The program of Licenciatura in Industrial Engineering at Fundacion Universidad de las Américas Puebla provides you with a solid education, based on basic knowledge of engineering and science through interdisciplinary courses that strengthen your professional competence. Throughout this program, you will understand the methods to specify, predict and evaluate the results of integrated systems, and you will be trained in the use of economic evaluation techniques to support you in making decisions related to the management of integrated systems. Additionally, you will be able to implement projects and define the necessary measures to ensure the permanence of the improvements achieved.


As a professional Industrial Engineer you will analyze - with theoretical, technical and practical criteria - design functions and operations management in any organization. In addition, you will meet the challenges of industrial and service sectors, solving complex problems by optimizing business processes. Also, you will design systems to produce goods and services in any organization. During the early years of their career, the Industrial Engineering graduates UDLAP will:

PEO # 1: Become critical, creative and innovative professionals who contribute significantly to the success of the organizations where they work; their achievements enable them to achieve and maintain positions of influence in their organizations.

PEO # 2: Become successful industrial engineers based on their high-level technical training, knowledge of relevant research in industrial engineering as well as their awareness of the importance of continuous learning.

PEO # 3: Be aware of the impact of their professional performance can have on the environment, society and economy and therefore to evaluate their decisions and actions based on the effects they will produce.


The candidates should demonstrate that:

  • Enjoy knowing how things work.
