Ingeniería. Investigación y Tecnología is an arbitrated magazine which purpose is to spread original and unpublished information and knowledge related to all fields of engineering. It provides a forum for professors researchers and students from all over the world. This magazine includes articles in Spanish and English, as well as four sections which next will be explained.

Ingeniería en México y en el mundo. Reviews and discussion linked to progress evolution and development of engineering in world wide bases. With aspects of technical, scientific, and epistemological nature.

Estudios e investigaciones recientes. Innovative articles with a methodological, analytical, numerical and experimental approach, of scientific research and currently technological development.

Ingeniería y sociedad. Analysis and discussion of social and professional issues related explicitly to engineer.

Educación en ingeniería. Articles related to the activity and professional experience that complement the development of research on engineering but at the same time are of utility for the strengthening of the teaching.
