Industrial Cooperation and Creative Engineering Education based on Remote Engineering and Virtual Instrumentation
Today we would like to present the following EU-funded project.

Quality Austria has in this project, the quality assurance of the project over.
Other responsibilities include support of the universities in the target countries in the creation of three cross-divisional teaching modules. The results of the previous needs assessment are taken into account.
In December 2013 Dr. Anni Koubek of Quality Austria resulted in Yerevan/Armenia through a 3 day training for universities from Armenia, Georgia and Ukraine. Theme was " Improving the quality of learning services through management systems" based on ISO 29990 with special consideration of the competence of teaching ends, evaluation of the learning process and integration of management systems. The aim of the cross- training was to impart quality management methods, so that the management system frame for the reactions of training in the various institutions involved can be optimized. This guarantees optimal basis for the future development of innovative teaching methods , how they are implemented in the project subsequently.
