The Silesian University of Technology has gained another partner - Santander Bank Polska S.A. The cooperation agreement within the Santander Universidades project was signed on 26 June in the rectorate of the Silesian University of Technology.

 - We are very open to cooperation with the socio-economic environment. For several years, the university has been conducting dual studies in close cooperation with the socio-economic environment. It is a combination of practical and academic education, students undergo at least three months of internship with their employers, signing a contract with them. The more business partners we have, the more interesting are the areas of education and closer to the realities of the future working environment - said the Rector, Professor Arkadiusz Mężyk.

 - We are glad that such a recognized university as the Silesian University of Technology has joined the Santander Universidades Network. Thanks to the concluded agreement, students, academics and student organizations will be able to benefit from the support we offer. The most important of them are: International Santander Scholarships (e.g. Yale, Georgetown, UCLA), support for student organizations in implementing the best initiatives and projects, as well as gaining professional experience during internships at Santander Bank Polska - said Wojciech Leśniewski, Director of Santander Universidades in Poland.
