Abstract

This paper shows an engineering program specially designed to a private engineering school that aims to become the best one in the region. The Engineering Education Team of COPEC – Science and Education Research Council has designed this program that is knowledge centered and specially challenging, which integrates classical engineering approaches and real experience in order to achieve a high level of engineers ready to perform as professionals or researchers. It aims to form the Engineer – a professional that is capable to learn for life and be creative in many ways.
