of micro-credentials to those who wish to gain specific skills for up-skilling and life-long

partnerships with expert academic & IoT expert organizations in order to give to 40

students a solid background for starting a fruitful career in the industry. The course

duration is 16 months, plus a 1-month maritime (on the job) experience, a month after the

end of the teaching period. During the execution of the course, 3 mobility periods are

programmed. In the first two (14-day) ones the students & educators from one teaching

university will travel to the other and vice-versa, to participate in the large-scale

laboratories, whereas the 3 rd period (1 month) is reserved for the on-the-job training.

Although the course will be taught in English, local language lessons will be provided to

enable the participants to immerge in the local culture during mobilities. The course will

be open for participation for anyone with a basic civil, electrical, software or mechanical
