Theme 3: Future engineering skills

Courses on engineering skills are part of many engineering education programmes. In a rapidly developing society, required engineering skills change quickly. One of the challenges is to better anticipate engineering skills needed in the future and to stay updated on the state-of-the-art engineering skills needed in society. How to design agile degree programmes in which future engineering skills are effectively acquired and seamlessly integrated? How to make sure that the skills addressed in the programmes are in line with the skills needed? And how to stimulate critical reflection among students on the application of new engineering skills in professional practice and society?
