The Universidad Técnica del Norte, organized on February 28, 2020, an event for students of 1st, 2nd and 3rd high school Bachelor of the “Agustín Cueva Dávila” High School. We socialize the academic offer of the Faculty of Engineering in Applied Sciences (FICA). The event was divided into two parts.
In the first part, we presented the Erasmus W-STEM project, we also explained What is STEM? Then some students from the different majors of the Faculty presented their experience about studying their majors. In order to visualize the presence of women in engineering the participants presenting the major were only women. We also presented a video where some female Professors of the faculty answer the questions of how? and why? Did they decide to study an engineering major?
The second part of the event was the technical visit to the technological laboratories, so the high school students had an approach of the professional training of each major.
