For adult students of Engineering courses, one of the greatest challenges is, through their successes and setbacks, creating a critical awareness through their experiences and continuing to seek more assertive conduct in the face of technical and human procedures in everyday life. Studies of this nature with the aim of understanding teaching and learning processes based on Andragogy, can contribute to the technical and human development of these adults during their academic training, but the studies limited, proving the need for further development in technological education. The strategy with a focus on Andragogy  taken in a restricted universe, through descriptive methods of a qualitative and exploratory nature, through documentary analysis with bibliographic review. The use of a questionnaire with a target audience of adults between 18 and 30 years old, 51 students from odd-numbered semesters (1st to 9th) of the Mechanical Engineering course at the Instituto Federal de Educação, Ciência e Tecnologia do Rio Grande do Sul – IFRS, Campus Ibirubá – RS, allowed an analysis of the profile of students and conceptions on the subject. In this direction of structures of thought and in search of answers and reflections, the data obtained were due to the possibility of structuring educational strategies based on Andragogy. Proposing a new teaching-learning relationships using active methodologies for adults in a meaningful way.
