ENGINITE aimed to design and promote a postgraduate Vocational Education and Training (VET) programme based on a Problem Based Learning (PBL) pedagogy.
ENGINITE combined advanced applied academic topics with hands-on aspects, in order to endorse the knowledge and skills of graduate engineers, preparing them for the industry of the 21st century. Via a PBL approach to training, ENGINITE captivated the career and employability skills of the new engineers (innovation, entrepreneurial skills, efficient quality, health and safety management, problem-solving, communication and presentation skills), while it enhanced technical knowledge in critical fields of engineering. Upon the completion of postgraduate VET programme, participants entered the labor market.
ENGINITE was addressed to graduate engineers with a degree in biochemical, chemical, electrical, electronic, environmental, food, industrial, mechanical, petroleum, safety engineering and/or of a relevant field. Eligible will also be Chemists and Food Technicians graduates. In particular the target group includes: (a) Graduate Engineers, who seek for a job and/or who wish to follow a post graduate/VET programme; (b) Junior Engineers, who are partly-employed and/or working in a different field and wish to follow a post-graduate/VET programme.The project’s implementation lasted from November 2017 to November 2019.
The ENGINITE consortium would like to thank wholeheartedly all the collaborating companies for their valuable support and participation in the ENGINITE structured internships
The training program includes 8 modules, delivered in the following sequential order:
