Training & Adult Education

We deliver four categories of training programs for skill development dedicated to postgraduates and employees:

  • specialization educational programs - these are programs that include several training modules, are run over a longer period of time (e.g. 5-7 months) and lead to a collection of skills that define a new profession
  • educational programs - these are programs that are not necessarily focused on a given technology or technologies, but rather develop competences to better understand a topic under consideration (e.g. smart city concept, AI concept, etc.)
  • training programs - these are hands-on, short-term trainings focused on a given technology and lead to the development of a new category of skills (e.g. skills to program image processing in Python, skills to program industrial robots in RAPID, etc.)
  • training and consultancy programs - these are short-term trainings to develop competencies in a certain practical activity followed by assistance to introduce new practices in the company

Training Programm: Applying Python in Machine Learning

The Applying Python in Machine Learning is a fast track enablement course aimed to provide essential elements of machine learning and acquire a good starting point for addressing the machine learning’s advanced elements.

Ensuring an excellent combination of theoretical and practical elements, this course ensures both a very good understanding of the central concepts in machine learning and the foundation of the practical approach using Python libraries dedicated to machine learning.

Educational Program: Create new opportunities for SMEs in the vast domains of Cyber-Physical Systems

Is your SME (small and medium enterprise) providing digital technologies?

Join the HUBCAP programme and we will help you with the process of finding new customers and selling your assets.

Within the HUBCAP project (www.hubcap.eu), coordinated by University of Aarhus, Dk, the OpenCall PULL #1.1 competition for SMEs was opened. Call PULL is looking for innovative European SMEs providing digital technologies in multiple application domains. Each PULL call provides a mini-grant of €1,000 to help individual SMEs integrate existing CPS (Cyber-Physical Systems) and MBD (Model-Based Design technology and tools in the HUBCAP collaboration platform.

The asset integration is supported by the DIHs (Digital Innovation Hubs) through the participation in workshops. SMEs are invited to define the price structure for their assets and will thus benefit from exposure in the HUBCAP marketplace, as well as the opportunity to find new customers and participate in the subsequent EXPERIMENT and INNOVATE calls.

Specialization Educational Program: Work 4.0

Under the framework of the project "Future of Work" you have the opportunity to attend training modules on two key areas of competence - Industry 4.0 and Digital Technologies for Creative Engineering.

We have 14 training modules. Each module will last for 24 hours face-to-face interaction with the trainer, meaning 4 days x 6 hours / day. For each training module we will allocate 4 weeks, such as trainees to have time to perform their job and to consolidate their knowledge and skills.

For each training module we expect to have different groups of participants. In principle, we consider two categories of participants: people interested in industry 4.0 technologies in relation with smart factories, smart environments and smart products (7 training modules); people interested in technologies for creative engineering (7 training modules). The two groups can run the training in parallel.

The first series of training is going to start in May 2020 and to end in December 2020.

Industry 4.0:

  • Building Blocks of Industrial Internet of Things
  • Industry 4.0, Pneutronics and Factory Automation
  • Programming Languages of Collaborative Robots / Cobots
  • Programming and Applications with Intelligent Robots
  • Distributed Control in Robotics with Open Source Systems (ROS)
  • Competitive Design of Smart Connected Consumer Products
  • Control and Monitoring Systems for Smart Buildings and IoT

Digital Technologies for Creative Engineering:

  • 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing
  • Video Editing
  • Effective Content for Immersive Environments
  • Augmented Reality I
  • Augmented Reality II
  • Interactive 3D Applications and Video Games with Blender
  • Virtual Reality

Training Program: Industrial Robot Programming I

It last for 56 hours of intensive training and covers all key aspects, from basic instructions to advanced issues such as multi-tasking and robot-to-robot collaboration, communication with external units, GUI, client-server applications. Exercises will cover the most frequent industrial applications. Training is activated upon request.

Educational Program: Artificial Intelligence for Everybody

This training module is about introducing to non-IT people the "hot" topic of Artificial Intelligence such as to understand how and where it can be used to improve performance of businesses. We open this opportunity to people from SMEs and large companies, schools, hospitals, administration, and any other non-IT business. In this training you will understand the "world" of artificial intelligence with topics related to Machine Learning (ML), Artificial Neural Networks (ANN), Genetic Algorithms (GA), Data Science (DS), Data Mining (DM), Elements of Artificial Vision (AV), and Fuzzy Logic Systems (FL). The course can run in weekends and lasts for 4 sessions of 8 hrs/session.

Please see the next links that highlight the summary of the training module:

Training and Consultancy: Management of Procurement using Digital Systems

Management of procurement, reception and induction of software systems. How to prepare the functional and technical specifications, the evaluation criteria and the contract, how to ensure that the optimal supplier is contracted and the implementation is successful - Training, workshops, direct assistance.

Educational Program: Business Process Modelling for Digitalization

Business process analysis, optimization, modelling and digitalization. It is applicable for private and public institutions.

Training Program: Artificial Intelligence for Facial and Emotion Recognition

We offer a training module for learning to design, software implement and evaluate a system for monitoring facial expressions / emotions recognition (FER) with the applicability on “workplace safety: determine employees’ emotion recognition”. Is based on monitor a machine operator and detect the operator’s emotional state to avoid accident or determine drivers fatigue in the case of car driving and alerting in advance.
