. . . . I chose the Metropolitan University of Mexico over Monterrey Tech, because I thought it was a private institution. I may be right there, but it probably doesn't have the wide outreach that Monterrey Tech has.
The UAM is a government university located in Mexico City, with several branches. Here's a little bit more information I found:
"The Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana (UAM) was founded in 1974 and is the third largest public university in Mexico. The UAM has four separate campuses located in different boroughs of Mexico City."
And from Wikipedia: The Metropolitan Autonomous University (Spanish language: Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana or UAM) is a public university located in Mexico City, Mexico. It has four separate campuses located in different boroughs of the Federal District:
* UAM Azcapotzalco, located in the Azcapotzalco area, Northern Mexico City
* UAM Iztapalapa, located in the Iztapalapa area, Eastern Mexico City
* UAM Cuajimalpa, located in Cuajimalpa area, Western Mexico City
* UAM Xochimilco, located in the Xochimilco area, Southern Mexico City.
The creation of a fifth campus in the municipality of Lerma, State of Mexico, has been approved, and it is under construction (as of Jan 2011).
UAM Rectoría is the main office, and it is located in the south of the city, near Xochimilco, at the street Canal de Miramontes.
