  • PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

The Program Educational Objectives are defined due to the expectations of the Industrial Engineer with minor in Management program, in which it is established what alumni should be able to do 3 to 5 years after they graduate.  The Program Educational Objectives reflect the application of the knowledge received during their curricular training once the student provides a context to his/her undergraduate education.

Graduates from the Industrial Engineering with minor in Management program of the UANL School of Chemistry are able to:

  1. Continuously improve the processes of the value chain to systematically increase the profitability of organization.
  2. Develop optimal production systems that maximize value for its various stakeholders.
  3. Conduct business effectively in dynamic environments through a human sense leadership, which is based on results, allowing the enhancement of the talent of staff and adaptation to change.
  4. Demonstrate a positive attitude towards innovation by being a change agent who acts professionally, in a responsible and ethical manner, who takes into account the environment and society.

The objectives are based on the following key concepts: continuous process improvement, value chain, profitability, optimal processes, stakeholder groups, leadership, human talent, dynamic environments, and adaptation to change. “Optimal processes” are those that have a minimum variability, maximum efficiency of resources and those which comply with the customer’s requirements, taking into account the needs of the different “stakeholder groups”, such as suppliers, employees, government, shareholders, unions, society, among others. In order to maintain the processes in optimal conditions, the “continuous improvement of processes”, which is defined as the constant search of better practices of productive processes with the purpose of optimizing and increasing the quality of the product, process or service, must be applied. The “value chain” is the way in which the actions and activities of organizations are developed in order to look for competitive and sustainable advantages through cost reduction and the rise of the available material and human resources efficiency. These competitive advantages can only be achieved through effective “leadership”, which intends to develop “human talent” competencies to the fullest by constantly adapting to changes in “dynamic environments”. Finally, it is expected for the organizations to be highly “profitable”, this is to say that they can achieve profits and benefits superior from those of their competition.
