The high school graduates of recent years are much more well-trained than those from a decade ago. Moreover, most young people today know exactly what profession they want to embrace and what faculty to follow. We are pleased that the high school graduates’ preferences are focused on engineering specialties.
Asked by Radio Sputnik Moldova, Dinu Ţurcanu, vice-rector of Informatization, Partnerships, Institutional Image and Communication, UTM, said: “I am glad that students choose UTM specialties not because of what people talk or from the advice of friends, but from the fact that they know what they want, they know the quality of the studies, the results that UTM has. Students today are much more informed! “
The vice-rector of the Technical University of Moldova, Dinu Ţurcanu, says that the trend of the previous years is maintained this year as well, the field of information technologies being the leading position in the top raking of the specialties.
“During the first two days of admission we were loaded with an impressive number of requests. We are glad that young people are aware of the importance of engineering, especially information technologies. We maintain the trend of the past years. Another very demanding field is Architecture. At UTM, we have some specialties the admission of which is based on additional exams. For example, in the case of the Software Engineering specialty, which is taught in English, candidates have to take exams in Math and English. Already for the third consecutive year, this specialty is at the top of UTM. Candidates are not afraid of exams, they choose this specialty with confidence” adds Dinu Țurcanu.
In fact, engineering is a fascinating field with great perspective, so extensive and complex, that not everyone can or dares to choose. UTM is also keeping itself at the top when it comes to this, as it is among the top 25 universities in the U-Multirank Top in the “International Joint Publication” category – a ranking with 1,700 universities in Europe, Asia, America and Africa. This indicator characterizes the extent to which university professors are connected to international research networks. The top universities have at least 75% of publications produced in collaboration with researchers from outside the country.
