The aim of education co-operation
• To create study modules including courses
  from different universities for exchange
  students
• To inform students who are willing to study
  abroad about the possible courses. To this
  end a report of education in Nordic 5 Tech
  universities in the area of process systems
  engineering has been prepared using
  information on universities’ websites.
  Courses and organisation of the
           co-operation
• Prior to this meeting, the course lists have been
  sent to professors Skogestad, Jørgensen,
  Breitholz and Jacobsen, who have checked the
  validity of the courses in their field of expertise.
• As the course lists and modules will be updated
  in the future, a contact person responsible of
  taking care of the co-operation should be named
  in all participating universities.
         Forms of co-operation
            1. Master level
• At the master level, the common modules will be
  the most significant form of co-operation
• In addition to the normal courses, summer
  courses in varying topics could be included.
• Maybe master thesis works could also be done
  in any of the universities?
• Funding for this kind of co-operation could be
  raised from Erasmus exchange programme and
  the participating universities. Companies’
  support??

  raised from Erasmus exchange programme,
  Nordforsk (e.g. Researcer networks, research
  training courses, course scholarships), and from
  the participating universities. Companies’
