Every summer semester starting from 2015, Colibri offers students an opportunity to participate in a unique course - Future Internet Opportunities, designed for master students specialized in any subject related to Information and Communication Technologies. It gives the students an introduction to opportunities and challenges in the Future Internet, seen from both technical and business perspectives.
Students taking the course will participate in the following learning activities:
- A virtual kick-off seminar, where the students get introduced to the blended learning activity, the overall learning objectives and the methods and tools used. Depending on the specific track, each student will describe how he will reach the learning objectives of the course (specific learning objectives).
- A period of virtual mobility with focus on course activities, where the students follow a number of modules designed to allow for different entry levels, taking into account that students come with different backgrounds and prerequisites (Personalised learning). Depending on the student backgrounds, they are assigned roles, which they will later undertake in the student projects. Depending on the roles they will follow the different modules at either basic level or up to advance level.
- A physical midway seminar (April), to round off the courses, and introduce the student projects and project groups. The student projects are based on real-world problems/cases, and defined by the industrial partners in the programme, with the possibility that other companies may also participate with proposals. The involved company will also be available for additional information, feedback etc. EKT/NHRF will also propose projects, where the starting point will be a start-up company with a specific market idea. There will be 7 groups, each group will have a supervisor (one from each univ.)
- Another period of virtual mobility, where the students will be working on the student projects together.
- A physical final seminar (July), where the students will have time to work physically together to finalize the student projects, prepare a joint presentation for each group, and finally be examined.
The travelling and as accommodation expenses for the midway and final seminar will be fully covered by the project.
Each year, three to five students from each partner university will be admitted to this course. The selection process is handled separately by the partner universities.
Interested students may follow our Facebook page for further discussion about the project.
