School of Engineering

Dr. Gonzalo Ulloa Ph.D.

The School of Engineering works on the four areas of knowledge that have transformed society and the world in the last century. The first area is industrial engineering, which perfects the methods of production and services. Second, industrial design, which makes objects and interfaces more friendly, usable and human focused. Third, biochemical engineering, with its focus on resolving biological, chemical and physical processes. And fourth, information and communication technologies (ICT), which have transformed the world in the last decades.

The school has five academic departments that develop undergraduate and graduate professionals with abilities, technical skills and personal values in aspects related to the four areas of ICT, industrial engineering, biochemical engineering and industrial design.

The School of Engineering is divided into departments and academic programs. The departments work on the previously mentioned four areas of knowledge and the basic sciences to support the university's undergraduate and graduate programs.

The school has six registered undergraduate programs and six registered graduate programs, in addition to working in consulting and continuing education which provide advice and training to organizations in the region.

Our Focus

The School of Engineering at Icesi University aims to be recognized by Colombian society, national organizations and academic peers of international prestige, for the excellent education of its graduates, for the increasing visibility of its research results and for the positive impact in its interaction with the region and with the country in the areas of design and engineering.

For this purpose, the School conducts research in the areas of design and engineering, working on the industrial design of products, objects and innovative interfaces to strengthen the industrial capacity of the region. It also works in the improvement and innovation of industrial processes and on innovative developments in information and communication technologies.

La Facultad de Ingeniería de la Universidad Icesi trabaja por ser reconocida por la sociedad colombiana, las organizaciones nacionales y pares académicos de prestigio internacional, por la excelente formación de sus egresados, por la creciente visibilidad de sus resultados de investigación y por el impacto positivo de su interacción con la región y con el país en las áreas del Diseño y la Ingeniería.
Por esto realiza investigación en estos dos campos desde el diseño industrial de productos, objetos, formas en interfaces innovadoras para fortalecer la capacidad industrial de la región. También trabaja en el mejoramiento de los procesos industriales y en desarrollos innovadores en el área de las tecnologías de información y las comunicaciones.

Research Groups

The faculty has three research groups in its three areas of knowledge: in the design area, it has the group called Leonardo; in Industrial Engineering, the group called iCubo (Research in Industrial Engineering); and in Information and Communications Technology, the group i2T (Research in Information Technology and Telecommunications) that recently merged with the group DRISO (Software Engineering Development).
