Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Rovira i Virgili University is located in the cities of Tarragona and Reus, Catalonia. Its name is in honour to Antoni Rovira i Virgili. The University is a teaching and research institution with centres in Tarragona, Reus, Vila-seca, Tortosa and El Vendrell. University education in the Tarragona area goes back to the 16th century when Cardinal Gaspar Cervantes de Gaeta founded a university to teach Grammar, the Arts and Theology. This Universitas Tarraconensis was practically wiped out by the reprisals of Philip V after the War of Succession. University education did not return to the Tarragona area until the second half of the 20th century, when three different paths converged to form the Universitat Rovira i Virgili: The Universitat Laboral, created by the Ministry of Employment in 1956, started to teach technical courses for the first time in 1961-62 with specialities in mechanical, electrical and chemical engineering. It depended on the Terrassa School of Engineering. Later, in 1972, the title of "Engineer" was changed to "Technical Engineer," and the Universitat Laboral ceased to depend on Terrassa and dropped its mechanical and engineering courses.
