There have been many reviews of engineering education over the last 15 years, yet most engineering curricula remain traditionally focused on the development of technical outcomes, with a small emphasis on design. This paper reviews many of the international reviews, to seek the common themes that need to be addressed. Examples of new curricula are provided. Although the design of new curricula is difficult enough, it is the implementation of change within our existing academic structures that is really the difficult problem to be solved.
