Strategic partnership between Adobe Romania and the Faculty of Automation and Computers, UPB Bucharest
At the beginning of the year, Adobe Romania concluded a partnership with the Faculty of Automation and Computers at the Polytechnic University of Bucharest. This partnership establishes the general framework for cooperation to improve relations with students, increase their competitiveness in the labor market, and the quality of education, research, and more sustainable socio-economic development in an increasingly competitive industry.
”In this partnership, we contribute to the training of graduates in an increasingly competitive industry, one that is constantly transforming. Together with the Polytechnic University of Bucharest, we laid the foundations for a strategy to prepare students for their chosen career” Cris Radu also stated.
Through this agreement, which validates the long-term relationship between the two organizations, the partners have identified several directions for development. On the one side, Adobe Romania continues and expands its involvement in updating the study and extra-curricular programs organized by the faculty – in internship and mentoring activities – and on the other hand, the faculty promotes on its platforms the internship positions opened by Adobe.
