Degree Profile for the Industrial Engineering program
An industrial engineer graduated from Universidad de Las Américas (UDLA) is a competent, enterprising professional with international/global vision who designs and optimizes operations through quality assurance, increased productivity and innovative development of operative processes of the manufacturing and services industry, with a focus on safe working environments and environmentally friendly methods.
The UDLA industrial engineer is able to identify, formulate and solve complex problems through the application of engineering, science and math principles and concepts. Moreover, a graduate from this program applies designs specific to industrial engineering with the purpose of creating solutions to satisfy specific needs related to public health, safety and wellness, as well as environmental, social, cultural, global and economic factors. They recognize ethical and professional implications in engineering projects and can make informed decisions while considering the impact of their solution in global, economic, social and environmental contexts. They work efficiently in teams with a collaborative and inclusive environment of leadership, where they establish and attain goals and plan necessary tasks together. Additionally, they can design, develop and carry out experiments, analyze and interpret data and results and use their engineering expertise to arrive to conclusions. Finally, they acquire and apply new knowledge as necessary, using appropriate learning strategies. The graduate of this program attains and is awarded the degree of Industrial Engineer.
