In Peru, the university law makes explicit the policies that universities must implement to promote research; this has allowed the investigative dimension to be strategic and necessary in professional training. This article shows the set of strategies developed by a private university in Lima to enhance the investigative skills of students of the engineering faculty; with the support of Junior Researchers, Experienced Researchers, Full-Time Professors, and Authorities; all this virtuality. These actions allowed students and teachers to complete their research work (indexed in Scopus) and to continue working on the completion of the thesis. These achievements are indicators of progress in the research competencies of the engineering faculty students and teachers (23% of the university's scientific production is provided by it).
