Welcome to the Business C(o)alifornia!

General description

Have you ever noticed that renewable resources have become incredibly popular? Everyone’s making song and dance about being green, recycling, installing solar panels and getting really deep into the topic of eco-friendly technologies - which is an absolutely creditable thing to do! Green energy is definitely the power of the future. But don’t you think that we slowly forget about good old coal and crude oil? We owe them too much for this to happen and it’s still a developable scientific field!

In Poland coal is still “in vogue”, even though in Kraków coal furnances have been banned lately. Our country is also the main coal manufacturer in the whole EU. We strongly believe it’s still a long way to go before we leave fossil fuels in favour of renewable resources.

Join us this September to learn more about power engineering, upgrade your soft skills and gain multicultural experience! Make this autumn the BEST adventure of your lifetime and come back home full of energy & new abilities. Don’t hesitate - follow our motto:

Black is back!

Kraków is waiting for you!
