One of the biggest and most laureate universities in Latin America approved the launch of a Financial Engineering specialization course, whose modules cover crypto and blockchain-related subjects, marking it a historic landmark across the region’s educational sector.

Mexico’s Biggest University Is Set to Teach Crypto Topics on Brand-New Specialization

According to the official announcement in its monthly bulletin, the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) said that the new course would be available for both full-time and part-time students, with a duration of two semesters and four semesters, respectively.

The objective of the course reads as follows:

However, the announcement didn’t provide full details on which subtopics will be dedicated to crypto matters. Still, press reports, citing Eloisa Cadenas, CEO of Mexico-based CryptoFintech, pointed out bitcoin and blockchain technology development as topics discussed within the course.

The UNAM clarified that Financial Engineering is aimed at those who have completed a degree in Engineering, Mathematics, Actuary or graduated from related careers in Physical Mathematical Sciences and Engineering.

The inception of crypto-related topics into the university marks the debut at higher-level educational institutions in Latin America. The course is not a diploma course, as it’s a specialization for those who already earned a degree.

UNAM’s Previous Flirting With Blockchain Topics

But this is not the first time that the Mexico City-based university gives room to blockchain-related topics within their academic curriculum.

On August 20, 2020, the UNAM’s Continuing Education Division of the Faculty of Accounting and Administration offered a diploma course in Financial Technologies, which covered fintech, law, cryptocurrencies, and blockchain topics.

According to Webometrics 2020-2, UNAM is the second-best university in Latin America, behind the University of Sao Paulo. The Mexican university is also known for being the educative institution where all three nation’s Nobel laureates — Alfonso García Robles, Mario Molina, and Octavio Paz — completed their studies.
