Summary

The LMPI project aims at establishing Bachelor's and Master's degrees for the protection of computer systems and networks in three Partner Countries: Vietnam, Moldova and Kazakhstan. The programmes will be entirely or partially delivered by distance learning. Additionally, in order to bridge skills gaps at both technician and engineer levels, the partners will develop a lifelong learning program for professionals who are already active in this field. The curricula developed in the framework of the LMPI project target the needs of private companies in need of specialists who can improve computer network security and protect them against cybercrime.

Description

Cybercrime affects almost all countries. In order to face it, well-trained specialists in advanced computer technologies are needed. The three participating Partner Countries - Vietnam, Kazakhstan and Moldova - suffer from a shortage of highly qualified graduates (managers, technicians and engineers) properly trained to address this major threat for companies. The need for university education aimed at training specialists in this field is, thus, very strong. Equally needed are academic and professional staff that can develop and deliver professional and continuing education to keep professionals abreast of the latest developments in this constantly evolving field. The LMPI project responds to these needs, by focusing on curriculum development in the area of computer systems and network security.

A survey of 500 companies will analyze the needs in basic and specific skills in businesses and therefore the training needs and specialization required for the Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. It will then list them, break them down into semester’s curriculum and different teaching units. The teaching units would be practical work, work laboratory, personal work and allocation of ECTS credits. It will then be possible to  design the courses contents and educational resources in each of the three countries and to set up a center of excellence in each of the three leading universities (resource center and technology platform equipped by the project).

The project envisages training courses that can be accessed online as well. Each partner university will build or adapt a didactic cyberspace in which all activities will take place. In order to respond flexibly to the businesses’ needs the project will also built a modular system covering all fields of network administration and security of computer systems (10 modules). In particular, they cover the following fields: cryptographic mechanisms and applications; administration and network security system; software engineering ; UML and security; certified and secure development; security application; wireless mobile devices; security organization and methods. In each region 50 professionals will be trained in this online course offer.


Objectives

The goal of the LMPI project is to improve computer system and network security of companies in Kazakhstan, Moldova and Vietnam by offering academic and vocational programmes that can develop the professional competencies and competencies needed by professionals in the field.

The project objectives are:

-  bridging skills gaps in the design and maintenance of corporate computer systems security, improving the competencies of students and professionals;

- professionalising universities’ curricula in the field of development, administration, management and protection of computer systems and networks in accordance with the Bologna Process and with the European Qualifications Framework (EQF), and delocalising part of the training in the companies;

- creating two new academic courses (Bachelor and Master Degrees) available through distance learning for the development, administration and protection of computer networks and information technology adapted to the needs of the local enterprises;

- training at least 270 students in each Partner Country during the first academic year (180 in the Bachelor’s program; 90 in the first year of Master);

- training 24 professors from partner universities in the new highly specialised disciplines;

- developing the e-learning platforms of the partner universities and making the digitalised materials available by distance as open educational resources;

- creating a lifelong learning modular system in the same field of education and train 50 professionals per country;

- creating a centre of excellence in each country available to students and universities to support the new offer;

- improving the employability of students and assisting them in becoming independent professionals in the field of computer security services;

- fostering integration of partner country students into EU study plans through double diploma agreements among EU and partner country universities.

THE PROJECT

    The project
The LMPI project seeks to establish e-learning Bachelor's and Master's degrees for the protection of computer systems and networks in three Partner Countries, Vietnam, Moldova and Kazakhstan. In order to bridge skills gaps at both technician and engineering levels, the partners will develop a lifelong learning program in this area for employers, the curriculum to be developed will meet the needs of private companies which are seeking specialists to protect themselves against cybercrime.

    The context
Cybercrime affects almost all countries. In order to face it, well-trained specialists in advanced computer technologies are needed. The three participating Partner Countries suffer from a shortage of managers, technicians and engineers to address this major problem. The need for the project which develops university education in this sector is, thus, quite evident.

    Innovative aspects
The project envisages training courses that can be accessed online as well. Each partner university will build or adapt a didactic cyberspace in which all activities will take place. The innovation in the development of the distance learning didactic approach will be coordinated by Uninettuno.
