Cooperation for growth

Tuesday, 15. october
In October, continuing the longstanding successful collaboration, a group of students from Jade University of Applied Sciences (Germany), led by Professor Paul Beckmann and Lecturer Christof Woge, visited Rezekne Academy of Technologies (RTA).

This time, under the guidance of RTA's academic staff, the students not only improved their programming skills at RTA's Mechatronics Laboratory, but also took the opportunity to work at RTA's Laser Technology Center and gained skills for working with laser cutting and marking equipment.

In the presence of representatives of RTA Laser Technology Center, lecturers, students and all those interested, the results of group work were presented on 11 October, when the students explained both theoretical and practical aspects of the work done and revealed the lessons learnt. It should be noted that students also appreciated the contribution of the teaching staff for their advice, encouragement and support.

In his address to the audience, RTA Deputy Rector for Cooperation and Development, Associate Professor, Dr.paed. Gunārs Strods thanked the academic staff of both institutions for their active cooperation for more than 15 years already. German teaching staff and students come to RTA for various purposes, including conferences and practical work. G.Strods wished the students not only to work together in the laboratories, but also to make new friends and share experiences and ideas for future projects. “Your future is up to you! You can even become experts or professors,” he said.

It is significant that group work not only enables students to test and apply their theoretical knowledge in practical tasks, but it is also a great opportunity to improve their foreign language and communication skills.

After the presentations, the students of Jade University of Applied Sciences received certificates for participation in the training at the RTA.
