The Mexican Association of Engineering, Science and Environmental Management, is a non-profit technical and scientific civil association, which arose out of the need to constitute a frame of reference for the best technologies and leadership on the country's environmental issues.

It brings together specialists, academics, professionals, companies and students from areas related to engineering and environmental sciences.

AMICA is the Mexican chapter of the Inter-American Association of Sanitary and Environmental Engineering AIDIS, continuing the commitment assumed by its members in 1948.

AMICA National Congress

The Association is committed to holding the National Congress of Engineering, Science and Environmental Management every two years, which allows us to learn about the challenges Mexico faces in environmental matters and progress in meeting international sustainable development goals.
