Abstract
Since the early nineties sustainability education in Technological Universities has been being promoted with different success rates. Some universities have put a lot of effort in training engineers and architects with sustainability competences (KTH, Chalmers UT, TUDelft, UPC, etc.). The Universitat Politécnica de Catalunya (UPC-Barcelona Tech) decided to introduce in 2005 the transversal competences “Sustainability and Social Commitment” that all students have to master when graduating.
