This paper deals with the innovative curriculum developed at the College of Engineering at Rowan University to integrate sustainable development across the undergraduate curriculum. Teaching modules focus on the concept of sustainable development for infrastructure, chemical, electrical, mechanical and environmental systems. These modules have been developed for all levels of engineering courses starting from the freshman to the senior classes. Implementation of course content is easier than traditional engineering programs, as the college has multidisciplinary "clinic courses" for all engineering students. Sustainability concepts have also been reinforced in traditional engineering classes and via service learning activities. Service learning activities are promoted through the Engineers without Borders Student chapter.
