Abstract

Higher education institutions have been responding to challenges that have led to a transformation of educational practices, particularly towards the implementation of active learning strategies, in order to create meaningful teaching and learning experiences, with increasingly more autonomous, cooperative and motivated students. In the particular case of Engineering, graduates should be able to develop their professional activities, dealing with a wide range of different types of problems that require the proficiency of technical and transversal competences.
