Industrial development led by the State in the 60's was a thriving flower productive force, and so the city of San Nicolás de los Arroyos, home of the National Organization, was born huge steel mills, chemical, alcohol, energy and so producing the effect of human resource requirements mentioned, being a group of entities characterized intermediate and city residents who began to manage the creation of a higher education institution to cover.
These concerns are reflected in the hand of an illustrious neighbor, Dr. Ricardo Fernandez Irujo, then National Deputy, who is the author of Act No. 15,997, enacted on October 30, 1961, which created the so-called Northern School of the Province of Buenos Aires, today proudly Regional School San Nicolas.
It was the early sixties and were needed metallurgical engineers, mechanical and electrical. Hopeful students, workers and technicians and teachers with vocation ambitions were together creating much-needed professionals, but, even more were planted on virgin soil the concept of university community.
At that time, the goals were simple: the graduation of the first engineers and construction of the building itself. Today turned into the pursuit of academic excellence, the generation of knowledge through research, close ties with the productive sectors and services, continuing education and specialization of its own graduates, all in comfortable housing facilities seeking and functionally, the members of the university community and social, that in an open and participatory management, innovation and reform from becoming permanent desire for change, effective and consistent.
The beginning was in the classrooms of E.N.E.T. No. 1 and No. 6 School St. Nicholas, to find now on the banks of the River Paraná, lion-colored river as the poet immortalized in our own building on a site donated by the National Ports Administration.

Technological Engineer Profile
Technology Engineer is formed in the development of four basic skills: creativity, evaluation, multidisciplinary communication and social responsibility. These capabilities will serve to perform well in offices where the production is projected in manufacturing facilities that make industrial series, in laboratories where it is tested, as well as in the areas of service, production support, education and commercial.
We conclude therefore that the technology engineer in addition to meeting the needs of industry within the scope of its region, facilitates and conducts research, studies and experiences that mean the same technological advancement. At the same time the National Technological University as a full professional, cultural and humanistic, able to deal with a flat top level within the industry and society.
