Meetings of the Employers project discussion groups

The discussion groups were held with employers and professionals from different sectors of economic activity in the months of June and July. A total of ten (10) discussion groups took place all together, in which more sixty (60) employers from different sectors took part.

  • Industry: focusing on degrees in Industrial Engineering and other similar programmes.
  • Communications Technologies: focusing on degrees in Telecommunications Engineering, Computer Sciences and other similar programmes.

  • Early Childhood and Primary Education: focusing on degrees in Early Childhood and Primary Education.
  • Secondary Education: focusing on the Master's programme in Secondary Education Teaching.
  • Medicine: focusing on degrees in Medicine.
