New links with various foreign universities, whose representatives recently visited our Academic Institution, will generate positive impact on the work of different areas of the Corporation.
One of them is the president of the Universidad Tecnológica de los Valles Centrales de México, Fidencio Luna, who, in the course of a visit to the Colchagua Campus, signed an agreement for students and teachers exchanges, for the strengthening of research and for development and innovation in high-impact areas.
The director of the Colchagua Campus, Patricio Gómez, explained that it will strengthen "our senior technical training, especially in the areas of tourism and heritage, but also will allow us to explore new development areas for senior technical programs".
Carolina Torres, Director of International Relations, said, about that alliance, that it will enhance technical training, "through the exchange of scientific and technological knowledge in the areas of winemaking and liquor production, as well as internships for students at a foreign institution that has multiple common areas with our programs in Colchagua and other campuses of our University".
President Luna admitted that the problems are very similar, "which will strengthen our institutional work through this collaboration agreement".
Present also was the Academic Vice President from the Konrad Lorenz University of Colombia, Aldo Hernández, who was in favor of signing a bilateral agreement for professors and students exchange, especially with the Departments of Psychology and Engineering and with the Mathematics and Physics Institute. In this regard, the dean of the Department of Psychology, Emilio Moyano, said that a relationship with that University already existed and he added that the good relationship comes from a common approach to psychology."
At the same time, the School of Speech Therapy received Pavi Tossavainen, academic from the University of Helsinki, Finland, who develops research lines comparable with the unit’s, specially those conducted by its director, Exequiel Plaza. "The Finnish population has a high aging curve and being a developed country it has full access to technology. For our part, here we also have a population that is aging at an accelerated rate and, although we are still a developing country, we are the country with the fastest access to computer and digital technology in South America," said Professor Plaza when commenting the mutual interest.
