The Universidad de Ingeniería & Tecnología

The Universidad de Ingeniería & Tecnología (UTEC), is an educational institution with a particular focus on engineering and technology applied to various fields.

The aims of the university programs are to share knowledge and provide teaching with a focus on investigation and application, creating a favorable learning and development environment.

To achieve this, UTEC has put together a team comprised of the most competent engineers in their fields, whose work is supported by recognized local companies. They also have the support of foreign influential institutions and educational centers. These factors make UTEC an ideal environment for stimulating ingenuity.

UTEC believes that the main tools for professionals of tomorrow are science, technology and of course ingenuity. Ingenuity is an important trait which should be used to its full potential for sustainability and human development. UTEC study programs are designed so that the knowledge acquired can be applied to various areas and/or very specific areas. These programs included degrees, short courses and tailor-made courses. This allows participants to study real cases, local and foreign, that can be applied directly to their workplace.
