The professional practice represents a necessity for the academic field given that the biggest challenge for an institution of higher education studies is to align the education offer with the labor market needs.
GIS works with Bucharest Polytechnic University in developing training programs and internships for students majoring in environmental protection. We provide an appropriate framework for strengthening theoretical knowledge, training skills and apply the knowledge acquired by students, according to the specialization for which the student instructs.
The practical activities were also designed to strengthen the relationship between the university and the economic environment, in this way ensuring graduates more likely to hold a job.
