The National Engineering University was created on February 7, 1983, with the aim of training professionals in the field of engineering and architecture, with the highest scientific, technological and humanistic levels. The UNI, aware of its historical responsibility and in accordance with its vision, mission, principles and deep social vocation, and given the growing demand by young people for engineering careers and architecture, and the impossibility for many of them to be able to sustain their studies in the capital, feasibility studies were conducted in the northern region, with the aim of opening a headquarters. On April 11 2000, is presented the first proposal to establish a headquarters in the north of the country, the report is presented by teachers from the region, this proposal aims to create a headquarters in Esteli and Matagalpa, this last one with the particularity of being totally private. In September 2004, was launched this beautiful human work: "UNI - North" with deep sense of solidarity, within the noblest purposes to accompany the development of the northern region, which had the invaluable support of honorable citizens from Esteli as: Prof. José Miguel Cordoba (RIP), Prof. Olivia Valenzuela and the political authorities from Local Government, represented on the figure of: Lic. Lester Ivan Martinez Huete, departmental political secretary of the Sandinista Front and Francisco Ramon Valenzuela Blandon, Mayor of the Municipality of Estelí.
