“In order to improve the education of future engineers, new learning programmes based on the real need of industry will be created” – says Sandra Dakulović.
Could you tell us something about the project “Work Integrated Learning in University Education”?
– Messer Tehnogas is recognised as a reliable partner in the project “Work Integrated Learning in University Education”. In this joint project, which is supported by German development agency “Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit” (GIZ), Messer Tehnogas and GIZ will be partners with the University of Belgrade’s Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Faculty of Technology and Metallurgy. The basic approach is to narrow the gap between the academic curriculum and practical work and know-how.
Where will the programme be conducted?
– The programme will be conducted at Messer’s plants in Belgrade, Smederevo and Kraljevo, where students will work at the company. Students from the aforementioned faculties will complete their Master’s thesis at Messer’s plants, depending on their subjects, and will have a chance to learn from the company’s experts and gain applicable practical knowledge in areas connected with the industry.
As a company, we invest in the training and development of our employees and were pleased to join this valuable project, because we believe that people are the most important resource.
This is also our chance to support young students in Serbia in becoming confident and successful professionals and increasing their chances of finding adequate jobs and remaining in Serbia.
