Industrial Engineering Education Field in Colombia


This paper analyze the professors narratives of different industrial engineering programs in Colombia, seeking to answer research question about the characteristics of configuration processes and transformation of industrial engineering education in the country, the methodology used was Bourdieu’s fields, from the habitus concept of professors while they are the education’s field agents. The study was approached from the analysis of social practices, in which more than mass events of a structural nature, it seeks to strengthen the collective memory of those who have been excluded from official history and serve as an educational space from study of processes and events that led to formation of social subjects, investigating the interaction and conflicts, in such a way that the past can be questioned according to current emancipatory projects. The configuration and transformation processes of industrial engineering as a knowledge discipline in Colombia between 1950 and 2000 were studied through the tensions and ruptures, the conflicts and new interactions generated from the developed world discourses. Critical analysis was considered as the best alternative in information treatment, because it facilitated the professors’ narratives analysis. For processing information it was utilized QDA (qualitative data analysis) y GEPHI (graph visualisation and cartography in data mining).
