The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization has awarded the ViLLE learning platform developed by the Centre for Learning Analytics at the University of Turku with the 2020 UNESCO King Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa Prize. The Prize is given annually to two nominees whose projects promote learning and teaching with information and communication technology.
In the spring 2021, the University of Turku will establish the Faculty of Technology. The new degree programmes of Mechanical and Materials Engineering will support the University’s multidisciplinary field and prepare experts for the changing needs of professional life.
Teresa Lekari and Zahra Jahanshah Rad aim to combine research and business life. At the core of the projects is technology which can increase the lifetime of electronic devices.
