    Major in Computing and Software Engineering

    A Major in Computing develops the ability to apply solutions to complex problems in the industry and developing innovative projects through the design and modeling of computer processes. It seeks to position graduates as leaders in the most important fields in the XXI century, such as social networks, health, education, urban planning, robotics, astronomy, company networks, finances, marketing, optimization, among others. In all these areas the computational component has become fundamental, and, often, it is the only possibility for major advancement and radical solutions. Our solid academic training will train students as researchers, developers and managers, able to contribute and be innovative in different areas.
    Graduates of Engineering Sciences with a Major in Computing will be trained to model complex problems, plus design and implement systems, processes, components and computer programs to be carried out in different industrial fields and research.

    Degrees

    Our Department offers three Degree Programs. Two are within the framework of Industrial Civil Engineering, and one in traditional Civil Engineering. This allows Department students to choose the specialization they prefer:

    Industrial Civil Engineering, Diploma in Engineering in Information Technology

    The course catalogue of the Diploma in Engineering in Information Technology is geared towards preparing a highly technologically trained professional, with knowledge in human relations. In addition, it allows for multidisciplinary interaction in fundamental areas in the management of IT projects. Training will mainly enable graduates to understand the human and technical aspects related to the manner in which information is generated and used by organizations. Plus, it will allow them to manage the required information in order to reach the organization’s operational objectives and strategic mission, and understand old and new Information Technology, in order to use them to be more efficient inside the organization.

    The graduate will be qualified to work in multifunctional teams, especially in the phases of analysis, design, management and information system insertion in companies and all types of governmental institutions. Graduates will also be able to tackle all kinds of problems in the field of Information Technology, among them: economic technical evaluation, conceptual design and detailed design projects in the field, the evaluation of computing technologies, analysis and execution of software projects, management and control of IT projects, definition and maintenance of strategies and access to information policies, the proposal, specification and acquisition of information systems, the study of processes in organizations and their identification for improvement, and the management of personnel in the design, development, implementation and exploitation of systems. Each year the UC School of Engineering graduates an average of 50 professionals in this specialty.

    Industrial Civil Engineering, Diploma in Computer Engineering

    The educational objectives of this program are:

    1. Our graduates will be leaders and competent professionals in Computer Engineering, based on his/her knowledge and abilities in the engineering sciences and the complete understanding of the discipline’s foundations.

     

    2. Our graduates will solve and manage complex computer engineering problems, based on a deep understanding of the relationship between technology and organizations, plus applying scientific analysis that takes into account its social, ethical and economic impact.

     

    3. Our graduates will identify opportunities for new products and services, and will carry out that idea from the moment of its conception to its implementation in the form of a company or a small business.

     

    4. Our graduates will participate and collaborate in different teams and contexts, based on his/her ability to communicate effectively and flexibly, and from his/her broad and diverse education exceed the limits of their discipline.

     

    5. Our graduates will show interest in furthering their education in computer engineering or other specialties through constant education.

     

    Each year the UC School of Engineering graduates an average of 15 professionals in this specialty.

     

    Computer Civil Engineering

    The Degree in Computer Civil Engineering is geared towards preparing a professional with advanced knowledge in computing, who, via his/her general training in engineering, his/her technical knowledge and scientific formation, will be able to spearhead research and create new computer products, specifically computer systems and software. Graduates will be able to design and analyze algorithms in different fields of computing or those related to it (numerical calculation, numerical analysis, optimization, computer algebra, among others), and will be creative in finding solutions to new computational problems.

    This degree is geared towards engineering students that are specially interested in the scientific and technical aspects of computing. Each year the UC School of Engineering graduates an average of 15 professionals in this specialty.

  • Postgraduate Programs

    Masters Research Program

    The Master’s in Engineering Sciences offers the opportunity for advanced studies in the field of Computer Science and includes training in the development of a thesis. A research paper must be written by every student to evaluate his/her capacity for this type of work. The Master’s thesis must be an original paper in the field or in its methodology.

    The Master’s in Engineering is a postgraduate specialization program that emphasizes complex problem solving in the practice of Computer Engineering. The study program consists of approximately nine postgraduate courses in the specialized field chosen from a course catalogue in each area, plus about three optional postgraduate courses from the School or other Faculties, and one graduate activity worth 30 credits.

    Our Department offers five areas of specialization for the Master’s in Engineering Sciences and Master’s in Engineering Programs: Software Engineering; Artificial Intelligence; Robotics and Computer Vision; Data Laboratory; Information Technology; and Educational Computing and Collaborative Systems. For information on the admission requirements to these programs, visit the postgraduate site of our School of Engineering.

  • Doctoral Research Program

    The aim of our Doctoral Program in Engineering Sciences is to give students advanced knowledge in the area of Computer Science, via a systematic course program and a research project that leads into a Doctoral thesis. The National Postgraduate Certification Commission (CONAP) in Chile has certified the Doctorate in Engineering Sciences, specialized in Computer Science, for four consecutive years.

     

    This means that our Doctoral Program has been recognized as one of the best of its kind in Chile. The five research fields of study for the Doctoral Program at the Department are: Software Engineering (architecture and processes); Artificial Intelligence; Robotics and Computer Vision; Data Laboratory; Information Technology; and Educational Computing and Collaborative Systems. For information on the admission requirements to these programs, visit the postgraduate site of our School of Engineering.
