PEO #1: Career Development

Working as professionals in engineering and related areas. Our graduates acquire the knowledge and technological tools for correct development in the academic and administrative environments of engineering. Additionally, our graduates can participate in research and development workgroups and work in pedagogical environments. Our engineers will always use the market and client needs and socio-ethical and environmental responsibilities as guidelines for career development.

PEO #2: Practice

Practicing Chemical Engineering. Our graduates are capable of developing as engineers in design- and optimization-related activities.  Our students can practice Engineering in both industrial and administrative environments. Using the soft skills that our students acquire through their studies, such as effective communication, collaborative work, entrepreneurship and computer-related skills, our graduates are effective leaders and team members in multidisciplinary environments.

PEO #3: Continuous Learning

Expanding skillsets and personal knowledge. When it is required, our graduates are capable of acquiring new knowledge through self-study or by taking part in high-level training such as professional certifications or graduate studies.

PEO #4: Leadership & Professional Engagement

Leadership & Professional Engagement. Achieve and maintain positions of influence with relevant impact in their organizations, demonstrating professional engagement, sustainability, and ethical and social responsibility.

As a graduate from the Bachelor of Chemical Engineering you will be able to design, operate, and improve processes to transform materials into chemical products, solving problems in industrial operations, and creating top quality products. You will use theories and methodologies to balance mass and energy, unit operations of fluid flows and transfer of mass and energy, chemical reactors, and process engineering. Thus, you will synthetize organic and inorganic chemical products, petroleum pharmaceuticals, and petrochemicals needed by industry and 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.

In addition to enhancing your entry skills, at the Bachelor of Chemical Engineering we propose to:

  • Teach you systems, components, and processes to create new chemical products.
  • Train you to identify, formulate, and solve different problems of chemical engineering.
  • Prepare you to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and social context.
  • Make you proficient in handling concepts of chemistry, physics, math, and science to formulate and solve chemical engineering problems.
  • Teach you to apply the fundamental laws of balance of mass, balance of energy, thermodynamics, kinetics, catalysis, fluid flow, heat transfer, and mass transfer.
  • Teach you the theoretical elements to master unit operations, as well as to design chemical reactors.
  • Interested in experimentation and analysis.
  • Knows concepts of chemistry, physics, math, and science in general.
  • Willing to work for the greater good and to be successful.
  • Determined to achieve goals through learning.

Chemical Engineering graduates will have developed the following skills:

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science and mathematics.
  2. An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences (oral & written).
  4. An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  5. An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks and meet objectives.
  6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
