From 2000 to 2008, he was the Graduate Program Coordinator in the M.Sc. degree in electronics engineering (Telecommunications). In 2012, he was Director of the Ph.D. program in information and communications technologies at Tecnológico de Monterrey. Currently, he is the Leader of the Research Group in Telecommunications and Networks. His research interests are personal communications, 5G, cognitive radio, MIMO systems, mobility, stochastic modeling, traffic modeling, intrusion/anomaly detection in networks, position location, interference, routing in reconfigurable networks and optimum receiver design.

César Vargas-Rosales is a member of the Mexican Research National System (SNI), level II, since 1997. He is also a member of the Academy of Engineering of Mexico, and a regular member of the Mexican Academy of Sciences (AMC). He is a senior member of the IEEE, the IEEE Communications Society Monterrey Chapter Chair, and the Faculty advisor of the IEEE-HKN Lambda-Rho Chapter at Tecnológico de Monterrey. He was also the Technical Program Chair of the IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference (IEEE WCNC 2011). He is the co-author of the book Position Location Techniques and Applications (Academic Press/Elsevier). His academic leadership at Tecnológico de Monterrey has been awarded with Rómulo Garza Prize twice for research and for technical writing in 2008 and 2009, respectively, and the Teaching and Research Award in 2004, 2012 and 2015.
