SINTESI
Analysis of the markets in China, Malaysia and Thailand demonstrate that there is a strong demand from relevant industries in new generation of engineers which have a deep and comprehensive knowledge in Integration of Sustainable Renewable Energy Solutions into Built Environment, since this sector is expanding rapidly in Asian Region due to combination of Governmental policies and NGO initiatives along with significant investments from international companies.

The current content of modules and teaching methods used at China, Malaysia and Thailand Universities in this subject area must undergo deep modernisation processes with input from EU Universities.

In their studies, PhD students in partner Universities mostly use knowledge gained from local practices and literature sources;

The strong need in modernisation of syllabus and its enhancing for all three cycles of education in Integration of Sustainable Renewable Energy Solutions into Built Environment is the reason that consortium wishes to undertake this project.

The project aim is the deep modernisation of existing syllabus of selected main modules for Bachelor, Master and PhD level students in this subject area in Chinese, Malaysian and Thai Universities, improving quality of education and teaching, which includes enhancing existing and application of new learning and teaching tools, methodologies and pedagogical approaches. This will also involve modernisation of learning outcomes and ICT based practices with introduction of virtual mobility for students and practical placements in companies. Academic, technical and administrative staff also will improve their qualifications through special training provided by EU academic staff.
