The aims and objectives of the project are: introducing the new master study programmes for academic and vocational studies in the field of Digital Broadcasting and Broadband Technologies (DBBT) that will be in the line with needs of business partners from the labour market from the region and in line with modern study programmes from EU countries. The students will be able to apply their knowledge (practical and theoretical) immediately after graduation.
In the kick-off meeting the management bodies and WP leaders will be elected and the complete plan of activities with detailed schedule will be presented to all partners. Also, the initial workshops will be organised then. In order to rich the aims and objectives, both teams – from EU and Western Balkan countries will analyse study programmes of counterparts, compare them and with the help of business partners from the labour market define the guidelines for design of new curricula. Also, the representatives of WB countries will through study visits to EU partner HEis and trainings by experienced EU professors gain enough knowledge to design the curricula for new study programmes and start teaching in newly introduced study programme as soon as WB HEIs got accreditation from National accreditation body.
The knowledge that students will gain through the studies will not be only theoretical, but also practical because the DBBT laboratory will be set up during the project. Also, the partnership protocol will be signed between HEIs and regional business partners for the students’ internships and among partner HEIs for long-term cooperation on teachers’ and students’ mobility.
