ViMaCs: Virtual Master Cooperation Data Science

Project – ID: 57513461

The project aims to build a virtual learning and lab infrastructure for a digital teaching and module portfolio in the field of “Data Science“. The idea of the project is to embed three Ukrainian partner universities to a virtual master network with the FH Dortmund and its European partners.

Project Scope

  • Establish new model of a “Digital Education Ecosystem (DEE)” for Ukraine

Project Goals

  • Development of the consortium activities of the ViMaCs;
  • Development of four cross-border Master-Level-Modules for training in the framework of Data Science;
  • Joint organisation of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter Schools as cross-border courses;
  • Development and implementation of a digital infrastructure for joint teaching, learning and virtual mobility of students and staff;
  • Exchange of students, lecturers and staff between the partners.

Project Activities

ViMaCs Project has several activities for realisation of the project.

Project Events

For testing the developed modules (Pilot Teaching) several events are considered to be held.
