UTM strengthens its collaboration with vocational-technical institutions, the aim being the vocational guidance of college graduates and stimulating the development of young people’s performance in the engineering field.
In this context, the interest of the Polytechnic College, but also of the College of Light Industry, both from Bălţi, to develop partnerships with higher education institutions was perfectly suited to UTM’s intention to attract as many young people as possible to vocational guidance, including from the so-called northern capital of the country, establishing the specialties necessary for the local economy with the municipal administration.
Thus, UTM, represented by CEGID chief director, Radu MELNIC, and of the deputy chief, Natalia ȘESTENCO, signed with the directors of these institutions, Ion LISNIC and Grigore GAITUR, partnership agreements stipulating the coordination of the study programs in the coinciding specialties, the visit by the students of the colleges of the faculties and centers of excellence of UTM, their participation in master classes with UTM students, as well as in the professional orientation and dissemination of the educational offer of UTM; continuous training activities for the teachers of the colleges within the Center of continuous training of UTM are also provided, as well as many other activities in order to promote engineering education among the youth.
The partnership with the vocational-technical institutions extends to the Rail Technical College in Bălți. The director of the College, Alexandru BELEACOV, gladly accepted the signing of an additional agreement with UTM, after signing, in April, a similar act aimed to contribute through curricular and extracurricular training to the education of graduates. Thus, the two institutions express their intention to further expand the partnership on various areas of mutual interest. Being the only college specialized in the training of specialists in the field of rail transport, it could provide an important flow of candidates for admission with a thorough training in the specialties Rail transport, Auto transport, but also Informatics. The College aims to actively collaborate internationally with specialized higher education institutions, as well as university students in the field (from Ukraine, Belarus, Georgia, Lithuania, Slovakia, Poland, Romania) – an efficient exchange of information and experience.
