Instituto Tecnológico de Santo Domingo —or Santo Domingo Institute of Technology (also known as INTEC), is a private, coeducational, university in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. It was founded on June 15, 1972, by a group of young professionals and is considered the best institute of technology in the country.[1]

History

The University began with the intention to contribute to the social transformation of the country, the continuous improvement of the quality of life and the preservation of moral and material patrimony. It was incorporated legally as a non-profit institution by means of Presidential Decree no. 2389 on June 15, 1972. Its original academic activities included post-graduate programs, permanent education, and scientific research. In 1973, the university integrated other fields of study into its curriculum. Its current curricular structure is based on the quarterly system, offering academic programs in Engineering, Business Administration, the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Medicine.
