01 Jun UniCloud Asseco Data Systems for the students of the University of Applied Sciences in Gorzów Wielkopolski
The companies of Asseco Data Systems S.A. (ADS) and The Jacob of Paradyż University of Applied Sciences in Gorzów Wielkopolski (Państwowa Wyższa Szkoła Zawodowa im.Jakuba z Paradyża w Gorzowie Wielkopolskim) began cooperation in the scope of students using the tool UniCloud and, in the future, to support the university systems.
On 31 May, an agreement was signed between The Jacob of Paradyż University of Applied Sciences in Gorzów Wielkopolski and Asseco Data Systems S.A., under which ADS provides the University with a freely available platform for UniCloud developers. The University was represented by Professor Elżbieta Skorupska-Raczyńska – Rector of the University, and ADS was represented by Mr. Robert Kobylański, Vice President of the Board responsible for the following divisions: Data Center, Mass Communications and Software Development.
“UniCloud is a platform that is widely used not only as a tool to work for programmers, it is also more and more often used as a tool for learning. The possibilities of UniCloud in the field of education are very wide. Students who use it during classes gain practical knowledge that they can then use in future professional work,” said Marcin Lebiecki, Director of Sales and Implementation of the ADS Data Center Division.
“Our university strives for cooperation between science and business, because I believe that this is the foundation for building a knowledge-based economy. We are pleased that through the collaboration undertaken, our University receives tools to educate future employees of companies such as ADS, at the same time it meets the expectations of the companies in terms of qualifications and competences which future employees should be equipped with. We believe that such actions in the future will help reduce the gap between what the market expects from future workers and what graduates are “delivered” by Polish universities.” said Aleksandra Radom-Zalas, PhD. Eng., Dean of the Faculty of Technology, about the cooperation undertaken.
The UniCloud tool is made available this semester as a pilot for one group of students led by Mr. Marek Kannchen, who teaches classes in the field of information technologies and web applications on a daily basis. In the academic year 2016/2017 UniCloud will be used by a larger group of lecturers of the Faculty of Technology.
