Warsaw students excel at the debate organized by DRUTEX
Again we hosted students who took part in the ‘Window to Construction’ conference. This year they were the representatives of Universities of Technology from Warsaw, Gdansk, Silesia and Koszalin, as well as the West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin.
It was the third edition of the event dedicated to students of construction. On Friday 19 May, 11 student teams, each consisting of four members, delivered their presentations supported by their own scientific research. Four best teams qualified to the final Oxford debates that took place on Saturday, 20 May.
The victory was gained by the students of the Warsaw University of Technology who beat the West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin in the final. The third place was taken by the Silesia University of Technology, and the third one – the second team from the university.
The winners left Bytów with a grand cup and attractive awards. All the participants – just like in previous editions – had an opportunity to learn about DRUTEX and to visit the city.
- Our conference is an inherent part of the calendar of most important events in Poland for students of construction. For ages we have been involved in setting trends in modern construction, and students are the future of the industry. In a few years they will determine the direction of development - said Paweł Grzonka, marketing director in DRUTEX S.A.
DRUTEX’ cooperation with institutes of higher education has been conducted on many levels, from internships and work placements, to scientific conferences as well as execution of mutual, cutting-edge projects. Apart from construction and architecture, the cooperation also involves faculties in the area of IT, mechanics, automation and robotics, as well as logistics and shipping.
