In this paper we present infrared thermography as a technique to aid the process of teaching-learning in subjects related with other different objects of the University as well as with research activities. This paper recommends general procedures for reliable , qualitative and quantitative thermographic measurements for different applications.. The technique uses relative measurements of infrared thermal radiation energy. Thermal radiation is one type of electromagnetic radiation that is continuously emitted by all substances due to molecular and atomic agitation associated with the internal energy of the material. To be able to measure the temperature and carry out quantitative analyses it is necessary to have different knowledge and skills. To achieve this objective we have developed a series of exercises for use in practice sessions. The prospective students can take part in individual exercises defined according to available research projects. A flexible system of credits is prepared and some of students may became particular grade teacher.
