The issue of quality engineering education aimed at resource efficiency and sustainable development worldwide is quite topical nowadays. One of the main components of the educational environment is a teacher, whose role has changed significantly over the past decade: from a translator to a facilitator. In addition, it is worth considering that students begin to play an increasingly active role in the educational process. They set requirements to the quality, contents and innovative techniques which facilitate the development of competencies. The survey “Ideal teacher at an innovative technical university” was conducted at National Research Tomsk Polytechnic University. This paper presents the comparative analysis of universal and professional competencies of “ideal” and “real” teachers based on the students’ viewpoint. The portrait of a teacher, who is able and has enough facility to foster students’ competitive skills to confront sustainable development challenges including “green engineering” through collaboration, was drafted.
