This article discusses the step-wise changes within engineering education taken by Luleå University of Technology to meet the general, new demands put on universities in the post-industrial era. Today's universities operate in a global arena, the educational technology has to be flexible and adapted to societal demands, new forms of organizations are formed, time is compressed and learning is under a magnifier more than ever. The forces of change in higher engineering education in Sweden are described at three levels; the national level, the university level and the department level. Environmental challenges and actions to cope with these challenges are analyzed at all three levels. Universities in Sweden are facing a dynamic development in the near future characterized by consolidation, innovative thinking, building new alliances and networks, to meet the external and internal demands in a complex high tech society.
