Enhancing Education and Research in Networking and Communications Engineering

Research summary

The ENhHANCE project proposes enhancements for SECE-AAiT and CoICT-UDSM in engineering education, research capacity and industry outreach through collaborative activities with COMNET-Aalto. The COMNET-Aalto department is a long-established and leading unit for research and education in Finland in the area of networking and communications engineering, and plans to leverage that extensive knowledge and experience for the benefit of the partner HEIs (SECE-AAiT and CoICT-UDSM).


The target outcomes for ENhANCe project activities can be summarized as follows:
•Introduction of new courses and pedagogical methods that strengthen the Master’s and Doctoral-level curricula (in the area of communications and networking) at both ECE-AAiT and CoICT-UDSM;
•Development of a new Master’s level study programmes in the area of communications and networking for CoICT-UDSM;
•Transfer of wireless technology research tools and research methodologies to ECE-AAiT and CoICT-UDSM
•Introduction new initiatives to the industry outreach programs and enforcing their linkages to the ECE-AAiT and CoICT-UDSM research and education programs
