GET TO KNOW YOUR PROGRAM

Engineering has been one of the great enablers of progress in modern society, allowing humans to transcend their natural limits.. Nowadays, circumstances have changed, with the new challenges arising, such as overpopulation, growing pressures on natural resources, hyper-connected societies, and most importantly, climate change.. Given this panorama, there is a growing need to prepare engineers with a broader and more analytical vision, essential for a modern society based on scientific thinking, fact-based decision making, and critical dialogue.

The Master in Engineering Sciences (MCI) seeks to meet this challenge by training researchers and professionals with a strategic vision to identify and solve important problems and the ability  to generate innovations. The MCI degree confers broad and cross-disciplinary qualities, but also allows students to specialize in one of the following areas:


  • Clean energy and sustainable water use 
  • Mechatronics and advanced manufacturing, including robotics and control
  • Telecommunication

Industrial Engineering

 


The general objective of this program is to train professionals as agents of change for the industrial and academic sectors who are capable of doing applied research, technological development and technology transfer, in the areas of engineering sciences.

  • The program is linked to different fields of society, through projects with national and international companies.
  • Research professors that belong to Mexico’s National System of Researchers (SNI, Spanish).
  •  An environment of innovation and entrepreneurship to assist and solve major engineering problems.
  • Tecnológico de Monterrey holds accreditations such as: SACS*, CIEES, SEP, and CONACYT**

* Tecnológico de Monterrey is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees.
