    The Skill "Sustainability and Social Commitment" is commonly accepted as essential in today's world. However it proves tricky to introduce into the curriculum, mainly because of lack of knowledgeable teachers. To address this issue we present a knowledge base that brings together scientific articles, books, videos, compilations of data, experiences, etc., related to sustainability and knowledge areas associated with computer science engineering. This is a valuable tool that should provide to the teacher accurate and useful information in the research task of finding links between her course and the "Sustainability and Social Commitment" skill.

    This paper presents a proposal to develop “Sustainability and Social Commitment" skills (SSC) in engineering degree curricula. The proposal is based on providing general education in SSC to teachers (in particular, the relationship between SSC and their field of knowledge) and SSC-related material for each subject, as well as developing learning and assessment methods for these skills. Unlike other proposals advocating the existence of a few specific subjects that include SSC, the authors propose to integrate these skills into different subjects throughout the curriculum. The existence of a global mechanism for the coordination and assessment of SSC skills is also proposed. Finally, the paper explains the introduction of SSC into the Barcelona School of Informatics Computing Engineering Degree at the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC-BarcelonaTECH), providing examples of how to deal with SSC within the subjects of the degree. While the experience is based on a Computing Degree, the ideas and methodology can be extended to other technical studies.
