Pursuing EXcellence (PEX)

Participate in career counseling and guidance sessions to facilitate an easier way to find a job and develop your technical skills by applying the learning path in a workplace.

What is PEX

The project "Pursuing EXcellence" (PEX) is a co-financed project from the Human Capital Operational Program and it involves the participation of students from Romanian universities in compulsory and additional internships, carried out following the university curriculum. We will implement this project for two years ending in September 2022.

PEX in numbers

240 students started their internship with us and 80 out of the 240 are already engaged in an additional, secondary internship to deepen their knowledge and understanding of their area of study. 225 students are currently enrolled in Undergraduate study programs, and 15 are already studying for their Master’s degrees. 

The project's objective is to increase students' participation rate in the internship programs while implementing a partnership between universities and employers in Romania to facilitate the insertion of participants in the labor market after graduating from different academic programs (ISCED 6 and 7).

You can join this project if:

  • You are pursuing undergraduate, master, or postgraduate studies;
  • You study at some universities in Romania, except for Bucharest and Ilfov;
  • You are domiciled in Romania, except for Bucharest and Ilfov;
  • You do not have the quality of participant in other POCU projects with European funds for internships;
  • You speak English.

Project results, tutors' and students' feedback about PEX

We believe that education can flourish when provided with the right conditions. That's why we get involved in students' education, to provide the environment in which they can develop the practical skills needed for the dynamic times we live in.

IT is a constantly changing industry and through internships in Pursuing EXcellence, we are giving young people the opportunity to keep up with the latest trends in technology and deepen their know-how in the most popular programming languages.
