The partnership agreement
This new partnership will broaden possibilities for work placements for students in chemistry, civil engineering and sustainable construction, electrical engineering and industrial IT, mechanical engineering and production and management of businesses and administrative bodies.
Later, it should provide opportunities for French students to go to Belo Horizonte either in the framework of the 4th semester of the DUT (Diplôme universitaire de technologies) or the DUETI (Diplôme universitaire d'enseignement technologique international). In exchange, the IUT Rennes will welcome Brazilian students of the CEFET-MG for a study semester or for specific projects.
Two meetings were organised during the visit
An initiation in Brazilian Portugese
On Monday afternoon, staff and students were invited to participate in an initiation in Brazilian Portugese run by Natália Moreira Tosatti. This was a friendly exchange between the two cultures, in Portugese, whilst enjoying French tapas!
A presentation of work placement opportunities in Brazil
On Tuesday, Joao Paulo Machado de Souza, lecturer-researcher, presented the CEFET-MG and its departments, and talked about work placement opportunities.
