The Technological Universities emerged in Mexico in 1991 as decentralized public organisms of the state governments. The educational model is based on six attributes, which frame and guide curricular development and its application; as in the linking function.
Quality understood as:
The culture of evaluation, both internal and external. In which each of the elements related to the educational process is periodically examined: study plans and programs, teaching methods, educational materials, teaching staff, infrastructure and equipment, school performance, and administrative performance, which must be evaluated with criteria national and international and with the participation of peers, through collegiate, objective and transparent evaluation.
Technological Universities are structured to work in continuous communication and feedback with the social and economic environments. Its strength lies largely in its ability to link with the productive sector since the instrumentation of careers is determined according to the requirements of the productive nuclei of the environment. The orientation of the studies towards the solution of socio-economic problems outside the walls ensures, from the early stages of the career, a rapprochement with the labor market. For this, from the moment of its creation and in order to ensure the relevance of the educational programs, the Technological Universities invite business managers and public officials to share their lines of work and to participate in the creation of proposals of the appropriate professional profiles.
