Dr. Ignasi Florensa graduated as MSc in Civil Engineering at UPC, Barcelona (2007) and has three Masters one in Environmental Engineering from IQS School of Engineering (2011), a master on Didactics of Mathematics at Secondary Level from Universitat Autònoma de Barceona (2012) and a Master in Research in Chemical Engineering from IQS School of Engineering (2013) He worked in the private sector as field Civil Engineer and Project Engineer (2006-2011). He joined the Mechanical Department of the EUSS School of Engineering in 2011 and he is currently Head of the University ? Corporate and Teaching Innovation Area. He completed his PhD in 2018 about the contributions of the epistemological and didactic analysis on study processes in engineering within the Anthropological Theory of the Didactic framework. He belongs to the international research groups on Analytics, Simulations and Inquiry in STEM and Business Education (ASISTEMBE) and the ATD group (www.atd-tad.org). In 2019 he obtained the accreditation of lecturer issued by the Agency for the Quality of the University System of Catalonia (AQU) and the AQU has validate a six-year period of research activity.

Scientific interests

My research focuses mainly on the analysis of study processes in higher education in the field of anthropological theory of the didactic. First of all, I study the ecological conditions that govern the design and implementation of study and research paths in engineering. Second, I also study the transitions in mathematical education in engineering and the implementation of study and research paths that reduce these transitional phenomena.
