Yachay Tech University, Ecuador’s first world-class, globally connected and regionally transformative center for research and education, is designed to be an interdisciplinary institution, with an internationally recognizable philosophy. The university is strategically positioned at the heart of the developing Yachay City of Knowledge, the first planned technology city in the Andean region. And,... as an English medium university, Yachay makes English instruction the cornerstone of its programs.
Yachay Tech, with a vision to become the leading global research university in Latin America and its magnitude and potential transformative effect on an entire region, challenges the imagination of those academic minds who want to change the world and have a true impact on society.
Untapped knowledge from the world’s most bio-diverse country and true belief in the power of interdisciplinary collaboration has defined the Yachay academic structure. By combining sciences and engineering in each of the six schools of Yachay Tech (biology, chemistry, physics, geology, mathematics/computer science, and social sciences), the aim is to educate a generation of entrepreneurs that creatively will tackle the world’s problems.
