Joint MSc in Electrical Engineering (JMEE) Project

Aims & Objectives

The specific objectives are:

  1. To develop and implement a joint MSc programme curriculum in electrical engineering combining two modes of delivery; e-learning and face to face, to be jointly taught by universities in Palestine
  2. To promote the adoption of the Bologna system; QA procedures and ECTS
  3. To enrich the capacity of Palestinian academics by providing research collaboration opportunities with EU staff through joint MSc thesis supervision
  4. To equip laboratories to be utilized by students during their MSc studies
  5. To enhance links with Palestine local industry to provide relevant MSc projects and career paths for graduates.

The objectives will be achieved through a well-planned suite of activities:
