Abstract/Summary This working paper is one outcome of a project entitled Integrating sustainability education into engineering and built environment curriculum that operates under the auspices of the Promotion of Sustainability in Postgraduate Education and Research Network (ProSPER.Net) at the United Nations University Institute of Advanced Studies (UNU-IAS). The project is being undertaken under the leadership of the School of Property, Construction and Project Management, RMIT University. It is carried out in collaboration with academics from ProSPER.Net member institutions and other universities. The project also benefitted from the inputs of industry representatives who participated in the project's activities. In summary, the aim of the project is to integrate sustainability thinking and practice into engineering and built environment curricula through a professional development programme for university academics. The primary output of the project is the development of a guide for university academics and curriculum developers in built environment disciplines, such as engineering and architecture at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The wider aim is to ultimately expand and develop further courses and offerings to students within this rapidly changing built environment sector. Wherever possible, this applied research project draws on links with industry, creating opportunities for networking and creating close links with academia and industry.
