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.

Engineering Ph.D.

Program overview

The doctorate program in engineering prepares the next generation of engineering leaders to tackle some of the most daunting and complex problems facing our society.

The program's goal is to produce engineering graduates who are subject matter experts in a knowledge domain within an engineering discipline and who can compete successfully with those who have earned discipline-specific doctorates in engineering. Instead of restricting graduates to individual engineering fields (e.g., chemical, computer, electrical, industrial, mechanical, etc.) the program provides students with the flexibility to become subject matter experts and engineering innovators in an open-architecture environment, fostering intellectual growth along both interdisciplinary pathways and within the bounds of conventional engineering disciplines. With this approach, the program develops world-class researchers who can capitalize on the most promising discoveries and innovations, regardless of their origin within the engineering field, to develop interdisciplinary solutions for real-world challenges....

Management Science and Engineering (120100) Program Introduction

The discipline Management Science and Engineering is one of the disciplines at the first-level in the Management Discipline Group according to the Chinese Discipline Classification. The theoretical and knowledge foundation of this discipline is formed by combining management, economics, mathematics, systems science, information science and so on. By comprehensive applications of these scientific principles and methodologies, it aims at analyzing and solving various management related problems in society, economy, enterprises and other institutions through both qualitative and quantitative methods, with quantitative research as the more important aspect. The main research tasks of this discipline are to provide enterprises and other organizations with systematic theory foundations, methodological models, and information systems so as to support their decisions in relation to the business, operation, management as well as project evaluation and management. As the earliest founded discipline and one of the fastest developed disciplines in the Management Discipline Group, the discipline Management Science and Engineering has formed more completed theoretical system base, with distinguished characters in more emphasizing scientific methodology and models, a closer connection to engineering areas and more attention to practical applications....
