Cuban society has been for years in full development , and not from the attempt to reestablish relations with the United States.

Here you have 3 recommendations to know a little about the subject (+ You can find in our main page several articles that refer to the digitization of Cuban society)


Recommendation 1: Visit the Site of the Cuban University of Informatics Sciences (UCI)

With the vision of the future of Commander in Chief Fidel Castro Ruz, the University of Informatics Sciences (known as UCI) emerges in the year 2002. The remodeling of old buildings in the area where the UCI is currently located and the construction of other buildings for the new student city was made in only 106 days. This allowed the University to open its doors to the first academic year on September 23rd, 2002 with 2,008 students and more than 300 professors from all over the country.

Back in History: BTW 1938 and 1959 it was a place for a Child Guidance Center with the Real name: Reformatory of Torrens known as the room of  horror  because of  the treatment  that was  given to the children who were in that place. Read the rest of the History HERE

High quality academic programs in different modalities are available for national and foreign applicants. To enter the University successfully, it is important to know the necessary requirements. If U R Interested:

In accordance with the legal provisions approved by the Ministry of Higher Education of Cuba

  • Foreign citizens,  permanent resident in the country, may enter the higher education institutions under the same legal provisions adopted for Cuban citizens.
  • Foreign citizens, non-permanent resident, enter the higher education institutions as agreed in signed and ratified by the governments of their respective countries agreements.
  • Non-Spanish-speaking foreigner citizens must demonstrate their mastery of the Spanish language. To do this, they can carry out a sufficiency test or present a proof of accreditation recognized in Cuba. (If this requirement is not met, the applicant will not be able to enroll in our high school home, until he certifies an adequate command of the Spanish language.) Look @ New York Cervantes Institute 

Recommendation 2: Know what the videogames developer community is doing in Cuba

Cuban Video Game Community  – VERTEX Center

The VERTEX center of the Cuban University of Informatic Science invite people interested in teaching, research, development and use of video games to form the Cuban Community of Video Games (CCVJ).

This Portal is the ideal medium to promote and extend collaboration in the CCVJ. The interested  will be able to find the latest news related to videogames in Cuba and the world, as well as courses, events, solved problems and resources that will be used for work or improvement.

Recommendation 3: Know about  Young Computer Club + Mochila Blog (the backpack blog)

Network of technology centers that emerged on September 8, 1987, at the initiative of Fidel, with the aim of contributing to the socialization of technologies for all cuban society

Not only do young people access this site. They offer programs of care for adults, and seniors. People with disabilities find in the club  also their space with programs especially developed by the Cuban intellect.

In the other hand, the backpack is Cultural product that offers an entertainment option for all ages and works as a non-traditional television channel, where the viewer can create their own programming, as they provide quality materials that reinforce the essential moral values of Cuba society.
