Smart Grid Technology Project

Smart Grid Technology Project: from Research to Teaching

On September 12th the Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt hosted the meeting of the Erasmus+ project Smart Grid Technology – A Master Program.

It is a three years project  that aims at the development of a master program in smart grid technology through the collaboration between a consortium consisting of  3 European (Aberdeen University, Klagenfurt University, Seville University) and 4 Egyptian universities (Arab Academy for Science and Technology, Alexandria University, Aswan University, Helwan University) with key competence in different fields: electrical power  and control engineering,  information and communications engineering, mechanical/chemical engineering, industrial/management engineering.

The project will develop an up-to-date program with 24 courses, new laboratories, and involvement of the key stakeholders through a number of workshops, seminars and surveys.

“I am convinced of the importance of modernizing our curricula and establishing international cooperation which can enhance the interactions in both research and teaching involving students and scientists exchanges”, prof. Tonello says. “Smart grid topics and classes developed in this project will serve to broaden and strengthen our Master program in Information and Communication Engineering and render it more attractive”, prof. Tonello adds.
