I am very pleased to recommend Dr. Tristan and the IEIA for their  seriousness and continuous availability to participate in our research  project.


Technical certifications

Guadalupe has finished technical studies in office competencies  and Patricia obtained a technical diploma on graphic design.



Martin is a technician who has completed a course on production of rabbits at the Centro Nacional de Cunicultura (Irapuato, Mexico). The aim of this course was to promote the production of healthy food, being this one of the interest areas of the ISF, which provided a grant for the course, travel, accommodation and other expenses. In addition, the project was supported due to its social interest, given the fact that it was the first time he has obtained a technical certification, it was a truly rewarding and success experience in his life.

Undergraduate stages
