About Project
PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The project is designed to create a base for preparing engineers capable of working on technological design of industrial and urban systems, industrial processes and consumer products taking into account environmental problems and given social and economical restrictions in Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Ukraine.

To meet this wider objective, the project team will:

- introduce innovative Bologna-compliant modular, problem-oriented Master Program in Industrial Ecology at eight Universities in Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Ukraine by September 2013;

- increase capacity in the area of Industrial Ecology, modern teaching methods as well as quality assurance mechanisms at partner Universities through training at EU Universities;

- improve and encourage the international integration of partner countries’ students through mobility to EU Universities and participation in International Seminars;

- promote and strengthen institutional capacities of partner Universities to provide guidance to industries and local/regional authorities;

- ensure visibility of new Master Programme at eight partner Universities and their Industrial Ecology Centres;

- ensure continuity of the Master Program and long-term support of the project outcomes at Partner Universities beyond Tempus Programme funding.

The project will be finalized with four Conferences “Engineering Education for Sustainable Development” in Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Belarus and Ukraine. The Conferences will disseminate results of the project and start discussions concerning the new role and responsibilities of modern engineering Universities.
