Standardization and Digitalization of Rescue Education in Mining „DigiRescueMe”

logo DigiRescueMe

The general goal of the project is to produce two main specific outcomes for the vocational education sector. We would like to develop standardised and digitally enriched rescue education for target groups by using not only engineering but also psychological and pedagogical aspects. To create a safe environment, DigiREscueMe Project focuses on improving readiness, resilience and capacity of learners in vocational education. In addition to these, some additional achievements of the project are:

  • to improve the mental wellbeing and preparedness level of learners for rescue,
  • to create a mine-cave (simulator) for learners for improving their practice capacity and digital competences.

We will also produce tangible and intangible results which will be led by partners according to their expertise.

The project is realized in international cooperation. The leader is Kutahya Dumlupinar University from Turkey and the partners are AGH University of Science and Technology, Universidade do Porto (Portugal), Universita Degli Studi di Salerno (Italy), as well Turkish school Nurettin Çarmıklı Madencilik Mesleki ve Teknik Anadolu Lisesi from Balikesir region. Furthermore, the Technical School in Rybnik is cooperating and supporting the project.

The initial meeting was held in Burhaniye, Turkey 11-15 of May, 2022.

Specific objective of the project:To increase the competences of individuals involved in higher education, corresponding to the needs of the economy, employment market and society.

Main objective of the project:The main objective of the project will be to raise competencies of the project participants in professional, communicational, analytical and project skills. The project will be addressed to full-time second degree students of AGH University of Environmental Engineering and Construction before entering professional life. The dynamically developing economy and economic progress undoubtedly enforces increased demand for educated engineering staff. Therefore, there is a need to increase the chances of AGH students on the labour market. Due to a small percentage of women studying at technical faculties, there is a need to encourage students to acquire additional professional and communication competencies, which will undoubtedly improve their chances on the labour market. This will facilitate direct contact of students with industry companies, employers, entrepreneurs and modern technologies to improve their competences so that they respond to the real needs of the labour market. Consequently, it will also allow them to understand the actual functioning of a given industrial sector, which will greatly facilitate their entry into professional employment in the near future.

Project outcome:First and foremost, a measurable effect of participation in the project will be broadening of horizons and increased interest in the areas related to the fields of study. Therefore, students will be acquainted with the current needs and expectations of employers, they will considerably improve their competences and professional skills, they will be prepared to solve design problems indicated to them by employers or industry specialists. Certificates and validation will undoubtedly contribute to increased competitiveness at the beginning of professional career. The ability to operate and use specialized industry software will undoubtedly contribute to streamlining and increasing efficiency in future work. By teamwork on the projects, students will certainly acquire problem-solving skills. Therefore, the project will establish the profile of a FCERM graduate as well-qualified, with practical knowledge and skills that meet the needs of employers. The FCERM AGH project certainly responds to the key problems of students and employers.
