AGUIAR, Giancarlo F; PEINADO, Jurandir; CUNHA, José C  y  AGUIAR, Bárbara C. X. C. Technical visits to companies as part of the Teaching-Learning Process in Mechanical Engineering. Form. Univ. [online]. 2010, vol.3, n.5, pp. 21-28. ISSN 0718-5006.

In this paper a teaching-learning program named Visit Business Recognition is discussed and analyzed. The program was initiated to provide an opportunity to students of Mechanical Engineering of the Positivo University in Brazil, for complementing the theoretical and practical subjects covered in class. This article shows the program features and discusses the results of such technical visits, using data collected through questionnaires applied to the participating students, after the visits. One of the main results was a more motivated and better student performance. The students return with more confidence in their learning process, and recognize the importance of the visits. This form of educational tourism represents a complementary alternative to traditional teaching systems in our universities.
