The main goal of this paper is to present the conce pt of ‘Technology for Human Development’ (THD) as a conceptual and particular f ramework for promoting ‘Development Education’ (DE) programmes in engineer ing curricula. The proposal is based on the accumulated experience of the Spanish federation of Engineering Without Borders (ISF-Spain) since the mid-nineties, when th e first specific proposals were consolidated, as well as the on-going work promoted by the network. Remarkably, ‘THD’ constitute a general framework not only for e ducational purposes but also for engineering practice in the international developme nt and the co-operation fields. For ISF-Spain, ‘THD’ constitutes a strategic goal for o verseas development programmes which necessarily include lobbying campaigns, engin eering educational proposals, awareness-raising and research activities. As an ex ample, the ‘DE’ state-level programme for 2005-06 is presented.
