The CEPHEI consortium consists of one coordinator university, Lappeenranta University of Technology (Finland), and eight partner universities from six countries:
- University of Twente (the Netherlands);
- KTH Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden);
- MEF University (Turkey);
- Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (Russia);
- Tomsk State University of Control Systems and Radioelectronics (Russia);
- Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas (Russia);
- Tianjin University (China);
- Hebei University of Technology (China).
Vladimir State University (Russia), is an associative member of CEPHEI.
All courses developed by consortium and included on the CEPHEI Platform must meet the following standards:
- meet the demands of knowledge, skills, and experiences as determined by industry needs;
- include innovative knowledge, encourage the development of soft skills, and include authentic experiences;
- meet the required standards depending on course type;
- meet the CEPHEI course specifications, as outlined in the section above.
Programme outcomes of CEPHEI courses
The CEPHEI courses are envisioned to be part of a QF-EHEA 2nd Cycle - EQF level 7 program. Thus, the program learning outcomes were set in accordance to EQF level 7, with the only modification of making them to refer to engineering. These are as follows:
- Highly specialised knowledge, some of which is at the forefront of knowledge in engineering, as the basis for original thinking and/or research.
- Critical awareness of knowledge issues in engineering and at the interface between different fields.
- Specialised problem-solving skills required in research and/or innovation in order to develop new knowledge and procedures and to integrate knowledge from different fields.
- Manage and transform work or student contexts that are complex, unpredictable and require new strategic approaches.
- Take responsibility for contributing to professional knowledge and practice and/or for reviewing the strategic performance of teams.
