Martín created a self-sustaining LED system because his municipality needed more light.

Leaders of Tomorrow is a scholarship program for bright young people who need 100% financial support to study for their professional career. Visit us at


Tecnológico de Monterrey was founded in 1943 thanks to the vision of Mr. Eugenio Garza Sada and a group of businessmen, who formed a civil association called Enseñanza e Investigación Superior, A.C.

The Tec is a private, non-profit, independent university and preparatory school free from political and religious partisanship. The work of Tec de Monterrey and all its campuses is supported by civil associations, made up of a large group of outstanding leaders from all over the country committed to the quality of higher education.

Every year, the directors of these civil associations meet to establish the goals that should guide the major decisions, aimed at the Tecnológico de Monterrey fulfilling its objective of becoming a driver of development for the communities and the country.

Tec de Monterrey has the support of the national community, which participates in the draws that the institution itself organizes to expand the scholarship program and investment in infrastructure.

For its operation as an educational institution, Tec de Monterrey enjoys the status of Escuela Libre Universitaria.

In the following link you can find some of the main historical events that distinguish our university through these 75 years.

Dear Student:

At the Tecnológico de Monterrey Campus Tampico we welcome you to a new semester period at the university and in high school. I am sure that this semester will be very successful and full of satisfaction.

In this new year we begin with new challenges and goals, as you know, the Tecnológico de Monterrey is the first university in Latin America to have the 5-star rating of the QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) ranking, a recognition that is granted to those universities that stand out in the characteristics of Internationalization, Employability, Teaching, Research and Facilities, which consolidates us as one of the best universities in Tampico and invites us to continue consolidating this distinction in the international rankings which will be as a consequence of the work of all the members of the Campus Community.

At Tecnológico de Monterrey we continue to innovate and strengthen our Educational Model, which is the only one of its kind worldwide, and we will continue to focus our efforts on training leaders for the 21st century, “training leaders with an entrepreneurial spirit, with a human sense and internationally competitive”, will be the vision that guides us and ensures the development of the skills of the graduates who will face the challenges of this new century.

If you attend high school in Tampico or the university in Tampico of the Tec de Monterrey, I invite you to print effort, dedication and enthusiasm in the student activities you carry out.

If you have any concerns or suggestions regarding the Campus, do not hesitate to contact me through my email:, or at the General Management office located on the second floor of the CCI.
