The Technological High School Program with International Profile (BTPI), is a flexible educative program designed under the competency profile to comprehend the national and international environment in which the student can select the learning units from the propaedeutic areas between two exits: Mechatronics or Science of the Materials. These generate a greater number of options after the conclusion of the program because the student can continue with higher studies (college higher technician or bachelor) or well, integrate as a technician from the job market.

To develop the international profile in the BTPI, during the complete educative program, they perform activities such as academic exchanges, semiannual stays in national and international institutions, learning foreign languages, intercultural fairs, observation visits or familiarization to transnational businesses among others.
