Our students do professional practices in companies from the economy with which we have a long-term cooperation. As a result, each year a certain number of students stay to work in the companies where they did their professional practice. Good cooperation with the economy is also reflected in the continuous implementation of part-time study to which companies send their employees for additional education.
Students who complete the undergraduate professional study of Manufacturing Engineering, and especially the specialist graduate professional study of Energy, very quickly find a job in the profession because they can be employed in various jobs in manufacturing companies in the metalworking industry and beyond.
The recognizability of our study programs is evidenced by the fact that a large number of students come from other counties and different types of schools (Technical Schools, Gymnasiums, Schools of Economics, ().
Study programs are regularly updated according to the needs of the economy, and we have, for example, provided students with elective courses in the field of robotics.
In addition to full-time study at the Technical Department, lifelong learning programs are also conducted. For example, training for professional training and compulsory training of persons conducting energy audits and/or energy certification of buildings has been provided since 2009, when the Polytechnic of Slavonski Brod was the first institution in Croatia to receive accreditation from the Ministry of Environmental Protection, Physical Planning and Construction. implementation of the said program.
Students of the Technical Department can apply for ERASMUS + competitions within the University of Slavonski Brod and thus gain experience at higher education institutions abroad. In addition, there is inbound mobility of students to the Technical Department from other countries which also allows for the exchange of experiences.
