about the

Program

The Electrical Engineering program is based on the study of physical phenomena related to electricity and magnetism. In this sense, electrical engineers are required to learn about the concepts of electric charge, electric current, electric potential, potential difference (voltage), electric field, magnetic field, electric energy, and electric power. This conceptual framework is the basis for the development of electromagnetic theory and the study of electrical circuits, as essential pillars for the analysis and design of electrical machines, electric power transmission lines, electric power distribution networks, electrical installations and, in general, the operation and expansion of power systems.

These systems include the equipment, elements, subsystems, and technologies involved in the transformation of different forms of energy into electrical energy; the transportation of large quantities of this energy; its distribution among end-users; and its use in productive, industrial, commercial, and service processes. All of this in compliance with safety, reliability, quality, and economy requirements, following the technical standards applicable to each case.

APPLICANT

Profile

Applicants to the program are selected according to the scores obtained in the areas of the new Icfes State exam (Common Core), based on a set of selection criteria, giving priority to applicants with the best overall academic performance in the indicated areas.

Applicants compete with six scores, one for each selection criterion, which are ranked according to the priorities associated with each program. When the criterion consists of more than one area of the State Exam, the lowest score is considered because it represents the applicant's overall performance in that set of areas.

Regarding the Electrical Engineering program, the institutional agreement establishes the following six (6) selection criteria, in their respective order of importance:

  • Mathematics, Physics and Language Arts.

  • Mathematics.

  • Physics and Language.

  • Language.

  • Physics.

  • Philosophy and Chemistry.

GRADUATE

Profile

Electrical engineers who graduated from the UIS are responsible, ethical, creative, tolerant, committed and environmentally friendly professionals, highly qualified to work in groups and to communicate efficiently. They have the necessary competencies to learn autonomously and to adapt to the realities of the environment.

They are also trained to design electric power transmission lines, electric power distribution networks, electrical substations, process control systems and electrical installations. In addition, they are able to analyze power systems in steady state, both under normal operating conditions and under fault conditions. Graduates are also capable of analyzing the performance of rotating electrical machines and transformers. Likewise, they can dimension and analyze electrical energy measurement systems and understand the processes of electrical energy production.

Depending on their preferences, electrical engineers have specific research and professional competencies in one of the following areas: industrial automation, electric power quality, operation, and expansion of power systems, rational use of energy, alternative sources of power generation or electric power markets.

LABOR

Field

Their training allows them to work in fields related to the production, transportation, distribution, commercialization, and use of electrical energy. In this sense, they can participate in the development, operation, and maintenance of systems that use or produce electrical energy; in the management of engineering projects; as well as in commercial and technical activities that derive from considering electrical energy as a product.

CONTINUOUS

Improvement

The Electrical Engineering program has implemented a process of continuous improvement that will allow future professionals to have a solid educational foundation with the capacity to manage innovative processes, emerging technologies, and anticipate the welfare and safety needs of the community. With this, students, employers, and society in general will be confident that the program meets quality standards and prepares graduates to enter a global workforce.

Program Educational Objectives

The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) for Electrical Engineering are to educate engineering graduates who 3 to 5 years after graduation:

  • Create engineering solutions in profit of the community or productive sector, based on natural sciences knowledge and electrical engineering skills.
  • Participate, lead and communicate effectively in interdisciplinary teams.
  • Practice their professional activity in an integral, ethical and responsible manner and compromised with environment and society.
Student Outcomes The program of Electrical Engineering aims to develop the following student outcomes:
  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  • 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.
  • An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  • An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
