"The world’s economy needs more market-ready engineers"

ENGINITE ONLINE TRAINING PLATFORM

The ERASMUS+ project “ENGINITE: ENGineering and INdustry Innovative Training for Engineers via PBL”. ENGINITE’s main aim is to develop a top notch training programme with a vision to bridge the gap between industry and academia helping to develop more market-ready young engineers. The training programme draws upon the need for integrated training and work-based learning which builds on well-established pedagogical models as well as links with the labor market.

ENGINITE proposes a new industrial-oriented postgraduate Vocational Education and Training (VET) programme which is based on Problem-based Learning (PBL) pedagogy as well as integrated training and work-based learning. The project is funded by the ERASMUS+ KA2 Strategic Partnership for VET Programme.

Please visit https://www.enginite.eu/ for more information about the project.

Audience: Junior engineers who wish to follow a postgraduate/VET programme. Junior engineers may have degrees in biochemical, chemical, electrical, electronic, environmental, food, industrial, mechanical, petroleum, safety engineering and/or of a relevant field (including chemists and food technicians etc). Training Modules: The training program includes 8 modules, delivered in the following  sequential order:
  • A1 Engineering Systems Thinking: Re-engineering by Simplifying
  • A2 Project Management in Action
  • A3 Innovation, Entrepreneurial and Intrapreneurial skills
  • A4 Applied Efficient Quality and Health & Safety Management Systems
  • B1 Engineering Logistics and Supply Chain Analysis in practice
  • B2 Engineering economics
  • B3 Applied Process and Production Optimization
  • B4 Product development. From concept to market

Teaching/Learning Pedagogy

In Problem-Based Learning students are presented with an open-ended, ill-structured, authentic problem and work in teams to identify learning needs and develop a viable solution, with instructors acting as facilitators rather than primary sources of information. The common features of PBL models are the following:
  • Being learner/student centred: more responsibility is placed on students for their own learning.
  • Supporting the research-backed approach that students learn best by fitting new information into existing cognitive structures.
  • Supporting the widely accepted constructivist view of learning, which says students create their own version of reality, rather than simply absorbing what people say.
