The results of an investigation developed at the National Technological Institute of Mexico / Tantoyuca campus with students of the 6th semester of petroleum engineering are presented, in which the role played by students in a collaborative learning environment that demands challenges is investigated. For the experimentation, the methodology "integrative-formative project" was applied in order to generate a new way for students to develop skills. The hypothesis that led the research was: Will this type of learning environment "integrative-formative project" achieve the incorporation of the student in a leading role in the process of building professional competencies?
