Towards Excellence in Engineering Curricula for Dual Education (TEEDE)
What is Dual Education? a complementary program of training mode between theory and practice in line with university and company. It is called “dual education” because students have to apply their alternative skills at two places simultaneously which relate academic studies to professional works of companies. The students conduct the studies as the learners for partial days of week in the school while the students contribute and coordinate their acquisitioned skill as trainees at the company for the rest of week. The dual education program has successfully been applied in several countries such as Spain, France, Germany and Switzerland. Its implementation leads to increment of high youth employment rate along with high demand of relevant skills. It also enhances the education curricula for competitive job markets. To align and develop this program in Cambodia, Institute of technology of Cambodia (ITC) is working collaboratively with both local stakeholders and international partnerships to make this program existed in Cambodia. As a member of the project, ITC is proudly to be a host of termly meeting of project of Towards Excellence in Engineering Curricula for Dual Education (TEEDE) which is funded by the European Commission and the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
Three programs were conducted as Dual Education Program:
- PhD Program in Food Technology and Nutrition, in collaboration with Insitut de Pasteur du Cambodge (IPC). A student registered in this program in 2018 with supporting from IPC.
- Master program in Water and Environment Engineering. There are three specializations: (1) Master program in Water and Resources Engineering, (2) Master program in Urban Water and Sanitation Engineering, and (3) Master program in Environmental Engineering and Management.
- Master program in Mechatronics and Information Technology, in collaboration with Solar Green Energy Cambodia Co., Ltd., et al. There are four students registered in 2019 and one student registered in 2020.
