Building student skills trough a global project semester

Main Challenge/Objective

To upskill and train students for employment by giving them necessary skills to work in a 21st century environment. This will take the form of the development and delivery of a semester long module focusing on a ‘real’ industrial project, supported by skills development: team building, cultural awareness, project management.

The project is focusing on internationalizing the curriculum that involves providing students with global perspectives of their discipline and giving them a broader knowledge base for their future careers. This in turn helps to provide them with a set of values and skills to operate in diverse cultural environments e.g. skills / intercultural competencies / cross-cultural capabilities. These are in relation to graduate attributes and global citizenship.
