Mission Statement:  Research and manage introduction of emerging technologies into MET educational processes to support cognitive learning in various course formats, and ensure students’ long-term success by linking academic knowledge with practical skills and competencies critical in modern workplace.

Main Research Areas

Video collaboration technology - a combination of online meetings and videoconferencing capabilities - helps to increase the level of student-faculty dialog in blended and online courses.



Virtualization is one of the disruptive technologies that opens new possibilities in many areas, including education.  We use it to support group projects simplify lab setups, and reduce hardware costs.
