In this era of the fourth industrial revolution, modernization, sustainability, research and innovations are primary interventions in all segments of commercial and social activities. Higher education is being globalized and the role of information and communication technologies especially in engineering education is prominent. Engineering education 4.0 is a pedagogical approach inspired by the fourth industrial revolution for flawlessness, satisfaction, time saving, skill development, and efficiency enhancement in engineering education. From curriculum development to assessment, generation of results, and student feedback, all important tasks and activities are accomplished by the assistance of information and communication technologies. The roles and responsibilities of the stakeholders for the success of engineering education 4.0 are manifolds. Engineering education 4.0 is only possible when instructors, learners, institutes, and universities understand, adopt, disseminate and promote modern teaching and learning technologies to be internationally competitive and sustainable. This paper introduces engineering education 4.0 and discusses the roles and responsibilities of the stakeholders along with shedding lights on the future opportunities. It also reports and discusses some of the innovative and modern engineering education 4.0 teaching-learning techniques and their impact on engineering education. In essence, engineering education 4.0 is being recognized and implemented worldwide, but further efforts and encouragement are required for teachers and learners to adopt it at a large scale and higher level. The paper aims to encourage innovative future attempts in engineering education for the development of students who may stay competitive and contribute towards the fourth industrial revolution.
