The Tangier Med Group will, through its Foundation, create a third campus called “1337 MED”, which will open its doors starting autumn 2021 in the Tetouan Shore area of activity, near Cabo Negro. A result of a partnership with the Mohammed VI Polytechnic University (UM6P), the “1337 MED” campus, third of its kind after those located in Khouribga and Benguerir, will offer training in computer development and coding free of charge, accessible to all, without diploma or computer skills prerequisite, open 24/7, said a press release from the Tangier Med Special Agency (TMSA). Equipped with 150 positions, 1337 MED will increase its capacity to 210 positions starting 2023, with the ambition of training nearly 650 students. The same source noted that Tangier Med is offering this unprecedented training of excellence and will also pay for student grants, in order to cover their costs of accommodation. As part of this partnership, the UM6P will provide the technical and educational support necessary for the launch and sustainable management of this new branch of the 1337 Schools. Young people in the region will thus benefit from high-level training and access to an international network of computer developers.
