Mujeres en Ingeniería – El caso de la UTN FRRe ¿Es un problema regional ó repercute en otras regiones del país?

In this paper, according to the data provided by the Universidad Tecnológica Nacional – Facultad Regional Resistencia, from the research period developed during the years 2009 – 2012, it is demonstrated as a worrying, the low representation of women in Engineering. This particularity, implies the critical scene on which we are interested in working. We consider a priority the support of students to help their continuity inside the formal educational system. As well as generating spaces of empowerment for them to transform them selves as protagonists of their own trayectory, and be able to acknowledge themselves as autonomous people, aware of
their rights. Academic development of today’s professionals requires an inescapable social and altruistic commitment to enrich university opportunities from tangible practices. A change in the paradigm is necessary so that the Engineering studies are not seen as limited to men.
