Advantages and Disadvantages of Online Teaching in Engineering

University Politehnica of Bucharest is offering engineering study programms on bachelor, master and PhD level. Although online support was permanently used in our education processes, total online, real-time teaching is a challenge for us. The “IT in aviation” interdisciplinary master study program developed within an KA-ERASMUS project is a good basis for presenting advantages and disadvantages of online education in engineering. The program combines two distinct specializations: IT and aviation and responds to specific requirements of the labour market, targeting students with different bachelor backgrounds. Thus, IT represents both subject of study and means for carrying out the program. The online teaching environment allows participation of students and teaching staff from different countries and offers additional advantages detailed in the presentation. Difficulties in building specific hands-on abilities and competences as well as performing the most appropriate evaluation are disadvantages of online teaching in engineering.
