The road to

Excellence

Through more than 72 years of continuous work, the School of Chemical Engineering of the Universidad Industrial de Santander has helped to consolidate the academic, scientific, and industrial culture of our region and the country.

Chemical Engineering, is a pioneer and leader in the regional and national academic field. Here she graduated the first female graduate of the UIS: Cecilia Reyes de León, former rector of the University.  In Chemical Engineering, one of the first centers of study in our country was born, the first scientific journal in chemical engineering in Colombia: Ion Magazine. Also, Colombia’s first master’s and first doctorate in chemical engineering.

It is the studio of true leaders because its graduates, stand out in the industry, academia, and science, nationally and internationally. The first research groups have also been created and formalized in the Eastern region and in the country. These groups have consolidated a tradition of research, innovation, and internationalization that today characterizes our community.

The School of Chemical Engineering offers 2 undergraduate programs and five graduate programs. The seal of high academic quality is evidenced through the certification granted by the Ministry of National Education (MEN) and Mercosur and the Associated States, through the Arcu-South System, with high-quality international accreditation.

The academic community, made up of students, teachers, graduates, and administrative collaborators, grows and strives to show that it is constantly evolving, with high rates of quality, interdisciplinarity, and innovation.
