Saguaro’s Senior Projects program with Politehnica University of Timisoara was featured on Romanian news!

Saguaro’s Senior Projects Program, currently in its second year with Politehnica University of Timisoara, was featured in an article on DIGI24 and received coverage in a nationally televised news segment.
We have provided a translated version of the article and a subtitled video below

“In Timisoara, the competition in the IT field makes companies use a variety of ways to attract and train new employees. For instance, a company [Saguaro] offers ten $1000 scholarships to students who are pursuing a degree in the company’s sectors of interest. After graduation, the students get a chance to become the company’s employees.

Silviu is 22 and a senior studying Automation and Computers at Politehnica University of Timi?oara. He is among the students who joined the competition for scholarships organized by the IT company [Saguaro]. He will be financially and technically supported as he completes his diploma project.

I think it is a great opportunity to develop your diploma project with a company because you’re getting greater support, says Silviu.

It doesn’t help anyone in the long term if a student drops out of university to get a well-paid job. This co-operation is the proper solution and should be implemented by more companies, says Tiberiu Hidi, General Manager of the IT company.

This type of project is set up for the second year in a row. Last year, two students were employed after they graduated.
We keep on extending our projects. We’ve had a good experience and consider that the students can do more complicated tasks, says Deian Cosas, a student’s mentor.

Students who are the beneficiaries of these scholarships and the multinational company’s infrastructure and technical resources can’t downplay school. If they don’t pass their exams at the university, the scholarship will be suspended. So far, 20 students have submitted their CVs to apply for a scholarship. Of these, only ten will be selected.”
