To facilitate access to all information related to this new Bylaws and Regulations, the following groups of documents were established:

Summary of the Bylaws and Regulations: In this document the main details of the Bylaws and Regulations that students must know in order to select the modality of their Degree Project are listed by modality.

Documentation by modality: In this link you will find details of the Bylaws and Regulations related to each modality and the general documentation that applies to all Degree Project modalities.

Frequently Asked Questions: Based on the repetitive concerns, the answers to the most frequently asked questions about this new Bylaws and Regulations are defined and additionally a space is provided to establish new questions.

ABOUT THE MODALITIES

ARTICLE 4°. The final work can be developed in different modalities, which will allow students to strengthen or develop specific skills or competencies, according to their interests, their potential, their professional projection and the educational project of the respective academic unit. These modalities are: Research Work

  • Artistic Creation Work
  • Teaching Practice
  • Business Practice
  • Social Practice
  • Research Seminar
  • Courses in Master's or Doctoral Programs
  • Research Internship
  • Internship in Business Creation

Research work includes the design and execution of a plan that seeks to provide solutions to theoretical or practical problems in the local, regional or national environment; adapt and appropriate technologies; replicate and validate knowledge produced in other contexts; generate innovation or carry out the study and theoretical analysis of a problem through a monographic work.

The Artistic Creation Work is an academic experience developed by students in the artistic area, which allows them to express their skills and talents through a personal language from which they generate their own work and present it in public. The work also implies the professional responsibility of the exhibition or socialization process in relation to themselves, the space and society; also demonstrating their argumentative and conceptual abilities in relation to their work and the general artistic context.

The Teaching Internship includes the student's experience and contributions to the university professorship through the development of Classroom Projects aimed at proposing and/or evaluating new methodologies, didactic strategies, subject evaluation processes and other components that contribute to the improvement of the learning process, or the enrichment of learning units in which learning objects are developed through the use of ICTs.

The Business Internship is an academic experience in which the student comes into contact and interacts through specific projects, with the reality of business contexts at local, national or international level in areas of their profession, in which they apply and strengthen personal and professional skills.

The Social Practice allows the student to get in touch with the needs of territorial entities or communities in the country and design or apply alternative solutions to problems that are part of their professional field, in projects that aim to contribute to the improvement of the quality of life of population groups. The projects in which the student works must be framed within the territorial development plan or of the organization where the internship is carried out.

The Research Seminar is a reflective, systematic and critical process whose purpose is to strengthen the student's skills required in the handling of information and communication to develop scientific research, using training for both personal and team work, and original work on a specific topic. It also seeks to initiate the study of new research objects of interest to the School. This work is carried out by a group of 3 to 5 students who, under the direction of a professor, elaborate and execute the plan of the Seminar on a research topic, through a dynamic that includes activities of reporting, correlation, discussion and elaboration of a synthesis document, which includes the study of the contextual references of the selected topic (political, ethical, economic and social aspects).

Courses in Master's or Doctoral Programs at the Universidad Industrial de Santander, include the development by the student of subjects belonging to this type of graduate programs in their disciplinary area or others whose affinity allows the deepening and theoretical analysis of problems corresponding to a topic of their interest.

The Research Internship allows the student to identify and strengthen the skills required for the development of research processes by joining Research Groups of the Universidad Industrial de Santander or other national or international universities. During the internship, the student is involved in the formulation of a research protocol or in the development of an ongoing research project, contributing in some of its components under the guidance of the Project Director.
