Engineering Studies

A Masters degree is an academic degree awarded to individuals who successfully denote a higher level of expertise. There are two main types of Masters - taught and research.

The process of creating and maintaining new machines, structures and more using mathematics as well as social, economic and scientific knowledge is known as engineering. There are many subdivisions of engineering dealing with everything from the environment to electricity.

 

South America is the fourth largest continent. It is divided politically into 12 independent countries. South America is home to the majestic Andes mountain range and the mysterious Amazon River. The world's largest rain forest, with millions of species of exotic animals, is also found in South America.

Master in Production and Operations Colombian companies are now competing with "World Class Companies", with high standards for innovation, productivity and quality of their products and / or services, which is necessary to generate strategies to close the gap to achieve excellence in all economic sectors in which they want to participate. Organizations are aware of the importance of training professional staff on knowledge and the adaptation of new methodologies in production and operations that are crucial today given the high levels of competition and the increase of resources. The areas of production and operations have been modernizing their methods, management and technology, seeking to optimize productivity, increasing efficiency, effectiveness and flexibility of production systems and supply operations and distribution nationwide and internationally. Failure to develop, with high quality, companies in the region will continue to lose market share to the multinationals and the import of manufactured goods delivered, in a timely manner and very low prices. Because of this the Sergio Arboleda University has developed the Master's program in the area of ​​production and operations to human resource training with high levels of knowledge and management, able to achieve competitive companies with innovative products and services that generate higher value added . The Master Production and Operations specific aims the design and management of production systems and operations and national chains and international production, for which we developed a training program that includes technology for modeling and simulation, advanced training in logistics and quality and also an area...

ENVIRONMENTS- ECONOMIC GEOLOGY-SOIL MANAGEMENT-GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING-GEOMATERIAL-NANOMATERIAL

IMACS is an integrated Master of Science designed by 4 institutions with a wide range of leadership in clay science :

the University of Poitiers (UP) in France (co-ordinator), the University of Aveiro (UA) in Portugal, the Technical University of Crete (TUC) (Chania) in Greece, the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) (Porto Alegre) in Brazil.

Why clay minerals?

Interest in clays results from their common availability, and their unique physical and chemical properties. No other minerals currently attract so great an interest.

In addition to their conventional ancient use as bricks, tiles, ceramics and for paper coating and waste management more recently, clays have found many novel applications. Clay minerals have provided a boost in technology because they are inexpensive nanomaterials, and as such, they have a huge potential for the synthesis of polymer nanocomposites with superior mechanical and thermal properties. The optimisation of adsorption, colloidal and rheological properties also opens prospects of using clay minerals for medical uses, pollution control, and environmental protection. Clay minerals play a role in economic geology (both as an important mineral resource and in energy resource exploration) and soil management. Clays also have many negative effects in geotechnical engineering, manifested in the form of landslides, mudflows, and the deterioration of clay-based construction materials.... [-]
