Testimonials

A university that not only consists of subjects and grades but represents a whole life experience. The Interactive Media track was my best decision, giving me the opportunity to develop my skills and creativity in a dynamic and diverse environment that adapts to the tastes and expectations of each student. I am proud to have been a part of USFQ as a student, and today, as a graduate. Forever a Dragon! " Darío Pazmiño, Junior Jobsity Developer.

"The Graphic Design major Interactive Media track at USFQ makes your mind generate proposals and functional solutions for problems that are presented daily in a creative way. During the four years that I attended my studies, I learned that success is achieved with teamwork, and that is precisely what the Liberal Arts encourages, forming multidisciplinary teams that observe the world with critical eyes, with different perspectives, but whose The goal is to solve problems together. Studying Graphic Design with an Interactive Media itinerary gives you the freedom and tools to create functional and aesthetically pleasing digital products. For me the best thing about the degree is the practical classes because you learn through experimentation " María Fernanda Ramírez, Webmaster of Grupo El Comercio.

“I think I could not have chosen a better university or major to train in the professional field; USFQ is one of the universities that does not stop reinventing itself or updating itself as the semesters go by. In a career of growth as exponential as Graphic Design with an emphasis on technologies, it seems vitally important to me to constantly update themes and development methods that are always at the level of current technologies. This is why I find it great that the university always seeks to be up to date and brings new development processes to students. I really enjoyed being able to soak up development-related fields and study subjects that are essential to understanding each stage of the design and code process. With an excellent group of teachers, the USFQ is equipped to attend to all the doubts and problems that one may have in the training process " Juan Camilo Sus, senior student.
