Abstract The world has become dependent on information,
technology, and telecommunications. Better known as Informa-
tion Technology and Telecommunications (IT), a term that en-
compasses the fields of Electrical and Computer Engineering
and Computer Science. Increasingly, IT is an effective indicator
that can measure the difference between developed and develop-
ing 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.
Index Terms Backbone, Centers of Excellence, Information
Technology and Telecommunications.
