Argentina necesita ingenieros: sumate al desafío

Engineering-type careers are called upon the task of meeting different social needs. As such, Engineering is a full-time profession, where demand for engineers greatly exceeds their availability. However, the early take-on of technology-related careers is scarce. Our slogan “Argentina needs Engineers: Join the challenge” is just a token of this situation. This paper describes a project aimed at inviting the University community as a whole to renew their efforts
and establish strategies tailored to each educational area, in order to make knowledge democratization and university social inclusion in Engineering careers a reality. In order to become a trusting partner in educating these new youngsters, several lines of work are discussed, aimed at: socializing the importance of these careers in the development a nation’s plan and promoting actions meant to articulating, communicating and exchanging experiences with Highschool students.
