We present an analysis regarding Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and their relation with indicators of academic results in bachelor's degree programs offered in state public universities in Mexico. This work is non experimental, cross-sectional, and correlational. The goal is to determine significant relations between variables: educational programs that incorporate telematics in their programs and courses of study, qualifications, withholding rates, completion rates, professional integration, along with graduates and employers satisfaction. The data is formed by 58 universities that presented their Program of Quality Strengthening in Education Institutions (PROFOCIE) projects before Ministry of Public Education (SEP) in 2015; and were processed in the statistic package SPSS, obtaining correlation coefficients. These results showed significant relation to withholding rates and student and graduates satisfaction, even though a significant relation was not found in degree indicators, completion rates, and professional integration.
