Importancia de la formación experimental del estudiante de Ingeniería Civil y su vinculación con el medio

Experimental education in engineering careers is a fundamental requirement to achieve the objectives that these careers propose. In Civil Engineering, in the area of Concrete Structures, the development of experimental activities according to previous experiences is very important because it contributes to a better understanding and consolidation of the theoretical concepts developed in class.
In this work a didactic proposal with its results, which was implemented in Facultad Regional Concordia, Universidad Tecnológica Nacional, in Civil Engineering career, is presented. The flexural test of concrete and prestressed beams was proposed in order to see different concrete states and cracks schemes.
It can be concluded that experience was very interesting. Not only were the established objectives reached, but active student participation was observed. Besides, it must be underlined the importance of relating and interacting with regional building industry to carry out the aforementioned proposal.
