How French CTI (Commission des Titres d’Ingénieur) supports societal engagement of institutions in the field of Sustainable development

Anne-Marie Jolly (CTI)

Sustainable Development(SD) is a major subject for society but also for Engineering education. Many citizens think that the consequences concerning climate change or reduction of biodiversity are the results of what engineers have imagined during the previous century. It is partly true but since the 90’s many attempts exist in research and education to fight for ecology and social responsibility.

The accreditation agency in charge of Engineering education has the duty to help institutions to progress on those fields, in 2014, new criteria on SD have been introduced in our “Références &Orientations”, they   concern many fields of accreditation but especially Quality Assurance and expected Learning Outcomes.

We had to put in place specific “Focuses”  in 2016 and 2018. We have just got the results of the 2018’s one and we can say that job is still to be done but we have the hope to have really helped institutions to progress.
