SCHMAL, S., Rodolfo. Considerations on a program for the development of generic competences in Engineering. Cienc. docencia tecnol. [online]. 2012, n.44, pp. 239-262. ISSN 1851-1716.
In this article, the design and results of a transversal competences program implemented since 2005 at the University of Talca, are reviewed for a particular career, Business Computer Engineering. This review was made from surveys applied to students and through a joint consideration of the outputs by the academic staff of the career, following a specific methodology. A proposal of changes focused on the reduction of the program and its redistribution in the career curriculum was made. We conclude on the need for substantial changes in the program to enable generic skills contextualized within the interests of he career.
