It is a training program that allows students to acquire skills beyond the strictly technical. It offers training through activities designed to provide a first-class university experience.
The activities focus on 3 areas:
The area of INNOVATION AND RESEARCH involves participating in the student intern programme in a department of Tecnun or division of CEIT. Student interns have the opportunity to experience first-hand the experience of collaborating on a research project. The student internship can be carried out in the first semester, in the second semester or after the exams.
The area of SOCIAL COMMITMENT AND SOLIDARITY consists of participating in one of the following volunteering activities. The possibility of volunteering is open in both the first and second term as long as the established minimum number of hours is met:
ASPACE (Cerebral Palsy Association)
HAZI ETA IKASI (School Support)
ACCOMPANIMENT IN LONELINESS (To accompany the elderly)
LET'S SMILE (Hospital and care home performances)
IMPROVING WORLD (Design for Needs)
CARITAS/RED CROSS PROJECTS
KOOPROMISE (Engineering applied to cooperation)
SUPPORT CLASSES (Classes to help first year students with difficulties)
The PROFESSIONAL EXCELLENCE area consists of participating in the cycle of talks and colloquiums exclusively for the Fostering Talent programme. The speakers are invited from the business world, academia or public administration and the topics are very varied: professional skills, emerging sectors, economics and geopolitics, etc. They are not time-consuming and are very interesting. Going on Erasmus is not a problem either because the sessions are spread over both semesters. There are usually 4 sessions per year (2 per term).
A three-day trip to Madrid to visit companies is also organised in January (during the extraordinary exams). The trip from 15 to 17 January 2020 included visits to the Deloitte Robotics Centre of Excellence, the Deloitte Cybersecurity Centre, the Cotec Foundation, the Amazon Logistics Centre, the Postgraduate Headquarters of the University of Navarra in Madrid and the Simulation Centre of Grupo Antolin in Burgos. Attendance at the trip is not compulsory in order to obtain the Fostering Talent programme diploma. This year, 2021, a trip to Madrid will be organised if circumstances permit (especially the limitation of company visits due to the pandemic).
