According to INPIA, this morning, the 39th meeting of the Education Commission of the National Association was held at the Iranian Polymer and Petrochemical Research Institute. The meeting was attended by university professors and activists in the field of education in the polymer industry. First, a report on the course held by the National Association for Digital Marketing was presented by the Secretary of the Education Commission of the Association. Regarding this course, Maryam Damghani said: “Digital marketing workshop was held with the welcome of members and we also had participants from cities such as Isfahan and Yazd.” In this 16-hour course, discussions and digital tools were taught so that companies could use these tools to promote their business. Then, the issue of “making the syllabus of polymer engineering more practical” in universities was discussed. Dr. Mehranpour, a faculty member at the University of Science and Research, explained: “One of the criticisms is that our students have an academic view of industry when they graduate, and are far removed from applied and industrial forms.” He then introduced some models to change the syllabus, emphasizing: There is a model that I think is very industrial and practical that is used in some major universities in the world that we last year a plan according to this syllabus We prepared it and presented it to the Ministry of Science, but unfortunately no work was done in the Ministry of Science. Alireza Turk, the head of the Education Commission, also explained: “In my opinion, when we enter into more practical discussions such as the industrial process, the producers’ satisfaction with the students is very low.” Students at the university do not get acquainted with the processes, etc., that this defect must be corrected, because not only will the industry suffer, but as a result, many of our students will be unemployed after graduation. Our industrial and national interests are tasked with somehow filling this gap. Dr. Ghasemi, a faculty member of the Polymer and Petrochemical Research Institute, also stated: “Considering the records that have already been seen from the Ministry of Science, in my opinion, there is no change in the syllabus.” I suggest that the National Association itself, by establishing a conservatory or school, teach with standard syllabi. Then, Dr. Azizi, a faculty member of the Polymer and Petrochemical Research Institute, suggested: “We can, like other major universities in the world, hold summer classes in the form of summer classes in the polymer faculties of different universities for more practical education.” This solution both escapes the bureaucratic system of the Ministry of Science and causes us to train better students and deliver the industry. After discussing and exchanging views of the members present at the meeting, it was concluded that short training courses should be held for students so that the National Association can participate in the preparation of syllabi for these courses. In the end, they talked about the training courses of the National Association in Iran Plast exhibition. In this regard, the head of the commission suggested that we hold eight courses in general. These 8 courses can be in the field of exports, technical and industrial issues, etc., and each course will be about 1 to 1 and a half hours. It was decided that in the next meeting, the members will submit their proposals to the National Association so that the next meeting will determine the training classes of the association for the Iran Plast exhibition.
