The Mexican government plans to establish a technology training center at the Aguascalientes campus of the Center for Economic Teaching and Research (known as CIDE) in a bid to promote the implementation of technology across various industries.
While CIDE boasts a substantial physical infrastructure, it employs a relatively small number of personnel. To address this challenge, the National Council of Humanities, Sciences, and Technologies (Conahcyt) stated that the university’s facilities will be utilized to foster the growth of this technology-focused project, particularly in the fields of applied science, water, health and education.
This decision aims to revitalize Infotech, a government agency dedicated to developing technology solutions for public institutions. The newly established technology center will work closely with Infotech to offer comprehensive educational training in various technological domains.
The exact operational structure of the technology center remains unclear. However, some analysts predict that it will play a pivotal role in strengthening the country’s digital infrastructure and fostering technological advancements.
It’s been reported by local media outlets that the center’s primary objective will be to modernize the manufacturing sector by providing technological support to those seeking to manufacture medical devices like oxygen concentrators and electrocardiographs.
Despite the potential benefits, the upper echelons of CIDE leadership have expressed concerns about the prospect of a technology center being established on their campus.
