The Technological University of Campeche (UTCAM) understands the challenges posed by the Mexican business environment, as well as the specific difficulties companies can encounter in the oil and gas industry, but most of all, the institution sees an opportunity to help toward the success of the Energy Reform. The institution of education’s latest expansion, UTCAM USA, aims to become an international firm that brings integrated solutions to foreign firms entering Mexico when it comes to complying with the new regulations that stem from the reform. The institution will seek to provide services ranging from the processing of government paperwork, contract management, workforce solutions, and maritime law attorneys. Moreover, the services offered by the institution also seek to reinforce the culture surrounding work safety and health and environmental protection, in line with PEMEX’s SSPA requirements.

As companies entering the market put a lot of weight on transparency, UTCAM believes it boasts a certain advantage, being an educational institute. Over the years, the institution has gained experience in the Mexican market that confers it capabilities to advise and support foreign companies entering Mexico. The institution was established in 1997 in Ciudad del Carmen, Campeche.

In 2005, thanks to an excellent relationship with the state government and PEMEX, the institution of higher education was able to expand into the corporate sector, operating as a reliable service supplier for the NOC. This ensures a high quality of teaching at the university, as the institution understands the nuances and current challenges of the industry, and in fact, many its graduates go on to work with PEMEX. The institution already has a strong presence in Mexico, having stretched its presence throughout the country to the cities of Reynosa in Tamaulipas, Poza Rica in Veracruz, and Villahermosa in Tabasco, and it has now engaged in a cross-border expansion, opening a university in The Woodlands, Texas.
