The world has become dependent on information, technology, and telecommunications. Better known as Information Technology and Telecommunications (IT), a term that encompasses the fields of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Computer Science. Increasingly, IT is an effective indicator that can measure the difference between developed and developing nations. The competitiveness and economic growth of a nation are directly related to the incorporation of clear policies on IT. It requires a substantial restructuring of the initiatives and programs implemented in attempts to generate an adequate base for development of science and technology. To achieve this, it is important to revise the education of human technical and scientific resources.
