Intenet of Things
Start date: 01 Jul 2016, End date: 30 Jun 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Our project 'Internet of Things (IOT)' is part of the vocational training for our 2-year courses for technical assistants in information technology and electrical engineering. During their first year of full-time training at Wilhelm Maybach College we will send 14 students to our partner colleges in Norway and Wales for project periods of 14 days each. These project stays will be recognized by our college as part of the students' compulsory work placement periods within their vocational training.During their project stays our students will be educated in important aspects of their vocational training. At our partner colleges in Norway and Wales they will work with different technical equipment in a different vocational training system. Our students will practice their vocational English and will have a chance to compare their own level of skills and competences with the students of our partner colleges. This will allow our students to develop a realistic view of their chances in the European labour market. We will select 6 applicants per year for the project stay in Norway and 8 applicants per year for the stay in Wales. The groups will be made up of students with an IT or electrical engineering background based on their interest and competence.During the project periods our students will gain important knowledge for their vocational training, but they will also become more self-confident with regard to their skills and competences. They will develop a realistic view of their value in the European labour market. In their personal development they will become more self-assured, and they will develop a positive attitude towards an exchange of ideas in Europe. In this way our project 'ConTraCt' can further a more open and flexible European labour market. For our region our project will provide workforce that has developed competence and open-mindedness for international communication.
