The roles of these devices also increase in our daily life. As a result, classroom instruction is not enough to enable students to step ahead in time with the changes. In order to add to their developmental competency and understanding of problems, it is necessary to incorporate more knowledge for students from various resources that also are increasing in number. Encouraging students to join such activities is another channel enabling students to learn about new arising technologies that are truly applied in industries. Students will be able to acquire new knowledge and know how to cooperate with private enterprises for more experiences that they can use in their future occupation.
