ISPGAYA offers in its infrastructures, facilities, equipment and different teaching materials for a unique learning experience.
Centre for Electronics and Metal Mechanics
The Institute recognises the high value that the library has, both in the permanent training of teachers and in the scientific training of students. Therefore, it annually invests large sums in the acquisition of scientific works that are available to the entire school community.
ISPGAYA has in its facilities 7 rooms designated as Computer Laboratories, providing more than 70 computers.
The computer labs are open to the entire ISPGAYA community, and students, teachers or employees may use any computer, as long as it is not in a room where a class is taking place.
The computers are networked, and users can access the different servers and services provided by ISPGAYA, including free access to the Internet.
