Many of these students have problems in managing visual information or in creating mental models of objects represented by their orthographic projections. The study reports about research on comparison tests about the spatial skills of engineering students from two Spanish universities before and after performing a specific training for improving these abilities. The training was completed by 66 students as participants, considering a control group composed of 25 students from both universities. Results show that students from both universities improve their spatial ability and there is no statistical significance between students from both universities, neither before nor after training, so we may conclude that training’s effect on both universities is analogue.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/46420||ISBN:||9780791845066||DOI:||10.1115/DETC2012-70593||Source:||Proceedings of the ASME Design Engineering Technical Conference,v. 7, p. 219-225|
