ORJUELA-MENDEZ, Juan David; ARROYO-OSORIO, José Manuel  y  RODRIGUEZ-BARACALDO, Rodolfo. Current and future perspectives in teaching manufacturing area to engineering students. Ingeniería Mecánica [online]. 2013, vol.16, n.1, pp.59-71. ISSN 1815-5944.

This paper is a review of the challenges presented in the training of engineers to work in the manufacturing industry and the proposals of curricular and didactic kind to address the challenges identified. It is remarkable that the modern manufacturing industry is under a dynamic transformation gradually faster to meet the local and global demands. Several researchers have suggested that this dynamic should be reflected also in engineering education and indicate the urgent need to integrate practical knowledge into the curriculum. Also is found a rapid expansion and influence of information and communication technologies in education and are put into consideration the new learning styles of young people and their influence on classroom practices. Finally, are reported several structured approaches to evaluate, adjust and redesign the training actions, among others, project based learning.
