CETYS Tijuana Inaugurates Most Avant-garde Hybrid Educational Building in the Northwest


CETYS University marks a new chapter in its history with the inauguration of a new Center of Excellence in Competitiveness and Entrepreneurship (CECE) and the Student Life Center on Campus Tijuana. This avant-garde building in northwest Mexico stands as a bridge to the future, facing the challenges and taking advantage of the unique opportunities of the cross-border region.

The primary objective of this new building is to increase competitiveness, encourage the generation of high-impact ventures, and create better opportunities through applied research, training, and consulting on key topics such as competitiveness, economic development, entrepreneurship, and innovation. The Student Life Center is a space for students, both for work and rest. It is made up of a recreational area and a collaborative area. It has an optimal design so that students enjoy student life and can share moments with their classmates; while the collaborative is designed to carry out academic, leadership, creativity, innovation, and collaboration activities.

“This will be a space to live together, relate, and collaborate, a space for student life. Undoubtedly, the CECE will coordinate teachers and their academic bodies with the business community. It will create bridges for binational challenges and opportunities between the Tijuana-San Diego region, thus promoting entrepreneurship with a high positive and significant impact. United for the future, today we celebrate this great project,” said Dr. Fernando León García Rector of the CETYS System at the inauguration ceremony.

The CECE is strategically designed to serve diverse audiences such as entrepreneurs, industries, government, and educational entities, all to promote the development of Baja California and the cross-border region. It is part of the visionary “CETYS of the Future” plan towards 2036 when we will celebrate the 75th anniversary of our institution.

“We gathered with joy and enthusiasm to celebrate the inauguration of the CECE. This building is an integral part of the concept of the campus of the future, it represents a step of academic excellence, innovation, and entrepreneurship. We want to express gratitude and recognition for the patience and trust in this project, which is vital to make this transformative vision of CETYS a reality,” said Mr. Gustavo Vildósola Ramos, President of IENAC, the organization that has sponsored CETYS since its foundation.

The new CECE building is part of the first stage of this CETYS infrastructure master plan, which will continue with the construction of two more buildings like it in each of the following stages, which will be connected.

“What was originally going to be a 500 square meter space was transformed into a five-story, 4,500 square meter space called CECE. It is our responsibility and privilege to develop CETYS, to train and prepare our graduates, all talented and innovative, I invite you to join the advancement of Baja California,” said Federico Cota Trenti, one of the seed donors for the realization of this building.

Representing the student community, the Renewable Energy Engineering student, Carolina Navarro, thanked the support provided, which not only benefits and provides tools to make her dreams come true but also that of all her classmates. “The CECE and the Student Life Center reflect the culture of innovation and leadership that they foster in our daily lives.”

The CECE has five levels that house a wide range of services and spaces, from recreational areas to administrative offices and classrooms for both face-to-face and synchronous virtual classes, as some will be equipped with the latest technology.

With a construction area of ​​4,301 square meters and an investment of 250 million pesos, the CECE is possible thanks to the support of seed donations from the region such as Federico and Cecilia Cota, Jose and Sandra Fimbres, the Jordan Family, Gustavo Vildósola Ramos, Pimsa, the Hernández Hermosillo Family and Santander.
