Higher Education Leading to Engineering and scientific careers

HELENA is a project which is funded by the EC Seventh Framework programme. The aim of this project HELENA is to collect and analyze literature and data from traditional and pilot confirmed European Higher Education E&T curriculum in order to question or confirm these statements and to provide indications about how to launch such measures and monitor the obtained results. The study will be then grounded on empirical research about traditional E&T curriculum in Europe and will compare them to selected pilot degree courses, which successfully integrated societal impacts in their engineering and technology (E&T) degree course all over Europe.
