dc.description.abstractThis publication presents a set of teaching materials to enable professors to practically implement in the classroom the cross-cutting competence of “Sustainability and Social Commitment” linked to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These materials are based on real-life experiences and are presented in the form of case studies: 1. Tanzanian’s Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Programme: Introduction to Economy and Calculus for Engineering / 2. Algebra and Large-Scale Dam Assessment: The Case of Merowe Dam in Sudan / 3. Exploring the Use of Recycled Aggregates in Concrete Mix Proportion: An Alternative for Haiti? / 4. Widening Horizons to the Design of a Pre-Stressed Concrete Slab: A Case Study in Barcelona / 5. Dimensioning a Drinking Water Distribution Network in Collique (Lima): Introduction to the Human Right to Water and Sanitation / 6. Multivariate Analysis and Indices Construction: Data Mining Applied to the Rural Water and Sanitation Sector in Honduras.
