• Mission

    IQS School of Engineering

The IQS mission statement can be found on a university-wide document that was approved and issued in 1998. The IQS School of Engineering has the following mission:

Our mission is to provide comprehensive education for people, equipping them with the attitudes, knowledge, and skills that enable and inspire them in their personal and professional growth. This education takes place under criteria of excellence and justice, based on deeply held values of Christian ethics and in complete agreement with the IQS mission.

Our essential goal is to take students who have finished their secondary education and who show the potential and dedication necessary for scientific and technical studies and educate them through advanced studies in engineering and experimental sciences.

IQS views research and experimental work as fundamental tools for providing a modern and innovative university education.


Following the Jesuit tradition, we believe that developing the ability to learn is essential for our students' growth. This is based on the four pillars: learning to know and how to learn, learning how to do, learning how to be, and learning how to live together.

We provide our students with experiences that enhance their interpersonal and analytical skills: oral and written communication, teamwork, critical thinking, problem solving, and the use of cutting-edge engineering equipment and computer applications.

We design our programmes so that our graduates receive a comprehensive, interdisciplinary education, with special emphasis on both the basic sciences and applied technologies, as well as a generalist approach that includes the social and economic impacts of engineering and experimental sciences.

We are committed to employing faculty worthy of recognition due to their knowledge and experience, their dedication to education, and their devotion to personalised services for students.

Students conduct intense experimental and laboratory work, which allows them to develop a highly independent capacity for learning. Cooperative education with industries and student internships are mandatory in all our programmes.


Research and Technical consultancy services

Research is an essential activity in order to provide quality teaching, promote critical thinking, and contribute to the advancement of knowledge. We therefore stimulate and provide incentives for our faculty to carry out research, in particular in the interdisciplinary fields for which IQS has achieved great renown. Our doctoral studies are an ideal way for our students who have shown themselves capable and dedicated to investigation to build on their research capacities.

We believe that Technical Consultancy Services are a desirable activity to improve education and to keep our faculty up-to-date with the needs of industry. Offering these services stimulates innovation and strengthens the relationship with many industries and industrial sectors, while also contributing to societal progress.
