Engineering

The College of Engineering UP seeks to prepare engineers who can make a positive impact on society and on organizations, through the successful practice of their professions. They will acquire technical, managerial, business, and humanistic perspectives which will enable them to incorporate technical, scientific, human, economic, and social factors, which, according to the institutional mission, will aid in the construction of a more just world.

 

The College of Engineering at UP is a proud example of technological development. We are leaders in the field of engineering  for our academic excellence, as certified by different institutions. We are the only Engineering school which has consistently won awards in international competitions during the past decade.

 

  • We have the largest ratio of faculty per student in the National System for Researchers of the National Council for Science and Technology. Our researchers have published over 100 papers co-authored with researchers from China, Russia, Spain, France, Canada and Norway, among others.

 

Mission: To form industry leaders who are committed to society, developing imporvements for the welfare and progress of humankind.

 

Vision: To be the best College of Engineering in Mexico.

Faculty

In order for UP to carry out its formational project, the faculty must freely accept a commitment to seek the aims of the university, and to participate in its educational work.

 

The recruitment and formation of our teaching staff is fundamental in accomplishing our mission and guaranteeing academic quality. A careful recruiment process ensures that our candidates have the necessary competencies and university vocation, and that they can continue to develop these in the future. 

Research

The purpose of a university is not only to teach and spread knowledge, but to generate it as well.

 

At UP, we place special emphasis on research work, with the aim of promoting social progress from science and humanities, but with a strict ethical sense. Our researchers are committed to serving society, firstly, by flawlessly performing their task of teaching, and secondly, by being the creative and innovative minds which drive social progress from within the university.

 

Publications

With the aim of supporting teaching and strengthening research, Universidad Panamericana promotes among its faculty, the publication of scholarly articles, opinion pieces, and lectures directed to all members of the University community and society in general.

Logros y reconocimientos

We are the only College of Engineering in Mexico which has consistently won awards in international competitions during the past decade:

 

In 2013, the robot “Ixnamiki Öme” obtained first place in the manipulation trials at RoboCup in Eindhoven, Netherlands.  RoboCup is the most important robotics competition in the world. It is divided into several specializations, such as: home robotics, soccer, aerial robots, and manipulation and rescue, which is where UP Aguascalientes participates.

In 2010, 2011 and 2012  “Ixnamiki” was selected “best robot in America” in RoboCup competitions held in Singapore, Turkey, and Mexico, respectively. In 2010, it was named first place overall, and was the first Mexican robot in the history of the competition to place in the worldwide Top Ten.o

 

In 2012 and again in 2013, we were Champions in the Latin American competition of Logistics Simulation, organized by Flexsim and the Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE). It took place in Colombia.
