Commitment to Action

UTEC's New Campus for New Engineering

Commitment by

Hochschild Mining Plc

In 2013, the Hochschild Group committed to construct a non-profit engineering university campus, UTEC, to address the shortage of STEM education opportunities in Peru. Drawing from the successful model of the Hochschild Group's partner, TECSUP, the university will provide world class education to one-thousand Peruvian students annually, regardless of socio-economic circumstances. UTEC's holistic engineering education system will lead to expanded job opportunities for graduates and will expand Peru's competitiveness in the global economy. UTEC will specifically target women in recruitment outreach, and will engage female students in a mentorship program, connecting students with successful female professionals in the STEM field.
