La realización de este estudio responde a la necesidad de diseñar ambientes académicos que mejoren la adquisición de los conceptos en ingeniería que resultan a veces abstractos y limitan su comprensión. Utilizando metodologías cualitativas, se explora cuáles son los principales factores que los estudiantes refieren cuando evalúan las clases de ingeniería con el propósito de establecer elementos comunes entre las clases consideradas como destacadas. Para tal fin, las evaluaciones abiertas realizadas a profesores de ingeniería de la Universidad Nacional de Colombia fueron codificadas y analizadas para encontrar los temas subyacentes a categorías previamente identificadas en la literatura psicológica. Adicionalmente, se compararon los conteos de frecuencias en estos factores entre los profesores ubicados en el primer y último grupo de la evaluación cuantitativa. Los resultados mostraron que los estudiantes consideraban, dentro de la categoría de metodología, factores asociados a la evaluación, a la dinámica de clase y a la participación, y a la organización de tiempos y espacios. Finalmente, dentro de la categoría de huella docente, los estudiantes incluyeron la dedicación y el compromiso del docente, el nivel de asertividad, y la motivación y actitud. Todos estos factores diferenciaban el primer del último grupo.
