Abstract Numerical methods are tools for approximating solutions to problems that may have complicated developments or cannot be solved analytically. In engineering courses, students must address problems related other disciplines such as structural or rock mechanics, biology, chemistry or physics. Prior to solving these problems it is important to define and adopt a rational framework. The students of fourth course out of five, of the bachelor’s degree in Computer Sciences or Industrial Engineering at the University of Salamanca (Spain), they learn mathematics solving real problems with the help of the already acquired interdisciplinary knowledge. We have proposed the students a term project that summarizes some of the knowledge and competences acquired during the lessons. We will describe in this study the software and specific applications that will be use during the whole course.
