Engineering tools

One of the distinctives skills of the Solute engineers is the knowledge of multiple computer tools and their capacity to learn due to their continuous training.

Gracias a la formación continua facilitada por la empresa, las exigencias con las que se han encontrado los ingenieros en cada proyecto y la inquietud por mejorar y fortalecer los conocimientos adquiridos, los ingenieros de Solute son expertos en el uso de las siguientes herramientas:
