The wide scope of engineering encompasses the importance of working in line with sustainable development. The multiple applications of engineering and the service it offers to society cannot be broken down from a sustainable vision. To achieve this challenge, future engineers who are currently being trained in higher education institutions must acquire the knowledge and skills that enable them to adapt to these new requirements, breaking with the traditional vision of engineering education, and to focus on a sustainability approach where technological innovation, social progress, and environmental impacts locally and globally come together to develop new projects, products, and services which are friendlier to the environment. Sustainability in Engineering Education is essential for future engineers to become catalysts of change towards a more sustainable society.
