“IPB students will have the opportunity to experience the specific contexts of our activity in Bragança, which is based on the development of critical systems in the financial area, and it is our goal to prepare them professionally for future integration in the ITSector frameworks in Bragança, ” said Maria Inês Domingues, ITSector HR Director in real press and sent to PortugaliNews.
The protocol concluded between the IPB and ITSector also foresees the exchange of specialists between the parties, through the collaboration of ITSector staff in teaching activities of specific disciplines in that institution of higher education, through the organization of workshops and short seminars duration of regular teaching.
The cooperation between the IPB and the technological one based in Oporto also includes the commitment of both parties to make efforts to identify training areas and to design or adapt curriculum plans accordingly.
