Escudo ITD 2007 Chemical Engineering International Symposium
Instituto Tecnológico de Durango


Every two years, the Chemical Engineering Faculty of the Instituto Tecnológico de Durango had been organizing the Chemical Engineering International Symposium, in order to provide students and professionals with lectures and courses given by international speakers in different areas of Chemical Engineering.

The 2007 edition of ChEIS, with the tagline “A Global Challenge”, focused mainly in the challenges to be faced in the near future, in particular global warming and climate change. In both cases, the scientific and engineering community has the necessary knowledge and the responsibility of developing technologies to prevent or mitigate these issues.

Our world is one and the same. Its environment is not divided by country borders. The challenge is global. The challenge calls for all of us.


This Symposium was dedicated to Ing. Carlos Alfonso Hernández Sotelo, a recently retired member of the Chemical Engineering Faculty at ITD. During the Opening Ceremony, a video was shown, highlighting Ing. Sotelo's accomplishments.
