The Czech Technical University in Prague has been a partner in the project "EuroTeQ Engineering University", a consortium of 6 European universities, since 1st November 2020. The aim of the three-year project is to implement the visions of the "European Universities Initiative" and the "European Education Area" in the ecosystem of leading technical universities with the financial support of the European Commission, Erasmus + program A.1 - European Higher Education.

The project coordinator is the Technical University of Munich TUM (DE) and the partners are the Technical University of Denmark DTU (DK), the Technical University of Eindhoven TU/e (NL), Ecole Polytechnique l'X (FR), Czech Technical University in Prague CTU (CZ) and Tallinn University of Technology TalTech (EST).

The consortium of the EuroTeQ project was formed on the basis of long-term cooperation between the EuroTech Universities Alliance, the Czech Technical University in Prague and Tallinn University of Technology. The EuroTech Alliance also includes the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and the Technion Israel Institute of Technology, which are involved in the project without financial participation.

EuroTeQ focuses on the main vision of the European Universities Initiative and in the long-term will create a leading European platform for technical education and joint educational programmes so that graduates are able to respond to the changing needs of society. By sharing expertise and integrating into the European framework of study programmes, member universities will increase the overall quality of technical education. EuroTeQ also wants to connect the university environment and industry in the European Union in order to build a strong European foundation of science and technology that will be able to compete in an ever-growing global market. 45 industrial partners are involved in the EuroTeQ project, four of which are Czech: prg.ai, GasNet , Pražská energetika (PRE), Workswell. Cooperation with representatives of the Student Union and the CTU students is also envisioned. In the project students participate in EuroTeQaThon competitions for groups of students rated by expert panels. Project activities include the creation of a "Joint Course Catalogue" of partner organizations, "Micro-credentials" consisting of training courses/modules and a "Learning lab" for sharing teachers' practices reflecting new challenges.

Mission:  EuroTeQ is driven by a paradigm shift towards providing excellent education to our future engineers. Activities of EuroTeQ are based on a long-term strategy of cooperation at a new level. Innovative concepts of education are supported using digital services, integration of research into teaching, team-oriented work, and reflection on current societal challenges.
