New computer equipment from OSF improves mobile learning programs at Engineering school
OSF Digital announced today its contribution of valuable computer equipment to Universitatea Stefan Cel Mare Suceava - Facultatea de Inginerie Electrica si Stiinta a Calculatoarelor, solidifying their long-term, ongoing relationship with the school.
OSF Digital began their sponsorship program with the school in 2008 for the University’s annual Hard & Soft international contest, and continues to help them with various initiatives. In 2017, OSF has delivered hardware to help them with the students’ mobile learning programs.
“90% of our employees at our Suceava office studied at the Suceava Engineering facility, so it’s just common sense to be very close to them,” says Alex Guriuc, Mobile Division Director at OSF. “It’s a win-win situation.”
OSF has an office in Suceava, where the school has a highly acclaimed Engineering facility. The two organizations see eye to eye in terms of recruitment, where OSF team members are often invited to speak at events and participate at license exams so that they have a clear view of the top performing students.
“OSF Digital has helped twofold the students of Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science,”
says St.Gh. Pentiuc, Dean at the University. “In the first place, through meetings and discussions, that have made them aware of the requirements of the private marketplace; secondly, the equipment donated by OSF Digital will help students preparing for Mobile Application Programming course and laboratory activities and training in technologies that are in great demand today.”
OSF also organizes their OSF Open Days event once or twice per year at the University, to meet with students and present the company’s achievements, programs and offers. OSF and the University also organize an annual Hackathon event, which drew 50 contestants in 2016. The 2017 event is expected to produce even better results.
“In addition to a good academic education, one of the best things we can do is to encourage our students to participate in professional competitions,” says Pentiuc. “The Hackathon was for the students a big opportunity to apply, to be together, to evolve.”
