Abstract: Several studies have shown that there is a positive correlation between self-regulation and the academic performance of students. Self-regulated learning is the set of processes that the learners deploy to achieve their personal goals and that have to do with the learning strategies they use, with the answers they offer when evaluating the effectiveness of learning and with the motivations they have. To this end, the Study and Research Paths (SRPs) strategy is proposed to encourage better self-regulation processes in the students of the Unidad Profesional Interdisciplinaria de Ingeniería Campus Guanajuato (UPIIG) of the Instituto Politécnico Nacional (IPN). This strategy was proposed by Yves Chevallard within the framework of the Anthropological Theory of the Didactic and the World Questioning Paradigm. Students of the courses of Numerical Methods and Numerical Analysis of the academic programs of engineering in: Aeronautics, Automotive Systems, Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical formed the study group. This research work presents the analysis of the results of the initial phase of the measurement of the evolution of the self-regulatory processes that students use in the development of engineering projects that need the application of numerical methods for the analysis of situations, the decision making and the development of new products.
