Systems and Industrial Technologies Engineering


9 Semesters


Degree description:

In Systems and Industrial Technologies Engineering seeks to prepare students in the 5 major areas of Industrial Engineering such as: Production, Quality, Materials Supplies, Productivity and Safety, all under a systemic and relevant approach, with the transmission of the most current knowledge in terms of methodologies, tools and software applicable to production processes and services. In addition to technology, it seeks to prepare students to manage and direct staff.

Initially and as part of the preparation in Engineering, the subjects that the student will study are based primarily on mathematical and science reasoning, on the use of information and communication technologies and on the creation of study and psychosocial habits that facilitate their academic and work development.

As they advance in their degree, more and more specific subjects of the field of Engineering in systems and industrial technologies are incorporated, to finish with specialized subjects in the most modern knowledge; being integrating subjects that allow the achievement of competences required their field of work; including English. At the end of their degree, ISTI students must complete a 480-hour internship, where they can live practically what was seen in the classrooms; although in many of the subjects of ISTI there must be final projects of application in the industry that allow an experiential approach early in their degree; as well as when doing internships.

The most outstanding students with a good level of English can access the industry as of sixth semester through the dual program; a cooperative dual program of University - Business Training.

There is also the ongoing activity of chapter # 736 of the Institute for Industrial Engineers (IIE,, where students organize academic development activities, social responsibility and economic funding to assist and organize national congresses (Puebla, Monterrey, Saltillo, Mérida, Villahermosa, Aguascalientes, Hermosillo, Ciudad Madero) and congresses and international visits (Cancun, Montreal, San Antonio, Houston and Nashville).
