Abstract [en]

Today environmental safety, green energy, and ecological engineering became a top priority as a result of negative impact of human activities on the environment, current rates of industrial development and globalization. Higher education sector has a responsibility to those challenges as a key player in the successful transition to a knowledge-based economy and society. The problems, which society is facing today, could be mitigated by training highly qualified professionals with expertise in green information and communication technologies. International Erasmus Mundus Master Programin Pervasive Computing and Communications for Sustainable Development (PERCCOM) aims at combining advanced information and communication technologies with environmental awareness. Program provides unique competences for ICT professionals who will be able to build cleaner, greener, more resource and energy efficient cyber-physical systems.The paper defines a cross-disciplinary approach of master degree program in green ICT. The method used for defining the pedagogic program content focuses on the competences in order to ensure sustainability of the program in term of employability. The paper covers such aspects as training the ability to develop tools and software for sustainable development, as well as educating open-minded professionals familiar with international research environment.
