The project encompasses development of a new international education program in the field of "Internet of Things" (IoT) and implementation of a pilot project that will educate the first generation of students. An important element of the project is also development of a business plan, which will assure sustainability of the study program after the project is completed. The study program will be held in English, and it will include a modern approach to teaching, individual projects, and provide students with competences that positively influence employment and self-employment.

Project goal:
The project goal is to develop an education program in the IoT field (STEM) in the English language, according to the needs of the international labour market. The project aims at improving the quality and relevance of tertiary education through internationalization, which will be achieved by increasing the number of study programs and courses in foreign languages and by strengthening the competences of students and staff of tertiary education institutions.
