In order to fulfill its educational proposal, CETEC follows a philosophical guidance and a curriculum designed especially for the contemporary young student, thus by having a teaching staff with diverse academic and professional experiences, with different titles, and fully qualified to act as intermediaries in the process of student development.
The location of the schools within the university campuses is another distinctive quality of CETEC. Library, museum, laboratories, gyms, sports fields, swimming pool, theater and cinema are part of the physical structure of the franchised University offered to CETEC students, who can then use the results of intellectual production, scientific and cultural characteristics peculiar to a university environment.
