Vaggione, Ana María Graffigna; Ghilardi, Lucía Mabel; Zarracán, María Amelin Dávila
Tuning Journal for Higher Education, v7 n2 p25-42 May 2020
This work presents the advances being made on a research project addressing curriculum processes for the development of competencies at the San Juan National University's Faculty of Engineering (Argentina) in the framework of institutional policies that seek to make its programs of study appropriate for the second generation of accreditation standards. This is an exploratory, descriptive and interpretative study that is currently in the analytic phase, during which time we have carried out a characterization of the study plans currently in force for seven engineering programs in place at the university. In this sense, we describe both the institutional transformation related to the creation of accreditation standards and the perspectives of institutional actors as regards the curriculum design of the San Juan National University Faculty of Engineering's programs, analyzing the institutional dynamic that emerges from said process.
