Transforming engineering education is the theme of the 9th International Research Symposium on Problem-Based Learning (IRSPBL2023), convened by the MIT School of Engineering, Harvard’s John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and the Aalborg Centre for Problem-Based Learning in Engineering Science and Sustainability under the auspices of UNESCO. This book presents the 54 contributions from 16 different countries from this IRSPBL edition.

The contributions cover a relevant number of topics, from Collaboration with Industry to Creativity and Interdisciplinarity, Development of Professional Competences, Digitalization and Online Learning, and Education for Sustainability, just name a few. They all aim to contribute for same vision, which is how to prepare next generation of professional engineers with the right set of skills, such as complex problem-solving, systems thinking and interdisciplinary collaboration, to address global challenges, whilst taking different strategies, lines of research and involvement.

This book represents some of the newest results from research on PBL and best practices to inspire researchers
and practitioners to transform their practice and their institutions.
