Methodology

Presence based

Each class is planned so that the theoretical and practical contents that motivate the interaction between the teacher and the students can be developed.

The methodology proposed, motivates the participation of students in an exchange of ideas, knowledge and perspectives. It also combines several complementary learning methods and strategies such as use of highly equipped laboratories, expert talks, participation in scientific fairs, preparation of real projects, motivation for self-learning and carrying out conferences, among others.

This in order to enhance knowledge and thus generate in the student better criteria, experiences, perspectives and knowledge that lead him to a training as complete and comprehensive as possible.

Virtual

Our educational model promotes a constructivist learning in which the programming of learning activities does not imply schedules for all participants; each one carries out his/her activities according to his availability of time and the guidelines established in the courses approved by the academic entity to which he/she belongs to. The emphasis of the process is on the autonomous activity of the student with the guidance of the teacher and the support and exchange of knowledge with other participants.

The learning cycle consists of a sequence of activities that begin with an exploratory stage, which leads to the study of concrete materials and then continues with activities that facilitate conceptual development from the experiences collected by the students during the exploration. Activities are then developed to apply and evaluate the understanding of these concepts.
