The IoTrain international project aims at enhancing the IoT skills of the engineers by developing and strengthening the Iranian HE training and curricula with state-of-the-art European standards and technologies. The goal of the project is the establishment and alignment of study programs for a Master of Engineering in Internet of Things for serving the industry in Iran and Iraq. The project aims to strengthen the links between university-enterprise cooperation, entrepreneurship and employability of graduates in Iran and Iraq, and to encourage the culture of practice-oriented and industry-motivated training in Iranian and Iraqi HE systems which are historically more theoretically oriented.

At the end, a discussion panel will focus on summarizing the key requirements in the target curriculum that could fill the current gap between academia and industry needs
