Rol del gobierno en la educación en ingeniería: Matriculación, retención y graduación

Generation of early vocation, improved academic and socio-cultural conditions of the entrants, financial support through scholarships, early labor market are some factors that have direct impact on income, transit and graduation in engineering. The results of the projects implemented since 2003 have been highly satisfactory and this has prompted the President of the Republic approved the Strategic Plan 2012-2016 to provide continuity and further actions taken. The stated goal is to move from a ranking of 6,000 engineers in 2009 to 10,000 engineers in 2016. To this end the Ministry of Education launched this plan with the commitment and support from the universities, those responsible for previous levels of training, employers, professional bodies and other stakeholders as they relate to training and practice of engineering.
