The need for creative engineers using natural sciences as their approach has not drastically changed in the past 100 years. However, technology advances has created new challenges and brought new opportunities, which calls innovation in engineering education. Todays, and even more so tomorrow´s engineers need to be equipped with both technical and soft skills that make them creative, and team player in the complicated, often complex environment industrial and societal challenges. In this study, we examined the outcomes of a workshop that focused on a learning approach called Challenge-driven Education (CDE) in the context of Internet of Things (IoT). The data for the study came from the participant feedback and was analysed using frequency analysis. The results show that teamwork and collaboration, joint discussions and self-improvement were valued.

A presentation given to the Workshop Towards an African Open Science Platform Infrastructure Framework at the 2017 Ubuntunet Connect Conference in Addis Abeba. The presentation describes the need for developing an emerging class of artisans responsible for building e-Infrastructure. Emergent patterns such as identity infrastructures, FAIR data, infrastructure as code and new skills and professions are discussed. It is proposed that in order to build healthy ecosystems for research infrastructure, certain skills are necessary. We cover the contributions of Sci-GaIA to the development of these skills (DevOps bootcamps, e-Research Hackfests) and show that the Africa-Arabia Regional Operations Centre is maintaining a viable ecosystem in which the artisans with these skills can thrive.
