Sergio Martín Gutiérrez is Associate Professor (Profesor Titular de Universidad) at UNED, working in the Industrial School. He started in 2002 as researcher at UNED and in 2007 he started as lecturer in different categories: first as Ayudante (assistant professor), then as Ayudante Doctor (Doctor assistant professor), Profesor Contratado Interino (interim associate professor), Contratado Doctor (associate professor), and, since March 2019, as Profesor Titular de Universidad (Associate Professor - Civil servant).

His teaching work is focused on the field of digital electronics, microcontroller programming and the Internet of Things. His research activity focuses on the field of educational innovation applied to engineering, particularly on-line (virtual and remote) laboratories, as well as in the Internet of Things and mobile-ubiquitous systems.

The main scientific-technical objectives at mid-long term is to continue the research on educational technologies, especially on on-line labs to go on improving the services and didactic resources provided to his students. For that task, he is leading a group of international researchers to analyze the technology trends likely to impact engineering education. He is the chair of the Engineering Education Technologies Report (EERT) since 2011, supported by IEEE Education Society. He has also been the co-principal investigator of 3 Horizon Reports dedicated to STEM. As one of the most prominent topics to work on a mid-long term he has identified the development of tools to facilitate the adoption of the new standard defined for on-line laboratories. He has arranged a group of international specialists that participated in its definition to leader its future development. This work is expected to have a high-impact on the development of future didactic materials in STEM disciplines.
