Enrollment profile

The degree in Physics is designed to be offered to students from the high schools with a special preference on natural and exact sciences. IN addition of the previously acquired knowledge, it is desirable for the applicant to show some of the following characteristics:

  • Taste for the ordered and systemic observation.
  • Critic spirit.
  • Desire of globalization and synthesis.
  • Non dogmatic and open mind posture.
  • Curiosity for the progress of science in any branch.
  • Taste for innovation.

Preferable profile for enrollment:

  • Knowledge in: sets, algebra, trigonometry, analytic geometry, mathematics for calculus, basic knowledge of general culture.
  • Skills: reading and comprehension, capability of abstraction, logical reasoning, analysis and synthesis.
  • Attitudes: enthusiasm and scientific curiosity, taste for rigor and precision, critic spirit, interest to work in teams, taste for invention creativity and interest in technology.
Graduate profile

There is a list of competences for all who graduates from an educational program of sciences and engineering at DCI, such list wasa created from a selection and analysis of the proposed competencies by the Tuning Project (Tuning Educational Structures [11], 2011), which, same as in the original document, they’re divided in Instrumental, Personal and Systemic. The selection consists in an analysis of the competencies every graduate from DCI should acquire. Here is the list of the competencies that allow to comprehensively integrate with each one of the specific competencies.

  • Instrumental:Capability of analysis and synthesis. Capability to organize and plan. Written and oral communication in their own language. Knowledge of a foreign language. Knowledge of informatics in study. Capability to manage information. Problem solving. Decision making.
  • Personal:Work in a multi and interdisciplinary team. Skills in interpersonal relationships. Capacity to communicate with experts from other areas. Recognition to diversity and multiculturality. Critical Reasoning. Ethical commitment. Capability to research.
  • Systemic:Capacity to apply the knowledge in the practice. Autonomous learning and permanent update. Adaptability to new situations. Skills to work autonomously. Creativity. Leadership. Knowledge of other cultures and customs. Entrepreneur spirit and initiative. Thrive for quality. Sensitivity for environmental topics. Social responsibility and citizen commitment. Skills to look, process and analyze information from several sources.

20 specific competencies were built, which were classified as specific cognitive, methodological and instrumental, labor-social and are enlisted next.

  • Cognitive:Shows a deep comprehension of the fundamental concepts and principles both in Classic and Modern Physics. Describes and explains natural phenomena and technological processes in terms of concepts, principles and physical theories. Seeks, interpret and uses the scientific information. Knows and comprehends the conceptual development of Physics in historical and epistemological terms.
  • Methodological:Competencies to be addressed in the syllabus mainly with practical contents (laboratories, workshops, hours of practice in class). In the design of the syllabus, it is necessary to consider the relationship of subjects with theoretical contents with the practical contents.
  • Systemic:Plans, analyzes and solves physics problems, both theoretical as experimental, using analytical methods, experimental or numeric. Builds simplified models that describe a complex situation, identifying its essential elements and effectuating the necessary approximations. Verifies and evaluates the adjustment of models to reality, identifying its validity domain. Applies the theoretical knowledge of Physics in the realization and interpretation of experiment. Develops valid arguments in Physics, identifying hypothesis and conclusions. Synthetizes solutions, extending them to principles, laws and more general theories. Perceives the analogies between apparently diverse situations, using known solutions in solving new problems. Estimates the order of magnitude of measurable quantities to interpret diverse phenomena.
  • Instrumental:Uses and elaborates computer software or systems to process information, numeric calculus, physical processes’ simulation or control of experiments. Shows experimental dexterities and uses of adequate models in the lab work.
  • Labor & Social:Participates in professional activities related with high level technologies, be that in the lab or the industry. Participated in advisory and elaborating new science and technology proposals in topics with economic and social impact in the national ambience. Shows necessary work habits to develop the profession such as teamwork, scientific rigor, self-learning and persistence. Participates in the elaboration and development of new research projects in Physics or interdisciplinary. Shows willingness to dace new problems in other fields, using their skills and specific knowledge. Knows the relevant concepts of the teaching-learning process of Physics, by proving willingness to collaborate in forming scientists.
