Santo Antão/Higher Education: MpD deputies suggest expanding courses on the island

Porto Novo, Dec 8 (Inforpress) – The deputies of the Movement for Democracy (MpD – poder) elected by Santo Antão on Thursday suggested to the Ministry of Education the creation of more higher education courses on the island by the Science and Agricultural Technology Institute (ICTA).

At a meeting with the Minister of Education, Amadeu Cruz, the MpD parliamentarians proposed the creation of courses linked to rural engineering, the environment, forest issues, renewable energies, water management, livestock, fishing and the manufacturing industry.

Deputy Damião Medina explained that the deputies consider it “fundamental” for ITCA to promote more university courses in Santo Antão, which in its first year of operation is offering two courses, namely agronomy and zootechnics.

“We have encouraged the Ministry of Education to closely monitor the dynamics of teaching activities in order to make the necessary improvements, with a view to consolidating the process on the island of Santo Antão,” said the same source.
