How to move on to working life after studies? What kind of opportunities do companies offer? What skills should I improve? Among other things, these matters are discussed in the mentoring program that supports students in developing their skill set and preparedness for working life. The next mentoring program starts in November 2021.
The application time was during October and is now closed.

STHEC – Smart Technology Hub Ecosystem Challenge 2021

STHEC picture from 13.11.2019, photographed at Wasa Innovation Center.

STHEC – the Smart Technology Hub Ecosystem Challenge – is a 2-day innovation challenge where students on bachelor and masters level get to team up and solve real challenges together in smaller teams. The idea is to connect students, companies and professionals together and offer a showcase of how it is to work in an ecosystem of different players and co-create new solutions together. It furthermore offers great possibilities for networking and for students and companies to get to know each other and show one’s potential.
STHEC was first organized in 2019 by Wärtsilä in collaboration with its partners. You can read more about 2019 year’s STHEC here https://www.smarttechnologyhub.com/smart-technology-hub-ecosystem-challenge-showcased-the-outstanding-potential-of-students/.

This year the event is organized virtually under the umbrella of the Energy Academy. Read more about STHEC and sign up for the challenge on https://www.smarttechnologyhub.com/campus/sthec/

 

 

The goals of the Energy Academy include:

  • Supporting students by being approachable and present in their studies
  • Bringing students and companies closer to each other, from an early stage to support recruiting
  • Increasing interdisciplinary cooperation
  • Making connections between education and work life
  • Reaching mutual understanding between schools and companies on the needs and challenges in the industry
  • Achieving local synergies in attracting and retaining talent
