About

Founded in 1936, the Instituto Politécnico Nacional (National Polytechnic Institute, IPN) is the most important public technological higher education center in Mexico. Academic quality is one of our main distinctions: more than 95% of our students are trained in an educational program at a quality level recognized by accrediting agencies. The Institute was founded on the premise of supporting the country’s industrialization and national development process, as well as to offer education opportunities to various social sectors, especially the less favored. In 2004, the IPN undertook a process of institutional transformation to renew its mission. With over 73 years of existence, its role in higher education, science and technology, and the quality of services it provides, has propelled the Institute to become a national leader in technological education with broad public recognition. During the 70th anniversary of its foundation, the Institute reaffirmed its hard-earned place in the heart of Mexico with the unveiling of an allusive plaque in the Senate, the inscription of the name of the Instituto Politécnico Nacional in gold letters in the Honor’s Wall of the Lounge of the Plenary Room of the House of Representatives, and at the forefront of the IV Legislative Assembly of the Federal District.
