Program Description

What is Civil Engineering?

Civil engineering is a profession that directly impacts the quality of life of the inhabitants of a region and its economy. It covers basic needs such as drinking water supply, housing, energy, mobility of people and products, disposal of wastewater, among others. All this makes that, although it is one of the oldest engineering, it is considered cutting-edge and with high level of performance and application.

Why study Civil Engineering?

  • Because it is necessary to conceive, design, build and maintain physical infrastructure works that are efficient, economical, safe and sustainable, that respond to the needs of a region.
  • Improve the quality of life of its inhabitants and more competitive, through the application and development of engineering methods and techniques, according to the principles of ethics, justice and social responsibility.
  • It is necessary to innovate, compete and satisfy basic needs in a safe, economical and feasible way, this makes civil engineering a profession of challenges, in which the graduate must recognize the context of the region where he is performing, to be in permanent contact with the technological development in each of the areas of civil engineering and have a general vision of the problems of society.

Methodology

The civil engineering program is developed in face-to-face mode, supported by information and communication technologies as educational resources that mediate learning. Due to the training in engineering, the program implements the active learning methodology that links the student to the solution of problems of his professional field and makes him more involved in his training through the development of experimental practices, business experiences, studies of cases and learning projects among others. The classes are designed as academic work environments where the student reflects, discusses with arguments and proposes alternative solutions to different engineering problems under the guidance of a transforming teacher of ways of thinking and acting of his students to contribute with the training of better human beings and professionals.
