ANTITESYS - A Networked Training Initative to Embedded Systems Design
The objective of ANTITESYS is to address the shortage of highly skilled personnel in designing and manufacturing embedded systems. The consortium is composed by four European technical schools (Politecnico di Milano; ALaRI Institute in Lugano; EPF Lausanne; Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya) and by a group of microelectronics and related companies (ST Microelectronics, Mentor Italia and TXT in Italy; IPLS in Ireland; IMEC in Belgium; INTRACOM in Greece; Infineon in Germany). The project provides for a number of training initiatives, built around the "Master of Engineering in Embedded Systems Design" held at ALaRI. They are: grants for students from candidate countries; support to joint master projects with industry; dissemination of course contents through summer schools and in-house courses at industry´s premises; set-up of a mobility scheme for students (ECTS) and of a support infrastructure for remote learning and tutoring.
