|Description||iCo-op was initiated to equip engineering students in Armenia, Georgia, and Ukraine with the skills necessary for a successful career. The program will forge partnerships between universities and industry to modernize engineering education that provides direct access to top-notch facilities with remote and virtual instrumentation. The program will be based on EU best practices, partners’ industry expertise, and knowledge of business demand of target countries.
iCo-op aims to: – Establish methodology for identification and monitoring of demand for knowledge and skills in industry; – Deliver learning programs incorporating transversal and using remote laboratories/virtual instrumentation knowledge and competences; – Build mutually beneficial, sustainable partnerships between academia and enterprises by offering internship programs and up-to-date industry training programs. iCo-op starts with analysis of knowledge and skill gaps in engineering curricula, based on Armenian/Georgian/Ukrainian fields needs. 24 engineering modules, based on remote/virtual instrumentation, will be developed and enhanced with transversal competencies.
A pilot for university/enterprise participants with integrated internship program and trainings for instructors and module developers will be established in 8 universities and at least 9 enterprises of the 3 targeted countries. Roundtables, workshops, conferences will be carried out for wider dissemination of the methodology in these countries. Developed reports, recommendations, set of informational and instructional materials will be available online for free.
Use-and application of project products will commence during the project to evaluate strengths and sustainability of the methodology and to address potential problems. In all three countries, iCo-op will expand the methodology and resources for enhancing student competency required by modern industry. The results will effect educational and economic transformation of partner countries.
