  • Manufacturing processes of the metalworking industry.

Upon completion of this program, you will have developed the following skills:

  • You will carry out new applications of mechanical components, devices, or systems in productive or service processes to improve their performance, using engineering design methodologies.
  • You will undertake technological prospective studies, thanks to your detailed knowledge on research results and development, tests and plans for market entry, of new materials, components, devices, or electromechanical systems, usable in productive or service processes.
  • You will assess the performance of mechanical components, devices, or systems used in existing productive or service processes, using physical, economic, and mathematical models.
  • You will create new business opportunities, resulting from successful innovative applications of mechanical components, devices, or systems, in productive or service systems, using new product development methodologies.
  • You will apply the operational principles of manufacturing mechanisms, devices, machines, and processes.
  • You will plan, control, and automize the variables of a productive system.
  • You will apply mathematical and physical concepts to the understanding of engineering phenomena and problems.
  • You will have bibliography and courses in English, immersion in general and specific oral and written communication skills of the area.
  • You will carry out internships and your Final Evaluation Project in order to develop excellent work relationships.

Upon completion of the program, you will have developed the following attitudes:

  • You will have a disposition for continuous improvement in all processes and products involved in your area of expertise.
  • You will generate a high-performance technological environment that improves the competitiveness of productive and service processes through innovative proposals for mechanical components, devices, or systems, using project portfolio methodologies.

Field of work

As an IMA graduate, you will be able to work in areas related to technology operation, updating, or creation; the implementation and management of manufacturing systems and processes; production planning, management, and control; and quality assurance of production processes, products, and services. You may also create your own business or become an independent consultant.
