Engineering Education: Environmental and Chemical Engineering or Technology Curricula--A European Perspective
Glavic, Peter; Lukman, Rebeka; Lozano, Rodrigo
European Journal of Engineering Education, v34 n1 p47-61 Mar 2009
Over recent years, universities have been incorporating sustainable development (SD) into their systems, including their curricula. This article analyses the incorporation of SD into the curricula of chemical and environmental engineering or technology bachelor degrees at universities in the European Union (EU) and European Free Trade Association (EFTA) states. Available textbooks of some courses were analysed regarding their content and pedagogical-didactical perspectives based on a revised Bloom's taxonomy of cognitive domains. The research showed that both the universities and textbooks reviewed have room for improvement regarding SD incorporation into their curricula. (Contains 11 tables and 3 figures.)
