History


The history of Maritime Education in Mexico is extensive and rich in tradition. Its origins can be traced back to 1880 when the 'Marine School for the Commerce Navy' was founded in Mazatlan, Sinaloa. This institution, now known as 'Cap. Alt. Antonio Gómez Maqueo,' changed the location of its original facilities and is on the brink of celebrating the 143rd anniversary of its foundation. In 1919, the 'Commerce and Marine School of Veracruz' was inaugurated in the city and port of Veracruz. Similar to the Mazatlan campus, it changed the location of its original facilities and currently bears the name of its founder, 'Cap. Alt. Fernando Siliceo y Torres.' This campus, with a rich tradition, commemorates 104 years of its foundation this year.
