The objectives for the program of Licenciatura in Environmental Engineering focus primarily on practicing engineers who are capable of working successfully not only in Mexico, but within a global context, in areas that include pollution prevention and control, development of sustainable systems, renewable energy, and optimization of processes and products within the chemical industry. The program is based on the fundamental and applied knowledge of Engineering, with focus on thermodynamics, transport phenomena, and unit operations. During the initial years of their careers, UDLAP’s environmental engineering graduates will:


PEO # 1: Career

Work successfully as environmental engineers, demonstrating technical proficiency in the theoretical and practical knowledge of the discipline, within engineering or related areas, and/or participate in research and development in science, engineering, technology and entrepreneurship, with a market orientation.

PEO #2: Leadership & Professional Engagement

Assume leadership positions and become effective communicators, team members, and decision makers.

PEO #3: Responsibility

Be responsible environmental engineers, participating in projects that recognize the global, social, and environmental impact.

PEO #4: Continuous Learning

As a graduate from the Bachelor of Environmental Engineering you will be able to define, operate, and improve environmental protection processes, applying theories and principles of balance of mass and energy, fluid flow unit operations, transfer of heat and energy, biochemical reactors, and process engineering for the elimination of pollutants. This will optimize industry operations and processes, will help maintain pollution prevention systems, and guarantee the safety of personnel and communities in public and private organizations.
Once you have finished your study program, you will have a bachelor´s degree in addition to a licenciatura degree. Therefore, your studies will be recognized worldwide.

Once you have finished your study program, you will have a bachelor´s degree in addition to a licenciatura degree. Therefore, your studies will be recognized worldwide.

In addition to enhancing your entry skills, at the Licenciatura in Environmental Engineering we propose to:

  • Teach you skills in the balance of matter and energy as applied to environmental bioprocesses, thermodynamics, and processes of transfer of mass, heat, and momentum.
  • Teach you to design unit operations and chemical, biochemical, and biotechnological reactions to eliminate, treat, and minimize environmental pollution, thus reducing its impact.
  • Help you to integrate and design the production processes that will benefit companies that you consider to be sustainable opportunities for the environment.
  • Instruct you in various sources of fossil and bio-sustainable fuel, establishing their impact when designing processes.
  • Encourage you to master modern experimental and computer techniques to optimize production processes that have low environmental impact, and designing remediation and control systems.
  • Train you to handle different computer programs to solve environmental engineering problems, chemical as well as of sustainable development.
  • Basic knowledge of mathematics and sciences.
  • Positive tendency to design solutions for environmental problems.
  • Willing to work for the common welfare and strive to success.
  • Vision to accomplish goals through learning.

Environmental Engineering graduates will have developed the following skills:

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science and mathematics.
  2. An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences (oral & written).
  4. An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  5. An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks and meet objectives.
  6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
