Perfil de ingreso

Candidates for the program of Mechanic Engineering at Universidad Panamericana must be creative, imaginative, and interested in technology and industrial processes linked to the production of all kind of designs (automotive, biomedical, mechanic, etc.).

Also, they must be capable of abstracting and analyzing; they must be enthusiastic about studying the scientific and technological aspects of the mechanic system design, which means that they must be interested in mathematics and physics. 

They must be leaders and have a business vision in engineering activity as well as a high sense of responsibility and commitment to society to improve people’s quality of life.

Perfil de egreso

Graduates from Mechanic Engineering will have a solid base of knowledge; also, they will have an important development of professional competencies which will guarantee an excellent working performance in any industry or area of a company: in their own company or as executives of companies in the technology industry. 

Education in this type of Engineering will allow students to get into High-Tech Research Centers. 

What they learn of basic sciences, engineering sciences and engineering applied emphatically to the areas of materials, design, manufacture, mechanisms, and industrial robotics represents a perfect balance and provides a great analytical ability to treat complex problems of our time. 

Graduates will get experience from participating in projects and competing against national and foreign contenders. This experience and their acquired knowledge will foster their ability to adapt, propose and embark on new projects in the area of manufacturing and design technology.
