The objective of the TATU project is to meet the challenges of the knowledge-based socie-
ty, to enhance the competitiveness  of companies and to improve the employability of em-
ployees and future graduates in Ukraine.  
 
In the realms of the TATU (Trainings in Automation Technologies for Ukraine) Tempus Joint
Project is offered the following:

●  To prepare future trainers for students and postgraduates after the end of the project 
●  To enhance the employability of the university graduates in the fields of industrial au-
tomation.
●  To evaluate the training materials in accordance with the specific needs of the Ukrain-
ian market 

To foster international academic mobility and student exchange experiences through
participation in trainings in industrial automation.

●  To provide distance learning / open learning platform (also accessible from mobile
post-PC devices - Smartphones, Tablets etc) for university and non-university teach-
