The final Graduation Ceremony for the 3rd batch of Connect IT student-teams

On 11 March, EU for Innovation hosted the final Graduation Ceremony for the 3rd batch of student-teams, part of Connect IT programme, at the premises of Polis University.

11 teams, made of ca. 40 students, presented their digital solutions ranging from website building and optimization, to creating digital applications, web-shops, order-systems and much more, for various local businesses, such as travel agencies, restaurants, coffee shops, security and real-estate companies, health and beauty clinics etc.

And here are the facts: In total over 130 students, coming from the Faculty of Economy, University of Tirana, Polis University, Epoka University and Canadian Institute of Technology, have delivered 29 digital and/or tech solutions for over 20 Albanian companies, through Connect IT programme, totally for free!

Connect IT’s aim was to connect Albanian university students and industry to digitize their business processes, while collaborating with universities to include more practical assignments within educational programmes, to enhance their student’s experience and prepare them to the best of their abilities to life after university and the current market needs.

Congratulations to all participants on doing so great and making Connect IT happen!
