TUNING INDUSTRIAL EDUCATIONAL STRUCTURES IN EUROPE - European research on generic and specific competences and skills in the engineering field

One of the objectives of the EUI-Net project is to update and upgrade continuously the curricula and syllabi in engineering education, in order to make them compatible with those of other European universities and to contribute to the European innovation process.

In this respect, the project team launched the Tuning research on two areas: (i) to define and update the generic and specific competencies in the University specialisations relevant to the industrial sector, and (ii) to define and update the generic and specific competences for practical stages of students in industry.

Feedback coming from employers and former graduates that already work in industrial encounters will help universities to tune their curricula to the present reality of the industry. The perspective of academics will be also taken into account in this process of research. The information will be collected using online questionnaires for which all partners will be invited to provide feedback but also respondents from all Europe.

The research team is grateful for your contribution in this challenging attempt! [more]
