Five students from the Department of Telematic Engineering – Networks and Telecommunications- (ITEM-IRTEL) and Information Technology Engineering (ITI), of the Polytechnic University of San Luis Potosí (UPSLP), will participate in the Talent Incubator Program Excellence (CTIPE) which is an initiative of the company CISCO Systems that seeks out talent among students from the different universities that are part of the CISCO Networking Academy program.
The objective is to prepare students at a technical, English and soft skills level so that they have the necessary preparation to apply for a role within the programs for recent graduates that the CISCO Academy has.
The students who will participate are: Josafat Misael Rodríguez Nieto, from the Telematics Engineering Department (ITEM); Víctor Hugo Jiménez Coronado, Brayan Adrián Galván Flores, Diana Rodríguez Espiricueta and Marcelo Ramos Soto, from the Information Technology Engineering Department (ITI). Participants were selected by the UPSLP based on the following criteria: availability for self-study and activities from home, intermediate or advanced English, grade average equal to or greater than 8.5, and close to graduating in 2023. In addition, they will be participating in an Intensive Networking Workshop that will begin the third week of September, with a duration of 6 months.
It is important to mention that the people in charge of the Talent Incubator Program Excellence are Emanuel Vicente, Cisco Customer Experience Academy Program Excellence Experience Manager; Luis González Galindo, Emerging Talent Leader; Liliana Gámez Zavala, Head of the CISCO Academy at UPSLP, as well as Dr. Francisco Cruz Ordaz Salazar, Coordinator of the Academic Departments of ITEM and ITI.
The program represents a great challenge for students, since being the same company that recruits staff, the accepted candidates must have the minimum technology resources, but, above all, demonstrate commitment as well as willingness to develop the skills that will allow them to gain access to a job opportunity in CISCO.
The UPSLP congratulates the students who will be part of this program and wishes them every success in this new project that will contribute to their professional development!
