A key aim of HubLinked is to improve the effectiveness of University-Industry linkages between CS faculties and ICT companies. One of the problems identified as core to the Project was to match Learning Outcomes from different curricula with the requirements dictated by the ICT industry with the final aim to enhance students Graduate Skills and employability. Based on agreed core U-I linkage attributes, lower-level curriculum L0s have been designed and reviewed by industry partners. To enable the replication of this process, a tool was designed to make the comparison of graduates' skills from different institutions easily accessible. Using this tool across multiple institutes in Europe and Korea, institutes have been able to establish an academic basis of comparison for the industry-selected criteria. The result is a framework which can be used to design specific, industry-led pathways through institutes across the globe and improve the interface between universities and industry. The exercise of designing the process and the mapping tool is described in this paper.
