Chemical Engineering has improved our quality of life for more than a century through the design of innovative products and processes. Chemical engineers have participated in developing new materials, technologies based on biological systems, treatments for diseases, environment protection, power generation technologies, and the optimization of renewable and non-renewable resources.

The Chemical Engineering undergraduate program of Universidad de los Andes takes actions aimed at its graduates so they:

  1. Apply in a creative way, the chemical engineering principles solving the problems of our society.
  2. Apply the chemical engineering tools and methods in the analysis and design of products and processes, using an approach that covers aspects from the molecular to the macroscopic scale.
  3. Assume leadership positions in the specific areas of engineering and other professional fields.
  4. Demonstrate a high sense of responsibility, autonomy and open-mindedness, as well as a commitment to continuous learning and an ethical practice of the profession.


We want to enroll the best students in the country. All information regarding financing plans can be found at the Office of Financial Support website.
