Abstract Accelerated transformation of the society and industry through digitalization, artificial intelligence and other emerging technologies has intensified the need for university graduates that are capable of rapidly finding breakthrough solutions to complex problems, and can successfully implement innovation concepts. However, there are only few universities making significant efforts to comprehensively incorporate creative and systematic tools of TRIZ (theory of inventive problem solving) and KBI (knowledge-based innovation) into their degree structure. Engineering curricula offer little room for enhancing creativity and inventiveness by means of discipline‐specific subjects. Moreover, many educators mistakenly believe that students are either inherently creative, or will inevitably obtain adequate problem-solving skills as a result of their university study. This paper discusses challenges of intelligent integration of TRIZ and KBI into university curricula. It advocates the need for development of standard guidelines and best-practice recommendations in order to facilitate sustainable education of ambitious, talented, and inventive specialists. Reflections of educators that teach TRIZ and KBI to students from mechanical, electrical, process engineering, and business administration are presented.
