In contrast to the challenges, the micro-modules offered by the different ECIU University members are short training capsules which allow students to learn more about the United Nations' SDG #11, acquire additional skills to help them solve a challenge, or even just learn a new language.

Students can choose any of the micro-modules offered by the different European universities.

The ECIU University is now offering over 40 micro-modules at its different European partner universities. There is a variety of subjects to choose from, including empathy and innovation in intercultural skills, gamification and negotiation skills, foreign languages, etc.

These micro-modules are short training courses lasting anywhere from weeks to months, and they have been designed to allow students to acquire fundamental skills needed to solve the ECIU University challenges, delve deeper into the subject of Sustainable Cities and Communities (United Nations' SDG #11), or even learn a new language.

Although the ECIU University challenges and micro-modules are connected, they are independent elements: even if enrolling in a micro-module can be seen as useful for solving related challenges, students can only enrol in one of these two experiences, according to the needs and preferences of each person.

To sign up, the ECIU University website has compiled all micro-modules open for registration and starting in the fall of 2022. Participation (attendance-based, online or semi-online) will be detailed in the admission requirements, as well as registration deadline and how to register, each of which varies depending on the micro-module and the coordinating university.

Of the 42 micro-modules offered by the different partner universities, the UAB offers five: Creating Digital Objects, where students will observe the process of creation of data to the editing of the points cloud and the incorporation of the metadata; Design Thinking – From idea to reality, which aims to help students in the process of analysis, concretion, and materialisation of ideas to transform them into real projects; Inkscape for Beginners, where students will learn to use this program to create their own models of laser and vinyl cutting; and two language courses, Spanish and Catalan.
