XHUPC-FM, also known as El Politécnico en Radio, is a radio station located in Mexico City, operated by the Superior School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering (ESIME) Culhuacán, one of the schools of the Instituto Politécnico Nacional.


XHUPC-FM traces its roots to 1984, when it was conceived as a teaching and instructional tool for students in the communications and electrical engineering programs. At that time, the IPN applied to the SCT in order to obtain a permit for the station and to begin intermittent operations on 95.7 MHz.

On September 5, 1994, XHUPC signed on the air offering programming 13 hours a day, five days a week. In 1995, it added weekend programs, and 1997 saw XHUPC move to 24-hour operation.


XHUPC carries a varied format including music, IPN-specific news ("Infopolitécnico"), and cultural programming.
