This course focuses on the key topics of conduction, convection, and radiation. One-dimension conduction is studied analytically for steady and transient state conditions whereas twodimension conduction problems are analyzed basically using numerical and graphical methods. Forced convection analyses are considered for internal and external (turbulent and laminar) flows while natural and mixed convection conditions are considered only for external flows. Additionally, the course is complemented with the analysis of radiation problems for black and gray surfaces separated by nonparticipating media. During the development of the course, the students are encouraged to use the Engineering Equation Solver (EES) software in the Engineering problem solutions.

Having learned the properties and basic applications of the main material families, this course seeks to introduce the student into the world of structures control in its most relevant scales. This approach allows giving more precision to the selection criteria for the design of processes and products, taking into account the internal structure of the material. It is also desired that the knowledge acquired is contextualized with the national technological reality and that it is used to motivate innovation. The objective of the course will be achieved through the study of the different families of materials, particularly metals, ceramics and polymers. This study will be carried out with the following sequence: i. Generalities-introduction, ii. Structures, iii. Properties, iv. Manipulation-volumetric and superficial properties, v. Composites from this material family. The execution of projects will be the application center and contextualization of the gained knowledge.

IMEC-4214 Transferencia de Calor Avanzada

This is a first course of computer networks. Under a top-down approach, it presents each one of the levels that compose the protocol stack of a network, with special emphasis in TCP/IP that is in the base of the Internet. TCP/IP is used like example of real implementation of the fundamental concepts of networks, without forgetting the protocols and implementations of different network architectures. Specificities are additionally introduced to understand how to adapt these concepts to new technologies like wireless networks. Special emphasis is put to understand the impact on both security and performance of current networking implementations.,English,- The course has two equally important components: theoretical lectures and practical laboratories. Laboratories not only illustrate the practical part of the most important concepts seen in the theoretical classes, but also they complement in themes that seek to give to students new skills useful in the practice of the profession.

IMEC-4700 Seminario de Magíster

The scientific research is derived from a question or problem that has not been studied before, or the response of which is not satisfactory yet. A research is far more than a simple search for information, it is the consequence of the systematic application of the scientific method, with the final purpose of contributing to the solution of problems that affect society. A research requires goals, planning, hypotheses, critical assumptions and information generation and interpretation. 

The general purpose of this course is to provide students the tools for the sound exercise of research, within the framework of the scientific method. The articulation of these tools by students will be evaluated based on the research proposal and its defense before a panel of evaluators.
