EuroTeQ Engineering University welcomes two new partners
“Since the foundation of the European EuroTeQ Engineering University in 2020, we have offered faculty and students the opportunity to experiment and implement new teaching, learning and innovation formats while involving corporate partners. Given the fast pace of technological and socio-environmental evolutions, a new collaborative and international approach to engineering education is crucial to prepare students for their future careers”, comments Éric Labaye, Chairman and President of École Polytechnique and Institut Polytechnique de Paris, adding: “We are delighted and grateful that the European Commission recognizes our work and we will continue our efforts to further develop the EuroTeQ Engineering University alongside two additional partner insitutions, HEC Paris and IESE Business School, and two important associated partners, including Institut Polytechnique de Paris.”
Over the next four years, 12.8 million euros from Erasmus+ will be invested in the partners' ambitious project entitled EuroTeQ 2030. EuroTeQ will focus on the following aspects:
- The EuroTeQ Campus will be expanded with diverse study programs that will provide 50% of students with an international experience in their studies in the future. The program already offers students the opportunity to take academic courses at partner universities. The EuroTeQ course catalog lists 128 courses the partner universities offer and to which École Polytechnique’s students can register.
- The EuroTeQ Collider enables unique challenge-based learning experiences in project teams with industry collaborations and teaches entrepreneurship skills. Vocational trainees and professionals are encouraged to participate.
- The EuroTeQ Academy is developing a lifelong learning offering for employees and external professionals and is to launch agile training opportunities on the market. These include Micro-Credentials and an Executive Program for Senior Specialists.
- The EuroTeQ Education Lab forms the interface between educational research and pedagogical practice, for innovative teaching formats and the internationalization of teaching staff.
EuroTeQ started in 2020 with six organizations, including Technical University of Munich (TUM), Denmark's Technical University (DTU), École Polytechnique (L'X), Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), Tallinn University of Technology (TalTech) and the Czech Technical University in Prague (CTU). In the new funding phase, two business schools, Spain's IESE and HEC Paris, will join as partners. Institut Polytechnique de Paris (IP Paris) becomes an associated partner of the EuroTeQ Engineering University, which also comprises the Swiss EPFL as an associated partner from outside the EU and many European companies and engineering associations.
