After 21 years of operation, we have developed modern curricula, which are constantly revised so as to adapt to current conditions. Our laboratories, with state-of-the-art equipment, offer access to advanced knowledge and skills. We have created a series of actions connecting substantially the academic world with the job market and the society needs.
Our international strategy aims at providing students with international competencies through their degree programs, supporting and incorporating best practices, developing and implementing an international dimension in all degree level curricula, providing quality and international skills in all curricula for all students, improving staff members’ international qualifications, generating of leadership and participating in international projects in cooperation with key partners.
We have developed a broad network of partnerships with foreign Universities, where our students can attend courses as part of their studies. The number of our students who spend one or two semesters in a European higher institution or a training period through the Erasmus program has practically doubled from 2010 to 2015 and this trend is likely to continue. At the same time, a great number of foreign students select our Institution as their educational destination.
With steady progress, TEIEP confirms its profile as an innovative and pioneering regional Institution of applied research and innovation, with a European orientation.
