Educational Counseling


Welcome to the service link for FIEC students!

This space is dedicated to students of the Faculty of Electronics and Computer Engineering (FIEC), where you will find various resources and tools that will be very useful in your academic life.
We understand the importance of having a practical guide when drafting formal requests, whether for administrative procedures, applying for scholarships, leave permits, among others.
Our selection of request templates will help you create effective and professional documents quickly and easily.
These requests should be addressed to the following email:

Presentation of documents to initiate the degree processing procedure.

  2. Approval of the Integrative Course.
  4. No outstanding debts, whether of VALUE or NON-VALUE, with the Institution.
  5. Completion of pre-professional internships and community service practices, duly registered in the system.

The course cancellation process is an option available to students provided that the event or cause is declared as unforeseeable, irresistible, and not attributable to the student's negligence.
It is important to note that the cancellation process is only applicable in cases of fortuitous events or force majeure, documented to demonstrate an inability to continue studies in all courses, and is not selective.

  • Health/psychological problems.
