Industrial design in the region has two main aspects, integration into industry and entrepreneurship. Both applications have been established over the 14 years since the program began its operation, and currently industrial designers can be found in industrial fields such as aerospace, electronics, automotive and furniture, among others; similarly, the undertakings carried out through design firms participate in sectors such as the wine industry, restaurant, brewery, prototypes and small-scale manufacturing, shop windows, exhibition stands, personalized objects and accessories, smart devices, among others.

The Bachelor in Industrial Design offers applicants to develop creative skills such as drawing and manual modeling, digital such as digital 3D modeling and manufacturing plans, as well as manuals such as handling ceramic materials, carpentry and metalworking among others, with which innovative products can be generated that enrich the lives of those who use them.

To certify the Bachelor in Industrial Design, the student must take 350 required credits, which include 15 credits of professional practices and a minimum of 60 elective credits that can be taken through various accreditation modalities, covering a total of 410 credits.
