The current teaching methods are focused on results in the short term. However, learning must be focused on the acquisition of skills and abilities to be developed in the future. This case study has assessed the long-term impacts and the effective teaching in the subject of Topography and Cartography in Civil and Territorial Engineering Degree (Technical University of Madrid). To this end, a questionnaire with 10 questions was disseminated on two different populations. On the one hand, a total of 45 students who had just completed the course on Topography and Cartography. On the other hand, the same questionnaire was conducted on a total of 166 students at the end of their Degree who had taken the same subject more than two years ago. The results from two years experience (2016 and 2017) were compared. The students who just finished the course reached 12.7% higher results than those of the students at the end of their Degree (75.69 % of total correct answers). The study allows us to obtain information about which concepts and teaching activities have lasted over time and which have been easily forgotten. This data will be of great importance in the annual review of Topography and Cartography subject.
