By its nature, the DCI is multidisciplinary, covering four areas of knowledge (biotechnology, mechatronics, industrial engineering and environmental systems) that have been selected among the research lines with greater strength within the Division of Engineering and Architecture. These areas interact with each other through projects, centers and research chairs
The areas of knowledge serve as a crucible for the definition of the research lines of the DCI Program:Mechatronics and Advanced Manufacturing Mechatronics and Advanced Manufacturing comprises the analysis and synthesis of complex systems in which multiple disciplines interact. The Mechatronics and Advanced Manufacturing line responds to the need to train human resources for research, with a high level of preparation in the disciplines of Automation, Mechanics and Electronics.
Clean Energies and Sustainable Use of Water Clean Energy and Sustainable Use of Water responds to global needs by evolving operational approaches, from treatments for pollution control to the concept of corporate social responsibility. Indicates the relevance that in relation to the economic and social spheres has the use of natural resources with an ecosystemic approach, the care of the physical environment and the protection of the health of the population, all with a focus and vision of sustainability.
Industrial engineer Industrial Engineering is related to the increase of competitiveness worldwide and represents one of the greatest challenges of any nation, particularly its institutions and companies who will have to face a continuous process of increased productivity, efficient use of resources and generation of courage to face the growing competition. Research at the frontier of knowledge of the Industrial Engineering line contributes to the search, development and implementation of new ways of operating and improving operational and administrative processes mainly through the development of new and innovative models of decision making.
Telecommunications (T) Telecommunications contributes with solutions to fundamental problems in networks and systems that transport information and that allow the design of platforms that drive the digital industry of the future and technologies such as IoT, Smart Cities, Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), smart-grid, Big-Data, e-health, 5G, cognitive radio, white spaces, location systems, and sensors, to improve the quality of life of 21st century society. Research is developed to optimize and stochastically model the essential understanding of the fundamental performance in the areas of wireless communications and networks, in the treatment of signals and information, in the convergence between optical communication networks and wireless networks, vehicular communications, photonic crystals, aspects of the levels of the physical layer, connectivity, modulation, reconfigurable network architecture, sensors, and their applications.AdvantageTeachers

Recognition of official validity of the Secretariat of Public Education of Mexico.Educational model
The active participation of students in their professional and personal education is promoted through individual and collaborative learning. This model also allows the student to build their knowledge with the guidance of expert teachers in their professional field and in teaching.I direct toThe Doctorate in Engineering Sciences is aimed at:Candidates with proven academic capacity, creativity, motivation and potential to carry out research that manifests itself in original works that contribute to enrich the field of technology.
This program has an adequate selection mechanism for applicants that considers the relevant aspects to identify the academic profile, such as the research necessary for an outstanding performance.The candidate to enter the doctorate must have an excellent academic background, and have a vocation as a researcher in any of the fields of knowledge promoted by the doctoral program. The admission process is designed to ensure the above, emphasizing the need to have the skills and potential for research. During the admission process, the financial support needed by the student and the research topic are reviewed. All the above with the purpose of raising the chances of success of the student and the research line.goalsThe Doctorate in Engineering Sciences aims to:To train independent researchers, with skills, knowledge and skills to identify opportunities, develop and direct original research projects at the frontier of knowledge.
Disseminate the results of such investigations and apply the knowledge generated in the country's technological development. To be recognized as a high impact engineering program in the productive, educational-academic and social sectors of the country.Lines of investigationState of Mexico CampusMechatronics and Advanced Manufacturing
