A quantitative-based and explanatory study was done with the objective of determining variables related with scientific competence in graduate students enrolled in natural sciences and engineering programs in Sonora, Mexico. Eighty-fi ve university teachers from three university institutions were randomly selected. Results show that emphasis on scientific competence by graduate programs is R2=.26. Though not enough explanatory power was found in scientific competence development, there is a positive relationship between the time a teacher devotes to tutorial hours and the academic performance observed in students.
