Universidad de Antofagasta
Antofagasta, Chile


University description (as per official university website)

Human organizations are intended to solve the problems that the environment and the interaction between people present the development of the species, thus over time have become increasingly numerous and complex.

In turn, this complexity has meant that its members should be people ready and training in the activities to be developed within each organization. The University is no exception to this description and indeed must be a leader in training individuals who will work with these human groups.

This means you must acquire and generate knowledge and technology that allows its members and those who have the most current forms and useful knowledge of the era.

Within this scheme, the University of Antofagasta, as Regional and State University is required to meet these requirements, first, to no longer be an institution of higher education, and another to stay in the forefront of the development of Second Region of Chile.

This is how our University in recent years has printed a different rhythm to his work and the effort of all members is currently developing a modern teaching. But most importantly, putting their work worldwide scientific and technological research.

We walked for a third year of operation, more secure and efficient, our PhD and Masters programs accredited, and fruits showing through numerous scientific publications.

Growing number of national and foreign scholars come as guest lecturers and our students go to laboratories in Chile and other countries.

I think we are on the right path and the work of all continue to grow in size and quality. The proximity of the new Institutional Accreditation process requires me to note the time-consuming activity of managers, academics, staff and students in the preparation of this grueling but necessary work.

The quality standards are becoming more demanding and our units are preparing to show that its members have improved their training and procedures, as well as the University of Antofagasta, on the whole, has improved its structure and services.

We are currently in the process of socialization process that evaluators have the best vision of our reality and we can get a score of years, which allows us to direct our resources and efforts to other activities, such as growth and transformation a reference entity scientific, technological, innovative and educational.

Historical Review

The constant renewal of technologies in the industry generated in 1918, the creation of the Industrial School of Nitrate to meet the needs of skilled labor. That was how they took the first steps in the development of technical higher education - professional Antofagasta Region.

The North kept secrets and riches that required the intervention of professionals and students of university education. The uncontrollable desire for scientific knowledge encouraged local people to promote the creation of an education center in the area.

The first training center was transformed, with the passage of time, the School of Nitrate and Mines, and later consolidated as professional body builder par excellence, the School of Mines in Antofagasta.

Later, thanks to the efforts of pioneers nortino and supported by the Ministry of Education, the School of Mines is incorporated, in 1952, the State Technical University (UTE).

A few years later, in 1957, establishing the University Center North Zone, part of the University of Chile, which opens with courses in Biology and Chemistry Education and Social Service. Later, in 1962, becomes the Regional College of Antofagasta.

In 1968, following the university reform, establishing the Regional Office of the University of Chile, becoming the second educational institution in the area.

Decree-Law, DFL N 1, 10 March 1981, gives legal support to the merger of the two Houses of studies that give rise to the University of Antofagasta, smith center professionals are recognized throughout the country.

Since its inception, each of the persons who made up and integrate our campus, have contributed valuably active in consolidating, coordinating their efforts, visions and wills. Thus, it has been possible to fully identify our institution with interests in the region of Antofagasta, engaging in development and constantly looking respond creatively to the demands that society demands, building the present and future of the region .
