Competence-based learning is oriented to learning by the implementation of challenges where students must demonstrate that they have learned and generated knowledge through the development of applied skills. Design education has been significantly transformed in the last ten years thanks to the integration of new perspectives and the search for a more sustainable and resilient vision due to the great impact that the discipline has had on environmental issues in the past. With the need to renew the curriculum on a competency-based approach and outlining the visions oriented towards a sustainable future, this paper describes the process of curricular design that has been followed for more than five years to materialize in a proposal of the Design program with a strategic and emerging perspective concerning social innovation and the regeneration of the planet.
