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.
