Students and Faculty

Research

UNAM has excelled in many areas of research and houses many of Mexico's premiere research institutions. In recent years it has attracted students and hired first-rate scientists from all over the world (most notably the ex-Soviet Union, India and USA) and has created a uniquely diverse scientific community.


Scientific research at UNAM is divided between Faculties, Institutes, Centers and Schools, and covers a range of disciplines unmatched in Latin America. Some of the more noted Institutes include: Instituto de Astronomía, Instituto de Biotecnología, Instituto de Ciencias Nucleares, Instituto de Ecología, Instituto de Física, Instituto de Fisiología Celular, Instituto de Geofísica, Instituto de Ingeniería, Instituto de Investigaciones en Materiales, Instituto de Química.


Research Centers tend to focus on multidisciplinary problems particularly relevant to Mexico and the developing world, most notably: Centro de Ciencias Aplicadas y Desarrollo Tecnológico (CCADET) which focuses on connecting the sciences to real-world problems (e.g. optics, nanosciences) and Centro de Investigación en Energía which does world-class research in alternative energies.


All research centers are open to students from anywhere in Mexico, and from anywhere else in the world.


UNAM's scientific output continues to grow at a remarkable pace, despite numerous attempts by the Mexican government to curtail its budget, and the University currently produces 60% of all scientific publications in Mexico.


In the basic sciences, UNAM currently has two Howard Hughes Medical Institute Scholars and endowment from the NIH extramural research program.

Political Activism

UNAM students and professors are regarded around Mexico as very politically aware and sometimes very politically active. The general tendency of the University is left-wing, with several socialist, anarchist, and communist movements emerging from university students and staff. However, the university is very diverse and welcomes other political inclinations. It is the alma mater of several prominent right-wing and neo-liberal politicians such as Carlos Salinas de Gortari or Manuel Gomez Morin. Socialism is a social and economic system (or the political philosophy advocating such a system) in which the economic means of production are owned and controlled collectively by the people. ...

Manuel Gómez Morín Manuel Gómez Morín (February 27, 1897- April 19, 1972) was a Mexican politician. ...


The UNAM is arguably the place with the most active political discussion in Mexico, mostly by faculty members, some which are also influential in Mexican politics. Political debate on national and international issues is very much encouraged, raising the political awareness of the students, providing solid leadership, and nurturing a diversity of ideas, leading in some extent to the creation of several groups supporting both left- and right-wing ideological platforms.
