Graduated in Ing.Civil 2 years ago, The Faculty of engineering and architecture has excellent professors in the telecommunications school, all professors held management positions in private and public institutions Cantv, At & amp; t, PDVSA, Siemens, Venevisión, ministries, ect … the dean is an internationally recognized figure in the area of engineering education, the university has agreements with the European University of Madrid, which means that the title of telecommunications engineer is automatically approved in that European institution. It has many aspects to improve in terms of basic services, some laboratories need to be reactivated, and teachers deserve better salaries, but their human capital is of the first line has a direct help to students who live there daily and demonstrate their intentions to improve any aspect at all times is worth studying in this institution I’m glad to be part of it and I recommend it to those who want to enter
I am a graduate of Santa Maria University, as Odóntologo. Undoubtedly, this institution is one of the best universities in Caracas. In the particular of Dentistry is the best option, has good facilities, in addition to great specialists with important academic training. Something that very few people know is that in the School of Dentistry of the USM there is a center of attention to children with disabilities and people with HIV, which is a national reference.
It is one of the best universities in Venezuela, has the best Faculty of Dentistry and of course with its best students that can be, in spite of the situation in the country that is currently being lived, operated in the best way possible, promoting their Values of excellence and discipline in all of their houses of study.
The USM was a strange University by the time I studied there. It allowed me to work while studying which was a huge advantage. The teachers were fine, some good some bad. The management and installations always had problems and in our faculty there were only three operating bathrooms for five floors. What was great about the USM was the people I met. The USM were very strict with Community Service, this was a good thing for me, because I feel that I contributed with my community. The Inscription process was efficient and the university never stopped classes even during difficult political times.
