Within the Energy for education program our Company grants scholarships to students studying the bachelor and master’s degrees at Slovak technical universities. The main objective is to support the growth of a new generation of engineers and technicians for the Slovak energy.
In 2016, for the period 2016/2017, Slovenské elektrárne awarded to students 15 scholarships while receiving 106 scholarship applications. The largest representation has Slovak Technical University (40%) and University of Žilina (40%). The lowest representation had Technical University of Košice (20%).
The support of students studying at technical universities depends on strategic cooperation with experts and professors from technical universities from Slovakia, who are together with experts and managers from Slovenské elektrárne members of the Committee for Cooperation with Universities. The Committee aims to identify and implement possibilities for support and attractiveness of study at technical universities, as well as further development of education of current employees of our Company in the form of postgraduate study.
