The University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, also known as the ULPGC is a Spanish university located in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the capital city of Gran Canaria island. It consists of five campuses: four in Gran Canaria and one in the island of Lanzarote, with Tafira being the largest. The University was created in 1989 after many years of petitions from the people of Gran Canaria. The university was incorporated through the University Reorganization Act of 1989. ULPGC was created as the aggregation of the teaching centers of former "Universidad Politécnica de Canarias", focused on engineering , and the centers from neighboring Universidad de La Laguna that were located in Las Palmas province.
The fields offered are heavily focused towards technical and engineering studies but also include health-related grades and Humanities . ULPGC was one of the first universities in Spain to offer a specific title in "Sea Sciences".
