It has 12,400 students in 8 different schools located on two campuses: one in Santiago, the capital city of Chile, and the other in the coastal city of Viña del Mar.
The Faculty of Engineering and Sciences (FES) is one of the leading schools of engineering in Chile, which has experienced rapid growth over the last ten years. It has about 4,000 students and more than 100 full-time professors. The FES offers seven undergraduate engineering degrees, in addition to its M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs. The FES brings together an open-minded community of scholars who combine fundamental and applied research to develop creative and innovative projects. These projects are expected not only to advance the frontier knowledge but also to contribute toward developing solutions that can help to reach our sustainable development goals.
The Industrial Engineering and Operations Group, within the FES, is one of the leading operations research groups in the region, attracting some of the best students to our undergraduate program, as well as... our Ph.D. and Masters programs in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research. The nine researchers in this group consistently participate in relevant national and international research projects, both theoretical and applied in nature, with a strong global collaboration network. The areas of research include theoretical areas in operations research like stochastic/network/convex optimization, stochastic processes, approximation algorithms, game theory and, combinatorial analysis. Likewise, application areas include energy management, health services, mining, data science, production operations, marketing, forestry, and transportation. Furthermore, the group has tight connections and works close to the operations group at our Business School, ranked as one of the best in Latin-America.
