Some R&D Projects

The project is primarily aimed at counteracting the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the academic education process at technical universities. In accordance with the restrictions and with an aim to prevent spread of the virus many universities made a decision to transfer all studies, including practical classes, at fully online from. Due to that fact that practical classes were either not implemented at all or were carried out in a very narrow and simplified (impractical) manner. The goal of the RELABEMA project will be the development of a set of laboratory exercises in mechatronics and electric drive and their integration into a commonly used e-learning tool, which is the Moodle platform.

Advances in Information, Automation and Electrical Engineering


Development of projects for Higher Education, academic content sharing by tutoring in the partner institutions targeted to improve study programme content, as well as improved teaching content e.g. lectures, and practical works in English, Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian on topics: Computer Sciences; Applied Informatics; Industrial Safety; Critical Infrastructure; Information security; Cybersecurity; Information and Communication Technologies; Ambient Intelligence; Intelligent Systems and Software Engineering; Design of Adaptive Systems; Cyber-physical systems; Fundamentals on Critical infrastructure control; Electrical engineering; Power electronics; Internet of Things; Smart Electrical Technologies; Fundamentals of Industrial Computer Networks; Supervising of Scientific Project - Entrepreneurship - Innovation management; Metrology and mathematical modelling; Energy Effective Technologies; Innovation Strategy Management; Electrical processes and equipment; Elements of Automatics; Saving of Energy in Electric Engineering Devices.



The epidemiological as well as political situation has brought forward the absolute necessity to enhance the quantity and quality of technical education e-learning in the Belarusian higher education system. The given project proposes the teaching materials and good practices exchange in the field of energy conversion technology between Tallinn University of Technology and Belarusian State University of Technology. During the project fresh and novel technical study materials are translated into languages fit for Belarusian universities and the materials will be adjusted to fit the curricula through e-learning. In addition, knowledge of hybrid and distance learning in technical education is transferred between partnering universities. Technical visits regarding the same topic are planned.
