Abstract

Civil Engineering is the most important tool that society has to improve its quality of life. Access to health, education, mobility, water, communications and in general the necessary resources to increase the quality of life are possible with the means provided by infrastructures. Civil engineering studies have been implementing sustainability mechanisms for the last 30 years. With the enactment by the United Nations (UN), the Universities in charge of training Civil Engineers must integrate these sustainability mechanisms into their training. The School of Civil Engineering is developing a program to adapt teaching, research and social dissemination activities aimed at the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It is proposed to do it in two steps: firstly, identify the SDGs that are more relevant to the different subjects covered by the degree, secondly, define the learning objectives that the students must achieve in order to acquire the competencies required in the field of the SDGs and to include those objectives in the Learning Guide. It is also proposed that in each of the subjects, a dedicated activity to put into practice the SDGs covered by each specific subject is carried out. In this way, the student acquires a more tangible, practical vision of these SDGs. For the students to be involved in their own learning process, a evaluation rubric will be included. Nevertheless, the teacher will be in charge of choosing the type of evaluation to use.
