Engineering Sciences

Engineering Science is a profession that involves the application of different scientific principles and the associated mathematics that underlie engineering. It integrates engineering, biological, chemical, mathematical and physical sciences with the arts, humanities, social sciences and professions to face the most demanding challenges and promote the well-being of the global society.

That said, engineering is applied in order to merge multidisciplinary resources to propose and develop innovative and lasting solutions, and transform the latest scientific discoveries to allow new technologies. Engineering scientists research, develop and design new materials, devices, sensors and processes for a wide range of applications.

In the third year of the course, students take general subjects of various engineering professions in order to merge their multidisciplinary resources. While, in the fourth year, they concentrate on an area of ​​interest, in order to propose and develop innovative and lasting solutions, to transform the latest scientific discoveries, giving way to new technologies.

Why Engineering Sciences?

It requires Engineers and scientists able to innovate for the development of new products for a wide range of applications. This program is unique in providing a broad foundation in the associated sciences and mathematics that underlie engineering and provides student with the opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge in the area of ​​their choice through electives and thesis.

Finally, it is important to note that the graduate of Engineering Sciences not only seeks solutions in relation to new products in the market, but also seeks to improve existing processes for the optimal use of resources, applying their knowledge of materials, mathematics, physics and scientific principles acquired during the development of his career.

    "INTEC / PSU: 2 + 2" starts from August of 2009, with the possibility of becoming part of program every August (1). Students admitted to the programs included in the "2 + 2" will have an automatic provisional admission in PSU. During their training cycle at INTEC, they will receive the necessary advice and follow-up to comply with the requirements demanded by this university. Upon successful completion of the first two years, they will automatically enter the chosen career. The academic title will be issued by Penn State University and the Technological Institute of Santo Domingo (INTEC)

    Notes: (1) Students who enter in August will be assured to take 2 years in INTEC and 2 years in PSU. However, students who enter the institution outside of this date are not guaranteed this period of stay; it will vary according to the terms of the foreign university.
