Bachelor of Industrial Chemistry


The Industrial Chemistry Area of the UANL School of Chemistry is internationally acknowledged in 2020 due to the quality of its undergraduate and graduate education, research, cooperative efforts with industry, and community service, as part of a socially responsible, world-class organization.



To be part of the UANL School of Chemistry, which according to its vision, performs activities directed toward education, research, service, management, and liaison, encouraging scientific, technology and human development with precise observation of safety norms and environment protection to improve the quality of society life.



Prospective students wishing to apply for the Industrial Chemistry Program should possess basic high school knowledge of Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics and a deep interest in exact sciences, including chemistry. Students should be aware of the difficulty level in chemical sciences for being able to face the complexity of the program.

Students should be able to maintain a positive attitude toward the challenges of the program, rely on appropriate study habits for self-teaching, possess critical thinking and reflection, collaborate, manage time to integrate and apply the newly acquired knowledge, solve problems, learn continuously, and acknowledge his/her social responsibility when participating.

In addition, students should possess abilities in written and oral communication for expressing ideas and be able to offer positive criticism and self-criticism, being always open to change. Students need specific abilities for experimental work, such as being thorough, analytical, creative, able to identify risks and work in laboratory operations, being always honest and respectful to the environment.


Graduates of the Industrial Chemistry Program are completely professional, honest, respectful, social, responsible with a quality and self-teaching culture, able to work in interdisciplinary teams, entrepreneurial, creative, leaders, innovative, communicative and versatile in social and professional environments. Graduates are competitive in planning, optimization, operation and direction of the technological development of sustainable chemical processes, besides being important elements of the scientific and competent research for quality control of raw materials, production, and waste management. Their training allows them to respond, consciously, responsibly, and ethically to industrial and scientific challenges related to chemistry, processes and products. Their knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values will favor their incorporation into the production business and the academic and research organizations, both locally and globally.

  1. The design of sustainable chemical processes by applying knowledge of different chemistry areas to generate products and services for society.
  2. The analysis of any sample by implementing and/or developing appropriate analytical techniques to control chemical processes and ensure the quality of raw materials and products.
  3. The management of laboratory operations by following regulations on safety and hygiene for the responsible development of products and chemical processes.
  4. The assessment of chemical industry problems by analyzing the different stages of processes for giving a solution to the maintenance and improvement of product and service quality.
  5. The ability to propose operation parameters that will be applied in the industrial stage of laboratory chemical processes.
  6. The capacity to ensure the quality of raw materials and finished products through the application of statistical tools for assisting in the control of basic and transformation chemical processes within the industry sector.
  7. The implementation of laboratory accreditation processes in compliance with quality standards of national and international assessment organizations for gaining recognition as a provider of accredited laboratory services.
  8. The development of projects in scientific research and technology development through the application of chemistry and scientific methods to propose innovative solutions to the problems of chemistry.
