Rapid changing demands on firms and employees have forced Swiss universities and enterprises to set up a training partnership in the field of information and communication technologies. The post-graduate studies called NDIT/FPIT (Nachdiplomausbildung in Informatik und Telekommunikation / Formation postgrade en Informatique et Télécommunications) is a successful example of a collaboration between universities and technology oriented industry. The partnership is organized according to the model of a virtual enterprise. About 30 partner institutions contribute by offering standardized modular courses in their special domain. The compact courses are held all over Switzerland at the sites of the participating partners. The target public are engineers and project managers in the field of computer science, business information systems, automation, telecommunication and multimedia. Every year between 140 and 170 students enroll in the post-graduate courses, and they assemble their individual curriculum from the modular program according to their professional needs. The geographically distributed course providers and the collaborative organizational concept with modular courses and highly motivated students make this program an ideal test bed for the implementation of new educational technologies. The project intends to transfer the experiences gained within pilot courses to the rest of the course program.
