Campus Monterrey

  • Mechatronics and Advanced Manufacturing
    The line of research in Mechatronics and Advanced Manufacturing has to do with the analysis and integration of complex systems involving the interaction of multiple disciplines. This line of research responds to the need to prepare researchers with a high level of expertise in Automation, Mechanics, and Electronics.
  • Clean Energies and Sustainable Use of Water 
    The line of research in Clean Energies and Sustainable Use of Water responds to the global need to evolve the focus of operations ranging from treatments for the control of contamination to the concepts of corporate social responsibility. It takes into account the relevance to the economic and social spheres, of use of natural resources with an eco-systemic focus, the care of the physical environment, and the protection of public health, always emphasizing the viewpoint of sustainability.
  • Industrial Engineering 
    Industrial Engineering is concerned with the increase in competitiveness on a global scale, which is a major challenge for all nations, in particular, for their institutions and businesses that will need to constantly increase productivity, efficient use of resources, and creation of value to remain competitive. The line of research in Industrial Engineering addresses the search for and the development and implementation of new ways to operate and improve operational and administrative processes, by means of the development of new and innovative decision making models. 
  • Telecommunications 
    The line of research in Telecommunications contributes solutions to fundamental problems related to networks and systems that transport Information. These solutions permit the design of platforms that propel the digital industry of the future and technologies like the Internet of Things, Intelligent Cities, Smart Transportation Systems, Smart-grid, Big-Data, e-health, 5G, cognitive radio, white spaces, location systems, and sensors to improve the quality of life in the 21st century. Research is carried out to optimize and model, stochastically, the essential comprehension of the fundamental performance of wireless communications and networks, the treatment of signals and Information, the merging of optical and wireless networks, vehicular communications, photonic crystals, aspects of the physical layer, connectivity, modulation, reconfigurable network architecture, sensors, and their applications.
