Uninorte is an innovative and forward-looking university, recognized as the most outstanding institution of higher learning in the Atlantic Region of Colombia. Recently, our College of Engineering received an acknowledgement which is unique in Colombia: we are proud to be the 3rd University in Latin America to receive an ABET, Inc. accreditation for all of our undergraduate engineering programs: Civil Engineering, Systems Engineering, Electric Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. ABET Inc. is the most recognized Engineering Accreditation Commission in the world, with headquarters in Baltimore MD., United States.


“Uninorte en Verano” is an institutional program that emerged in 2007 as a strategy that enables the internationalization of the Universidad del Norte in its teaching, research and extension. “Uninorte en Verano” integrates different activities during the inter-semester period, including academic courses, workshops, seminars and cultural, artistic and recreational activities, involving professionals from several areas, students and other local and foreign participants. All these actions aim for the exchange of knowledge, culture, science, research, learning and recreation.


Our ongoing development of interdisciplinary research centers and collaboration with international academic and industrial partners encourage scholars at Uninorte to pursue research in our strategic fields: Energy (emphasis on renewable energies, energetic efficiency, and energetic policy), Global Health (emphasis on infectious diseases, chronic diseases and public health), Human Development and Quality of Life (emphasis on childhood development and education).
