Graduate profile

The specific competencies are composed by the knowledge, skills and values that specifically limit the graduate profile of the degree in Civil Engineering. These are the set of contemplated learning in the syllabus of the education program the student must acquire or develop at the end of each learning unit, learning lines and completing the syllabus.

  • CE1. Participates in the business administration of construction companies, by designing, operating and evaluating projects, that allow them to permanently orient their labor with a responsible posture.
  • CE2. Act as a worksite resident, making budgets, calculating unit prices, volumes and estimation, using current software, also, know the construction materials and methods to efficiently carry on the assigned worksites.
  • CE3. Builds the infrastructure of a region through her/his planning, projection, design, construction, supervision and administration to promote their comprehensive development.
  • CE4. Dictates the site based on its function, operation and maintenance to close the infrastructure, considering the social, environmental and economic impacts this implies.
  • CE5. Administers hydraulic engineering, terrestrial, ports and sail routes, edification, bridges, viaducts, urban infrastructure, lineal worksites, and transport, through their planning, design, operation, budgeting and conservation, with Avant Garde technology for the optimal use of the material resources, considering their feasibility with a focus on sustainability.
  • CE6. Negotiates civil engineering worksites, parting from their design, construction, evaluation, such as routes, hydraulic sites and urban and industrial equipment, to attend the current and future demand of society, using modern methodologies and techniques and tolls, considering their impact and proposing applicable mitigation measures
