Schneider Electric, a leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, said that it has signed a cooperation agreement with the Faculty of Technical Sciences in Novi Sad, and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering in Belgrade, both in Serbia, to provide support during studies for the most talented students.

By investing in education, Schneider Electric aims to contribute to the development of the IT profession in Serbia and the transformation of Serbia’s industry in the digital era, stated the company.

Schneider Electric’s scholarships will provide a significant contribution to gaining practical knowledge, as well as financial assistance during studies, said senior officials at the signing ceremony held during an official visit of French President Emmanuel Macron to Serbia.

Work on various projects and potential recruitment by Schneider Electric DMS NS (SEDMS NS), a unique research and development company for smart grid solutions, after graduation are additional advantages of the scholarship programme.

At all educational levels, students have the support of experts, and an opportunity to participate in workshops and internal company training, they added.

Owing to the scholarship programmes, Schneider Electric is the largest provider of university scholarships in the country and is thus an active participant in establishing an innovative and modern Serbia, it stated

“Our company is recognised worldwide for its commitments and programmes for education and training, as well as for improving great places to work. This is the foundation of the initiative for scholarships for the best students of technical sciences in Serbia,” he added.

SEDMS NS is a centre of excellence that develops ADMS thanks to more than 800 engineers, recruited mainly from the Faculty of Technical Sciences in Novi Sad.

The Faculty Dean, Rade Doroslovacki, said that successful cooperation between the faculty and Schneider Electric lasted for years already, resulting in Novi Sad international recognition in the IT sector.

Faculty of Technical Sciences is the largest educational institution of its kind in the region with 13 different departments, whose students are currently working on almost 100 international projects.

Dean of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering in Belgrade, Milo Tomaševic, said: "We all should be proud of our young experts, whose work influenced the global development of the IT sector."
