Current education demands that university students possess a series of skills, among which scientific research and writing skills are essential for the future professional. The field of engineering is not exempt from this academic demand. The purpose of this study was to compare the results of the pre- and post-test on the research skills and scientific writing of students in an engineering program. The study is a quasi-experimental type of pretest and post-test design in the subject “Writing and Research Reports”. The participants were 94 students, 82 (87.2%) males and 12 (12.8%) females. The Self-rated skills for research-based learning (AHABI) instrument was applied and statistically significant differences were found in the three factors: process, management and development of information, and the total scale with a positive increase in research skills at the end of the semester. It is concluded that scientific writing courses have a positive impact on the development of research skills.
