Seedbed Projects of Research

The seedbed projects of research are a space of investigative formation that is made up of students and teachers of one or many disciplines that carry out specific activities in research projects.

The goals of seedbed projects of technological research are:

  • Promote researching capabilities.
  • Propitiate the interaction between teachers, researchers and students, promoting cooperative and collaborative interdisciplinary team work.
  • Manage processes and research strategies in benefit of the educational community with a positive impact on the environment.
  • Promote the researching culture and cultivate talent in students through activities that contribute to this culture.

Seedbed Project MATEMASIS

Directed by Ing. Carlos Murillo
Lines of Investigation: Invention, innovation and technological development
Mission: Study the teaching-learning process of mathematics and the solution of problems that lead to the construction of the meaning that these generate.
Vision: Offer alternative didactic strategies in order to form researchers in the basic sciences and the discipline of computation, recognized by the academic community because of the pedagogical, moral, cultural, ethical, professional, scientific and human virtuous suitability.
General Objective: Improve the process in the construction of mathematical concepts in engineering careers from different theoretical approaches.
Specific Objectives:

  • Contribute and develop the construction of mathematical concepts in students of an engineering career.
  • Induce and give sense of mathematical concepts to students.
  • Create interesting problems that permit students to idealize and carry out strategies to solve them.
