THE CITY OF PIŁA

THE SUBREGIONAL

IT CENTER

The city of Piła is a natural leader in the northern part of Greater Poland. It has managed

to secure for itself a solid position in the environment of regional economic entities, which

facilitate the dynamic growth of the local IT sector and create the perfect conditions for its

future development.

COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY AT ALL STAGES

OF EDUCATION

In the contemporary world it has become almost

impossible to function efficiently without at least

an elementary command of computer technology.

We are surrounded by inteligent machines both in

our professional and private lives. As predicted by

IT specialists, the further growth and development

of computer technology is inevitable. The field

of information technology is continuously

expanding, in turn creating an ever-increasing

demand for a qualified labour force in this field. The

city of Piła endeavors to meet this growing demand.

The process of educating future employees in

the IT sector ensues at the stage of elementary

school, where the core curriculum regarding IT

is implemented. Currently, in elementary schools

every student is educated in the field of computed

technology. Further development at a more advanced

level is possible at the local Middle Schools, which

offer special classes devoted to IT.

In the city there are altogether 35 middle schools,

which besides the obligatory IT classes also offer

courses dedicated to educating future IT specialists

and computer graphic designers. What is more,

during this year, the educational center “NAUKA”

has introduced a new educational profile dedicated

to information technology: the IT technician

(military profile speciality: unmanned aerial

vehicles).

The expertise in the area of inteligent technologies

can be further developed at the Stanisław Staszic

University of Applied Sciences in Piła, which

offers a course on Information technology in business

and administration. The courses can be attended

by students as either full-time or extramural

programms. They include didactic tutorials, six

weeks of professional apprenticeship, and two weeks

of diploma apprenticeship. Graduates are expected

to be capable of utilizing contemporary structured

and object-oriented programming languages with

the purpose of developing new software (including

internet apps and databases). Moreover, they

are skilled in the area of designing, configuring

and managing local area networks (LAN), wide

area networks (WAN) and database management

sytems (DBMS).
