The Maritime University of Szczecin has obtained almost 2 million zlotys for work placements for first-cycle students as a part of the project TIME FOR WORK PLACEMENT II. The project will be carried out in the period from January 2018 to September 2019. Already in spring 2018, students from 5 fields of study at the Faculty of Economics and Engineering of Transport and the Faculty of Navigation who are now in the last semester of their first-cycle studies will be able to obtain this support. 

The project is intended for 146 students of first-cycle studies of the Faculty of Economics and Engineering of Transport and the Faculty of Navigation studying in the following fields: Transport, Management and Production Engineering, Logistics as well as Geodesy and Cartography. The aim is to improve professional competences of the students participating in the project and, as a consequence, to boost their chances of getting a job in line with their education profile. 

Work placements will last 4 months, i.e. 480h with a weekly minimum of 20h
