Formación de emprendedores tecnológicos en el área de ingeniería desde el enfoque de la innovación disruptiva

The aim of this article is to present the positive impact of exposing engineering students to the entrepreneur’s way of life from the perspective of disruptive innovation. This action promotes the development of technological entrepreneurs with entrepreneurship competencies. At the end of the term, 31 students delivered 12 business plans. According to Christensen’s Innovation Model, five of the business plans promoted the development of transformational sustaining innovations. The other seven business plans promoted the development of evolutionary sustaining innovations. The main result of this proposal is the creation of an interdisciplinary cooperative situated student-centered learning environment with multiple representations of highly interconnected knowledge. This nontraditional learning environment allows students a full development of theirs entrepreneur potential for providing new answers to regional stakeholders’ needs.
