The Industrial Engineer of the Faculty of Physical and Mathematical Sciences of the University of Chile, is a professional who conceives, designs, implements, optimizes and manages systems and processes that add value to organizations in the public and private sector.

The training of our Industrial Engineering students enables them to assume leading roles in the management of organizations. Our graduates use concepts and methodologies from operations management, information and communication technologies, finance, economics and marketing,  achieving effective, efficient and innovative solutions in private, public and non-profit organizations.

Admission to the Industrial Engineering degree is made through the Engineering and Science program of our School of Engineering. Our students initially take a four-semester program which provides them with a solid foundation in basic sciences.

After those four semesters, our students begin their training with courses offered by the Industrial Engineering department. This training considers knowledge and skills that are essential for an Industrial Engineer, such as: operations management, information and communication technologies, finance, economics, marketing, leadership and innovation.

The training of our students concludes with the development of an undergraduate thesis. This consists of an original professional or research project. This project is an opportunity for our students to demonstrate and use the knowledge and skills acquired in their coursework, to work autonomously and present their findings and results in a clear, concise and effective manner.

Finally, several courses are regularly offered in English to help our students to improve their language skills and prepare them better for global professional environments.
