"Before entering university, I knew nothing about programming and little about computers. Making the decision to study systems at UP was the best thing that ever happened to me. It took me into a world of immeasurable size, where every day I learn something new and I am being part of the industry that moves the world".

Sergio Velázquez, ISGC, class of 2017-2022, GDL Campus

"Studying engineering at UP opened the doors to a world of professional possibilities through the subjects and the hands-on projects that bring you closer to industry. Every project is a goal to achieve and along the way you make good friends, use your creativity to do innovative things, learn from your professors and improve your professional skills".

Fernanda Gallo, ISGC, class of 2017-2022, Campus GDL

"Today's industry requires programmers who are up to date with their knowledge, who have the basic skills necessary for a competitive industry. All this is fulfilled by the degree and much more. But what is most required, and what almost no university offers, is new knowledge in the programming and technology sector. The computer graphics part of the course contains new technologies in special sectors. It is not the same to be a web programmer as to know how to program and use the full potential of a graphics card. This and the high level of personalisation are the difference between the UP and other universities.

Oscar Ochoa, ISGC, class of 2016-2021, GDL Campus

"Panamericana helped me to develop my logical-mathematical thinking. With the perfect combination of science, programming and technology, to contribute to the development and resolution of problems in different sectors. Since mid-job many of us have found jobs, and we see what a difference studying Computer Graphics and Systems Engineering has made".

Karla González, ISGC, class of 2018-2023, Campus GDL

"Studying ISGC gave me the best tool I have ever got in my life, programming. It is 100% applicable and transferable across all industries and has given me a mindset of logic and optimisation. It has opened many doors for me, each one better than the last".

Bernardo Moya, ISGC, class of 2017-2022, GDL Campus

"Studying Systems at UP allowed me to develop key skills for my professional performance in the IT field, while at the same time I was able to learn from professors who are experts in their field and who know, first hand, the needs of the industry we are targeting. All in a cooperative environment while remaining competitive and challenging. Things that, as a videogame developer, have allowed me to form part of international development teams".

Heráclito Pérez, class of 2016-2021, Campus GDL
