The proposed research will follow the Tuning methodology:
o Questionnaire for the generic skills (for employers, graduates, and academics). After a first analysis, they have been adopted from the TUNING project without modification.
o Questionnaire for the specific competencies (for employers, graduates, and academics) – will be elaborated in the weeks to come by teams led by the research coordinator and proposed to the SIG members for comments and improvement. The final version, issued from this debate will be used in the research.
o Inventory form for the analysis of the engineering educational structures, length of studies in different countries, learning outcomes, workload. This form will be distributed to the national coordinators.
o to distribute the two types of questionnaires to the target respondents – employers, graduates, and academics;
o to collect and transmit the data to the research coordinator;
o country level
o European level.
language of the research is English. The research report will be published in
the book: Tuning Industrial Educational Structures in
Based on the inventory form, each national coordinator will produce a synthesis on the educational system (frame and practice) for engineering studies in the respective country, in order to provide a panorama of the engineering studies at European level to be included in the book.
We invite all project members to register for the enlarged research team and to actively participate in the actual research. Any suggestions regarding the research are welcome.
