The fourth industrial revolution involves automation technology presenting new challenges to all sectors in the country that require them to make changes in line with the digital transformation to remain competitive. The higher education sector is one of the sectors most impressed with the development of this fourth industrial revolution. To achieve that goal, it requires a higher education institute that is more flexible and ready to face new challenges so that any class of society will not be left out in the globalisation and digital era. This paper will focus on exploring the impact of Higher Education (HE) 4.0 on the challenges, chances and opportunity in engineering education. The question is how does the institution, curriculum and readiness of the infrastructure adapt to the changes? What new skills are needed to deal with uncertainly and risk enhancing creativity in business thinking? Many articles are analysed and summarised to provide insight to the challenges, chances and opportunities of the Industrial revolution 4.0 in HE. Finally, this article will update the engineering education system status quo and prepare to implement and be a driving factor for the industrial revolution 4.0.
