International Accreditation

Chemical Engineering

is accredited by “the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,


Mission Statement

To prepare chemical engineering professional with a strong academic and technical foundations according to contemporary trends, and by instilling in the students the development of abilities and attitudes in order to promote the creation, practice and diffusion of knowledge, with the capacity to design and innovate sustainable process and products.

Vision Statement

The integration of one of the best programs in Chemical Engineering in Mexico and Latin America supported by national and international evaluation and accreditation agencies. The establishment of a faculty with the best technical and scientific ability as well as the promotion of the generation and application of knowledge through scientific and technological research.

Graduate Profile

Professional able to innovate, design, develop, optimize, manage and operate sustainable chemical processes with safety, quality, productivity and efficiency, with a sense of responsibility and an attitude of service to ensure awareness of current social issues, local and international capacity; thereby motivating collaborative and multidisciplinary work, oral and written communication skills in their native language and English.

The constituencies of the Chemical Engineering program are:


Each of these constituencies plays a key role in the educational processes, and has an active participation in the construction and modification of the objectives.

The school directives have the responsibility in obtaining and managing the necessary resources to carry the academic, extension, research and collaboration activities.

The program coordinator assisted by the curriculum revision committee has the responsibility to construct the objectives and restructure the program curriculum (approved by the University Honorary Directive Committee), according to the opinions of the alumni, employers, faculty and students based on the actual weakness and necessities noticed.

The Faculty has the compromise of teaching the courses that constitute the curriculum, and the fulfillment of the program objectives.

The students are the main beneficiaries of the educational process and through their feedback enable the continuous improvement of the objectives.
Alumni, employers participate with their opinions, comments and work through university extension programs to create or improved the objectives and also the learning outcomes.


Program Educational Objectives (PEO):

The chemical engineering program at UASLP uses an integral approach so that students are trained with the necessary knowledge, skills, and attitude to attain the following few years after graduation:
  • Be a professional capable of applying chemistry in the chemical process industries for the production of commodity and specialty chemicals, petroleum refining, metallurgy, polymers, food, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.
  • Incursion into new areas such as the energy, automotive and biotechnology industry currently of great global and local relevance.
  • Be prepared to pursue advanced diplomas in chemical engineering, as well as in related disciplines (materials science, bio-chemical, environmental, and business administration).
  • Incursion into the public and private services sectors related to Chemical Engineering and similar disciplines.
