High school students from Stężyca prepare for their studies at Gdańsk Tech
The contract was signed on 19 July at the Stężyca Commune Office. Gdańsk University of Technology was represented by: prof. Krzysztof Wilde – rector, prof. Marek Dzida - vice-rector for education, as well as PhD Barbara Wikieł, director of the Mathematics Teaching and Distance Learning Center, Jolanta Wielgus, director of the Language Center and Krzysztof Kaszuba, director of the Academic Sports Center. The Training and Education Unit was represented by director Piotr Karasiński, and the meeting was hosted by Tomasz Brzoskowski, mayor of the Stężyca commune.
The cooperation agreement concerns activities aimed at increasing the quality of education of students at the secondary school level and preparing them for continuing education at Gdańsk University of Technology. Under the signed agreement, TEU students will have the opportunity to participate in classes, open lectures and consultations prepared by representatives of Gdańsk University of Technology, and will also learn about the offer prepared for future students on an ongoing basis.
The employees of the University of Technology will co-create and give opinions on the educational programs of TEU and share their knowledge and experience with the teaching staff of the school.
Along with the cooperation agreement, three executive agreements were concluded - between the Training and Education Unit in Stężyca and the Mathematics Teaching and Distance Learning Center, the Language Center and the Sports Center.
Under the first two ones, students of the school from Stężyca will participate in lectures, classes and workshops in the field of mathematics as well as English and other foreign languages taught by the Language Center. Moreover, it will be possible for those interested to participate in educational events organized by both Centers.
Thanks to the third executive agreement, players of the teams from the Sports Championship School, which operates within the TEU, will continue to train in TEU teams and prepare to perform at the Polish Academic Championships in female volleyball, beach volleyball and football, when taking up education at Gdańsk University of Technology. This cooperation is also beneficial for both parties when it comes to sports infrastructure - one of the elements of the agreement is the possibility of organizing the Polish Academic Football Championship in Stężyca.
– We want to cooperate in fields such as mathematics, foreign languages and sports. There are plans to organize joint sports events. Perhaps we will manage to organize the Polish Academic Championships together, because the sports infrastructure in Stężyca is so good that we could attract the cream of academic athletes here – said Prof. Krzysztof Wilde, rector of Gdańsk Tech. – We have many common possibilities ahead of us.
– I think that this is the only such model at the moment in Poland - Tomasz Brzoskowski, mayor of the Stężyca commune summarized the signing of the contract. - We had already thought about establishing cooperation with a university in the past, so as soon as we found out about this proposal, we did not hesitate for a moment. We hope that as many of our graduates with their sports skills as possible will get to the University of Technology, to the fields of their dreams and will continue the path where it will be possible to combine science and sport - he adds.
