The worldwide declining numbers of students enrolled in educational degrees related to engineering disciplines led to the gradual decrease of qualified engineers who are necessary for the implementation of fundamental societal functions. It is therefore imperative that the number of students studying engineering must increase. This paper discusses good practices employed by academic institutions in order to increase the attractiveness of their engineering studies. The discussion is based on the results of a pan-European survey conducted in the context of the Academic Network of European and Global Engineering Education (EUGENE).
