Entrance Profile of FCFM Engineering

The objective of the new Study Plan of  -last revised in 2007- is to preserve and strengthen the positive qualities that have traditionally characterized and distinguished the professionals of the School, and to develop additional capabilites that also strengthen their status as global, innovative and excellent professionals.

FCFM seeks to assure the following student achievements:

  • Reach a strong mastery of mathematics and the basic sciences, including the capacity to design experiments, obtain, use, and interpret data, and be capable of applying this knowledge where it is required.
  • Acquire strong training in the engineering sciences, master the current technoloy, and adapt to the changes that it undergoes.
  • Develop the capacity to design in engineering, have the capability of planning and resolving open problems or those that require a multidisciplinary focus, and work in teams.

Graduates must meet the following requirements:

  • Develop the abilities for both invention and innovation, and entrepreneurship, as well as for critical thinking.
  • Acquire and exercise the capacity for self-learning, and become aware of the importance of maintaining this habit after graduation. They may pursue graduate studies if they so wish in order to maximize their contributions in the creation and adaptation of technologies in the productive sectors.
  • Communicate effectively, orally, in writing, and graphically, in both Spanish and English, and this capacity must be exercised throughout the course of study.
  • Acquire competence in economic analysis and administration regardless of the speciality which is followed.
  • Understand their role in society and recognize the importance of ethical behavior in both the period of studies and later professional life, and act accordingly.
