As one of our branches is based in Žilina and it is also a region that houses a university, at the end of last year we decided to contact the Faculty and Management Science and Informatics at the University of Žilina with the aim of establishing mutual beneficial cooperation. The readiness of the faculty – in marketing terms – surprised us very positively. Besides improving the company’s visibility in the region and the possibility of advertising available jobs directly on the faculty website, we were attracted by the chance to present the ICZ brand at events held by the university for students and companies – PANEL STORY and IT TRHOVISKO.
At the same time, we took advantage of the possibility of participating in project-based education, through which from the upcoming academic year we will be offering students the option of participating in a project we have proposed: Monitoring Human Vital Signs.
This is an IT solution project to improve patient care focusing on experience in the healthcare segment. Its aim is to develop a set of tools for monitoring a person’s/patient’s vital signs for integration into higher systems to be implemented at medical facilities in the future (behavioural tools, intelligent assistants and so on).
We believe that this cooperation with the University of Žilina will bear fruit within a few years and our team will welcome new capable colleagues.
