Start: 01.01.2010 End: 01.12.2013 Project Site: Project Coordinator: RU (3) BE, DE, LT, RO Project number: 511121-TEMPUS-1-2010-1-DE-TEMPUS-JPCR


The ECDEAST project objective is to ensure that Russian universities have advanced curricula for programmes in line with new development in the chosen engineering areas and according to the Bologna Process (EQF) and European standards for the quality of engineering education (EUR-ACE).

The main project outputs are:

  • Guidelines on engineering programme design;
  • New curricula of 3 engineering programmes at TPU, BMSTU and SPbSPU (one in each);
  • Updated syllabi and teaching materials of courses and modules with ECTS credits allocated to learning outcomes;
  • Trained faculty of TPU (25), BMSTU(25) and SPbSPU (25) for curriculum design;
  • Experience gained through teacher exchange (36), then shared;New programmes (3) implemented at TPU, BMSTU and SPbSPU (one in each);
  • Programmes evaluated by peers against EUR-ACE Standards;
  • Informative project website, promotional materials disseminated;
  • Book on engineering curriculum design.
