New Campus of Honduras University Takes Shape Next to Altia in San Pedro Sula

STAFF REPORT

Honduras’ educational institute UNITEC is developing a high-tech university at Altia Business Park, an leading-edge technology park in the northwestern city of San Pedro Sula.

The institution stated in a press release that it will spend as much as $20 million dollars for the university which will be developed in three phases.

The modern and fully air-conditioned campus will have academic and administrative areas along with labs, research centers and an auditorium with 400 seats. The university, whose construction will be completed in 2016, will also house a recreation center, a gym and an outdoor tennis court.

“This building is designed to comply with the highest international standards for university campuses, and without a doubt, its high quality will make it the best and most modern educational infrastructure in the country, and among the top campuses in Central America,” said Luis Zelaya, a rector of UNITEC.

The university will have ‘synergy with Altia Business Park, a business and technology complex that is a potential source of jobs for students’, stated Ana Laffite, UNITEC’s vice-rector for the San Pedro Sula Campus.

Altia Business Park is the first smart city in Honduras and is home to a several BPO/ call center and information technology companies, including KM2 Solutions. (Stream Global Services is also opening soon at Altia).

Ana Laffite believes that the university will contribute to both educational and economic development of the country.
