This research focuses on the development of transversal competences: creativity and innovation in the solving problems raised in higher education students of the National Polytechnic Institute, specifically in engineering careers; It’s objective was to design a model that allows developing the competences along the curricular grid of the 34 engineering careers that the National Polytechnic Institute offers. The developed model emphasizes the interdisciplinary work of the teaching group of the four training areas and in the five levels of training corresponding to the institutional educational model; it´s expected that graduates of National Polytechnic Institute engineering careers value creativity as a way to solve problems in their respective fields of work. The developed model represents an educational innovation for the National Polytechnic Institute and it´s expected to have an impact on the teacher training courses offered by the institution.
