ABOUT THE

Program

The PhD in Engineering establishes the research element as the axis of the student’s training in the search for new knowledge in the different lines of research offered through the school’s research groups, all of them recognized by COLCIENCIAS, through which it seeks to respond to the needs of development and projection of the productive sector and society. In this way, the program contributes to the search for solutions to circumstantial problems of the productive sector through the research work carried out by the research groups. It also offers companies the possibility of improving the training of their professionals and consequently increasing their competitiveness and extending their capacity in terms of product and/or service development.
