Resumen:

An important characteristic of the technological devices that support performing arts is that they involve a strong component of creativity and initative. Due to this nature, work in this type of projects becomes wellsuited for engineering education, since it promotes motivation and the development of both technical and nontechnical skills. In this paper we present a flexible framework, consisting in structure and methodology proposals, for an engineering education program that aims to design, build and operate projects that support performing arts. The proposed framework is still under evaluation, but has already shown interesting results in terms of improvement of motivation and skills.
