Postgraduate and Industrial Training in  Sustainable Technology

Project Summary

There is an identifiable need to provide focussed support for training and business in sustainable development. The aim of the project is to develop, test and disseminate three open learning units allied to the subject area of sustainable development.  The project relies on a consortium of five university partners located in the UK, Sweden, Malaysia, North Philippines and South Philippines. A focus for the preparation of the open learning units will be at a newly formed Centre for Sustainable Development (CSD) based at De La Salle University, Manila, Philippines. The units will be applied to postgraduate programmes within the partner universities and also be used as industrial short courses. The target groups are academic staff and postgraduate students, companies and other organisation who will affiliate with the Centre for Sustainable Development during the term of the project. The project will investigate extensions to the units offered and conditions for quality assurance leading to proposals for an accredited International MSc Degree in Sustainable Technology. It is intended that the CSD will act as a centre for business cooperation between Asia and Europe. The EU funded project will run for a term of three years after which the activities are expected to be self sustaining.
