The Posgrado Interinstitucional en Ciencia y Tecnología (Inter-graduate Program in Science and Technology) (PICYT) is an educational curriculum at Masters and PhD level, with career-oriented and research-oriented lines, respectively.

It is offered by 7 Public Research Centers, affiliated to CONACYT in 4 cities:

Post-Graduate Inter-institutional Program in Science and Technology

In 1997, the General Directors of seven Public Research Centers signed an agreement with the aim of establishing a common academic program at the graduate level, called PICYT by acronym. Thanks to PICYT, they joined forces and capacities to link each other with the industrial and educational sectors of central México. The 7 centers committed to employing equal priorities in education and to follow a shared mission and vision across the program.

The service that PICYT gives to Society is its contribution to the formation of highly qualified Human Resources through research, technological development and innovation processes. Since the link with the productive/private sector is the fundamental characteristic of the program; in practice, students obtain the corresponding degree, by developing projects for and with industry. Study plans, along with regulations, standards and unique procedures were structured to allow student mobility and their taking courses at any of the participating centers and terminal options.

PICYT has a unique registry with the Ministry of Public Education (SEP), which contributes to teacher mobility: the participation of researchers from the different centers is considered in thematic networks for interinstitutional collaboration; the teaching of courses for students from different locations, co-directing student projects, and inter-center faculty participation as juries at the Research Seminars or during the degree exams solidifies this interinstitutional goal.

The infrastructure of facilities, laboratories, equipment, instruments and bibliographical collections is shared among the centers and academic events are organized across the entire PICyT organization.

General purpose:

To form intellectual capital of an elevated scientific and technological level that can generate; innovate; apply and transmit current, academically and socially relevant knowledge; which will enable advanced development in the productive sector. This new knowledge will flow from all the substantive areas and disciplines found at all of participating CONACYT centers.

Specific goal

To train researchers, scientists and technologists to contribute to the advancement of the different disciplines of the program, both through their practical experiences and with the generation of new knowledge, from a multidisciplinary, critical and reflexive theoretical perspective by recognizing needs, analyzing and improving actual industrial practices.

CIATEC focuses in two areas for generation and/or application of the knowledge from the eight areas of the PICYT Program:

  • Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering
  • Environmental Engineering

Admission profile

Professionals with similar career foundations to the Terminal Option and areas of concentration. The candidate must demonstrate skills including the generation of testable ideas; an interest in research and technological development; initiative, creativity and the aptitude to work on a team. They must also demonstrate an aptitude to interpret, synthesize and deduce information from scientific material.

Graduate profile

The graduate of this program will have professional and academic skills to: generate and apply scientific and technological knowledge for use by society in an optimal, original and creative way. They will demonstrate the ability to stay current with the state-of-the-art in their area of specialty, and the ability to become a leader, capable of proposing and developing innovative scientific and technological solutions for the development of the productive sector, in the area and discipline of their terminal option.
