For the institution, Certified by the Board itself in 2014, the inspection itself “is a source of joy because we have corroborated its results for more than five years in the different spheres of investigation in daily work,” Fatima Addine Hernandez, technical-teaching advisor of the Board, said.
The commission is made up of professors, academics and experts from the Cuban Association of Pedagogues “who come together as Cubans committed to education and to any place dedicated to improving education in our country,” the researcher said.
The first university founded in Camagüey by the Cuban Revolution in 1967 has a total of 21 majors, more than twenty master’s degrees, and an enrollment of nearly 16,000 students in the different modalities and courses and was recently awarded three prizes by the Ibero-American Postgraduate University Association AUIP.
Santiago Lajes, rector of the UC said that “our management is based on science and the use of technology, and there are prioritized sectors, and we have projects focused on food sovereignty, energy efficiency, the exploitation of renewable sources, industrial management, sustainable development in the tourism sector or housing construction.”
After a fierce fight against the pandemic that led this university to become an isolation center, the UC has again intensified international exchange and collaboration, and ties with the Artificial Intelligence Institute of Hebei, China, as well as the VLIR project with the Council of Universities of Flanders in Belgium.
