This research project was established based on the study of continuous improvement of the accreditation process at a university level, as current and within the most significant and complex undergraduate training based on professional skills, requiring constant evaluation through continuous improvement and periodic processes of accreditation of the educational program most universities, such as the Universidad Autónoma de Baja California (UABC) actively promote educational programs that can measure evidence of their good quality and progress by recognized organizations of higher education accreditation. Peer review, service and reward to society uphold the universities’ educational model, which seeks the integral formation of students, generating relevant and permanent learning, working in a group with peers and in relation to the surrounding environment. These regards guide the institutional practice and anticipate that the adoption of technological resources would have a good chance of acceptance in the processes of accreditation and continuous improvement.
