After suffering some consequences of global warming over the last decades, governments have been adopting different approaches for the sustainable development of nations. Thus, universities have had to adapt their programs to the requirements of the market. This article responds to the need of knowing what Ecuadorian universities think about the modifications in the curricula of electrical engineering programs, such as the inclusion of renewable energy courses. To achieve this goal, the project surveys a representative of ten participant universities. The outcomes show that although most programs have updated their curriculum, they do not count with the necessary resources to teach specialized courses on energy sustainability for the proper formation of future professionals possessing the competences required by the current national energy exploitation scene.
