Abstract: Since a few years, politics and
scientific specialists speak about sustainable development. They describe
the future trend for the world. The question is how University teachers can
contribute to this new deal with their students. First, a state of art in
France will be done. Then, we will present the main difficulties and
resistances in introducing this new way minding in scientific engineer
school. We will speak about some human development tools usable to improve
the human being and behaviour. Finally, we will give some concrete examples
we are doing in our electronic department for sensitizing students to human
behaviour impact and concrete electronic project in the way of sustainable
development. At least, we will discuss about a possible extension of the
concept and a redefinition of electronic teaching totally based on
