The objective of the research was to diagnose the learning styles of 350 students of a public university in the Metropolitan Area of Lima, consisting of 74 female students and 276 male students who were enrolled in the 2018-II semester and within the range of the first to tenth cycle in one of the following professional careers: Geological Engineering, Metallurgical Engineering, Mining Engineering, Economic Engineering, Statistical Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Textile Engineering. This problem was addressed through a quantitative approach with the application of the Honey-Alonso Learning Styles Questionnaire (CHAEA). The results indicate that the predominant style in most members of the sample is the reflective style (41.7%), followed by the theoretical style (31.7%), the pragmatic style (14.0%) and, finally, the active style (12.6%). In addition, the characteristics of each of the learning styles were identified in the contingent of engineering students who participated in the study.
