FENS students completed CNC training

FENS students completed CNC training
On Thursday, May 9, 2019, certificates were awarded to students of the IUS Faculty of Natural and Technical Sciences who completed 50-hour training on CNC machines.
Certificates were awarded by Dr. Muhamed Hadžiabdić, Program Coordinator of the study program Mechanical Engineering who congratulated the students and pointed out the importance of practical training for all professions and especially for future engineers.
We have to emphasize that three female students attended this training, who by their example want to popularize this education among the female population.
Amina Krdzalic told us: "I find it extremely important that each person tends to progress in what he enjoys and is an affinity for. We live in a society where certain professions are attributed only to men or to women with no particular reason. That is the case with technical lessons and the use of CNC machines that girls and women can use to show their creativity and discover new opportunities. Everyone has a certain amount of knowledge and skills that can contribute to specific fields if they devote themselves to this and give their maximum. That's why I enrolled in the CNC course where I found a huge potential to convert creative sketches into tangible objects, primarily jewelry making, but also many other items. I believe that the acquired knowledge in this course will help me in my future call as an industrial engineer, because today a large number of companies from the two most developed industries in BiH, the wood and metal industry, just use CNC machines in regular production. During the application for the position we will all more or less have diplomas with similar finished subjects, but what sets us apart from others is how much time we allocated to our faculty and regular obligations for additional education, courses and similar training that will strengthen our knowledge in certain fields and give us an opportunity to acquire practical knowledge from the same, which, unfortunately, is largely ignored in formal education. Therefore, I recommend that students from the earliest days of the college invest in their knowledge in order to be more competitive and do what they like, not what they need. "
Amina's colleague Ajla Hećimović also wants to invite girls to attend CNC training, and she shared her impressions with us: "First of all I would like to emphasize that I am very satisfied with the experience I have gained on this course. The instructors of this training are very capable in their work, are ready to help and explain all the ambiguities with a great deal of respect and patience. Also, when I attended this course, I realized that I did not learn at the university a lot of things that I needed for my profession.
I am motivated to learn in this field every day by observing the pace of industry development. I want to keep up with this pace and build myself as an individual who will be part of this development tomorrow. I think that this kind of education will get me better acquainted with my profession and will be able to get started in any field of industry related to CNC machines.
I advise all my especially girls colleagues who want experience and knowledge to take this step. I am positively surprised, and I believe that they will. "

IUS LIFE congratulates our hardworking students as well as instructor Adnan Skulj and thanks for the trust shown in our work.
The next CNC training is planned for the month of June.
