[en] The competency framework is a complex and time-consuming exercise seen by most teachers as an administrative process. When applied, however, it can be a powerful tool for adapting curricula for engineers to meet the emerging needs of society, including training in sustainable development. This paper looks at how to use the competency framework to generate a tool for bringing teachers together around shared objectives, helping students build their career paths and improving communication with the ‘outside world’. This approach, largely inspired by the Tardif approach, is being used for the Bioengineering Masters Degree in Environmental Sciences and Technology at the Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech Faculty, University of Liège, Belgium. The approach has allowed the teaching staff to build a common educational project aimed at enabling bioengineers to meet the needs of society
