The quality of education in a country is not superior to the quality of its teaching staff. If the teacher is the key to the quality of teaching, it is necessary that the educational action of the teachers is improved taking into consideration a specific social and cultural context, and specific educational and work conditions. Likewise, as part of the Accreditation Council of the Teaching of Engineering, CA (CACEI), the design of engineering, the integration of natural sciences and engineering sciences should be evaluated. This is a process that can refer to safety, environmental and social factors. In complementary courses it must include sustainable development, the impact of technology on society, care for the environment, professional ethics, etc. From this perspective, this article exposes the importance of the incorporation of energy focused on the life cycle in the projects and subjects that the teacher has in the Higher School of Computing.
