ABOUT THE

Program

The Master’s program of Chemical Engineering of the Universidad industrial de Santander, started activities in 1968, being the first master’s program of the area, in our country.  

The program awards the title of Magister of Chemical Engineering, and lasts four (4) semesters. The modality is face-to-face, with semi-annual admission periodicity. The academic curriculum, has been designed to give a solid theoretical fun teaching in the subjects considered the basis of the Chemical Engineering:  Thermodynamics, Transport Phenomena and Mathematics. Students also take the electives of specialization and training in research, through research seminars. Subsequently, they carry out the approach and development or a research thesis, about a relevant problem.
