It took a fair bit of joint planning and preparation of existing training materials, but now ARBURG and the prestigious Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (Tec de Monterrey) can offer academic training and further education in Mexico, providing those interested in the local plastics industry with sound knowledge in a practice-oriented and concise manner. The four-month course ends with a final project and the presentation of a diploma to the graduates. The first course had 16 participants and started with an opening ceremony on 7 July 2023.

During the official opening ceremony, Edgar Calderón, ARBURGs Commercial Manager, emphasised in his speech: "As one of the leading manufacturers of plastic injection moulding machines, we know how important it is to have highly qualified personnel in our companies. This diploma course represents our commitment to contribute to the growth and development of this industry in our country and to always remain at the forefront."
Calderón went on to say that technological development always had to keep pace with the constant growth and development of the most important resource of companies: their employees. He thanked this first cohort of students for their trust and congratulated them on this important step in their professional training. The event was also attended by officials from Tec de Monterrey. Javier Carreño, who represented the institution as Academic Coordinator, gave an overview of the scope and content of the course. Juan Ossio, Experience and Operations Coordinator at Tec de Monterrey, then gave the official starting signal for the course to begin. The group started the first module of the comprehensive course programme immediately afterwards.
'Diplomado': For everyone in the plastics industry
Whether you are an ARBURG customer or not, if you are an engineer or manager and want to gain a sound overview of plastics and their processing, the 'diplomado' is the perfect choice. Planning, technology and project implementation can be viewed from new, exciting angles, and opportunities and ideas for the future can be developed. The goal is to produce graduates who will shape the future of the Mexican plastics industry. This is why ARBURGs course is also aimed without restriction at anyone involved in plastics. The first students include employees from companies in different parts of the country: Querétaro, Guanajuato, Mexico City and the State of Mexico.
