more than 150,000 m 2Building roof to accommodate teaching, research, innovation, business activity and services to the university community.
