ADD ON SKILLS: „Erasmus+“ project developing skills for young engineers

add on skills

After signing the partnership agreement in the Civil Engineering Faculty of VTDK, from 2021 June there is implemented „Erasmus+“ project „Advanced Digital Design course ON modern buildings developing SKILLS for young engineers“ (ADD_ON_SKILLS) Nr.2020-1-PL01-KA226-HE-095244: there will be prepared teaching modules and material for book, formed descriptions for subjects and general requirements for subject programs, organized the meetings of project executors and coordinators, teachers training week events in Spain, students summer school in Poland, 3 events in Poland and Lithuania and so on.

 

Project executor - Bialystok University of Technology (Poland).

Project partners:

Vilnius College of Technologies and Design (Lithuania);

University of Cordoba (Spain);

University of Florence (Italy);

Rezekne Academy of Technology (Latvia);

Bialystok branch of the Poland Association of Construction Engineers and Technicians (Poland).

 

Project implementation period: 2021-06-01 – 2023-05-31

Overall project grant: 261 018,00 euros

 

Because both the construction sector and modern studies are constantly faced with various challenges, such as remote work and the specifics of its organization and digitization, work in an international environment, etc., through implementation of project activities it is aimed to develop necessary new competencies and skills both for teachers and future civil engineers. It is expected to create innovative mixed mobility course learning module in order that, if necessary, the whole course would be possible to to convey to students remotely (e.g., it is expected to produce no less than 4 electronic laboratories, providing remote access to equipment or allowing systems to be simulated, depending on external variables.

During the project produced material, created training programs and provided teaching methods will be tested in two groups of students, working in the international and interdisciplinary teams.

During the project produced module will be included in the study programs of higher education institutions, project executor and partners, and will be offered as optional subject (4 ECTS) or (and) as a course, intended for raising the qualifications of young engineers.

During the project created intellectual products will be presented and accessible for free in the website of the ADD_ON_SKILLS projct (https://addonskills.pb.edu.pl/).
