UNEXPO – Universidad Nacional Experimental Politécnica Antonio José de Sucre

The historical foundation of the University is made up of a vast experience accumulated in many years of service to the country, which is distributed in this way in the three Polytechnic Institutes that gave it a national profile with wide coverage: Barquisimeto, 30 years, Puerto Ordaz and Caracas, 21 and 19 years old respectively. The slopes of its institutional origin go beyond half a century, due to the summative effect of the indicated years of service, whose exponents are the dozens of graduated promotions in different specialties of engineering and related professionals. Today our university institution faces the future with faith and confidence, since its trajectory in terms of space and time is based on accumulated knowledge and experiences, in areas of science, technology and humanism, in the field of its Vice-Rectorates of Barquisimeto, Caracas and Puerto Ordaz. For the Polytechnic University, history begins to be made to the rhythm of birth and rebirth.
