Recently, the Computer Science department in Brest has been granted two European projects:
DECART, a new Eramsus+ cooperation partnership in higher education for the Computer Sience Department. The DECART project (Design of higher Education Curricula for Agility, Resilience & Transformations) focuses on models, methods and processes to support transformations of curriculums in engineers and managers education systems, with a view to improving resilience. Coordinated by IMT Atlantique, the project mobilizes researchers from Reykjavik University in Iceland, Rennes School of Business in France, Vilnius University in Lithuania, University of KwaZulu Natal in South Africa, and Del Institute of Technology in Indonesia.
EASTEM 2019-21: Erasmus+ KA2 Capacity Building Partnership to improve employability of STEM graduates by ensuring students acquire skills needed in the workplace, coordinated by Uppsala University, with Vilnius University, Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology & Education, Hue University, Hung Yen University of Technology & Education, Del Institute of Technology, Udayana University, Institut Teknologi Bandung, Universitas Gadjah Mada, Chiang Mai University, Mahidol University, and Prince of Songkla University.
DAhoy 2017-20: Erasmus+ KA2 Strategic Partnership to investigate innovative educational ideas around Decision Making skills in VUCA situations, coordinated by the comptuer science department at IMT Atlantique, along with the Ecole navale, FREREF (Fondation des Régions Européennes pour la Recherche, l'Education et la Formation), City of Glasgow College, SCQFP (Scottish Credit & Qualifications Framework Partnership), Reykjavik University, and FUEIB (Fundacio Universita Empresa De Les Illes Balears).
Two projects for enhancing the quality of higher education, models and processes for continuous improvement were previously investigated by the Computer Science department in Brest:
- QAEMP 2014-16: Quality and Enhancement Market Place, 27 reference models for quality enhancement including a cross-sparring process, with Reykjavik University, Umeå University, Aarhus University School of Engineering, Metropolia University of Applied Sciences (Helsinki), Queen's University Belfast, and Aston University
- INSPIRE 2014-18: Erasmus Mundus entrepreneurship project with 10 South African universities (e.g. UCT, UKZN, Stellenbosch), inc. Faculty, Postdocs, and Ph.D mobilities.
