The support of Cementarnica USJE for the higher education Macedonia continues. Within this commitment, USJE donated equipment, which is partly new and partly used, for the needs of the practical classes of students from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies in Skopje. The company donated technical equipment with a purchase value of about 900,000 MKD, with built-in software that can be changed in accordance with the needs of the curriculum. The equipment will contribute to the further improvement of the conditions for studying at FEIT, and the students can acquire new knowledge and experiences.
“USJE continuously works to support projects of public interest, because we believe that socially responsible actions and meeting the diverse social needs is crucial. We think that the education sector is of particular importance, hence the continuous investments in activities and projects that will help us in the long term to create quality and professional staff who will further engage in professional work. The business sector, with its practical experience, must support the education process, because that’s the only way to create staff that will be ready to advance their career in companies, “said Efstatios Politis, technical director of Cementarnica USJE.
The donated equipment is completely digital and is part of the current production program of the world-renowned SIMENS. It is a numerical relay protection of power equipment. The built-in software allows students to gain hands-on experience in how the numerical protection function works, the built-in software options, connectivity options in computer networks, and application areas. The equipment was completely installed in the laboratory and complete wiring was performed, and folders with electrical circuit diagrams were also handed over. The equipment enables the study of systems and the way of operation at medium and low voltage level.
As part of the support of the Faculty, Cementarnica USJE enables the students to visit the company, where they can get acquainted with the practical application of the knowledge they acquire during the education and technological solutions implemented in one of the most modern domestic companies. USJE is continuously cooperating with the scientific and educational institutions, and it helps the educational process by granting scholarships to students of different higher education institutions, with a special emphasis on technical sciences.
