IESM Faculty Member Presents at ICo-op Meeting in Austria
YEREVAN, Armenia- Sargis Zeytunyan, Lecturer and Program Chair of the American University of Armenia (AUA)’s Industrial Engineering and Systems Management (IESM) program, recently returned from Villach, Austria, where he presented at a Tempus ICo-op meeting about the training modules he has prepared to use in AUA’s IESM labs.
Zeytunyan serves as the coordinator of the Tempus Ico-op project, which aims to empower university-enterprises partnerships in Armenia, Georgia, and Ukraine by modernizing engineering education based on remote engineering and virtual instrumentation enhanced with transversal knowledge and competences at universities, as well as offering contemporary methods of the vocational education and training for adults in enterprises.
Currently, the IESM program sets up and configures the lab and tests the training modules that will be used in courses such as “Circuit Logical Design and Implementation of FPGA,” “Computer-Aided Design and Manufacturing for Beginners,” and “Principles of Software Engineering for Experimental Robotics.” Zeytunyan’s presentation covered the structure and content of the courses and provided a short demonstration.
AUA received their remote lab equipment in January 2015, which consists of a desktop milling machine Roland MDX-40A, desktop Elevator and Process Cell models, rapid prototyping boards, as well as FPGA and microcontrollers.
The next step in the project is organizing pilot trainings based on the prepared modules. The results of the trainings will be summarized and presented at the next ICo-op meeting, which will take place at the end of June in Batumi, Georgia.
