To form professionals with a strong scientific and technological interdisciplinary background allowing them to develop skills in order to design, create, transfer and adapt information technologies whose application in the productive field boosts the increase of quality, productivity, feasibility and sustainability of products and services.
In order to become an extremely competent Engineer in Informatics, it is important for the candidate to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills, values and attitudes that ensure an optimal and professional achievement in his/her studies and lead to a successful integration in the professional field.
From the above the candidate with vocation and attitude to study the major in Informatics Engineering must cover the following aspects.
To be part of any of the 5 study programmes at UPIICSA, it is mandatory to have basic skills and knowledge acquired in high school to ensure an optimal and professional achievement in university. In addition, the candidate must have the necessary attitudes and values to support the development of the learning process, assuming an effective position to study and work on activities, projects and tasks required according to the objective and vision of the UPIICSA as well as with the IPN ethos and principles.
The candidate who concludes the 2009 Informatics Engineering academic programme will be an interdisciplinary professional able to work in any kind of public or private organisation implementing and administrating cutting edge software systems, giving voice and data transmission solutions, applying normalisation methodologies and quality in the development and administration of hardware and software process to ensure safety and propose planned processes to innovate in the field of Informatics Engineering through research and hardware and software solutions development according to the current needs, which involves having an integral formation after concluding the study programme in the following topics:
Describe technological tendencies.
llustrate life cycle systems.
Formulate and evaluate technological innovation projects in informatics and software and hardware development.
Comply in a timely manner with each of the stages of the admission process highlighted in the call for entry to the university system at IPN and show documents such as:
The graduate will be able to work in any place where Informatics Engineering problems need solutions with the use of software and hardware integration, projects management, and fundamental cutting edge software development either in the public or private industry.
One of the generic characteristics in the work field is the existence of companies with either their own area or outsourcing dedicated to:
The implementation and support of webs and communication systems.
From the three point above, it is important to mention that the main characteristics in the work environment are:
