Development of an aviation aerospace mechatronics technician curriculum



AMTECH Erasmus+ project consortium flies to Málaga for the European Aviation Aerospace Mechatronics Passport

The Erasmus+ AMTECH (Aviation Aerospace Mechatronics Technician) project working group from Germany, Italy, Belgium, Spain, Latvia and Poland met at the Internet Web Solutions premise, in Málaga to celebrate milestones in transforming Vocational Education.

The agenda consisted of insightful presentations and discussions in the areas of analysis of usage of all the Product Results (PR) of AMTECH such as the PR1 - AMTECH OER Platform (OER Platform 24/7 available in 6 languages); PR3 - Development of an AMTech Curriculum and Test&Validation and PR4 - Development of a European Aviation Aerospace Mechatronics Passport.

Another important topic discussed during the meeting was the dissemination and communication of all the open educational resources created. Dissemination is crutial to share the outcomes of their research and development activities with other interested parties, ensuring that the acquired knowledge is accessible to a broader audience. This promotes transparency and collaboration in the context of research and innovation.

As regards the PR3, the training-related glossary ( ) will help maintaining terminological consistency throughout the training studies. In a European project, there may be students with different mother tongues. The AMTECH multilingual glossary will be helpful in translating key terms uniformly and promoting fairness in access to information.

The AMTech project stems from the demand for specific training tailored to the needs of technicians-to-be, microenterprises and SMEs.

Throughout this collaboration, partners exchanged experiences and ideas – creating new, innovative or joint Aerospace Mechatronics Technician Curriculum in 6 European languages available at:  

The project, which is co-funded by the European Union via Erasmus+, started the on January 2023 and will proceed until the 31st of January 2024. It aims to bridge the gap between vocational education and the aviation industry's evolving needs, contributing to the economic resurgence of Europe in alignment with green and digital transitions.
