The University of Cantabria is a young public university, created by a Decree passed on the 18th of August, 1972. Until then,
university education in Santander was limited to the courses offered by The School of Civil Engineering, established in 1966,
and the specialism in Physics in the Faculty of Science, which had been created in 1969. Both the School and the Faculty were
dependent on The University of Valladolid.
The establishment of Santander as an independent University dates from 1971. Two years later, The Faculty of Medicine was
set up, the new Faculty of Science building was inaugurated and The University Colleges of Industrial Engineering, Business
Studies, the College of Mining Engineering in Torrelavega and The Teacher Training School were incorporated.
