Exchange with international universities 2019

The discussions with international universities is one of the key points of knowledge exchange. In December 2019, Prof. Olfa Kanoun and her team had an intensive meeting with international colleagues. Various discussions about academic methods, education and research opportunities were held.

Within the Sousse-Chemnitz Cooperation for Higher Education, the Chair of Measurement and Sensor Technology at Technische Universität Chemnitz, welcomed Tunisian partners from the National Engineering School of Sousse (ENISo), the National Engineering School of Sfax (ENIS), the Higher Institue of Applied Science and Technology of Sousse (ISSATS) and the Higher Institute of Informatics and Media of Sfax (ISIMS).

International Winter School on Internet of Things (IoT-2019)

IoT workshop led by Prof. Mohammed Salameh Ibbini and Prof. Olfa Kanoun within the cooperation program between the Jordan University of Science and Technology and the Chemnitz University of Technology funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). An Example of a working project that is a win-win where the two universities are gaining and students are getting skills and real competencies. Result of ten scholarships, two doctorate students, many stagnates and publications. Now workshops are continuing virtually as opposed to face-to-face hoping to resume once the pandemic is behind us.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the most emerging topics in the technology sector, which enables connect different types of physical devices around the world to the internet. IoT is generally known as the network of things, which refers to devices or sensors responsible for sensing and communicating collected data from the application field. The IoT is based on monitoring and remote control for the most basic, predictive analysis and collaborative approaches for complex applications, where sensors present the key feature for extracting and quantifying gathered data. The collected data makes it possible to make better decisions faster, highlighting the important role of sensors in decision-making logic.

The Chair of Measurement and Sensor Technology at Technische Universität Chemnitz organizes the International Winter School on Internet of Things in cooperation with the German Chapter of the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society.
