In our Bachelor's program in Chemical Engineering, we focus on training engineers who are capable of developing successful careers both within and outside of Mexico, always considering the global aspects of modern engineering.

As a Chemical Engineer from UDLAP, you will be capable of working in multidisciplinary areas concerning the design, development, operation, and control of process systems. The main focus of our engineers lies in the design and synthesis of products and processes related to the chemical, petrochemical, and related industries.

Our Bachelor's program is designed to provide you with fundamental and applied knowledge in Chemical Engineering. Specifically, our engineers can specialize in areas related to thermodynamics, transport phenomena, unit operations, kinetics, and chemical reactors.

During the years that follow after graduation, our Chemical Engineers will:

PEO #1: Career Development

Our graduates are equipped to work as professionals in engineering and related fields. They acquire the knowledge and technological tools necessary for successful development in academic and administrative engineering environments. Additionally, our graduates can participate in research and development teams and excel in pedagogical settings. They will consistently prioritize market and client needs, as well as their socio-ethical and environmental responsibilities, as guiding principles for their career development.

PEO #2: Practice

Our graduates engage in practicing Chemical Engineering through design and optimization-related activities. They can apply engineering principles in industrial as well as administrative settings. Leveraging the soft skills acquired during their studies, such as effective communication, collaboration, entrepreneurship, and computational proficiency, our graduates emerge as effective leaders and team members in multidisciplinary environments.

PEO #3: Continuous Learning

Our program fosters the expansion of skill sets and personal knowledge. When necessary, our graduates are capable of acquiring new knowledge through self-study or by participating in high-level training, such as pursuing professional certifications or graduate studies.

PEO #4: Leadership & Professional Engagement

Our graduates continually expand their skill set and knowledge, if necessary, through independent study or by pursuing high-level training opportunities such as professional certifications or graduate degrees.

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.
