There is increasing need for graduates to understand and develop solutions for a myriad of sustainability problems. With increasing pressures from climate change, energy security together with the need for reducing material/resource efficiency right through to sustainability assessment and triple bottom line reporting, young engineering graduate students are increasingly being challenged to provide a skill set that meets the challenges of a changing world. Most Australian Universities are struggling with how they can ensure that their graduates have the required set of skills and knowledge n meeting these challenges. The National Sustainability Forum held at UTS in 2013 provided convincing evidence that industry is facing major sustainability design challenges and needs graduates to be suitably equipped for this work when they leave university.
