This Project aims to enhance the capacity of the six consortium universities in EG and PS by enabling them to develop sustainable program in software engineering. The specific objectives of the Project are:

  1. To develop and implement the total of 12 modules in Software Engineering in partner country universities, using e-learning in teaching.
  2. To develop and implement a Masters Programme in Software Engineering jointly taught by universities in each partner country.
  3. To promote the adoption of the Bologna system (together with QA procedures and ECTS ).
  4. To improve the human capacity of partner country universities by providing research collaboration opportunities with EU staff members through joint thesis supervision.

These objectives will be achieved through the following activities: (i) short visits for the staff of partner country universities to EU institutions to prepare and develop the content of the module and e-learning methodologies; (ii) short visits for professors to EU universities to prepare teaching material for the new Masters Program; (iii) short teaching visits by EU professors to EG and PS; (iv) 3-month study periods for program students at EU universities for joint distraction supervision; (v) short visits by senior staff of partner country universities to IT to learn the experience of EU institutions which have adopted the Bologna system.

The direct target groups of this Project are the staff of the six partner country institutions, particularly the staff, and students on software engineering program.

This regional Project also aims to enhance the cooperation between universities in the region and with EU partner institutions. The EU partners of this Project have a rich experience of software education and a successful track record of previous Tempus projects which will ensure that the consortium will be able to meet the Project objectives.
