The Students’ League from the Faculty of Electronics and Telecommunications (LSFETc), together with the Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications Engineering and Information Technologies at  Politehnica University Timişoara, organizes the third edition of Electronics Summer University from 20 August to 2 September 2018 , a summer school addressed to students of the 11th grade, attended by 70 students from 27 high schools in Romania from the following counties: Alba, Arad, Bihor, Caraş-Severin, Gorj, Hunedoara, Satu Mare, Timiş and Valcea.

The 70 high-school students will have the opportunity to experience for 2 weeks the life of a student at the Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications Engineering and Information Technologies in Timişoara. Over the course of the project, pupils acquire new knowledge, which will prove to be very useful in the future. They also deepen the knowledge gained in high school and consolidate them, giving them a clearer direction.

The 70 high school students attending the Electronics Summer University will be housed in the UPT dorms, with accommodation, meals and transportation provided. During the two weeks, high school students will participate in non-formal courses with an important applicative component, will make visits to Experimentarium TM, companies from Timisoara, the UPT Career Counseling Center, will carry out sports activities, will take part in personal development trainings, treasure hunting throughout Timisoara, but also at various social evenings.

The majority of participants come from disadvantaged areas, from rural high schools or low baccalaureate graduation rate high schools. Out of the participants last year, more than 50% became students of Politehnica University Timisoara, and the volunteers of the current edition are participants from the previous editions. Last but not least, the project coordinator this year is a former participant in the first edition, currently a student of UPT.
