International Double Degree Program

Since 2016 the Tecnológico de Monterrey has been offering double degree programs at bachelor level in cooperation with the German University Consortium for International Cooperations (DHIK).

As one out of 26 member universities of the German University Consortium for International Cooperations (DHIK), TH Köln is offering an exchange and international double degree program in Automotive Engineering (B.Eng.) in cooperation with Tec de Monterrey.

Exchange semester or double degree?
