The Business Forum, organized by the Faculty of Physics and the Faculty of Chemistry, with the participation of three more faculties, Mathematics and Computer Science, Earth Sciences and Biology, is a very good opportunity for students to get in contact with companies whose activity is related to their studies. This contact may drive into a scholarship, an agreement for work practices or, even, an employment contract. An important aspect for the student is also training in skills relating to the establishment of the contact with the company, to be able to design and to present a good curriculum, to learn to do a good job interview, etc..
In last year's forum, 105 industries, research centers and universities participated in the event, which counted with the visit of more than 600 unversity students from sixteen degrees and twenty-two masters in these scientific areas.
The Business Forum is also a chance for the scientists of the research groups to establish relationships between research and technology. It is also helpful to try to save the wall University/ Industry and promote the technology transfer, so important for the future.
The Forum is for students of the degrees coursed at the mentioned faculties and for master students related to these topics:
- Biology, Biochemistry, Biomedical Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, Biotechnology,
- Chemical Engineering, Chemistry
- Computer Engineering, Electronics Telecommunication Engineering
- Environmental Sciences, Geological Engineering, Geology, Sea Sciences
- Materials Science & Engineering
