Reg. Number: 609564-EPP-1-2019-1-EL-EPPKA2-SBHE-JP

Duration: 15.11.2019 – 14.11.2022


The main aim of the project is to develop Bachelor’s degree program in the field of Mechatronics and Robotics; to improve the mechatronics and robotics specialist’s knowledge in Automation sphere, to support the capacity building of higher education institutions and to make contribution for the sustainability of Mechatronics and Robotics. Likewise, the project aims to maintain further cooperation between HEIs of EU and Uzbekistan in order to ensure quality of higher education continuously 

This project provides great opportunity to involved HEIs to teach their students and train their faculty/staff internationally. Most importantly, an exemplary continuous education program in Mechatronics and Robotics will be developed in Uzbekistan upon successful completion of the project.

The project will be focused on the modernization of the existing Bachelor programs to expand the knowledge of the students in the field of Mechatronics and Robotics. BS students will the main beneficiaries of the project since the specialists in this field are highly demanded in the modern technological enterprises. The graduates will be able to operate the robotized industrial lines, design and maintain the complicated electronic equipment and robots. Students will obtain the cutting-edge knowledge and competencies and will meet the requirements of the industry and current trends of industrial development in Uzbekistan, thus increase their competitiveness in the labor market.

The project foresees the number of trainings for professors and researchers of the Departments of Mechanical and Computer engineering to improve the teaching and professional skills. Trainings organized within the project will rise significantly their qualification. The network of teachers and researchers as well as representatives of industry involved all consortium partners will ensure their continuous professional growth and will allow to share the teaching and research materials and information.

Its Consortium is composed of 13 institutions, of 6 are partner institutions from EU countries (Greece, Portugal, Latvia and Lithuania) and which 7 are Universities from Uzbekistan and Ministry of Higher and Secondary Specialized Education of the Republic of Uzbekistan.
