Ukrainian Universities Launch IoT Courses

Seven Ukrainian universities and the online educational platform SmartMe University won a grant that is provided by the European Union programme – Erasmus. This grant should be spent for the implementation of the educational courses related to The Internet of Things. Check our blog post with the list of the universities and other details.

The main goal of the project is to ensure that certain educational processes and IoT research will meet the needs of modern society. The participants (universities) have to change their curriculum according to the trends of the global labor market in the field of information technologies.

According to the managing partner of SmartMe University, Oksana Belaya – “These researches are important not only for the IT industry, but it will also give students the skills that are in high demand on the quickly-changed labor market and will increase their competitiveness”.

The list of the universities that will participate includes: National Aerospace University “Kharkiv Aviation Institute”, Chernivtsi National University, Institute for Modelling in Energy Engineering, Odesa National Polytechnic University, Black Sea State University, Ternopil National Economic University, East Ukrainian National University, Zaporizhia National Technical University.

Besides Ukraine, other European universities will participate in this program from such countries as Portugal, the UK, Sweden, and Italy. The project is coordinated by the University of Newcastle. It will start on the October 15th and will last for three years.
