The idea was to develop a series of innovative workshops that combine learning and research, and are adapted to the needs of high school and college students regardless of their pre-knowledge level. There will be 8 workshops in total, which will be spread out in between DURA and RIT Croatia premises. The topics that will be covered at the workshops include Arduino for beginners, IOS application development, learning how to program and fly drones, as well as how to create smart irrigation systems.
Prior to the beginning of the first workshop, the Agreement of Cooperation was signed by Andrea Novaković, director of DURA, and Don Hudspeth, President and Dean of RIT Croatia.
Mrs. Novaković expressed her satisfaction with the program and she stated that this cooperation between DURA and RIT Croatia is an example of excellent cooperation between public and private sector for the benefit of local community. She pointed out that the workshops are free of charge and opened to all students who are interested in the stated topics.
Don Hudspeth commented
that this is a continuance of an excellent cooperation with DURA and he
emphasized that this type of education goes in line with the educational trends
that are used in RIT's curriculums. He concluded that RIT Croatia will support
all ideas for expanding cooperation on future projects.
With the start of the new academic year higher education institutions are facing unique challenges that stand to swiftly, thoroughly, and permanently reshape them. When academic year starts with key messages focused around safety of students and faculty, it is clear even to a common observer that students and faculty alike are embarking on a journey like none before.
Quality and excellence have always been embedded in RIT Croatia's DNA. As a global campus of RIT, we are committed to deliver exceptional studying and learning experiences for our students, we well as working experience for our employees.
