The Second International Conference On Engineering Education For The Twenty-First Century (Bilbao-Spain, 4 and 5 July 2019) has been co-organized by the University of the Basque Country (UPV-EHU) and the Universitat Jaume I in Castelló (UJI), and has continued the debate started two years ago in Castelló de la Plana, where the central theme of the conference was "New Competences in the Area of Sustainability and University Social Responsibility". The central theme of this second international conference has been "Engineering Education towards Sustainability: Approaches for Institutionalization and Teaching Implementation". In a world deluged by social realities, change is an absolute necessity. Such change has found its way to European Higher Education Area, affected teaching objectives, pedagogies, and knowledge transmission. With the mission to help learners to create their capability profiles, this change visualizes graduates who can be absorbed easily by ever-evolving industries. To this aim, new active learning methodologies and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) have been introduced and applied. These changes started to appear in classrooms in the era that also fosters social values such as Sustainable Development Goals and Conscious Social Responsibilities more than ever, striving to build an equitable world.
