The Superior School of Computer Sciences (in Spanish: Escuela Superior de Cómputo or ESCOM) is a superior school of the National Polytechnic Institute[3] located in Mexico City, Mexico. Its students pursue the bachelor's degree in computer engineering[3] with one major: computer systems.[3] The curriculum is designed to last for four years.

The school has a faculty mostly with postgraduate studies,[3] and there is a growing number of teachers with doctoral studies.


The school began classes on 27 September 1993 with 5 classrooms provided by the Superior School of Engineering and Architecture (ESIA) Zacatenco, on the third floor, building 10. Two of them worked as classrooms, one as a library, one as administrative area, and the other as school management. Similarly, the Superior School of Engineering and Architecture provided two spaces in the administrative area attached to the building 10, which were used as computer rooms.[1]

From June 30th, 2013 to July 4th, 2013, the ESCOM participated for first time in the ACM ICPC World Finals. The team consisted of Christian Hernandez, Ethan Jimenez, and Jair Ramirez.[5]
