Cuban University to Boost Professional Training
According to University of Granma Rector Quirino Arias, postgraduate and master's courses will deal with new teaching technologies and subjects taught last year.

Graduates in the specialties of Medicine, Veterinary, Agricultural Sciences, Management and Local Development will be the most benefited professionals, he pointed out.

He added that for the first time, the university would hold courses on subjects of great interest for the province, including communications and informatics, so a new doctorate project will be carried out in conjunction with universities from Spain, Belgium and Germany.

When Hurricane Ike hit the province recently, the University of Granma welcomed, as on previous occasions, dozens of evacuees and created brigades of professors to attend to the residents in flooded-prone areas.

The University of Granma, founded on December 10, 1976, has an enrolment of more than 30,000 students, including students from Latin America and Africa, who are majoring in some 20 specialties.
