3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

The structure of the curriculum makes teaching in the field of economics increasingly scarce in engineering careers. This fact is detrimental to the training of future professionals, since these are issues that are of absolute importance in most jobs that many students will access as professionals in their future. That is why it is to reinforce all the contents already seen in the degree in subjects of the area of Industrial Engineering with a wide range of issues of practical nature, so that students end up understanding and applying to the reality that surrounds them what was previously seen at a more theoretical level.
