Rol del gobierno en la educación en ingeniería: El rol del ingeniero en el cambio social a nivel regional e internacional El rol de la ingeniería en la integración latinoamericana

The geopolitics have changed radically over the past two decades and has moved from a bipolar to a multipolar world. This has resulted in the formation of regional bodies, and in our region were el Mercado Común del Sur (MERCOSUR), la Unión de Naciones Sudamericanas (UNASUR) and la Comunidad de Estados Latinoamericanos y Caribeños (CELAC). Education and practice of engineering must adapt to these circumstances and in this sense, regional or global agreements on training and quality assurance substantially equivalent are basics factors to the academic and professional recognition. The integration of Latin America engineering and thus the increment the potential for development of multilateral projects is an obligation of engineers and their representative bodies, because only then will be technically viable and sustainable the integration policies designed by national states.
