This work presents the evolution of the five editions of the educational activity named “Technological Challenge” specially focused on the students at “Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería de Telecomunicación” (ETSIT), but open to all students of the “Universidad de Málaga” (UMA). This initiative has been developed in the context of the educational innovation project PIE17-021 funded by UMA. The “Technological Challenge” consists on the formulation of specific real problems, which students must face in a competitive regime. This activity allows the reinforcement and evaluation of basic and general competences reached by the graduate students in the ETSIT.
After nearly five years, this paper describes the evaluation of the results, regarding interest and participation of the students in the “Technology Challenge” along with the basic and general competences reached by the students.
