Year 2021

In March 2021, the RELABEMA project was launched

RELABEMA – Digital platform supporting remote laboratory classes in electrical engineering, mechatronics and automation
(ID KA226-HE-096163)
01.03.2021 – 01.03.2023

The project is an international initiative containing a set of innovative and educational activities devoted to achieve proper quality of teaching of practical classes at technical universities and in technical secondary schools. The project is primarily intended to counteract the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the education process at technical universities. Because of pandemic many countries decided to introduce classes realized in remote way. In case of practical classes, most of them were at the beginning realized only as a theory or simulations. Such an education is not effective in area of engineering. Teaching of practical aspects require proper preparation of laboratories, materials and teacher. It is therefore necessary to prepare required resources (labs, materials) to be adapted to carry out practical classes during remote education and allow to teach practical aspects of engineering. Under the project a set of hardware and digital laboratory tools adapted for remote education is developed in the field of electrical engineering, mechatronics and automation and related fields.

Relabema, March 2021

At the end of 2020, it became apparent that the Covid 19 pandemic would continue to occupy us in 2021. Among many restrictions, the usual guest lectures by our lecturers were not possible. Therefore, we prepared a series of online guest lectures for the summer semester 2021. There were 8 lectures on various topics – details. Almost all the universities in our network held lectures, some even several. The response from the students and staff of the partner universities was great and the dates were well attended – poster of the presentation. Stimulating professional discussions rounded off the events.

The half-yearly spring meeting of coordinators, traditionally organized in Zielona Góra, this time was held on May 18 online. During the meeting, its participants presented the current situation at their universities resulting from the restrictions caused by the pandemic and agreed on a cooperation plan for the next six months of 2021.

The CUCEE Annual Meeting of Coordinators 2021 took place at the THM. Unfortunately, not all colleagues were able to attend due to the pandemic situation. The talks took place in hybrid format. A student from the University of Zielona Góra also attended our meeting; he was completing his integrated studies at the THM at the time.

In December 2021, the REMAKER project was launched

REMAKER – Retraining of Fossil Fuel Mining Area Workforce for Modern Industry
(ID KA220-HED-3EF02A02)
01.11.2021 – 01.11.2024
KA220-HED – Cooperation partnerships in higher education

Taking into account the relatively low automation and robotization of the traditional fossil fuels industry, a significant retraining is necessary for the workforce in transition to modern technological industrial sectors. This has to be done, in order for the potentially available workforce to meet the needs and requirements set by the modern mechatronics oriented industry, which actively implements the Industry 4.0 ideology. To meet those requirements, the project proposes retraining courses for the soon-to-be-available workforce. The topics covered by the retraining are electrical drives, automation, robotics, power electronics, and condition monitoring of industrial systems. These separate fields are strongly interconnected and overlapping, and together with the connection point of IT technologies, they can be considered the main technological pillars of modern mechatronics oriented industry.
