Universidad Panamericana | Faculty of Engineering Academic Offering Bachelor's Degree in Engineering Innovation and Design Guadalajara

Innovation and Design Engineering

At Ingeniería en Innovación y Diseño we combine the creativity of a designer with the analytical and technical capacity of an engineer.


That is why, in our curriculum, we contemplate the entire creative process of the life of a product. This starts with the detection of a need, the development and prototyping of the product, and ends with the production and sale of the product.


For a better experience and academic development, our students study design, marketing, new materials and consumer psychology. The aim of these subjects is to generate functional and sustainable products, which optimise costs, resources and have a positive impact.


Our professors are researchers recognised by the National System of Researchers, who provide a personalised education of academic excellence.


At Innovation and Design we have the following advantages in our programme:


  • Unique programme in Mexico
  • Laboratories recognised and certified as High Impact for their technological grade
  • Industry-related projects
  • Triple certification in important areas of design and engineering
  • International experiences, exchanges, competitions and congresses
  • 4+1 Programme, our students graduate with two degrees in four years, plus one year of specialisation.

"Studying at Universidad Panamericana meant being part of professionals that I admired for their human warmth and passion for their profession. That is why I am grateful to be able to teach classes to colleagues who decided to study the career and follow the prestige of the Universidad Panamericana".

Pilar Hernández, class of 2007, Guadalajara campus.

"By studying at Universidad Panamericana, I understood that failures, although strong, are the best time to demonstrate my full potential and face challenges, turning them into professional challenges from a human perspective."

Lolis Sainz, class of 2010, Guadalajara campus.

"Studying Innovation and Design was a daily challenge to bring out the best in me. Each of the lessons I learned in the projects, I could also use in my daily life. Also, by experiencing my projects with real companies, I gained professional experience in the industry before graduating.

Javier Laddaga, class of 2018, Guadalajara campus.

"My goals were to create, help and grow personally. In Innovation and Design I learned the necessary tools for my goals. It is worth mentioning that I had the best professors who always demanded academic and human excellence.
