New tech school opens in Rio de Janeiro
BARRA MANSA (BDCi) – State officials have inaugurated the first higher education institute in the Rio city of Barra Mansa.
The School of Technology is just under 12,000 square feet and contains eight classrooms, a computer science lab as well as an architecture and network lab.
One of the courses to be offered is Technology in Internet Systems, a three-year program focused on digital entrepreneurship, with 152 open seats.
