EG0007 Interdisciplinary Project I Spring and Fall 2 English

Interdisciplinary Projects (PI 1 from this point forward) is a course in which students work in teams in order to develop a project that attempts to solve a challenge proposed in the Sustainable Development Objectives (SDO). This work is carried out with the assistance of a professor who has already understood, analyzed, and defined the extent of the problem seeking to be resolved. The student is exposed to this moderately complex problem and is guided by the professor in conceptualizing, prototyping, and testing the proposed solutions. This way the students, together with the guidance of their professors, understand the importance of integrating interdisciplinary knowledge and engineering with aspects of the Peruvian social reality that affect the success of theproject.

EG0008 Interdisciplinary Project II Spring and Fall 2 English In PI 2, the student is exposed to problems of moderate complexity, in which the uncertainty surrounding the problems and the solution vary depending on the category and proposal chosen. Students will carry out projects under close supervision and guidance by the professor of the project. The course emphasizes the development of critical thinking and creative problem-solving in the design of solutions for defined problems. In this way, the course reinforces effective habits of communication and collaboration in order to accomplish the objectives of the proposal.
EG0009 Interdisciplinary Project III Spring and Fall 2 English In PI 3, the student is exposed to problems of high complexity, in which the uncertainty surrounding the problems and the solution vary depending on the category and proposal chosen. Students will carry out projects under close supervision and guidance by the professor of the project. The course emphasizes the development of critical thinking and creative problem-solving in the design of solutions for defined problems. In this way, the course reinforces effective habits of communication and collaboration in order to accomplish the objectives of the proposal.
- Thesis I Spring and Fall 4-6 English The course aims to guide students to begin the development and execution of their thesis. They will be given schemes, forms and structures on how to organize their research and write their thesis. The student will present possible thesis topics to faculty and university professors, who will be evaluated for their first presentation as well as to develop the state of the art and theoretical framework of this one.
- Thesis II Spring and Fall 4-6 English This course seeks to prepare students for the execution of the research design previously conceived in the first part of their Thesis or Capstone Project. During this course, students will implement, model, simulate, conduct experiments conduct field visits, apply surveys, etc. depending on the nature of the research work.

Spring and Fall 3 English This course reflects about the long-term economic and sociopolitical processes that shaped Peru from 1960 up to the present and discusses them within the context of the challenges that it still has to overcome. The goal is to present and characterize the main historical events of the last 60 years of Peruvian history while introducing concepts related to Peru ́s historical and geographical conditions.
GH0014 Governance Culture and Power Distribution Spring and Fall 3 English The objective of the course is that the student understands the interrelation that exists between the political systems of the countries and their economies. It discusses democratic governability as an attribute of good governance and analyzes government and institutions as power distribution mechanisms. From the analysis of the different possible institutional arrangements, the relationship between the State and society is deepened, and the way in which market failures are dealt with, on the one hand, and with the failures of the State, on the other. Finally, we discuss the governance conditions that should be in place to ensure development in a context such as Peru, marked by poor citizenship and great cultural diversity.
GH0012 Developing Economies Spring and Fall 3 English This course seeks to introduce the student to the general concepts of micro and macroeconomics with the aim that they can explain processes of reality from the economic logic. In this sense, they will apply their new knowledge to analyze specific cases of real life, related to public policies and the development of countries. For each of these cases, a critical perspective is presented that relativizes the economic logic and questions how the improvement of the economy has become the main objective of policies, even to the detriment of democracy. With this background, the students will analyze some socioeconomic problems of the Peruvian reality and will relate economy and politics.

ME0036 Selected topics in Mechanical Engineering Spring and Fall 4 English One of the most important aspects of the development of these new areas as biomechanics is that it better foreshadows human relations with the environment. Prosthesis is the field dedicated to replacing lost organs for new ones: artificial arms, legs, etc. The orthosis, on the other hand, is the field dedicated to improving the performance of an organ that is present but not working very well: knee / hip implants, reconstruction of ligaments, etc. This second part is probably more important in this course due to the incidence of falls / slips in the elderly. This course is about the mechanics of life. We cover the basic principles of mechanics, such as work, power and energy storage, and some of the basic material properties that allow living things not to only hold, but also push the body forward when walking, running and jump. The course introduces students to the concepts of mechanics that are apply to human movement. The student must understand the principles mechanical and anatomical that govern movement and develop the ability to link the structure and biomaterials of the human body with its function from a mechanical perspective. At the end of this course, it is desired that each student can: 1) describe, apply and quantify linear characteristics and angles of movement with precise mechanical and anatomical terminology and well defined; 2) apply the quantitative relationships between angular motion and linear of a rotating body; and effect between force and linear-angular momentum; 3) apply concepts of tissue mechanics, and 4) apply and explain the "potential interaction” (affordance) which means a biomechanics based on the behavior.
