By its nature, the DCI is multidisciplinary, covering four areas of knowledge (biotechnology, mechatronics, industrial engineering and environmental systems) that have been selected among the research lines with greater strength within the Division of Engineering and Architecture. These areas interact with each other through projects, centers and research chairs
The areas of knowledge serve as a crucible for the definition of the research lines of the DCI Program:
Mechatronics and Advanced Manufacturing Mechatronics and Advanced Manufacturing comprises the analysis and synthesis of complex systems in which multiple disciplines interact. The Mechatronics and Advanced Manufacturing line responds to the need to train human resources for research, with a high level of preparation in the disciplines of Automation, Mechanics and Electronics.Clean Energies and Sustainable Use of Water Clean Energy and Sustainable Use of Water responds to global needs by evolving operational approaches, from treatments for pollution control to the concept of corporate social responsibility. Indicates the relevance that in relation to the economic and social spheres has the use of natural resources with an ecosystemic approach, the care of the physical environment and the protection of the health of the population, all with a focus and vision of sustainability.Industrial engineer Industrial Engineering is related to the increase of competitiveness worldwide and represents one of the greatest challenges of any nation, particularly its institutions and companies who will have to face a continuous process of increased productivity, efficient use of resources and generation of courage to face the growing competition. Research at the frontier of...

In a globally connected and rapidly changing world, engineers need to work across the national, domain, and disciplinary boundaries to effectively address complex socio-technical challenges. To fully assume this expanding responsibility of the engineering profession, we must transform the ways engineering students are educated at the undergraduate level and also equip future engineers at the graduate level with the skills and orientations to become boundary spanners and change leaders. The emphasis area Engineering Education and Transformative Practice addresses these related challenges in a novel, interdisciplinary Ph.D. program.
This emphasis area within our Ph.D. in Engineering prepares graduates for broad practice and academic applications at the intersection of human and technical systems. Through an innovative fusion of methods of social inquiry, knowledge of human development, and tools for positive change embedded in a context of deep technical competence, graduates are enabled to provide transformative leadership in a variety of educational, technical, and organizational settings. Upon graduation, students will be able to apply their unique skill set to a diverse range of contexts, including formal and informal education environments, engineering practice, learning organizations, social entrepreneurship, customer discovery, leadership, and policy....
