Educational objectives:

In the medium term, they refer to the expected professional performance of graduates some years after they have graduated from the Institution.

Community related to the program:

Faculty, students, employers, graduates, authorities, advisory councils or others directly related to the program.

Graduation Profile:

Describes what students are expected to know and be able to do at the time of graduation from the program. Refers to the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that students acquire throughout their advancement and include the Graduate Attributes of the Washington Accord. They are expected to be achieved through the learning outcomes defined in the subjects.

Complex Engineering Problems:

They are those that cannot be solved without a deep engineering knowledge that considers one or several of the following characteristics, which provide a fundamental basis, an analytical approach based on fundamental principles for it:

  1. Deep knowledge based on the theory of engineering fundamentals necessary in the discipline.
  2. Engineering expertise that provides the theoretical and practical frameworks for the engineering discipline; many of which are at the forefront of the discipline.
  3. Knowledge that supports engineering design in a specific area (practice).
  4. Knowledge of engineering practices (technology) in the practice areas of the engineering discipline.
  5. Selected knowledge of the research literature on the discipline.

And they have one or more of the following characteristics:

  1. It involves wide-ranging or conflicting technical, engineering, and other matters.
  2. They do not have an obvious solution and require abstract thinking and originality in the analysis to formulate adequate models.
  3. They involve infrequent problems.
  4. They are out of norms, standards and codes.
  5. They involve various stakeholders with very diverse (and even conflicting) needs.
  6. They are high-level problems that include many components or sub-problems.
  7. They have significant consequences in a wide range of contexts.
  8. Require judgment in decision making.


Evidence System of student learning outcomes:

Mechanisms by which information and evidence are identified, collected and prepared to evaluate the achievement of student learning outcomes.

Assessment of achievement of student learning outcomes:

Mechanisms intended to interpret the information and accumulated evidence. The evaluation determines the degree to which the student’s learning is being achieved. This evaluation gives rise to decisions and actions to improve what corresponds: the evaluation system such as tests, exams, cases, projects; or the formulation of subjects such as content or bibliography; or pedagogical strategies, among others.

Design or Development of Engineering Solutions:

Design solutions for complex problems in engineering and design of systems, components, or processes that meet specific needs, duly considering public, cultural, social, and environmental health and safety issues.
