The International Education Fair PRO EDUCO, which took place for the twelfth time on 5 - 6 December 2018, belong to major events of its kind in Slovakia. It is, however, unique in its concept, where in one place the programmes for high school, undergraduate, postgraduate and out-of-school education are presented.
This year, the Technical University of Košice was the general partner of the event and within its exposition several exhibits and demonstrations of practical examples of creative work of students were presented to the applicants. A pleasant surprise was the TUKE Popcorn, which filled the fairground with a nice smell.
A part of the opening ceremony was the award ceremony PRO EDUCO AWARDS 2018. Awards were given to students in several age categories from elementary school pupils to doctoral students. The award for TUKE was received by the team of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering with the project Eco Shell Marathon and economical drives led by doc. Ing. Ján Kráľ, PhD.
Another of the attractions was the NAO robot which presented to visitors what they can experience if they decide to study at one of the nine TUKE faculties.
