ISD is happy to announce the signing of a partnership agreement with the Technical University of Moldova (TUM) within a dual studies program. The event took place on July 28, 2022.
For the first time in Moldova, dual studies are going to be launched for two Bachelor engineering programs. Starting with September 2022, students who will enroll the Faculty of Computers, Informatics and Microelectronics (FCIM) for the programs of “Automatics and Informatics” and “Robotics and Mechatronics” are going to benefit of an academic plan encompassing practical experience gained through real-time jobs.
What are dual studies?
Dual studies give students the opportunity to alternate concurrently activities in the university and companies. At the same, both the university and the engaged companies are responsible for teaching and mentoring the student. Students should spend 120 hours in a company during the 2nd year of study. The 3rd and 4th year are going to be structured in a format of 2 days at the university and 3 days in the company. Moreover, during their academic time, students will sign working contracts with the companies, and will receive salaries for their job performance.
What does the program involve for ISD?
Education is at the core of ISD’s values. When the company decided to partner with TUM for the dual studies program, it engaged in offering the necessary resources in time, mentors, salaries, and gadgets.
We are happy to participate in a project where future generations of IT professionals are educated and to contribute to the development of Moldova’s IT community.
Furthermore, getting involved in the education of young professionals has become an ISD’s long-term tradition. We offer support not only in starting their careers in tech, but also in growing their skills. Our colleagues are mentors within Tekwill Academy, they teach courses at TUM, and are also mentors for all the interns who enroll in our internship programs.
