Closing CET’s 1st edition in Materials, Metallurgy and Metalworking

The closing of the first edition of the CET in Materials, Metallurgy and Metalworking was highlighted on 28 July.

After completing the general scientific and technological component, which took place at CINFU, Porto and CITNM facilities in Águeda, between September 2016 and April 2017, the course continued with the practice in a working environment between April and July 2017.

At the end of the course, training reports were presented, in the presence of representatives of CINFU, CITNM and the various companies that welcomed the students in their integrated internships. The companies that supported this edition of the course were Ciclo Fapril, Duramoldes, DuritCast, EDP, Funfrap-Teksid, Renault Cacia, Sakthi Portugal, Sakthi Portugal SP21 and SLM.

The CET’s first edition was successfully concluded and was enthusiastically received by the industry, which is preparing to incorporate these new professionals into several companies in the field.

The idea of developing this technical expert training program, carried out by CINFU with the support of the CITNM, has been praised by companies that often find it difficult to find qualified professionals to carry out high-level technical roles.

Following the success of the first edition, CINFU and CITNM are now looking for companies that want to join the 2nd edition of the course, hosting new students for internship. The new edition starts in the end of September this year, in the same format as the previous edition.
