The Rector of the Technical University of Moldova, prof., Dr. Viorel BOSTAN, and the Managing Director at CRUNCHYROLL, Elena IVANOVA, signed a long-term collaboration agreement with UTM, particularly with the Faculty of Computers, Informatics and Microelectronics.
– In addition to the essential support provided to FCIM through internships, mentoring / guests from the company and the organization of student events, the Collaboration Agreement involves providing technical and financial support for the reconceptualization of 150 sq.m. of spaces intended for laboratory work, in which first year students take their first steps in their training process. We’re talking about donations of modern and ergonomic furniture, but also about technical and design solutions, through which the study spaces within FCIM will become more agreeable and modernized, thanks to the beautiful collaboration with Crunchyroll, mentioned the dean of FCIM, Dr. Dumitru CIORBĂ.
In fact, UTM’s collaboration with this prestigious company is not something new. The dynamic company Ellation, formerly known as a separate division within WarnerMedia that included Crunchyroll, VRV and animation brand Rooster Teeth, which was responsible for product development and engineering for Crunchyroll and VRV, recently merged with Crunchyroll – the most popular anime brand in the world.
– A year ago, formerly known as just Ellation, the best employer of 2019, initiated the discussions regarding the four halls within the FCIM Faculty. Dedicated to first-year students, the computer rooms in the basement of FCIM have been completely renovated as part of the agreements with Ellation, the new study conditions integrating a modern ventilation system, corresponding to the expectations for spaces dedicated to the study of programming, computer graphic design and modeling of mechanical movements, suitable for future IT specialists that are at the beginning of their training process, pointed out Dinu ȚURCANU, vice-rector for Informatization, Partnerships, Institutional Image and Communication.
Over the years, we have had the honor to have Ellation among the participants and supporters of various large-scale events organized by UTM, such as Programmers’ Day, Industrial Suppliers & Engineering Forum, ICT Career Orientation, ICT Job Shop, “MOLDOVA ICT” summit, IT Day at UTM, etc. Now that Ellation has become Crunchyroll, we hope to further strengthen the company’s involvement in the partnership with UTM.
