Abandono de los estudios en Ingeniería. Cuando ser ingeniero se torna una meta no alcanzada

University desertion or studies abandonment are phenomena that worry as much about their magnitude as by their human, social and economic consequences. Engineerings do not constitute an isolated case in this sense. In the Universidad Nacional de Río Cuarto an investigation was realised whose objective aimed to contact to those subjects that began a carreer within the Engineering Faculty but that, for diverse reasons, they made the decision to leave the studies, redefining his goals and projects to future. 101 ex-students of engineering were interviewed by telephone. The results present the characterization of three sections in ex-students trajectories; 1)
the period that goes from the university entrance to the abandonment; 2) the moment of the abandonment; 3) from the abandonment to the moment of the contact.
