CARRIAZO, José G.; SAAVEDRA, Martha J.  and  MOLINA, Manuel F.. Where the Teaching of Materials science should be directed to?. Educ. quím [online]. 2017, vol.28, n.2, pp.107-115. ISSN 0187-893X.

Currently, it is evident the need of discussing the curricular orientation that Material Science should have as a key subject in undergraduate programs of science, engineering and related careers with technological and industrial design applications. In this work, some fundamental aspects for building of Materials Science curricula are discussed from scientific, technological and pedagogical perspectives. A scientific and technological view allows establishing conceptual contents intended from world modern knowledge on research and technological activities performed for Materials and Solid State fields. The pedagogical view shows that meaningful learning and STS (Science, Technology and Society) approach should be combined to yield a suitable educational strategy.
