Tec21 Model: Tec challenges you
Our challenge-based educational model develops the competencies that will enable you to face up to the opportunities and challenges of the 21st century creatively and strategically.
With an education that will accompany you throughout your life, our aim is for you to be aware of the needs of the environment, acquire a systemic vision of problems and develop the capacity to solve them.
Right from the first semester, you will be participating in activities to develop your capacity to identify opportunities, find resources, take risks and recover from failure.
In addition, the model empowers you to make more decisions about your university studies as you progress, in order to develop a unique profile.
The three stages of the model
Acquire the basic knowledge of your area and face challenges to reinforce this knowledge.
Develop the competencies relevant to your degree through more focused courses and challenges.
Give a personal touch to your degree program through specialization within or outside your discipline.
A New Generation
Engineering is directly linked to innumerable developments, economic changes and technological advancements that we have experienced as a society. By choosing any of the degrees grouped in this track, you will learn how to apply the principles of engineering to design systems, devices and products that will efficiently and sustainably solve problems in industrial, commercial and scientific contexts, in order to contribute to the enhancement of people’s quality of life.
Engineers trained at Tec have a renewed profile and a forward-looking vision. You will find them grouped together in four tracks or lines of development: Computer Studies and Information Technologies; Innovation and Transformation; Bioengineering; and Chemical Processes and Applied Science. Each track addresses, from its own environment, society’s enormous challenges, which require solutions backed by technology-based knowledge.
