Abstract: Since the publication of the UN-sponsored World Commission on Environment and Development report [1] in 1987, thousands of initiatives have been undertaken to address the different aspects of environmental challenges [2]. Among these initiatives, in 2002 the UN General Assembly proclaimed the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development, 2005-2014, 'emphasising that education is an indispensable element for achieving sustainable development'. Sustainability has been on the agenda of many engineering faculties since the late 1990s [3]. It has become clear that “a new kind of engineer is needed, an engineer who is fully aware of what is going on in society and who has the skills to deal with societal aspects of technologies” [4]. Literature covering this topic is abundant. The discussion on how sustainability can be successfully integrated into engineering programmes is still receiving attention. This paper aims to present a literature review focused on sustainability in engineering education. The review is based on the Systematic Literature Network Analysis (SLNA), a methodology including a collection of computer-based tools that analyses bibliographic data, and that have been applied to the continuous improvement of Higher Education [5]. The SLNA is adopted in this work in order to unfold the dynamics of sustainability in engineering education and identify the directions in which engineering faculties are moving.
