Plan Ceibal and Universidad Tecnológica del Uruguay (UTEC)
Launched in September 2020, the partnership between IDSS and Plan Ceibal supports graduate students enrolled in the UTEC Program in Data Science. Joint activities include workshops and tailored support from the MicroMasters Program in Statistics and Data Science.
One of the global pathway schools, UTEC offers graduate credits for students who have completed MicroMasters coursework. The blended learning approach includes four core data science courses and a capstone exam. In addition, UTEC hosts workshops featuring MIT and industry experts.
Plan Ceibal, an educational nonprofit organization in Uruguay, helped to spearhead the partnership.
“Together, we will keep working on our mission to advance the new generation of Latin American data scientists, positioning Uruguay as a regional hub for educational projects on innovation, entrepreneurship, and information and communication technologies.”Leandro Folgar, President of Plan Ceibal
