J. Energy Resour. Technol 138(3), 034701 (Jan 18, 2016) (4 pages) Paper No: JERT-15-1442; doi: 10.1115/1.4032426 History: Received November 17, 2015; Revised December 22, 2015

This work has been done to recognize the various contributing disciplines in colleges and universities to achieving the global goals. One aim is to point out the many college disciplines internationally that would contribute to these goals. Only four out of the global goals seem not to be directly contributed to by sustainable engineering. A presentation of relevant publications has been made of the role of sustainable engineering in accomplishing the 17 global goals of the United Nations. The pervasiveness and long reach of the many branches of sustainable engineering are evident. The implied importance of good quality engineering schools and colleges worldwide cannot be refuted.
