The contraction/compression experienced by the engineering education programs, from the classical five/-six courses to the four courses of the current Degree, promotes a teaching-learning process that overflows many contents without being able to reflect on them. The students contact the theoretical concepts and the corresponding algorithms, and identify the pertinent mathematical actions, but the credit shortage deprives of the instrumental abilities to apply them. The result can be a partial and superficial learning. This work proposes a teaching performance for the student to acquire skills in MATLAB as a response to specific needs detected in the students of matters concerned with Electrical Engineering. Two starting points can be considered: the verification of the predominance of the visual learning style of the studentsof the Technical University of Cartagena (UPCT), and the philosophy that mathematics needs computersto be productive in the Teaching of Engineering.
