A series of theoretical empirical reflections on research skills are presented from the experience of professors and
postgraduate students. The purpose is to analyze from the experience of postgraduate teachers and students in
education offered by the UPNECH Chihuahua campus the teaching-learning process and identify the research skills
they have developed in order to propose actions to transform the process. The phenomenological method was used with
a semi-structured interview and a theoretical review of studies developed in the international context was carried out.
Among the main findings is the organization's research skills that the graduate student needs to develop, the need to link
the curriculum with the research for the successful development of the graduate programs is identified and a series of
proposals are made to favor the development of research skills in the teaching-learning process.
