The project of course in the formation of professional competences in students of mechanical engineering. Ingeniería Mecánica [online]. 2011, vol.14, n.2, pp. 119-128. ISSN 1815-5944.
The professional specific competences constitute a range of competences associated fundamentally with the action and apprehension of the reality. These competences are very influence by the professional formation and experience in the profession. For that reason, in the case of professional specific competences is very important and necessary an organized formation professional characterized by the accumulation of learning and abilities in specific tasks linked with the profession. In the present paper, two experiences in projects of courses developed by engineering students in the learning process are showed; moreover some results in the formation and development of professional specific competences associated with mentioned projects are illustrated. These experiences allow affirming that the professional specific competences can be developed during the professional formation with the introduction in the learning process of certain activities practical-professionals. In this sense, the practical activity in the academic with reproduction of frequent problems in relation with the profession is a very appropriate environment to develop the formation of professional specific competences demand in the current context of action for the graduate of careers of mechanical engineering.
