International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in the Digital Age (CELDA) (15th, Budapest, Hungary, Oct 21-23, 2018)
The development of transversal competences is essential for the success of engineers, who need to have the ability to adapt to the new and changing demands posed by modern society and scientific advances. It is a challenge for professors to teach and evaluate transversal competences, since such competences are related to attitudes and values. We present a program, held in an Engineering school, with the goal of motivating young people in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) areas. Results from the designed initiatives pointed to success in the development of transversal competences, including problem solving, communication, leadership, teamwork, self-management, creativity and innovation.
