An introduction to sustainable development in the engineering curriculum: Engineering Subject Centre teaching guide

This resource is part of a series of Engineering Subject Centre teaching guides aimed at the busy Engineering academic. This guide is intended to stimulate thought and consideration amongst those who:

  • as members of teaching staff may wish to introduce EngSD into their teaching;
  • as leaders of Engineering programmes may wish to consider the broader ethos of their curriculum

The guide looks at why and how EngSD is included in the Engineering curriculum and considers embedded versus discrete approaches. It discusses approaches to teaching and learning for EngSD including examples of EngSD within the curriculum and a 'what next?' section which points the reader towards further areas of study and practice. As an introduction to EngSD within engineering programmes this guide does not seek to prescribe courses of action but rather aims to outline the main opportunities sources of guidance and educational resources which may enable informed debate and decision making.
