If you are interested in participating in a project on any of these lines of research, please contact us so we can connect you with the professor in charge of your particular area of interest. We typically find places for students based ON DEMAND; however, some professor have already listed their specific projects for students to review directly.

How to Apply

  • If you are applying as an exchange student, then you first need to be nominated by your university. If you are an independent student go to APPLY NOW and fill out the Application for Admission.
  • Fill out the research project application here   

and submit the following requirements:

  1. A letter of recommendation from a professor or staff member from the home university.
  2. Updated resume in English or Spanish depending on the language in which you want to do your project.
  3. Letter of intention explaining the reasons why you would like to participate on a research project in Mexico.

Once you complete these steps, a Research Project Advisor will evaluate your profile and contact you to start your placement.

Research Project Placement
You will receive information about different projects that fit your profile and interests. Also, interviews with project managers may be required before making an offer.
Keep in mind that this process may take several weeks and that the final placement decision will be made by the department where the project takes place.  

*Important: Receiving admission to Tec de Monterrey is different than applying for a research project. You will follow a separate evaluation process to be considered for a project.
 ** Not having an advanced level of Spanish is not a limitation to participate in the program; however, have in mind that, because of their nature, some projects may require an intermediate or advance level of Spanish, therefore limiting your placement options.
