about the

Program

The Chemical Engineering program of the Universidad Industrial de Santander trains professionals for the formulation of projects, analysis, design, construction, and assembly of plants and equipment. The operation, direction, supervision, and control of processes involving chemical, physical and biochemical changes.

It also educates professionals to offer engineering services, with an approach based on the theoretical and practical aspects, which govern the phenomena that occur within these processes, with the aim of generating value to goods and services.  The UIS Chemical Engineering program was created in 1948. It is one of the founding programs of the Universidad Industrial de Santander.  And for more than 72  years,  it demonstrates high quality, research capacity,  innovation, and success.  And it stands out for interdisciplinarity, researchable character, and openness to the world.

APPLICANT

Profile

The aspiring chemical engineer of the Industrial University of Santander, UIS must have an interest in the processes of transformation of raw materials, as well as the willingness to learn and apply the concepts from the sciences (mathematics, chemistry, physics and biology) that are necessary to carry out such an end. You should feel the motivation and taste to learn, and continue to grow as a person and professional future.

GRADUATE

Profile

The Chemical Engineer of the UIS, applies the principles of the basic sciences for the development, supervision, optimization, control and administration of sustainable physicochemical and biotechnological processes. The UIS chemical engineering professional is characterized by his leadership and decision-making ability, based on critical analysis and the generation of new knowledge.

LABOR

Field

The Chemical Engineer is able to perform: analysis, administration, management, supervision and control of processes, in which physical, chemical and biochemical changes are made to transform raw materials into processed or semi-processed products. He also has the knowledge to develop the design, construction, assembly of plants and equipment for processes, in any industry, organization, company, university, laboratory and research institute, and can perform work in Teaching and Research. Taken from: Law 18 of 1976 "Regulating the exercise of the profession of Chemical Engineer in the country, recognized by the Ministry of National Education".

OUR

Accreditations

The quality of our programs is a guarantee for our students and graduates. Note::  Time has already elapsed since last year, so  it's not  recently. que  TheMinistry of National Education (MEN), has granted the renewal of the high quality accreditation,for8 years, to the undergraduate program. And to the satisfaction of the academic community of the Universidad industrial de Santander, the  first international accreditation has been obtained for an academic program of the University.

This accreditation for 6 years, has been granted by the Accreditation System of University Careers for the Regional Recognition of the academic quality of the respective degrees in Mercosur and Associated States – Arcu-South System.

The accreditations and recognitions, together with the distinctions and awards given to students and teachers, both by the Professional Council of Chemical Engineering of Colombia, CPIQ, and by the National Awards Otto de Greiff,  and Eloy Valenzuela (UIS)  take pride in academic community and invite us to continue to persist in dynamism, quality, commitment, and professional and academic ethics.
