After evaluation visit peers recommendations are to be applied for improvement of the programmes. The Russian partner universities will develop improvement plans for period beyond the project duration.

The experience gained through development and implementation of the new master programmes was used for revising of the Guidelines on engineering curriculum design that was updated and published.
