La filosofía institucional de la Universidad se expresa en la misión, es decir la razón de ser; la visión que es lo que se quiere llegar a ser; los principios; los valores y las políticas, todas ellas fundamentan el quehacer de UMECIT y contribuyen a generar la identidad institucional y cultura corporativa.

EXECUTIVE DECREE 575 OF JULY 21, 2004
"Educating with relevance for the future"
The Neo-Cyberhumanism that is postulated as a renewal of the Curricular Educational Model of UMECIT, continues to place the subject and his experience at the center of the entire process, and around this, seven (7) stars that, when integrated, constitute the "Distinctive Badge" of the philosophy of institutional management, which will reflect the actions of the student, teacher, collaborator, and other actors of the university work based on specific behaviors.
The values promoted by the University are based on responsibility, honesty, respect for others, love and forgiveness, virtues that are immersed in the institutional philosophy, which encourages our students, graduates and the UMECIT community to investigative spirit, initiative, creativity, ethics and social responsibility.
The university shield is designed to reflect the institutional identity of UMECIT. It is made up of its logo, a crown that represents the University as queen of knowledge, which also reflects the wisdom of all the gifts that God gives to man, and finally by the laurel ties that transmit the courage and strength to achieve the victory.
Of the colors used, the red color represents the value and courage of the university community to make its university grow locally and nationally; the blue color it is the sincerity and charity that accompany the daily work; the white color is the faith that the university has in young people and the purity of intention of their thoughts, and works and finally the green color represents the growth of the University and the hope to participate in the construction of a better country.
The University's mascot was born in 2009 and represents the principles and values of all members of the university community. The entrepreneurial spirit, perseverance, the courage to know our strengths and weaknesses to create a learning space conducive to act and take full advantage of the situations we face. The spirit of the great Lion called Bruno will teach us to know our true strength, but also to know how to apply it in our professional future.
The flag consists of a rectangle divided into three colored stripes of green, white and blue. Together with the mascot and the shield it is part of the symbols of the Metropolitan University of Education, Science and Technology.
Green is the color of this beautiful and exuberant nature that surrounds us and to which we are committed to take care of it and live in harmony with it. It also represents the growth of our university and the fertility to produce the good men and women that our country needs. The white is the faith we have in young people and the purity of intention in our thoughts and deeds. And finally the blue, which represents the color of the sky and the sea of our country, the loyalty and trust in our educational community and the faith with which we promote our work.
