Kick off Meeting

The kick-off meeting of the thinkBS project took place at Kadir Has University on 2 December 2019. The meeting was run as a workshop. Partners gave information on the status of mathematics and engineering education in each country, in order to have an idea on the needs of the target groups. The structure of the curriculum and the mechanisms to deliver courses are discussed. There will be three levels of courses with particular attention to engineering applications as elective courses. The courses are specified and assigned to partner institutions according to their expertise and interests.

Do not be guilty of possessing a library of learned books while lacking learning yourself.

The workshop also focused on the involvement of students and of the faculty which is a major concern. Instructors will encourage students to follow the modules of the blended learning program. Summer schools will be project oriented events. Students will be encouraged to form possibly international teams that can communicate via forums on the project webpage.
