The gender gap in engineering is a problem that affects both the educational and the professional fields. There are a great number of projects and initiatives that work on vocations in pre-university environments, as well as initiatives that encourage the presentation of women and the improvement of their situation in professional engineering contexts. In the university context, university students should receive training on equality. However, there is a lack of practical methodological guides on how to introduce these principles into teaching practices and examples of how to carry out educational activities with a gender perspective in the different university disci- plines. Although this topic must be addressed in all areas of knowledge, it is especially necessary for engineering studies because of the gender gap. This paper describes the incorporation of the gender per- spective in the context of computer engineering through a pilot experience during three academic years in the subject of software engineering. The results of the experience provide a set of practices that can be transferred to other Computer Engineering subjects, both nationally and internationally.
