This summer is canicular - Go Extracurricular!

General description

Did you know that there is an amazing opportunity waiting for you in Cluj? This summer you'll be able to discuss university curriculum and see how you can contribute to its development. Many of us often express dissatisfaction about the way we study but not so many know how to change this situation and even less know whom to approach to make a difference. Luckily for you, we are providing you with the opportunity of making your voice heard on European level and not only learn about latest developments in Engineering Education, but also contribute to their further development.

During 'This Summer is canicular - Go Extracurricular' Event on Education you'll have a chance to meet professors and experts dealing with Innovative Educational Methods in Engineering Education. Through lectures and sharing sessions you will get the insight on the most progressive approaches in this field. We shall tackle the importance of students' self-development and their ability to obtain useful experiences in extracurricular activities.

To complement the knowledge the students are acquiring through their education curricula you will get an insight on the importance of soft skills towards future employment.

Through a series of discussion sessions, you will be able to state your opinion, share your experience and introduce new ideas regarding innovative teaching methods, enhancement of personal skills and the development of education system. We want to raise awareness and involve students in the process of shaping education because we believe that's the key to address the issues that concern the European Engineering Education.

While working to improve education in Europe you will be able to actively participate and learn more about the Romanian Culture and will have the opportunity to experience Romanian habits like mowing with a scythe or riding a traditional carriage.

So what are you waiting for?

Join us in Cluj-Napoca, the 2015 European Youth Capital, and the BEST student city in Romania!
