Observing and learning from the past to protect our future: water

The Engineering School of the University of León  is organizing the Blended Intensive Programme Observing and learning from the past to protect our future: water, in collaboration with the University of Bordeaux (France) and the University of Weingarten (Germany). The course offers the possibility of advanced training to Bachelor and Master students and takes place online from the 8 January to the 11 February 2024 ( open course followed by moodle) and on-site from 12 to 17 February 2024, at the School of Engineering.

The idea is to prepare a practical course of 40 hours, worth 3 ECTS credits, about possibilities in the sustainable management  of water. There will be a program with online classes, and one week of a physical program full of activities thanks to the short mobility opportunities, to allow the collaboration among the students in international teams.

There will be very attractive excursions to strategic points where the correct use of water will be shown, and milestones in ancient times that are very important internationally will be visited.  For example, the largest Roman gold mining in the empire will be visited, exploited through the use of water, as well as water purification plants, medieval smithies where it was used as a working tool or energy production plants but in a sustainable and intelligent way, as living examples of options that we have to contribute to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly management of this resource. A space for exchange, which will offer tools to improve the presentation of technical work, learning teaching methodologies such as project-based learning, and all this in an international atmosphere.

The deadline for submission of the applications ends on 1 December 2023. This kind of mobility can be funded as Blended Intensive Programme.
