Descripción
Modern Engineering degrees combine a necessary in-depth theoretical focus on basic disciplines of science and technology, with more applied activities, aimed at the promotion, not only of technical skills, but also of fundamental professional outcomes, so as to educate successful engineers. Among the typical applied actions in Engineering Education we can cite: practicals in laboratories with state-of-the-art technologies, project- based learning activities, collaborations in research projects, visits to industrial environments, professional practices, and the usual ?nal degree theses. Such combination between theoretical and practical teaching- learning strategies helps to con?gure interesting curricula for building well-trained professionals, but requires important dedication from a teaching sta? in continuous methodological recycling, as well as well-equipped laboratories and research centres with advanced technologies. All this makes Engineering studies especially expensive, which usually directly a?ects tuition costs and, in many cases, prevents talented aspirants from studying Engineering.
