Yachay Tech University is the first research intensive university of 
Ecuador.  The University is located in the Inter-Andean valley about two 
hours north of Quito.  Yachay means knowledge in Kichwa and Yachay Tech 
is adjacent to the developing Yachay “City of Knowledge,” the first 
planned technology city in the Andean region.  The mission of the 
University is to provide an international environment in which research, 
learning, technology, and professional activity are valued and 
supported.  Since opening in March of 2014, the student population has 
grown to a total of approximately 800 undergraduates.  We anticipate 
initiating doctoral programs in the near future.  Each of the 
University´s six schools (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Geology, 
Mathematics, and Social Sciences) features a distinct academic structure 
that pairs engineering with basic sciences.  An intensive English 
language program qualifies students for the upper level coursework that 
will be taught entirely in English.
