Instituto Tecnologico de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (ITESM) campus AGS

OWASP Day Mexico 2010 will be taking place at the Tecnologico de Monterrey (ITESM) University at Aguascalientes, Mexico.

Tecnológico de Monterrey is a multi-campus university system with academic centers in different regions of the country.

The prestige that Tecnológico de Monterrey attained from the start, not only for its academic standards but also for the culture of entrepreneurship, hard work, efficiency and responsibility it seeks to instill in its students, has motivated alumni from different regions of the country to promote the establishment of Tecnológico de Monterrey campuses in their home cities.

This has given Tecnológico de Monterrey a perception of the different needs of each region and the capacity to prepare professionals who can meet them, without leaving their local environment. In addition, since Tecnológico de Monterrey is a nation-wide system, it has accepted the responsibility to respond to the important challenges facing the country.

Many Tecnológico de Monterrey alumni are directors of successful companies in Mexico and Latin America. There are also more and more graduates in important positions in government and public administration
