Engineering; Design, and Innovation; Robotic Engineering; Biomedical Engineering; Biological Engineering; Geosciences; Engineering Mathematics; and Engineering and Architecture – these are just some of the subjects you can explore with UC Engineering.

After completing the four-year major and minor courses, in addition to other requirements, students will be granted a Bachelor of Engineering Sciences. The profile of each graduate will be nearly unique and will depend on the chosen major/minor combination.

What are majors and minors?

MAJOR: A concentration of courses equivalent to 60 SCT Chile, conformed by a coherent DISCIPLINARY or INTERDISCIPLINARY academic plan.

MINOR: A concentration of courses equivalent to 30 SCT Chile, conformed by a coherent academic plan in a determined discipline and that can either add BREADTH or DEPTH to the student’s chosen major.
