For the twenty-ninth time, the University of Debrecen is organising the IT Professional Days on Kassai út Campus. Among other things, students can meet corporate partners, listen to professional presentations and witness new collaborations. Nearly three thousand students are currently studying at the faculty teaching the dynamically developing sector.

Professional lectures, mock interviews, job and scholarship opportunities await those interested at the IT professional days of the University of Debrecen on Wednesday and Thursday. Students can get information from seventeen corporate partners.

Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Gróf Tisza István Foundation for the University of Debrecen György Kossa spoke about the dynamic development of the IT sector and emphasised the importance of cooperation.

“We work together with economic actors, industrial actors and and with other economic actors of a different nature who can bring fresh knowledge into this training system. In addition, we can carry out research and developments that benefit these economic actors,” György Kossa pointed out.

Several new cooperation agreements were signed at the ceremonial opening. According to Dean András Hajdu, the classical mathematical and logical foundation plays a central role in the formation of the educational portfolio, but it is crucial to respond to changes in the rapidly developing sector.

“Somehow these study materials, subjects, and new knowledge must be integrated into our training. We were able to solve this in such a way that since the latest results in the IT field come from the big technology companies, we can take over curricula  from them,” András Hajdu said.

In recent years, the number of students at the faculty has increased by 300 to 2800. Deputy Mayor of Debrecen Lajos Barcsa pointed out that thanks to the high level of university education, the labour market offers many opportunities for students in Debrecen.

“There are also programs in the city, the SmartCity program, the Environmental Control System, the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan, in the framework of which IT is unavoidable, and if we can work with local specialists, with people who know the city and are also good IT professionals, then together we can build the future of the city, ” Lajos Barcsa  emphasised.

At the opening, it was announced that a scholarship opportunity for young people will be opened at a company developing self-driving vehicles.
