The History of Research
at Tec de Monterrey

Can cancer be cured? Can our rivers and seas be kept clear of plastic waste? Can global warming be slowed down? We turn to science for the answer to concerns like these because that is what research does: solve problems.

Tec de Monterrey’s original mission to promote education and help further Mexico’s development has been transformed throughout its history in alignment with its goals. One of the strategies that has made the most significant contributions in this regard is the research platform that was launched several decades ago.

Through the collective collaboration of its research groups, centers, interdisciplinary institutes, and Core Labs, Tec has taken steps towards improving people’s lives and has become the most robust, integrated, and interconnected applied-research ecosystem in Latin America.

On Tec de Monterrey’s 80th anniversary, we highlight its most important milestones in scientific research.
