Education and training challenges in the era of Cyber-Physical Systems: beyond traditional engineering
2015 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
Education and training face several challenges as our society is evolving to become increasingly dependent on Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). We present and discuss how education is impacted, leveraging mainly a cross-domain investigation of CPS challenges of the EU CyPhERS project. In particular, the investigation revealed challenges that go beyond engineering education and that were found to be common across domains; (i) the need to consider and to include a broader set of stakeholders including policy makers and the general public to raise awareness of CPS technology implications (opportunities, risks and challenges), (ii) emphasizing human centered perspectives including sustainability and privacy in CPS education to make sure we end up with a human centric CPS-based society, (iii) improving the status of teaching, and (iv) supporting educational platforms and life-long learning capabilities. We conclude by discussing implications for educational systems.
