TELE-FONIKA plant in Bydgoszcz will join the teaching staff of a new study program Power Engineering at the University of Science and Technology in Bydgoszcz.
Starting from October 2021 a new 1st-degree 3,5-year study program Power Engineering will be available at the Faculty of Telecommunications, Computer Science, and Electrical Engineering of the University of Science and Technology in Bydgoszcz. The curriculum of the subject is based on a hybrid system of full-time study, i.e. some practical and theoretical classes will be conducted at the university, whilst additional practical series of classes, including 6-month apprenticeship, will be conducted on the training basis of the TFKable Group factory in Bydgoszcz. Assumptions of the curriculum of the Power Engineering program, specialization Electrical Engineering, are aimed at preparing graduates to be able to work in the cable and power industry both in Poland and abroad.
“We were very happy to find out that while planning new teaching programs, the university had been conducting extensive consultations with the industry, including representatives of power and electrical engineering industry” – comments Piotr Mirek, Director of Bydgoszcz Production Plant, Member of the Management Board at TELE-FONIKA Kable SA, and adds: “As a result, at the end of the previous year, we decided to offer our services as advisors in preparation of the program for first-degree engineering studies. Soon after that, we proposed the organization of practical exercises blocs at our production plant in Bydgoszcz. We believe that only when the theoretical knowledge is supported by the possibility of practical participation in each production, technological or auxiliary processes (e.g. quality control, transport, storage) regarding cable industry, will the students obtain additional skills, thanks to which with further development in this direction they will have the chance to develop competencies currently sought by employees from these branches of industry. What is more, for a long time now, also thanks to the involvement of our British company JDR Cable Systems in STEAM educational programs Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) – we could observe that students who decide to have an apprenticeship in our company and then decide to work for us, have a major share in our successive development. Today, in the face of dynamic changes in global production markets, it is especially traditional branches of industry that need new, multi-disciplinary skills and competencies, i.e. knowledge obtained not only in a classroom but also through practice. This, in turn, can be obtained at companies operating in a competitive business environment.”
