Graduates of Industrial Engineering will demonstrate the following during the first few years after graduation, the ability…


PEO # 1: Career

…to work as professionals within engineering or related areas, and/or participate in research and development in science, engineering, technology and entrepreneurship.

PEO # 2: Practice

…practice Industrial Engineering in the design, improvement or implementation of organizational processes, establishing an effective communication and a meaningful contribution to team efforts and workplace goals.

PEO # 3: Continuous Learning

…to expand continuously their skill-set and knowledge, if required, through independent study or high-level training such as professional certifications or graduate studies.

PEO # 4: Leadership & Professional Engagement

…to achieve and maintain positions of influence in their organizations, from which they demonstrate a strong social commitment starting with the assessment of the impacts derived of their decisions.

As a graduate from the Bachelor of Industrial Engineering you will be able to analyze, predict, and design production processes for goods and services. For this, you will optimize systems composed of human resources, materials, information, equipment, and energy, and thus contribute to cost effectiveness, competitiveness, and sustainability of global organizations that benefit society.

Once you have finished your study program, you will have a bachelor´s degree in addition to a licenciatura degree. Therefore, your studies will be recognized worldwide.
