Bar-Ilan is one of nine partner universities to take part in the “Internationalised Master Degree Education in Nanoelectronics in Asian Universities” (NanoEl). The project was kicked off in the beginning of 2017. NanoEl has received a grant as part of the Capacity Building in Higher Education program in the framework of Erasmus+.
The project aims at transferring knowledge between three EU higher education institutions and six institutions in China, Malaysia and Israel, and between the partner countries’ institutions to adapt, innovate and modernize existing curricula in Nanoelectronics in the three partner countries.
The partner universities include:
Technical University of Sofia, Bulgaria
Politecnico di Torino, Italy
Høgskolen i Sørøst-Norge, Norway
University of Malaya, Malaysia
Utar Education Foundation LBG, Malaysia
Graduate University of Chinese Academy of Sciences, China
Chongqing University of Technology, China
University of Mumbai
Tel Aviv University, Israel
Bar Ilan University, Israel
NanoEl seeks to develop new certified courses, to test innovated curricula and to disseminate the results. It addresses the regional priorities of the Asian countries and the national priority of Israel for development of learning and teaching tools, applying the approach with learning outcomes and ICT-based practices, but also the national priorities of all involved partner countries in development of nanotechnologies.
The partner universities will share infrastructure as well as technological and human resources to develop certified e-learning modules for at least 12 courses, designed for specific learning outcomes to be used in the partners’ MSc programmes in Nanoelectronics. Thereby, NanoEl aims to modernize curricula in the partner countries through sharing facilities and expertise in the development of Nanoelectronics courses where no university can afford sufficient infrastructure and equipment on its own. The internet courses developed within the project will provide new opportunities for cooperation between Asian and EU universities in sharing of knowledge and educational resources.
