Have no fear, become a skilled engineer!

General description

So, are you thinking to do something interesting this summer? If the answer is YES, then Cluj is the city for you. If you are asking: “What have we prepared for you?”, be a little bit patient and let me tell you a story.

Once upon a time in the year of 2015, there was a Youth Capital full of proud students and colorful people. And, to ensure the good being of this multicultural capital, the BEST people were chosen to be the ones who find the way to get this capital to a whole new level.

Day by day, they had thought about this important task that was given to them and, finally, they have found a brilliant idea: that they need to bring some diversity in the game, why not some bright and young people to help them develop awesome ideas and spread the world with joy and fun. But they wanted a challenge so: “Let’s work with engineers!” they said, “to make this even better”.

And then a question was raised: “What does a good engineer need the most in order to become the BEST engineer?” All the candidates were smart and resourceful, but they were missing something...

A set of skills, maybe? But which exactly? They were all prepared in the engineering field but what other career related skills were there to help them out?

The answer will be discovered here, this summer, in Cluj-Napoca.

So, if you are curious about what untold secrets are mysteriously hidden here in Cluj, we hope that you already feel the urge to apply to be part of this awesome quest in order to become the BEST skilled engineer.

Apply, we are waiting for you!
