Abstract: Engineering technical competence is an indisputable need in an engineer professional life. However, to be a complete engineer, able to work in an ever changing globalized world, but sensible to cultural differences, it is necessary more than technical skills. It is then important for students acquiring non-technical competences, such as intercultural appreciation, leadership, self management, service and civic responsibility, teamwork, and understanding of engineering ethics. Here, we present the “Women in STEM2D” Program, developed with undergraduate engineering students, whose goal is to attract and keep female students in the technological and science areas. We provide a critical analysis about how the planning and execution of the program activities contribute to the development of non-technical skills in the engineering students.
