Summary: This article presents the results of a research whose empirical data were obtained from the use of mathematical modelling as a teaching method for Differential Integral Calculus in a Civil Engineering course. The objectives of the research were to evaluate students' learning of mathematics, analyze their competence and ability in using the model and verify the principal advantages and difficulties in establishing modelling as a teaching methodology in a regular degree course.
