Thematic Network E4: An Effective Tool to Improve EE in Europe
Borri, Claudio; Maffioli, Francesco
European Journal of Engineering Education, v28 n4 p425-434 2003
Among all TN projects approved and running under SOCRATES II, E4 offers the widest perspective over all Engineering/Technology education fields covering relevant and transversal issues, which are definitely not branch specific. The paper first introduces the general aim of the project, underlining the meaning of the European Dimension of EE (Engineering Education), to facilitate greater mobility of skilled personnel and ensuring integration of the different systems throughout the continent. Innovative contributions to international dimension and curriculum development, high standards, quality insurance and accreditation, use of ICT tools are the main subjects of the Network activities: these are described in details in section 2, which is followed by the strategic approach and principal outcomes (section 3 and 4 respectively). Organisation and dissemination are also key aspects of the project, dealt by 3 Transversal Actions, common to all activities and supporting the working groups outcomes, enhancing visibility.
