Celebrating an anniversary is an opportunity to connect with all of us who are part of the Tec Community.
Eight decades ago, we started in a house with 350 students. Today, we have almost 100,000 and a presence in 20 states of Mexico. Since our beginnings, we have promoted innovation in education, entrepreneurship, and the development of leaders who transform and have a positive impact.
That is why I invite you to celebrate this incredibly special year and to feel proud to be part of Tec.
Live this 80th anniversary intensely.
You are always welcome to this, your home, Tecnológico de Monterrey.
