Theiler, Julio; Isla, Miguel; Arrillaga, Hugo; Ceirano, Eduardo; Lozeco, Cristobal
This paper explains the educational changes in the Water Resources Engineering program offered by the Universidad Nacional del Litoral in Santa Fe, Argentina, for the last 20 years at the undergraduate level. The need for modernizing the engineering teaching program occurred due to changes in the social system in which the concepts of development and sustainability reach their equilibrium through scientific and technical contributions. Educational change led to the creation of the environmental engineering career based on water resource engineering. Collaboration between the Instituto de Desarrollo Technologico para la Industria Quimica (INTEC) and the Facultad de Ingenieria Quimica (FIQ) articulated a curriculum framework of 5 years in length with modifications such as flexible correlative courses and a thesis as the final linking work.
