Their concepts crystallized in 1936, thanks to Senator Juan de Dios Batiz and President Lazaro Cardenas del Rio, who sought to fulfill the Mexican revolution postulates concerning education, thus giving birth to a solid house of study: the Instituto Politecnico Nacional (IPN).
At present the IPN offers technical high school programs, as well as undergraduate and graduate programs. It also has several research centers throughout the country. High school programs are divided into three main areas of knowledge: Engineering, mathematical and physical Sciences (ten schools); administrative and social sciences (four schools), and medical and biological sciences (two schools).
At undergraduate level it has the following areas: Engineering, mathematical and physical sciences, including computer, physics and mathematics, engineering and architecture (three), electricity and mechanical engineering (four), chemical engineering and extractive industries and textile engineering; Administrative and social sciences, including administration and commerce (two), and economy and tourism; Medical and biological sciences, including schools in biological sciences, homeopathic medicine, obstetrics and nursing, and medicine; Interdisciplinary studies, including biotechnology, engineering, administration and social sciences, engineering and advanced technologies, and health sciences.
