11,200 University Students in Computer Science Education a Priority for the Cuban Government
"We are extending Cubas Computer Sciences University to three regional faculties, where advanced studies in polytechnic institutes of computer science is a great experiment that forces us to create and to think every day," said Carlos Valenciaga, a member of Cubas Council of State. He spoke during the celebration of the first anniversary of the initiative, which coincides with the birthdays of the Young Communist League and the Pioneers Organization.

The towns of Artemisa and Manzanillo (both in Granma Province) and Moron (in Ciego de Ávila Province) are the three municipalities that are welcoming the 972 youths who are currently enrolled in this new effort. This number adds to the 11,200 university students from across the entire country who are now being trained at the computer science university in Havana.

In a meeting with teachers and students at the faculty in Artemisa, Valenciaga remarked that this project continues to be a priority for the Cuban government. He invited those who are today enjoying the privilege of studying in a university like this to help recruit more students, so that each faculty continues to grow and serve the computer science needs of each region.

Roilán Rodríguez, a member of the National Bureau of the Young Communist League (UJC), highlighted the symbolism of that faculty, located in this western municipality, as an homage to the new generation of the local students who are taking up the tasks of the Revolution.

Likewise, Gretchen Gómez, president of the Federation of Secondary School Students (FEEM), accompanied the future computer engineers in this day of birthday celebrations, and called upon them to join in the training of this specialtys new technicians, who are needed for the production of software for the countrys economic and social development.
