This description corresponds to the program taught here in Mexico City Campus. It is a professional able to understand the phenomena and mechanisms in the generation and efficient use of energy, emissions management, recycling and reuse of waste water and in the middle thinking environment and society. Currently over 50% of the world population lives in urban areas, and over 15% in megacities, thereby causing problems of water supply, energy, transport and problems of environmental degradation associated with handling liquid discharges, emissions to air and solid waste generation. Soon, the meeting of the United Nations will be effected to ratify and monitor related international agreement signed in Kyoto Climate Change in 1997. This agreement aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions for 37 industrialized countries and the European Community are established. At this summit to be held in Copenhagen in late 2009, the agreements are renewed commitments relating to climate change and is expected to developing countries like ours to gain some level of commitment to limit emissions of greenhouse gases. Sustainable development is defined as "development that meets the needs of present generations without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs" believes, therefore, that it is essential the interrelationship between social, economic and environmental factors to improve the quality of human life, and further provides that this must be true for present and for future generations. Under this environment, it is expected that clean technologies are an industry of high growth, value and investment in this century, as in many countries are generating government schemes to support and promote these technologies. The program in Sustainable Development Engineering ITESM, has a focus on developing projects for efficient use of energy and waste management by incorporating new technologies, new materials and alternative energy. ...
