This paper describes the processes that have started to reform the curriculum and learning landscape at Computer Engineering School of the Universidad Politecnica de Madrid (Spain) within the European Higher Education Area framework. In this context, competences and learning outcomes are emerging as a new teaching/learning paradigm, where approaches centered on the learner are increasingly important. In first place, it describes the process followed for the identification of its own core generic competences map explaining its connections between learning outcomes, levels, descriptors, credits, methodology, learning activities and assessment. Finally, it reports some of the results obtained in the implementation of this core competence curriculum realized in a pilot experience the first and second semester, analyzing the degree of institutional impact of the actions undertaken and perspectives for the future.
