CIDYT – Center for Innovation in Design and Technology
The center focuses on training researchers and specialized consultants involved in identifying and answering questions arising out of product design and engineering globalization, intelligent and reconfigurable manufacturing processes, and logistics systems. The center uses its intellectual capital, infrastructure, and strategic alliances with key technology providers and prestigious universities around the globe to obtain the best possible results.
Director: Dr. Ciro A. Rodríguez González
CB FEMSA – FEMSA Center for Biotechnology
The center consists of three main areas: bioprocess engineering, pharmaceutical biotechnology, and food biotechnology. Research is centered not only on the production of knowledge, the publication of scientific articles, and the level of preparation of center employees, but also on the generation of patents, creation of technological solutions for the sector, generation and transfer of technology, and incubation of new technology-based companies.
Director: Dr. Marco A. Rito Palomares
CDA – Latin American and Caribbean Center for Water
The center conducts research and provides consulting for the purpose of generating and disseminating knowledge and providing education regarding the sustainable management and use of water resources in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Director: Dr. Jürgen Mahiknecht
CITES – Center for Health Innovation and Transfer
The center specializes in health research, innovation, and transfer. Its main lines of research include cardiology, cell therapy, hematology and cancer, ophthalmology, nutrition, and health system administration.
Director: Dr. Daniel Humberto Méndez Lozano
Research Projects to transform Mexico
Rogelio Soto and Ernesto Rodríguez Leal, both Ph.D., from our School of Science and Engineering, Monterrey campus, conducted research and development studies on exoskeletons that benefit people with disabilities, and the elderly with reduced or lost natural mobility.
Corneal transplants are unfair, and primarily insufficient. Consequently, the research of Dean Ph.D. Jorge Valdez García and Ph.D. Judith Zavala of the Ophthalmology and Visual Science Research Group at the Medicine School focuses on the creation of new corneas from an existing cornea.
By using Math Educational Apps installed in cell phones, Ph.D. Juan Carlos Olmedo, researcher of the Department of Communication and Digital Arts at Tecnológico de Monterrey, Mexico City campus, has succeeded at improving low-income children´s mathematics scores.
Nanotechnology has endless applications in fields such as industry, medicine, and even in environmental sciences. The investigation of the research professors at Tecnológico de Monterrey focuses on different disciplines.
Projects of research professors at Tecnológico de Monterrey:
Joaquín Oseguera, Department of Mechatronics, Mexico State campus, “Nanostructured Materials”; Nancy Ornelas and Flavio Contreras, “Environmental Nanotechnology Laboratory”, School of Science and Engineering, Monterrey campus; Marco Antonio Rito, School of Biotechnology and Food Science, Monterrey campus, “Device Attachable to Cell Phone to Detect Diabetes in Saliva Samples”; and Ph.D. Alex Elías, School of Science and Engineering, Monterrey campus, “Nanofibers for Manufacturing Surgical Mesh Used in Abdominal Hernia Repair”.
Biotechnology is crucial; therefore, it requires sustainable technological modernization. Ph.D. Silverio García Lara from our School of Science and Engineering, Monterrey campus, and Bram Govaerts of the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT, by its Spanish acronym), collaborate in a project for the Sustainable Modernization of Traditional Agriculture (MasAgro) in Mexico.
Ph.D. Carlos Brambila from our School of Government and Public Transformation, Santa Fe campus, works with rural communities without access to advanced technology in order to increase their agricultural productivity.
Robot Teco is the best example of how mechatronics impacts society. Ph.D. Pedro Ponce from our Graduate School of Engineering, Mexico City campus, developed a robotic application that helps education and health sectors, and improves productivity.
One chapter remains pending in Mexico: safety and justice. For that reason, Ph.D. Pedro Torres, from the School of Government and Public Transformation at Tecnológico de Monterrey, seeks to have an impact by creating knowledge applied to the needs and issues afflicting Mexican institutions dealing with security, safety and justice.
