  • Develop research as an essential function of the University to build a distinctive institutional competence in this field.
  • Highlight the research activities due to their quality, their internal and external relevance, their continuity in the medium and long term and their scientific and economic sustainability.
  • Introduce the processes of formative research in the field of curricular designs, both undergraduate and postgraduate, as an essential means to achieve quality in learning processes.
  • Execute research projects of scientific-technical and social relevance, particularly for the support to national companies and the economic development of the country.
  • Present the results of research projects through publications in indexed journals and participation in international congresses.
