The Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education, Puebla Campus (in Spanish: Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey, Campus Puebla) commonly shortened as Tecnológico de Monterrey, Campus Puebla or ITESM Campus Puebla, is a campus of the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education private university system in Puebla, Mexico.

It was built on 25 hectares (62 acres) donated by the state government of Puebla and delivers high school, undergraduate and graduate courses.[1] It is located in the fastest growing zone of the city, the Angelopolis Zone.

The high School has 3 different programs: the Bilingual,The Multicultural and the International Program, following the guidelines of the IB. The higher studies programs focus mainly in the Engineering and Natural Sciences Areas, although it has also a Business school. Currently, the campus enrolls about 5000 students, both undergraduate and postgraduate.

As with all of the ITESM campuses around Mexico, the University's mascots are the Borregos Salvajes. Its American Football team now competes in the Premier League of the CONADEIP. The football stadium they use is named "El Hoyo Azul" (The Blue Hole).

Due to the strong presence of Universities in Puebla City, this campus had to invest a lot of money to out stand as a great academic option. Its campus is one of the most modern of all the ITESM system campuses. It currently includes buildings for students, a technological park, as well as installations for the practice of various sports.


Our mission is to prepare upstanding, ethical individuals with a humanistic outlook, who are internationally competitive in their professional fields, and become committed to the economic, political, social, and cultural development of their communities and to the sustainable use of natural resources.

Through our educational, research and development programs, we prepare students and transfer knowledge:

  • To promote businesses’ international competitiveness based on knowledge, innovation, technological and sustainable development.
  • To develop business management models capable of competing in a global economy.
  • To create, implement and transfer business incubator models and networks in order to contribute to the creation of companies.
  • To collaborate in professionalizing public administration; and analyzing and proposing public policies for the development of Mexico.
  • To contribute to the community’s sustainable development with innovative models and systems for its educational, social, economic and political advancement.


By 2015,the Monterrey Institute of Technology will be the most widely recognized educational institution in Latin America due to the leadership exercised by its alumni in the private, public, and social sectors, and to the research and technological development it carries out to promote a knowledge-based economy, generate management and business incubator models, improve public administration and public policies, and create innovative models and systems for the sustainable development of the community.

The field of architecture answers the space requirements which involve not only functional, but also social, cultural, aesthetic, economic and, in a very important way, ecological issues. Architecture involves a commitment that goes beyond the proper resolution of individual buildings but also resolves issues in the broader context of cities and societies.

Social sciences and humanities[edit]

The humanities and social sciences allow critical analysis of social and cultural processes that are directly related to the configuration of the world. Through the study of human behavior and institutions which shape, empower and provide the logic of operations for public decision-making in international contexts, and of the study of language within literary and social events, the Social Science and Humanities Professional proposes alternatives to problems of social character.

The Technology-Based Business Incubator Network drives the transformation of highly innovative ideas and projects into high value-added companies applying new knowledge in advanced sectors such as agrobiotechnology, biotechnology, information technology development, the pharmaceutical industry, biomedical engineering, energy, the aerospace industry, and the automotive industry. In addition, the Tecnológico de Monterrey has a Social Enterprise Incubator Network.

Business accelerators Business accelerators grow and offer international projection to small and medium-sized companies, both technology and innovation-based, with the aim of generating regional and national welfare and sustainability. They drive the transformation of companies with high market potential into new sustainable businesses in the biotechnology and health, design and manufacturing, information technology and telecommunications, and energy and sustainable development fields, to name a few.

Technology parks[edit]

Technology parks are sites conducive to capitalizing the knowledge generated at universities and transforming it into economic and social wealth, as well as into regional development. They are effective tools for knowledge transfer and for the creation and attraction of competitive enterprises.

Establishing and operating technology parks is a cornerstone of the innovation system of the Tecnológico de Monterrey’s R&D area. The following four models served as starting points for the establishment of these parks:

Parks for high value job development, enabling students and alumni to be employed in high value activities.

Centers for technology transfer and technology-based companies’ acceleration and landing, paving the way for the marketing and transfer of Tecnológico de Monterrey and regional technologies to national and international high value companies.

Centers for the research and establishment of technology-based companies positioning the Tecnológico de Monterrey internationally on the strength of these activities.

Innovation and technology parks, which will contribute to transforming the regional economy.

The Tecnologico de Monterrey’s role varies greatly in establishing and operating the aforementioned park models. While in some cases the institution develops the project from inception to delivery, in others, it performs an affiliate or consulting function.

Puebla's Technologic Park was recently opened. It formally started operations in January 2011.
