International PBL workshops were held at the Silesian University of Technology, carried out in cooperation with Sun Moon University from South Korea and the VSB Technical University in Ostrava.
The workshops were the culmination of jointly implemented PBL projects and their topics concerned various aspects related to future mobility. 110 students of various nationalities took part. In addition to students from Poland, South Korea and the Czech Republic, foreign students from these universities also took part in the workshops.
