Quintana Roo Governor Roberto Borge Angulo stated that the Polytechnic University of Quintana Roo (Upqroo) is ready to accept more students in the 2015 school cycle, which begins Sept. 1.
This is following progress on the construction of the new building for physio-therapy training, as well as another new facility to be primarily used for classrooms. A total of 20 million pesos ($1.2 million) have been invested into the projects.
The governor explained that the Upqroo educational year will begin with the opening of the biomedical engineering course, which will be included in six academic programs. These are biotechnical engineering, software engineering, financial engineering, biomedical engineering, small and medium enterprise (SME) administration and physio-therapy.
“Thanks to the support of President Enrique Peña Nieto’s government, the university is growing in terms of matriculation, academic programs and infrastructure. This is helping us reach the educational goals set out in the Quintana Roo Plan 2011-2016,” said Borge Angulo.
The statesman added that the first stage of construction on the physio-therapy building has been completed. This is the best-attended course at the university, with 360 students.
“A further 7 million pesos have been set aside for the second phase of construction, which will involve fitting the building with the necessary equipment,” he said.
Borge Angulo clarified that this space, which will have diagnosis, rehabilitation and academic units, will allow students to practice their studies and will educate them on how a clinic provides services to the community.
Principal José Luis Pech Galera added that building will contain a reception, waiting room, three consultation rooms, social work facilites, electrotherapy areas, occupational therapy areas, among other services.
