Abstract
This paper presents a methodology to analyze the sustainability presence level in the curriculum of an engineering degree. The methodology is applied to ten engineering degrees of the Spanish university system, taught in three different universities. The design used for the research is quantitative and correlational. The analytical instrument used is the Engineering Sustainability Map, which contains the learning outcomes related to sustainability that are expected of engineering students upon c...
