16 March 2017

(ANS - Vitoria) - According to results released by the Ministry of Education (MEC), the Catholic University Centre of Vitória is the best university centre of the State of Espírito Sant and the eighth best in all of Brazil. This was confirmed in research conducted by Anísio Teixeira (Inep), the National Institute of Educational Studies and Research. On 8 March last they published data on National Exam of Student Performance (Enade) for the year 2015. The Administration courses, Accounting Sciences and Psychology were evaluated with 4 points out of 5.

The University Centre belongs to the Saint John Bosco Province of Belo Horizonte. In the past two years it got 4 or 5 points in all the courses evaluated.

According to the Rector of the University, Salesian Brother Cledson Rodrigues, the community has good reason to be proud of this result. "This institution was founded 16 years ago as a Salesian Catholic Faculty in Espírito Santo. Last year, with great effort, we managed to turn it into Vitória Catholic University Centre, with approval of MEC. Now, receiving the results of this evaluation of Enade 2015 is a cause of great satisfaction. It is the result of planning, huge investment in quality education based on the pedagogy of Don Bosco and, above all, a highly committed and qualified staff. This result is for all involved and strengthens the bond of the University Centre with society."

Projects and extensive courses geared towards science, agreements with large companies, interdisciplinary, innovation and entrepreneurship projects, active methodologies, an increasingly allied theory of practice-oriented through Masters and Doctorates ... these are all elements that offer the centre's students full training and that testify to the zeal of the university centre for educational quality.

The institution also follows the technological innovations and changes in education paradigms. It has been investing for a long time in software, tools, games and virtual learning environments.  In this model, students become the centre of learning and the teachers work with the challenges and real situations.
