Sector specific training

Professional Training Programs for Engineers

We develop sector-specific professional training programs for engineers from areas such as water management, energy and environment to integrate climate information into practice. These programs are developed with partners from science and practice and use target group-oriented methods and formats. The content-wise modular structure allows the training to be tailored to individual needs. The training programs also cover “train the trainer” concepts for instructors and those who disseminate information.

For example, a training program for hydraulic and environmental engineers is developed in cooperation with a technical university. The program focuses on what climate change and adaptation knowledge should be integrated into the hydraulic engineering field. The target groups are both trained engineers, instructors and decision makers in hydraulic and environmental engineering as well as graduate students at the technical university. The close connection between professional and academic education is thus to facilitate developing a novel concept for practise oriented education.
