Abstrakt

Engineering education plays a crucial role in overcoming the challenges posed in achieving the SDGs. Achieving these goals necessitates a shift in engineering
education away from a focus on academic technical knowledge towards a much broader interdisciplinary and complex problemsolving approach that combines societal and sustainable problem analyses with academic technical knowledge and solutions. Engineering students need to learn how to analyse and solve
complicated and complex problems, and to be able to collaborate in a variety of teams. This chapter focuses on the need for new engineering competencies, as well as emerging trends demonstrating how engineering institutions can respond to the challenges of sustainability through student-centred and problem-based learning. Steering engineering education in this direction will require educational leadership and research. Curriculum change should
be approached in a systematic way, which includes promotion and faculty development.
