Universidad Autonoma de Baja California (MEXICO)
Aerospace engineering is a recent program at the University Autonomous of Baja California (UABC). This program was created in 2009 due the rapidly increased by the aerospace industry. Since August of 2009, it has been teaching in the School of the Engineering Sciences and Technology (ECITEC) at the UABC.

The UABC in the rectory period 2015-2016 has prioritized, in the short term, the development of building projects for those programs that being available still do not have the recognition of its quality. In order to achieve this goal those programs have started with the self-evaluation process to obtain recognition of its quality by an external evaluator.

The chosen external evaluator is the CIEES (Inter-institutional Committees for the Evaluation of Higher Education). This organism has conditions to evaluate a program, being one of the most important: that the program has at least one generation of graduates. Fulfilling with all the conditions, the process of self-evaluation for Aerospace Engineering started in March of 2015.
This document describes the experiences of the educational process actors (students, professors and the administrative staff) during the self-evaluation as well as the program strengths and opportunity areas.

Finally, it informs the strategies employed to cover the total of the indicators requested by the organism, that have helped to implement a continuous improvement culture in the Aerospace Engineering Program.
