This paper reports about the research based on the comparison of tests about the spatial skill of engineering students from two Spanish universities before and after the performance of specific training for improving several abilities based on tasks with 3D objects visualized through augmented reality technology. The training was completed at home with 66 students as participants, considering a control group composed of 25 students from both universities. The AR system technical aspects are also described as well as the application developed. The study’s results show that students from both universities improve their spatial ability and there is no significant statistical significance between students from both universities, neither before nor after training so we may conclude that training’s effect on both universities is analogue.
