Within the discussions around the topic of Education and Training in Mechatronics and Precision Engineering, the EUI-Net activities were presented by Assoc. Prof. Simona Lache, based on a paper written in cooperation with Assoc. Prof. Marcela Luca and entitled Modern Tools For Promoting Education, Research And Innovation In Mechatronics, In The View Of Bologna Process Implementation. The paper describes the recent experience of Transilvania University of Brasov, through the cooperation of different departments (Department of Precision Mechanics and Mechatronics, Department of Strength of Materials and Mechanical Vibrations, Department of Product Design and Robotics, Department of Electrotechnics, Department of Psychology) in implementing of modern tools for identifying the generic and specific competences in the mechatronics field. The study was carried out within the framework of EUI-Net and refers both to the educational process and the student practical placement.
