SPECIFIC SKILLS ASSESSMENT LEARNED BY STUDENTS OF BUILDING ENGINEERING AND TECHNICAL ARCHITECTURE IN TOPICS RELATING TO DURABILITY AND CONTROL OF CONCRETE STRUCTURES

Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (SPAIN)
In many university courses such as Building Engineering or Technical Architectural, the high density of the contents included in the curriculum, make the student, after graduation, unable to develop the skills already acquired and evaluated in the disciplines of the first courses.

From the Group of Educational Innovation at the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM) "Teaching of Structural Concrete" (GIEHE) we have conducted a study in which are valued specific skills acquired by students in the first years of career. We have worked with students from UPM fourth-year career and with Technical Architecture students who have completed their studies and also have completed the Adaptation Course of Technical Architecture to the Building Engineer. The work is part of the Educational Innovation Project funded by the UPM "Integration of training and assessment of generic and specific skills in structural concrete" We have evaluated specific skills learned in the areas of durability and control of structural concrete structures.

The results show that overall, students are not able to fully develop the skills already acquired earlier, even being these essential to their professional development.
Possibly, the large amount of content taught in these degrees together with a teaching and assessment of "flat profile", i.e., which are presented and evaluated with the same intensity as the fundamental and the accessory, are causes enough to cause these results.
