Higher engineering training for environmentally sustainable industrial development
Start date: Dec 1, 2013,
HETES addresses societal needs by training individuals capable of tackling environmental challenges.Wider objective: to improve relevance of higher engineering education in UA towards challenges of current and future industrial transformation aimed at sustainable development and climate stabilisationSpecific objectives:1)To develop training course Environmentally Sustainable Industrial Development for MSc, PhD Programs and LLL audience covering industrial sectors of Mining, Metallurgy, Energy, Machine-building and Mechatronics2)To bring engineering curriculum where interdisciplinary environmental aspects are adequately focussed3)To create Interfaculty Sustainable Development Centres in 5 UA HEIs4)To establish platform for networking between academia, research, industry and authorities towards needs of sustainable societyHETES addresses societal challenges, identified by EU, and priorities of National Indicative Programme of ENPI, stipulating integration of environmental considerations, improvement of energy efficiency in industry and raising of environmental awareness among consumers.Consortium involves HEIs from 5 UA regions, covering several engineering directions, Ministry of Education & Science and major R&D organisation in a field. Universities and non-academic partner from Belgium, Spain, Sweden, UK will introduce best practices from different EU regions.Principal deliverables:-Training course Environmentally Sustainable Industrial Development for MSc, PhD Programs developed and taught to over 450 MSc, 120 PhD students-New engineering curriculum, focused on interdisciplinary environmental aspects, implemented to 6 directions of study (MSc, PhD levels) in 5 HEIs-Over 150 UA staff members acquainted to EU experience in curriculum development and institution-building towards sustainable development needs-Interfaculty Sustainable Development Centres established at 5 HEIs-LLL course and Model of Best Industrial Practice offered to industry.
