The National Technological University is a Spanish University. It is a country-wide national university in Argentina, and considered to be among the top engineering schools in the country. Hosting over 75,000 students, its student body is comparable to Argentina's third-largest university and exceeded significantly only by the University of Buenos Aires (UBA) (over 300,000 students). It has 29 semi-independent branches of various sizes located all over the country. The National Technological University (Universidad Tecnológica Nacional, UTN) was established as the National Workers' University (Universidad Obrera Nacional) by Law 13229, signed by President Juan Perón on August 19, 1948. It was created to cover the lack of technical specialists in the country at that time. The degree granted was that of Factory Engineer in many specialties. On October 14, 1959, the university was renamed as the National Technological University by law 14855. This marked the official beginning of the university as it is today.
The National Technological University is the only national university in the country with a focus on engineering. Many of the available programs have an intermediate diploma as well, typically after completing up to the 3rd or 4th year (generally Analyst's and Technician's degrees).
The university also offers a broad range of degrees at tertiary and postgraduate level, including those of Specialist, Master and Doctorate(PhD) in Engineering. The engineering programs taught are Aeronautical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Information Systems Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. With the coordination of top faculties and brilliant students the University scores 40.50 and ranks 100.
The National Technological University consists of top researchers and reviewers like Julio J. Castillo, Diego Martín Ferreyra, Pablo A. Kler, German Cespedes, Miguel Prado Lima and Uriel R. Cukierman.
Uriel Rubén Cukierman received a professional degree in Electronic Engineering from the Universidad Tecnológica Nacional (UTN), Argentina, and a master’s degree in Enterprise Information Systems Management from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), Spain. He is presently working on his PhD thesis in the area of Learning Sciences at the Universidad de Buenos Aires (UBA), Argentina. Former Director of the Learning Technologies Bachelor at UTN. Electronic Department founder and former Director at Technical School ORT Argentina. Research interests in Learning Technologies include the areas of mobile devices, learning management systems and the digital divide. Professor Cukierman has contributed to the National Universities Network as a member of its Administrating Committee and has worked as consultant for the National Communication Secretary and National Education Ministry in projects for distance learning and reducing the digital divide. Taught at the university level for over thirty years in electronics, computing, multimedia and learning technologies. He has served as a lecturer in seminars, courses and other specialized activities throughout Argentina and around the world. Wrote and published several original technical documents in different newspapers, journals and magazines in Argentina and in other countries. Produced three books about Learning Technologies and Engineering Education, one of which was published by Pearson. Authored five book chapters and more than 40 technical papers in refereed journals and conferences.
