Overview
The University Of Santiago de Chile (USACH) is one of Chile’s most traditional and prestigious State higher education institutions. It was founded in 1849, as the Escuela de Artes y Oficios (EAO) - School of Arts and Crafts, which assumed the task of training professionals for national industrialization. It continued to grow into the Universidad Técnica del Estado (UTE) established in 1947, with eight regional campuses throughout the country. In 1981, the University was officially established as the Universidad de Santiago de Chile, with a sole 32-acre campus in the heart of Santiago, Chile’s capital city.

USACH´s commitment to social responsibility and social inclusion has enabled thousands of talented young people with restricted resources, access to quality education and excellence in academia. Underlying all of our academic endeavors is the belief that equal access to educational opportunities is the key to building a just society. The generation of knowledge and research is one of its mission areas and represents approximately ten percent of all national research.
