The P+L looks for promoting the sustainable use of the natural resources, and it focuses to the diminution of remainders from the source and to the minimization of the energy consumption.

Therefore, it is necessary to have highly qualified personnel in matter of prevention of contamination in order to establish mechanisms that restrain the environmental, irreversible deterioration in most of the cases, and that these are directed to the restoration of the environment. In the search to help to restrain the excessive use of natural resources, the CMP+L-IPN is joining to these efforts through the Masters in Engineering in Cleaner Production, in order to form professionals that are able to make decisions and actions against the environmental problematic that today we are living.


Masters objectives

To form professionals able to make efficient the productive systems, under the approach of prevention of contamination, with which it is contributed of integral way to give solutions to the environmental problems.
