The labour market requires a new profile for the telecom engineer: a professional that is trained in the broad ICT domain, that owns both technical and market-oriented skills and, therefore, that can contribute to the techno-economic society challenges. To render the study program more attractive and to boost the telecom engineer profile, the project BENEFIT is working on three main pillars:

A) the cooperation between Western Balkan universities and industry to modernize the study program in telecommunication engineering;

B) the adoption of modern teaching methodologies and tools, the upgrade of the infrastructure, and the creation of joint university-industry labs;

C) the implementation of training of both teachers and students.

Furthermore, to increase the level of cooperation, visibility and sustained opportunities the project has developed an integrated e-platform giving access to class material for e-learning, training/internships in the region, listing of universities and companies, employment opportunities, and events of both technical nature and accessible to the general public.
