Towards a long-term sustainable development vision in the self: a study with engineering students

Fernández López, Manuel (2021) Towards a long-term sustainable development vision in the self: a study with engineering students. World Transactions on Engineering and Technology Education, 4 (19). pp. 410-416.

The objective of this study was the identification of the presence of a sustainable development vision (year 2030) in engineering students. The focus was on the self, related to the reflection and self-knowledge of the individual. Students from universities in Norway and Spain were encouraged to place themselves in the future from several interrelated perspectives. A sustainable development vision beyond economic growth, with equality and well-being, was used as a foundation of a social future in 2030. While a weak integration of the vision has been identified, emergent aspects in the self suggest potential for change and that students would benefit from further structured exploration of the self. The study contributes to engineering education by showing the relevance of a space for reflection on the self from a long-term perspective that integrates sustainable development.
