About our Campus
Historia del Campus
Mensaje del Director



At the Tecnológico de Monterrey, we are committed to forming human beings willing to better themselves to benefit others, knowing that education improves people’s lives. This is why leadership, innovation, and entrepreneurship for thriving are at the core of our renewed vision.

With a history stretching over four decades in Western Mexico, we are one of Guadalajara’s best universities. Our academic offering includes PrepaTec, in both bicultural and multicultural modalities, undergraduate programs in the areas of Ambiente Construido (Conscious Urban Design), social sciences, creative studies, engineering, business, health, and continuing education and postgraduate programs.

Our students have the support of an entire community that provides them with personalized services, always with the goal of meeting their needs. They also have guidance from professors and mentors, and at PrepaTec, tutors who inspire, motivate, and contribute to making their experience a memorable one.

We have been offering classes in Guadalajara since 1991. Our campus is located on the east side of Zapopan on over 90 acres that are home to our classrooms, laboratories, conference center and Innovative Entrepreneurship Center, as well as our Schools of Medicine and Health Sciences, Architecture Ecosystem, Art and Design, library, athletic and cultural areas, research centers and student support.

All this provides our students with the ideal environment for learning at one of the best universities in Guadalajara, and the opportunity to complement their academic formation with cultural, athletic, leadership, entrepreneurial, and human-focused activities.

We also have our Center for the Acknowledgement of Human Dignity, which promotes human rights and a culture of gender equality. The VR Zone offers our students the ability to experience immersive learning with virtual reality technology, and the Borregos E-Sports Arena, which is the first of its kind in Mexico, allows its visitors to know and practice this emerging world.

We promote activities related to technological advances and social, ethical, and civic commitments. Our Guadalajara Campus is the headquarters for our Artificial Intelligence Hub, which aims to promote the ethical use of these technologies and Mexico’s economic and social development.

Our student body is made up of more than 8,000 students from across the country and around 600 students who come from abroad, making us an attraction for national and global academic talent. This diversity allows us to offer a multicultural learning environment at the high school, undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

One of the latest transformations at Tec de Monterrey was the launch of our Tec21 educational model, which brings real-life challenges into the classroom, evidence of our renewed commitment to education and our goal of being one of the best universities in Guadalajara and Mexico.

We are an institution dedicated to creating wellbeing and opportunity for all, working towards unity as a country and society, promoting human-centered leadership initiatives, applied research, connection to community, and a campus life that enriches our students’ academic experience, their contribution to the world, and their human flourishing.
