‘Trabajo de Llano’ Research Group

The research group ‘Trabajo de Llano’ facilitates interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary knowledge through educational research processes that lead to the formulation and implementation of projects with high regional impact. Trabajo De Llano is formulated through three different axes:

  • The training, that has as a goal to strengthen skills that allow not only for the design and management of research projects, but also for the consolidation of knowledge and academic recognition under the criteria established by Colciencias.
  • The consolidation of the research group, through the recognition of its specialized technology and communication laboratories, including the laboratories of the Educational Development Centre (CED) of UNIMINUTO. Additionally, the Directorate for Inter-Institutional Relations and Projects allows not only teachers, but students as well, to actively participate in research activities and be able to generate proposals, through research projects and internships and the systematization of social or business practices.
  • The third axis is the creation of strategic alliances with governmental entities and individuals of the regional, national and international scene. Currently, the University is managing agreements with the Ministry of Culture, the Presidential Agency for International Cooperation and the Municipal and Departmental Secretaries of Education, among others, in addition to its collaborative work with governments, such as those of Cuba and Bulgaria.


UNIMINUTO’s ‘Technology in Software Development’ program has been certified under Resolution No. 01354 of February 3, 2015 by the Ministry of Education for the provision of curriculum in informatics. This software development program is a continuation and evolution of UNIMINUTO’s current Computing Technology program.
