The “SMACITE – Boosting the technical and non-technical skills and competences of Smart City technicians and engineers” project, of which CEPIS is an associated partner, has opened the application process for the pilot of their Smart Cities Training course. The training will consist of 2 parts and begin in February 2024.
The course is aimed at students of universities and vocational education and training, as well as professionals from public and private sector, with good knowledge of basic ICT concepts such as software, hardware and programming. The selected participants will join online lessons on topics such as smart cities, IoT, cloud computing, machine learning, cybersecurity and more. These skills will be supplemented by lessons on horizontal skills as well, such as soft and entrepreneurial skills, to provide a fully rounded training.
The main aim of SMACITE is to address the skills gap of Smart Cities technicians and engineers by creating an education and training program based on a novel and multi-disciplinary curriculum combining digital skills on Smart Cities enabling technologies, with soft, entrepreneurial and green skills.
