With the tenth graduation of the University of Computing Science (UCI by its Spanish acronym), scheduled for July 19, there will be more than 14 000 graduates from this house of higher learning, created by the leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro.
At a press conference, Miriam Nicado Garcia, UCI rector, noted that on that day, more than 500 students will receive the diploma certifying them as engineers.
She described as historic this school year, in which, it has been met the mission for which the school was founded in 2002.
PhD. Nicado Garcia recalled the words of the Commander in Chief when he said that the UCI should be an institution to train engineers, allowing the country to have at least one of its graduate in each municipality.
Referring to this primary objective, she mentioned that other Cuban organizations, bodies and institutions have on their payrolls a graduate from this entity, highly qualified to help computerizing Cuban society, along with other specialists who also contribute to this goal.
She added that in search of promoting professional development, the UCI maintains the strategy of doctoral training and skills events and festivals are also conducted.
UCI is currently engaged in more than 100 development projects with 139 entities, and this year received the plaque that internationally certifies it in the software production process.
The central graduation ceremony will be on July 19 at Karl Marx Theater.
