TRAINING AND PROFESSIONAL ACTIVITY IN ENGINEERING IN SPAIN

J.M. Cámara-Zapata

Universidad Miguel Hernández (SPAIN)
Engineering education must adapt to meet the challenges of the 21st century. The basic subjects are the first to be studied and the quality of their teaching can reduce student attrition. It should motivate students to face the basic subjects successfully. It is a widely spread misconception to consider the basic subjects as a filter and assume that they add nothing to the professional development of engineers.
In this paper, we examine the training, instruction and professional activity of graduates in engineering. The need for change in engineering education can be better understood using the symbolism of a tree. Universities with these studies can be considered as the nurseries. Basic training is the trunk of the tree and allows these workers to work in various fields. An instruction that fosters teamwork facilitates the activity of these professionals. Improving the knowledge of engineering education within private companies can promote employment for these graduates.
