Objectives

Society´s development is associated with its infrastructure development and Electric Engineering makes its contribution based on design, planning and operation of the electric sector in the areas of generation, transmission and distribution of electric energy; and in the development of the telecommunications sector. Electric Engineering contributes with its technological developments to make use of electricity in industries, households, massive electrical transportation (clean transportation) and in all of the daily activities, performed by human beings.

Programmatic Objective 1: As an individual.

Promotes in students, environmental, ethical and professional responsibility with society; a systemic thought and critical analysis of its environment.

Programmatic Objective 2: As an electrical and electronic engineer: Develop competencies in students that enables them to acquire, design, evaluate, integrate, analyze, diagnose and develop solutions since electric/electronic engineering so as to generate social wealth and welfare, including the state of the art as part of their discipline and taking advantage of the opportunities to innovate autonomously together with a continuous learning capacity.

Programmatic Objective 3: As an engineer in society. Develop in students the capacity to efficiently identify, formulate, and solve society´s complex problems within an interdisciplinary framework, which involves communication skills and team work.

Study Plan

The plan includes all of the education requirements, not only of optimal professionals, but also of upright, participatory and ethical citizens. It also includes a set of courses in the fields of humanities and social sciences and encourages the responsibilities of students regarding their own education, through a high level of electivity so as to develop towards particular professional profiles.

The Study Plan, since the creation of the program at Universidad de Los Andes, proposed a wide spectrum syllabus in Electric Engineering, emphasizing it on a comprehensive education and use of basic sciences, being in this way, less professionalized and specialized. This coincides with the consolidation aspects of the master’s degree and specialization programs, which respond in a more adequate way to the professionalized needs of the industry, once the professional has been able to insert himself in the work field.

This program is inspired by the following principles:

A basic, broad and rigurous education of the engineer more than one being specialized, narrow or procedural: The program´s purpose is for the electrical engineering alumni of Universidad de Los Andes to continue learning and updating themselves during their professional life. The undergraduate program is seen as the first stage of a continuous education process. Students are trained and specialized directly in the work place or in the university or other institution. During this stage of the student´s education, it is important that the future professional learns to learn by itself, rigorously understanding the principles and science methods, where electrical engineering is based on, more than memorizing formulas or specific procedures. For this purpose, students must learn to efficiently use all of the available resources at the university such as professors, laboratories, libraries, audiovisual and virtual means, computers, internet, etc.

Comprehension based on the balance between theory understanding and the skill to propose and solve concrete problems: The engineer must develop qualifications and skills that include:

Analysis and the consistent dexterity for the application of techniques and analytical methods based on models and mathematical procedures.

Synthesis and creative use of diverse design processes for solving specific problems that use multiple technologies based on the application of a great variety of principles and physical laws. Knowledge based primarily on the personal effort of the student together with team work: Learning must be the result of the student´s personal effort while carrying out precise tasks that range from an adequate reading and critical understanding of texts up to the elaboration of an appropriate analytical case proposal.
