NiCAT a partner on SYNERGY project

The Faculty of Electronic Engineering in cooperation with NiCAT cluster started a project “SYNERGY – Systemic cooperation in the field of advancing the curriculum, teaching process, practices and introducing the new employees to business in companies between the Faculty of Electronic Engineering and companies from the field of advanced technologies.”

Within the project of systemic cooperation between the Faculty of Electronic Engineering, as the main partner in the project, and the companies from the field of advanced technologies, it was necessary to create a permanent channel in order to adapt the curriculum to the companies’ needs in a timely manner, introducing both the latest technological themes and business skills, and also to arrange the practice and introduce the new employees to the companies in the right way.

To get the most effective results, NiCAT conducted a research that consisted of filling in a questionnaire by the companies, students and alumni of the Faculty of Electronic Engineering and the accademic community. The findings of the questionnaire were presented at workshops which were conducted at the Faculty of Electronic Engineering, and the results of the research were used to design the study. The project resulted in establishment of a faculty body that will work on implementing suggestions for curriculum enhancement in the next period.

The project of the Faculty of Electronic Engineering where the NiCAT cluster was a partner was financially supported by the Office for Local Economic Development and Projects.
