On Wednesday, September 27th, the Polytechnic University of San Luis Potosí (UPSLP) received 30 students from the Higher Technological Institute of Tamazunchale from the department of Computer Systems Engineering, with the aim of contributing to the professional training of young university students by providing them the opportunity to visit the laboratories of the Center for New Technologies (CNT) and the Certification Center (CC). These Centers are of great importance for the UPSLP given their contribution to the theoretical-practical training and certifications of the Departments of Telematics Engineering and Engineering in Information Technologies of our university.
Students are in the first semester of Computer Systems Engineering and are part of the CISCO Networking Academy program. The activities in which they participated were:
● A lecture about the certifications offered by CISCO Networking Academy and the Pearson VUE Certification Center of the UPSLP and an offer for them to complete the certification exams for CISCO and other Technology Sponsors at UPSLP.
● A workshop focused on multi-user communication using the CISCO Packet Tracer simulator, as a complement to their training in networks that they study in their institution.
The activities were organized by Liliana Gámez, professor from the Department of Engineering in Information Technologies (ITI) and head of the CISCO Academy at the UPSLP, and Luigi Cruz, professor from the visiting institution and alumnus of the courses for instructors of the UPSLP Training Center.
The Polytechnic University of San Luis Potosí appreciates the trust placed by the Higher Technological Institute of Tamazunchale to carry out these activities that strengthen the technical skills of students and motivate them to achieve the certifications that today are required and demanded in the world of work.
