TECNUN WINTER PROGRAM 2018 (February 5th – 9th, 2018)
The Tecnun Winter program has been designed as a specific module for engineering students from Tecnun International university partners. It is intentionally offered right after a 2-week module of Spanish Language and Culture is given at the University of Navarra main campus (Pamplona, Navarra) by the University of Navarra Spanish Language and Culture Institute (ILCE) so to provide a continuation to that module building a 4-week program with Spanish Language and Culture followed by the "Innovation and Entrepreneurship" module.
The program offers 3 different visits to companies that cooperate closely with Tecnun in different aspects like associated education, internships and recruiting or research. They have been selected for their interest for engineering students that visiting them will be able to learn about the company profile, their market, products and technology, and their manufacturing facilities where the students will see the manufacturing and testing processes in a guided tour.
The purpose of the visits is to enrich the students with a real contact with companies that represent the potential future for them as Engineers once they leave the university and start their professional career. The students will be required to do research about the company before the visit to learn about them beforehand. During the visits they will be given a talk (in English) by company representatives and they will later visit the facilities. After the visit is concluded the students will write a report to describe what they have learn from the visit. The reports will be assessed and graded by Tecnun for the final grading of the program in the transcript of records.
