Intellectual Output 1 (IO1): SKILLSFOCUS 2030: A Model of Skills and Attributes needed for Engineers to achieve the SDGs

Résumé

This Intellectual Output (IO1) document reports on the outcomes of Activity 1 as part of the A-STEP 2030 (Attracting diverSe Talent to the Engineering Professions of 2030) project. This project is an EU Erasmus + project funded under call number 2018-1-FR01-KA203-047854. The document begins by explaining the purpose and aims of the overall research project and more specifically, the research questions associated with Activity1. Two tasks were completed in order to contribute to this report, the first being a literature review (Tabas, Beagon and Kovesi, 2019) and the second consisting of 12 focus groups (three in France, Ireland, Finland and Denmark), the findings of which are detailed in Beagon et al., (2019). Both reports are available on the project website https://www.astep2030.eu/en. The report summarises the outcomes of both studies and presents a model of skills and attitudes required of engineers in the future in order to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The model is presented in tabular form and has three key pillars; Technical skills, Non-Technical Skills and Attitudes. These are further spilt into categories with lists of skills sets under the following terms: Fundamental Technical Skills, Application Skills, Outward Facing – People Orientated Skills, Inward Facing – Ways of Thinking, Worldview and Character and Ethical Orientation. The Model is presented on page 11. The findings present a picture of the future engineer as having a broad worldview, a sound character and a strong ethical orientation. Engineers still need to be taught the technical and application skills required to achieve engineering projects, but non-technical skills will be equally important in their education. Compared to traditional approaches to engineering education, this new approach to engineering places a relatively high value on social values and ways of thinking and the importance of the human and social dimensions in engineering practice.
