2nd Stage of the 1st Edition from CITNM Summer School

The 2nd stage of the 1st edition from CITNM Summer School took place from 4 to 12 September, a summer course whose main objective was to raise 10th and 11th grades students' awareness into engineering areas. This initiative was very well perceived by the secondary schools’ students from Águeda-Sul group and Adolfo Portela, with the participation of 25 students.

The developed program for the course provided numerous experiences for the students, between visits and presentations. This edition featured presentations on the following topics:

  • Material Production and Application;
  • Being an Engineer - professional testimonials;
  • Professions for the Future;
  • The Future of the Automobile.

Visits to FEUP (Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto), the University of Aveiro, CINFU (Professional Casting Industry Training Center), SLM (Schmidt Light Metal) and Sakthi Portugal SP21 were performed.

The closing of the course was marked with a picnic in the Alta Vila Park, in Águeda, followed by activities, with games and fun.

Just as the first stage, the course’s feedback was very positive, students showed their receptivity to the planned activities by participating in an active and constructive way.

CITNM Summer School will be back next year!
