Differentiating Factors of the School of Engineering

Since its foundation, the School of Engineering has been a leader in Colombia on forming engineers and research. Its programs have always been on the forefront of the country and have therefore been used as guidance by programs of other universities.

The School of Engineering shines by its academic rigor, the quality of its teaching and the continuous exercise of research; it excels by its leadership in the use and development of high technology in engineering, in particular, informatics and communications are present in all its activities.

According to studies contracted by the School of Engineering at Universidad de los Andes:

  • 80% of its alumni find a job within 3 months of graduation.
  • The variation of salary of an engineer from Uniandes against an engineer from another school. Hiring salary is very similar. After 5 years, engineers graduated from Uniandes have a salary up to 50% higher than their peers from other universities.
  • 10% of its alumni create their own business.
