The necessary focus on sustainability issues, especially concerning tertiary engineering education at universities, has increased massively in recent years. On the one hand, the European Commission aims at a long-term examination of sustainability concepts and concrete implementation measures (e.g., Agenda 2030) with concrete initiatives (e.g., Green Deal. On the other hand, there is also a need for reform in the education system to equip the engineers of tomorrow with the necessary competencies for the use and implementation of these measures.
