Nowadays, universities are teaching students whose main distinctive characteristic is the strong relationship they have with information and communication technology (ICT). They are the millennial generation who have a different learning style and who are most effective when doing multisensory activities. Higher education institutions face a big challenge in finding ways to improve the learning experience and academic performance of these and future students. Research has shown that ICTs used for educational purposes can help in meeting this challenge. In this work, a review of the available ICTs that can be applied in the educational field is undertaken. Additionally, selected universities from the QS World University Rankings by Engineering and Technology Subject 2018 are analyzed. The aim is to review the state of the art technology employed by them and to summarize the innovative technological tools, trends and teaching practices of these organizations for successful engineering education. This research work can be seen as a guide to proven and valuable technologies and educational practices useful to improve the teaching–learning processes in engineering education.
