Basic Information

Revista Facultad de Ingenieria started in 1984 and is a publication of the School of Engineering at the University of Antioquia.
The main objective of the journal is to promote and stimulate the publishing of national and international scientific research results. The journal publishes original articles, resulting from scientific research, experimental and or simulation studies in engineering sciences, technology, and similar disciplines (Electronics, Telecommunications, Bioengineering, Electrical, Computer Science, Mechanical, Chemical, Environmental, Materials, Sanitary, Civil and Industrial Engineering).
In exceptional cases, the journal will publish insightful articles related to current important subjects, or revision articles representing a significant contribution to the contextualization of the state of the art in a known relevant topic. Case reports will only be published when those cases are related to studies in which the validity of a methodology is being proven for the first time, or when a significant contribution to the knowledge of an unexplored system can be proven.
All published articles have undergone a peer review process, carried out by experts recognized for their knowledge and contributions to the relevant field.

The journal is issued quarterly, in March, June, September and December.
