Objectives and outcomes

Competences to be acquired

The qualification of the Undergraduate Program in Industrial Engineering includes the entry requirements of a master's degree in Industrial Engineering, associated with the profession of industrial engineer described in section 4.2.2 of Ministerial order CIN/311/2009, of 9 February regarding the guidelines of the master's degree (Ministerial order CIN/351/2009). This program makes our graduates highly capable of handling numerous tasks in the field of industrial engineering.

An Undergraduate Program in Industrial Engineering will help students acquire the following competences:

Understanding and applying scientific knowledge (mathematics, physics and chemistry) and basic technical knowledge (information technology, graphic expression, mechanics, electricity and materials) necessary for the practice of industrial engineering

Problem-solving, decision-making, creativity and critical thinking

Developing, programming and applying analytical and numerical methods to elaborate mathematical models in the field of industrial engineering

Carrying out measurements, calculations, evaluations, assessments, advanced reports, research studies, work plans and other similar tasks

Developing components, systems, processes and experiments to obtain the requirements established

Carrying out projects in the field of industrial engineering

Students will also be able to:

Communicate efficiently, both orally and in writing, transmit knowledge, skills and abilities in the field of industrial engineering

Organize and plan in companies and other institutions and organizations

Assess the negative impacts resulting from deficient application of industrial engineering to better understand its importance in society, economy and sustainability

Analyze and appreciate the societal and environmental impact of technical solutions

Students will acquire knowledge in the fields of mechanical, electrical and energy engineering, systems and construction of materials, chemistry, design and production, the environment, organizing and management of projects and companies.

This knowledge, in addition to acquiring cross-curricular skills, is designed to form well-rounded professionals with an ethical commitment to society. Students will be able to solve and promote technological challenges in the industrial sector, both in big companies and in small and medium-sized businesses.
