The Technological University of León began its operations on September 26, 1995, with the inauguration of courses carried out by C. Vicente Fox Quesada, Constitutional Governor of the State of Guanajuato, in the presence of high personalities from the Federal, State, Municipal, and the University Community.

The UTL had its origin in the request that the León Business Coordinating Council (an organization that groups 10 business chambers of the State) made to Dr. Ernesto Zedillo Ponce de León, then head of the Ministry of Public Education, through a document dated October 14, 1993, in which they expressed the need for a Center for Higher Education and Technological Professional Training, which would be linked to the productive apparatus of the town: "For this reason and, having analyzed and evaluated the requirements that In the educational field we require in Guanajuato, we have detected the need to create an educational center that specializes in the professional training of middle managers of companies.

For the creation of the Technological University of León, the Government of the State of Guanajuato and the Secretariat of Public Education assigned in July 1994 a coordination agreement, which was made official by means of Government Decree No. 108, given at the residence of the Executive Power of the State on December 8, 1994, and signed by the Governor of the State, Eng. Carlos Medina Plascencia (published in the Official Gazette of the Government of the State of Guanajuato No. 98 on December 9, 1994). Since then the Decree gives life to the UTL and indicates the commitment to contribute to each instance of Government.
