University of Camagüey towards new school year



Camagüey, Nov. 14.- The development of a strong methodological work and the continuity of the measures to prevent contagion with Covid-19, will mark the next academic year at the University of Camagüey Ignacio Agramonte Loynaz, whose start is scheduled for February of year 2021.

With less duration, the curriculum will require adjusting content and the search for new alternatives in a different environment that will also require intensive work from the cloisters.

Today there are only just over 200 continuing students from a minimum of specialties, mainly engineering, to finish the 2019-2020 academic year, which, due to its complexities, planned to conclude it in the first half of this month.

Yosvany Miranda Batista, first vice-rector of the institution, explained to the Cuban News Agency that the next stage will be determined by the epidemiological situation in which strict compliance with the measures established against the disease is urgent.

As part of the actions to be carried out, they include preserving the distance in the student residence, classrooms, and computer labs, among other facilities of the center.

Similar interest will be given to products for hand disinfection, footsteps, in addition to the permanent sanitization of areas and surfaces within the University, taking into account the origin of the students from the provinces from Ciego de Ávila to Guantánamo.

As one of the most important spaces, he mentioned the scholarship areas, where about 2,600 students from various territories of the country are normally received, hence a staggered entry must be made, according to the particularities of the faculties and careers.

The University of Camagüey, first founded after the triumph of the Cuban Revolution in 1959, and with 53 years of age, continues its academic processes despite the new scenario caused by the pandemic and prioritizes above all the training of professions that society needs.

It reformulates its strategies in international relations in order to achieve virtual participation in events abroad, and further strengthens ties with other academies in countries such as China, and European nations, through projects of mutual benefit.

The campus, from which more than 1,400 new professionals graduated this year, supports with its trained personnel and researchers various programs to promote key sectors of the economy of the territory and the country. (ACN) (Photo: File)
