12 September 2019 – Results of the survey on the
«Analysis of the market and training needs» will be
presented at 14th Conference on Sustainable Development of Energy, Water and Environment Systems
(SDEWES) in Dubrovnik, 1-6
This paper presents the results of a survey on the labour market and training needs in the field of
Thermal Power Systems (TPS) for cleaner environment.
The survey was carried out in the context of the ASIAXIS Erasmus+ European Project. The ASIAXIS
project addresses the topical theme of University
Teaching, at bachelor and master level, in “Thermal Power Systems for Cleaner Environment” in
Chinese, Russian and Kazakh partner Universities. The goal
of this project is to align quality of courses with EU requirements by implementing EU standard
quality assurance on the content of modernised modules,
on their teaching methods and on examination procedures. One of the objectives of the project is to
increase employability of graduates by national and
international industrial companies across partner countries and EU. The first step while designing a
Student Centred Study Program is the identification of
the educational needs by consulting relevant industries, labour market organisations and other
stakeholders. Hence, in the context of the ERASMUS+
ASIAXIS Project, a survey on the labour market training needs has been realized by the consortium.
More than 100 institutions have been identified for the
survey: 60 have already replied. These institutions are characterized by a significant number of
employees and an international market. In general, the
survey has confirmed the interest on engineers with enhanced knowledge on Thermal Power Systems
(TPS) on the topics that the Universities of the
partners Countries proposed for their modernization. Moreover, the results highlighted the relevant
perspectives of employment for engineers with
enhanced knowledge at all University levels (master in particular). More in details, the main fields
requested are: Internal Combustion Engines and
Combined Heat and Power; while the most needed skills are: control and automation, data analysis and
predictivemaintenance, structural analysis, CFD.
